Decorating your home for Marla

I’ve been getting so many great compliments from friends, neighbors and readers about the seasonal pots on my front porch. I loved putting them together, but I’m smitten with the reaction. So I want to share them! And hopefully, I can contribute to a great cause along the way.

My husband’s sister was recently diagnosed with Gliomatosis Cerebri. A hideous form of brain cancer that is rare and difficult to treat. For my sister-in-law, the symptoms didn’t manifest themselves until very late, and she and her family are being robbed of a great life. She is one of the most wonderful and caring people I know, and I feel helpless watching her struggle with the treatment.

So I’ve decided to give away the pots to the highest bidder and donate the funds to a local organization, HEADRUSH, a non-profit that is helping to fund brain tumor research. The proceeds from the auction directly benefit the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center in the form of a Brain Tumor Research Professorship Award.


I hope I can use my love for gardening and planting to make some kind of difference. No matter how small. I hope you can use this opportunity to not only decorate your home with some great looking pots, but also contribute to a great cause. Interested? Here’s how to get started… I’ve posted the pots on EBay.



Here are some details about the pots…
  • The pots themselves are lifers that you’ll enjoy for years to come. They are sturdy, black aluminum.
  • The pots are 17 inches tall and 17 inches square at the top with a tapered base.
  • As decorated, the pots are about five feet tall and 34 inches wide.
  • Each pot comes with its own set of LED twig lights. Literally, lights in the shape of twigs.
