Oh Criminy girlfriend,

Let me know if you ever sell any of those planters. I collect them, too and I see two that I can't live without.....;o)

Today's weather should be cooperating for you. I hope you're enjoying my state.



What this?? No Scottie planters!!


Hi Laurie,
Oh what a beautiful collection!!
I especially love the giraffe
and two sweet birds! They truly
do not make planters like this
anymore. I think when you want
to order a baby bouquet for someone
now, it is usually just a plain
basket or glass container. :(
Thank you for sharing this collection and I hope you are having the best Spring break vacation with your family.
Please show us your collection of
vintage egg cups if you have them.

I love old planters and you have a very sweet collection here.

I also pick them up when I find them and they're usually not too expensive. I've collected several of the donkey & cart planters and think they're just so cute! My best find was a stork & baby planter made by McCoy in the 50's, but I also love my blue McCoy lamb planter. I have so many planters and no plants (I kill them just be being around them!).

Such a sweet collection! I'm so attracted to these, and I would for sure go nuts collecting them if only I had the space to display them!


I pick these up to resell a lot, but I only have one that I covet - a sweet clown head vase that my Daddy sent to the hospital when I was born. :) (And, I hate clowns - but this one is special!)

Hope your vacay is fun, fun, fun!


Put cupcake paper skirt on those little people planter and it would look like a Magpie Ethel Design.

Love the all planters but the giraffe is my favorite.

Do you have a collection of safety pin/ bead art. I have a few pieces of vintage but I even buy new things if I find it.

Thanks, Debra

Laurie, You collect old planters which are my favorite as well! The bead characters are my favorite! Elizabeth

Your collections are always so well curated -- each one of these is adorable but I especially love the little beaded people and the lamb with his ear flipped up. He looks like he's saying "Is the baby crying?"

Hope you're having a great time in AZ. 30 degrees here this morning. Just sayin'...


Love them! I started picking up (what I call) animal planters back in the 80's and I have 100's of them (mostly packed away). I have purged twice and then regretted losing the ones sold, LOL!

Love the stork!


Love the birdy one! ♥ I have a few planters, too!
