Kindling Keeper

Decorating Good Things 2007, Special Issue Fall 2007

Good-looking garden planters don't have to hibernate all winter. Arranged along a hearth, the containers take their turn as eye-catching elements indoors. In glazed terra cotta or another heat-resistant material, the pots provide a perfect place to stow spilt logs, kindling, and aromatic enhancements, such as dried lavender and pinecones.

Kindling Keeper How-To
1. Look for pots in coordinating textures and tones, but consider pieces in different shapes and sizes to add a pleasing visual rhythm to your fireside.

2. Before bringing pots indoors, clean them with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. If pots have caked-on dirt, soak them until it loosens and then wipe it off. Rinse them again in the spring before using them for plants.

We use a big wicker basket next to the fireplace.

I never had a big pile of it. The fire never goes out from October to May! Lol!

Oh, we have a basket for pellet stove accessories... But it's always too full. I love the idea of using a favorite planter instead of storing it in the shed!
