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.

      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.
