Find of the Week:
"ottoman" was found at Dollarama for $4. It's really
just one of those fabric-covered, folding storage squares with a
little extra support in the sides, a vinyl-like covering and a
padded lid. I'd use this as a footstool, but it couldn't support
more than a child's weight, as a seat. Still, it's an attractive
way to keep files, photo albums or other odds and ends neat and
out of sight.
These storage boxes
are packaged folded. They're just under 12-inches square and come
in a few different travel-type patterns.

wondered why I couldn't bring some inside to enjoy, just like any
other flower. Trouble is finding a vase small enough! The
solution: a shot glass. It's the perfect size for holding tiny
flowers like these.

Because I have a hard time keeping plants alive, I have opted to use fake plants in my gardens. You may choose otherwise, but for our purposes here,
plastic is the plant of choice and Iíll show you how to use what you find in the dollar store as shrubbery, trees and grasses.
Hereís what I came up with using different containers. If you see something you like, feel free to copy.
