Not Totally Letting Go!!!


There are so many things I will miss about living in our home of 37 years. One of the things I actually posted on my Facebook page yesterday and everyone was telling me to TAKE it with me, was this wall planter that hangs by my front door.

Trust me there was a great debate about several things we are leaving, and this was one of them.

 I purchased it years ago, and knew that someday it might rust out or fall apart, so I have kept my eyes open for years for another one. 

Before I finally decided to leave it, I had to make sure I could find another one.

Well, three days ago I found one. I was like a little kid that just got their first bike for Christmas.

In fact it  is even better, it can be hooked up to a pump, and it will serve as a wall fountain once we move into a new house, or we can use it as a planter, whatever works out best for the new application.

So all my wonderful Facebook friends can rest assured, Kathysue will get to have another one of these in her life again!

I actually found it online and have already ordered it in flat black. It is on a 3 week back order so hopefully it will arrive before we move……


Thank you all for your support and concerns about me leaving my pretty little wall planter, but you see Kathysue is a planner, so all is well with my world!!

That's great that you found a replacement! When we sold one of our homes I double checked with the buyers to find out if they wanted extras like that. You might find out that the buyer loved it or didn't want it so that could be an option too. I'm imagining they'd want it but some people aren't too bright! Lol...

Oh, we are in the throws of making the same decisions about many, many things at this house. We'll be moving into our new house in a couple of months after living here for 34 years. It's no easy process for sure!
