Valentine’s Planter?

This month’s Lowe’s Creative Blogger team challenge was “Will you be my Valentine?”.

I was browsing the aisles and came across this delightful pot.

(Is it still a pot when there are 3 vessels?)

It would be darling with herbs or small flowers in it, if it’s warm enough for those to be available in your neck of the woods.  Here, however?

The only thing that’s growing are the piles of snow on the sides of my driveway.

So, buy one (or 5) of these darling pots (they’re around $10), and grab some dry erase markers.

Start writing love notes…or drawing…or doodling…anything that will make your valentine’s day.  And, if you screw up?  Wipe it off!  (Note:  A couple of my markers didn’t erase as well as others.  They all came off with a Clorox wipe, though.)

Fill it with treats and gift away!




And how about a few ideas of what the recipient (or you) can do once the treats are gone (or if you bought 5 of them because you clearly have a problem just for kicks?

What about having the whole class write messages for the teacher on it?  You could try that Sharpie/baking it trick that’s floating around on Pinterest or buy some actual paint pens if you wanted it to be permanent.

The purpose for which it was intended?


I’d love to hear some other usage suggestions, if you’ve got any.  You know…since I couldn’t just buy one. Open-mouthed smile

Also, Lowe’s is truly one of my favorite stores to hit up when we are forced get to make Valentine boxes for the kids.  Remember this one from a couple years back?


Every part of that came from Lowe’s:  moving boxes cut and taped back together in proper sizes, white contact paper, toilet seat, flusher, bolts to hold the boxes together…ALL of it.

That same year Keller took this,


which is a bucket from the paint department that he decorated with some stickers his grandma had given him for Christmas.
