As the end of summer approaches, the time is coming to think of ways to help bring the outdoors in. Filling a home with plants can add a lot of life and color especially during the sparce winter months, but so often plants come in terrible plastic pots that to nothing for any home's overall design. Fortunately, the creative people over at Etsy have a wide aray of unique planter options for almost any home. Keep reading to see a few of our favorites.
