Vintage Thimble Planters

View all 5 Photos

In a world with so much Regretsy, it’s a relief to see an Etsy shop so genuinely charming. Patricia of DoodleBirdie repurposes old thimbles into miniature planters, filling them to the brim with 1” of live moss. Each thimble is unique, and you can choose how to care for your plant—with either more water or, simply, sun—making it the perfect flexible gift.
