Gardening

I just found a rusty porcelain tub at a sale for $2.00 so of course, I had to plant it. I used some of my dishes from my stash and planted them with Allysum, Moss Rose, Verbena and Violets. I put gravel in the bottom of the teapot and teacup for drainage. I also drilled holes in the bottom of the tub.Still debating if I should spray paint the tub with a pastel color.

    Omg! I have a ton of those plates we ate off them till microwaves came in. I always wondered what to do w/ them, other than setting plants on them. I even have a lot of the wash pans we used them for canning & freezing. Now I'm thinking I need to to

      Keri Hi Keri, nice to see a fellow Michigander. The porcelain rusts where it gets old and wears away from the surface or it gets knicked or scratched. The metal underneath rusts.

      Keri porcelain doesn't rust, but the metal it is covering does! It's just porcelain coated.
