Mini DIY project from this past weekend. 
When I found this vintage flour sifter at a thrift shop for .50 cents I immediately saw it as a repurposed planter. . . i mean c'mon, who sifts flour these days?
Since the bottom of the sifter is mesh i found some used tupperware, at the same thrift store, that fit perfectly under the curved mesh bottom.  This means no leaks when you water the plant.  

If you are having a hard time finding a cheap sifter of your own here are some links to cute ones on Etsy

Instead of pre-stirring them, I always sift my dry ingredients when baking, in a sifter just like that one. Guess I'm just old-fashioned. :-)
