Dollar store style: pots for houseplants

While we're busy planting and primping in the garden, we shouldn't forget that houseplants need love too. If your ivy is in need of a new home, check out the selection of pots at the dollar store. Whether you're looking for plain or fancy, large or small, clay or plastic, a buck is all you pay for each. The latest addition to the mix is the small ceramic pot with an attached saucer pictured here. I liked this one with the raised pattern around the rim, but there are lots of other styles and colors, too. I thought them very attractive but knew I'd never plant anything in something that small. I would, however use it for a votice candle holder or anchor some floating flowers in a bed of stones for display on an end table.

And don't forget to check out the different sizes of plastic planters for use outdoors.
