- My Great Finds by Linda
- My Great Finds is all about my love of treasure hunts and transformations. The hunts at garage sales, thrift shops, estate sales, flea markets and possible some dumpster diving. The transformations will show you how to give new life and purpose to an old item that has seen it's day.

I would like to think the history of this pot was sauce sitting on a stove Sunday morning simmering away with meatballs, sausage and possible some braciole.
Maybe on Wednesday it was a stew simmering all day filled with meat and vegetables. I'm starting to get hungry.
But I have to tell you when I saw this pot with it's wonderful patina, I wasn't thinking about cooking. I saw it as a hanging flower pot filled with red geraniums or possible a place to put rolled up white towels for a guest bathroom. I didn't see a cooking pot, no I didn't. Unfortunately the customers walking thru my booth didn't see those things I envisioned, they probably saw Grandmother's old cooking pot.
I needed to help them to see my vision. Now I could of purchased some white towels, rolled them up displayed in the pot but that would of added considerable amount to the retail price. I opted to give it some help showcasing it as a possible hanging planter.
I went to Michaels and purchased some sheet moss. and cut strips and glued them all around the top edge of the pot with my trusty glue gun. The pot and the moss now shouts I've been REBORN.
I liked the way it came out and I priced it a bit higher than before. I priced it at my booth for $10.00 It makes for an adorable interesting different planter. Oh yes I also added a burlap bow for good measure. I love burlap!
