Canisters As Planters

Hello there dear blog readers!
I took my orphaned tin canisters down from the kitchen cabinets and assigned them to the porch!
  Cute huh?
They are on the front steps now but photographed better here on the porch table.
These canisters have been shared 17 times on facebook already!
So fun!
My boys took me hiking for Mother's day!  
It was just a 2 1/4 mile hike to Elk River lower falls but I LOVED it!  
It was my first hike since developing Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis AND Arthritis!
I had to bring a ski pole along but I DID IT!
Oh what I wouldn't give to have JUST lower back problems again!  

If you haven't hit 50 yet- ENJOY!

I use to plant old tins with flowers in front of Kylee's playhouse. Yesterday after church I planted 3 with Begonias to sit inside and old dresser. Really won't see the tins that well. Not as old as yours. I use to collect them as they came out back in the 70's. The hike sounds so fun. I got up at 6:30 to go on a hike with two of neighbors. She said she would pick me up at 7. Never showed. Must have forgot or didn't go.
