Repurposed Plant Hanger

I have been wanting a plant hanger for our front porch for some time now.  I just couldn't seem to make up my mind as to the style that I wanted.

Lucky for me, darling hubby stepped in and got it done.  He knows that I like things simple and uncomplicated. Putting his iron skills to work, he crafted this custom bracket from the tine of an old hay rake.

The swivel at the hook makes for easy plant rotation.  The hinge allows me to turn the pot away from the house while watering in order to keep the porch floor dry.

The gentle curves and black iron serve as a quiet echo to our lights.

I have to say that I really love how it turned out. After all these years together, it seems that we really can read each others minds.

Wishing you all a beautiful Mother's Day!
