Roving Reporter La Reine’s Hungarian Bathtub Herb Garden

THE ANTIQUES DIVA™ TOURS – CLOSED FOR ANNUAL VACATION DURING AUGUST – REOPENS SEPTEMBER While my tour guides are taking a much needed holiday and I’m away for the month of August sipping champagne at sunset on a Mediterranean Cruise (after taking a driving tour of Italy), I haven’t forgotten you, my loyal readers, in my absence. August 2008 you’ll enjoy a multitude of guest blogs, pre-posted light blogs and miscellaneous reader questions. Don’t worry, I’ll be back with more great addresses and shopping tips this fall! All email inquiries or posted comments will be responded to come September!


top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Roving Reporter La Reine emailed a few weeks ago with a sensational idea! She’d recently moved into a penthouse apartment in Manhattan and was looking for ways to decorate her huge wrap-around balcony. While surfing the net, La Reine discovered a vintage Hungarian Baby Bath Tub at Garnet Hill and decided that it would make the perfect home for an herb garden! Apparently it was a limited item as I can’t find this item for sale on the Garnet Hill website anymore, but regardless of where you buy your baby bath tub – the idea is a sensational one! As I have a roof-top terrace as my back yard, I am always searching for planters and this photo has me rethinking how I will go forward with planning my plantings this fall!

Repurposing antique and vintage unique objects such as bath tubs, or lobster pots, or any number of things, are an excellent way to make a diva-worthy eye catching display
