Guess the origin of these planters!
Isn't this ingenious? I was salivating over my neighbor's beautiful new planters a few months ago, thinking they'd been appropriated from Big Red Sun or something for a big pile of dough, and then my neighbor (she's an architect) came out to chat and filled me in... she made them herself from the drawers of old filing cabinets. She got the filing cabinets from Texas State Surplus, which is a great resource if you need some beat up old office furniture OR scissors, pocket knives, leathermen, or toy guns... they sell all the stuff people end up having to throw out when they're going through the metal detector at the airport. Bonanza!
