Hey Folks! I started this blog before pinterest came along, or before I found it, at least. A lot of the posts here are merely links to things I wanted to remember. I need space on my account, so if you find something you like, open the link and then pin it quick, as I will be deleting the posts that are not my original ideas.

From zero houseplants to

Nine, as of today.  Thank you to my dear daughter who picked out most of the varieties for my mother's day gift, and to my next door neighbor, who shared her abundance of hens & chicks with me.

(Apparently I have a thing for succulents. Who knew?)


  1. Hey Andrea-
    I love how you displayed them, so nice. Your apron is darling! I think you could wear it to church. LOVE IT!

  2. I love it!! Look how cute they look all lined up on your ledge. Where did you get all your pots?? I want some too! :)

  3. The pots came from three places:
    The first one is actually a butter dish, lid turned upside down and set back on the serving plate. (I got it for free from Tai Pan long ago)

    The three matching pots in the middle of the next picture came from Target. I just bought 3 more today.

    The rest came from Tai Pan recently as well.
    The rectangle ones are kitchen dishes.

    None of them have drainage holes, so I filled the bottom with big rocks & gravel before I topped them off with soil meant for succulents. They need superb drainage and very little water.
