crafting doesn't get much simpler Smiley
I drilled some holes in the bottom of the pot part of this old and unused 'tea for one' set* which works really well, since the cup part acts as a drip tray to avoid mess Smiley

* I used a masonry drill and just went really slowly. I found using a standing drill easier than a hand held one - more control so I could go slower and avoid breaking the ceramic (actually, I'm not sure exactly what the pot is made of, I don't think it's porcelain)

This is my chilli plant. Her name is Dormouse. She seems happy in her new home, even if I didn't manage to replant her right in the middle of the pot  Grin

What a fun way to reuse a tea pot!  I love the colors - they're perfect for this spring.
