dino-mite... it's my newest planter

deep___roots(ca9/sunset15)March 21, 2012

From the local Goodwill, this is a coin bank apparently sold previously at Target for 12.99.

I looked at it and took a flyer for a couple a bucks.

After several million file strokes applied to the coin slot located on dino's back, I have this.

So there are 4 existing drainage holes...the opening to get the coins out and 3 of the 4 feet has a hole.

I guess the other foot is closed because of how these are fired.

Planted a piece of my elephant food after adding soil. We'll see how it works out. I quite like it.

Gratuitous shot of jade garage sale buy for 3 bucks. The big one at the back.

I said, "Oh yeah, that works for me. Here's the 3."

Waiting for the garage sales and flea markets to start up in my area.

That dino is cute! If you notice little bites out of your plants, you'll know who to blame. That's quite a good haul you have there for $3!
