Aw, such cuties!
Aww πŸ₯° how adorable!
We both have a Mackerel and a noire kitty too like my babies. They are great with my plants oddly enough.
@JuJuBeans Harley leaves them alone (Tuxedo). But Tequila turns into murder cat at night and attacks the same pot! 😈
@Hypsie yeah Jules my Macherel is the sassy one, JuJu is the gentleman.
@Hypsie That dragonfly planter is flawless!!!!!!
@ESylvanus oh damn that giant catpaccino planter is awesome!!!!
@JuJuBeans Thank you! I didn’t make that one. I bought a set of 3 at the drug store years ago. It’s special somehow. I saved pieces of the other two even after it broke.
@Hypsie I love that you kept them, I have a very special affinity for dragonflies, even though they’re ferocious predators, bugs gotta eat.
@Hypsie you made some of your planters? Do you sell them?!
@JuJuBeans Thank you for asking! I don’t but honestly they are so easy to make. Air dry clay, watch YouTube videos to make pinch pots, and seal with a few coats of varnish or acrylic paint! I bought all the stuff on Amazon.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU ! I’ve been considering painting terracotta pots. I’ve seen tons of them on Etsy selling for gobs, might be a new hobby.
@JuJuBeans Its fun 🀩 And I don’t mind the bumps n cracks. Just so you know, the clay is terracotta color, but not actually terracotta. They have white too. Don’t forget to seal including the drainage holes. (I bought matte and glossy for different looks.) I use a straw for drainage holes.
