How cute are these fair trade recycled rice bags? I just love the colours- enough to brighten any window sill on even the dullest of days. Of course you can fill the little bags with whatever you like but I think they’d look really attractive placed together as plant pots. Each design is unique and they really catch the eye!

I found this image via Apartment Therapy, isn’t it a great idea? The bright colours of the Twinings tea boxes are really eye-catching. I think it helps that the boxes are all the same size, as a mixture of different sizes could just look cheap and untidy, whereas this display looks planned and intentional.
If you’re lucky enough to have some vintage containers hidden away in your garden shed, dig them out! Otherwise the best places to find some are in traditional-style farm shops such as Westmorland in Cumbria , in garden centres or at Christmas time when limited edition gift boxes are on sale. Be creative!
