I picked up this lovely white jug to serve milk at the breakfast table but it started leaking within five uses and I was most disappointed. I didn’t want to chuck it because it was so beautiful and simple so I used it as a planter. It’s a nice clean looking pot so I can put it on the dining table once in a while without ruining the way the table looks.
I seem to be turning into a hoarder because the OA was picking up Carlsberg beer and I didn’t know what to do with the lovely green bottles. I didn’t want to chuck them either. So this is where I used them.
This is a skylight in our kitchen. At various times its displayed a variety of crockery but with my penchant for greenery I badly wanted to put some plants up there. Nothing seemed feasible because you need a ladder to get up there and it would be crazy to have to get up there and water plants everyday. So I saved up the bottles and put moneyplants in them. The best part is that the light filters through the green bottles and casts a lovely green calming colour around the kitchen. Nice, na?!
And while we’re on the topic of decor, allow me to spread some link love.
I’d like to start with Roshnee Desai who has a range of awesome cushions called Batootas. Aren’t they just the coolest things to own?!
And from there, moving on to Daksha’s Sanchali. They make the most beautiful earrings and stuff out of old banarasi pieces.
