Stoned Peat Pots

My peat pots are stoned.





I was making a few of my fleur-de-lis peat pots,


and decided to, not only make a cameo one,



but give them both a little more depth.  I gave them a wash of grey, followed by a dry brush of white.


Now they have a look similar to weathered stone.






I love playing with these.

As Betsy said, "You'd never know these weren't really stone."

I read the word 'peat' but it didn't register, and I thought that the gray-washed pots were your terracotta ones until I read Betsy's comment! That should give you an idea of how much like stone they look! Amazing work, as always, Rosemary.♥ xoxo

These are absolutely elegant and lovely, Rosemary! And all using the humble peat pot! No one would ever know! I love playing around with them, too, but wouldn't have thought of this!

Would love for you to link them up to Blissful Whites Wednesday! It's still open!

Thanks for the inspiration! Hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
