pot me up
Hmmmm....I don't seem to have a recent pic of the front of the house.
Oh! I know!
Lookee, Google street view to the rescue! You can't really see it here, but there is an "open iron" basket that's been sitting out there for a while. While I do love it, it doesn't have to stay there. I think something casual (eg. a grouping of odd-numbered items) would be best. And it should have a cottagey-feel without being too cutesy. (That touch of modern I'm eternally searching for...)
I found some bluish-grey stripey pots at a garden center this weekend, but just wasn't sure. Maybe they would look something like this:
Hmmm....not as blue as that though. They were more subdued in tone.
I've had hankering for some zinc. Might look something like this:
It's been tough to find zinc in this country though. Hey, here are some faux zinc at Target. What about these? I'm not wild about the shape...quite a bit modern, cottagey not so much....but they are different. Hmmm...I just noticed the sizes. A bit small I fear.
I nearly bought some terra-cotta pots with applied "zinc" diamonds this weekend. I do like the cottagey idea of terra cotta, but the brick I veneered to the stoop is very close to terra cotta in color.
Ho hum. Hem haw. Anyone? I do believe the kitchen-remodel-process has broken my decision-making abilities.
