Sunday Stills-Potluck Assignment

Over at Sunday Stills, our assignment this week was Potluck. So here is what I came up with.....



Some POTS!

And I'm guessing they are pretty lucky cause they ended up as decorations to an entryway instead of trash in the dump!

This place is on the way to our cattle lease. They have five of these toilets at their entry lined up. Aren't they too funny. They have various other "flower pots" but I think these were the best!

How clever! And it fits right in with the "green" movement. Made me chuckle.

OMFG
Last year when my parents were in Florida someone dumped a toilet a field over. We totally intended to pick it up and leave it near out front porch where my mom complained nothing grew in the garden but there were two factors. 1-dad would have tried to move it and put out his back 2- it sat there for three weeks and then some kids came along and smashed it up :C

We were going to fill it with fake flowers too since it was winter.

Nice use, I'm sure Jonh Krapper would be proud to see his invention used in such a brilliant way... :-)

LOL! Great use of old toilets!

I have an old bath tub as a water feature in my yard. Would love to have had an old toilet too......and am still looking for one in fact. But I think I will plant something green and viney in it since it will have such good drainage.

Do you drive down my road?! My neighbor's yard is full of these lovely creations! And anything else you can get a flower to grow in! How funny! I wish I had a clever toilet pun - but my brain is flushed right now!

Well, they can't say they didn't have a pot to pee in. They just chose to utilize it differently. I won't ask where they actually go. If their toilets are repurposed for flowers, I don't wanna borrow a vase from them!

This is too funny, including all the puns and comments!

What a clever idea! A great way to make use of a toilet that isn't needed IN the home any longer....

Great photos!

I didn't even realize they were toilets until I got to the bottom of your post. Doh!

Speaking of toilets- while we were at the Boat & RV show, they had toilet racing. They had two motorized toilets that you could race around on inside an oval. Pretty crazy.
