Kitchen sponges and brushes not on your mind at the garden center.


Kitchen sponges and brushes might not be on your mind when you are visiting your local garden center but take a closer look……

I really do like all kinds of containers but the ripple top variety is my favorite. You don’t need a plant in them because as you see here…..looks pretty with red fruit resting inside. Well, I’m really showing this container down in front..see it…

Notice that is has a dish attached to the bottom.

There is another wonderful use for this pot.

It is…


nice place to put your..

wet sponges and kitchen brush.

The excess water from these items will drain out the bottom and it won’t cause mildew. The saucer on the bottom holds the water till it evaporates.

It sure looks lots better than having the sponges and brushes laying around hither and yon.

    Hi, I know this is random, but I noticed a few years ago, you wrote on a gardening blog regarding a relative GEORGE HEINLEIN (hineline) & wanting to visit the family graveyard-did you ever get there or find any photos? I heard it is near obliterated so I was hoping someone, somewhere has some photos. Can you help or lead me to any other family info? Thanks!


    1. Michelle, no one ever got back with me. I too wish I had photos. He was a popular man of that time and in that region. I would bet there are photos. It would be odd if someone didn’t have something. You will probably find it before I do as I have gone on to other members of the family. You can google his name and find much about him. Good luck with it.


  2. Great idea and look in the kitchen, Anna. I like the image above too. It really is a handsome display.

    enjoyed your info. I never thought of using them in the kitchen..I have my eye on a pretty red one at the market. I usually don’t buy small pot for outside due to the hot weather but using them in the kitchen for storge and table setting..great idea..
