FINISHED AUCTION FIND AND MULTI POT HANGER

I have had a busy creative day and love my results.
Back on Mother's Day my Figgy brought me to an Antique and Craft Show. (You can see the fun post here.) At this show we purchased this black wrought iron thingy. A few days ago I purchased the pots. Do you know what the black thingy is??I lugged all of my supplies out on the sun deck to work.
Using the burlap roll I cut some strips and placed in the pots so it would hang over.
Some summer silk flowers and such.
This brown metal stand I purchased at the local auction last Saturday. I knew just what I wanted to do with it when I saw it.
The burlap roll I purchased at Michael's, this is a new find for me. I love, love this stuff.
More supplies for my projects.
Here is the finished pots. The black wrought iron piece is what is holding these pots together.
I did not purchase anything to create this except the moss (the moss was used for the brown wire thing) and that burlap roll (acutally I will be using the burlap on some tags), the hanger, and the pots of course.. I was determined to use what I already had.
This hangs right by the entrance to the house on the porch.
I do like how this turned out.
It has a little bit of this and a little bit of that all mixed in.
The brown metal basket is a double nest. I Love, love this.
I will enjoy decorating this for the holidays, fall, thanksgiving, the Christmas holiday and more.
