  1. Hi Jen! Your pot is beautiful… everything you do is beautiful! I just noticed your little basket with the loop thingys… I have one just like it! My mom got it as a gift from my brother’s boyfriend (both have since passed) so it’s really special to me. I wonder if they are identical?! That would be a cool coincidence 😎Thank you for being a part of TST!

      Julie, I think I’ve had that for at least 25 years…I guess I always loved vintage things!! A million years ago I worked at a big dept store in downtown Boston and the visual team would sell off all their old props…I think about all the cool stuff I got rid of when I got married and could kick myself!!

  2. I love your confession that it’s been in the basement for a year; totally relate! Great makeover! I just want you to know that I hadn’t ever heard of the term dupe before, until I heard it from you. Perfect, right?

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      OMG, yes Lora…it was right at the base of my basement stairs by my decor hoarding shelves!! I’m so glad I taught you a new word…and it wasn’t even a fresh one!!

  3. This turned out BEAUTIFULLY!! Loving all the gorgeous fall coming out of the vase, too! xoxo, Kristi

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks Kristi!! Oh, I love the dried pods…they look so cool!

  4. Amazing, Jennifer … I would never have looked at that vase and thought I could transform it like this. Your arrangement suits it perfectly. I’m so impressed! xo

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      I wish I had thought of it a year ago instead of almost tripping on it in my basement for a year!!

  5. What a fantastic transformation! I love a good thrifty knockoff, it’s perfect and didn’t cost you a small fortune, win win!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks Laurie!! I appreciate it!!

  6. Love, love, love your vase! The colors you chose are perfect Fall and your arrangement turned out so pretty too! Pinning!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks, my friend!!

  7. Thrift store makeovers are my favorite! Your vase dupe came out so pretty. I like all the techniques you used to give it a whole new life. AND Trader Joe’s is my favorite for florals all year long-THE best! Have a great weekend, Jennifer.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Seriously, Trader Joe’s is one of those “if you know, you know”…oh, and they have the best houseplants too!!

  8. You did a great job transforming this not-so-pretty planter into something gorgeous. You will enjoy decorating with this for years to come.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks Paula!! I’m just mad at myself that I didn’t figure out something to do with it the first year I had it!!

  9. This was such a great save Jennifer, that copper paint makes all the difference! Dang, wish we had a Trader Joe’s close by, those seed pods are amazing!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Oh yes, Trader Joe’s is great for all florals & plants!! I’m kicking myself for not grabbing the little olive trees they had last week!!

  10. This turned out so beautifully! What a wonderful transformation.
