Simply Succulent

I certainly don't have a green thumb (Mike is typically the keeper of life when it comes to plants around here), but I do love to work in my yard and now that we've been here five years, I really look forward to spring and seeing all of my plants come back to life.

I've noticed a trend lately in magazines, online, etc., using succulents to decorate indoor and outdoor rooms, so being the trendy thing I am, I had to give it a try. And I figure since these little suckers don't require much attention, maybe I can keep them alive?

Last weekend I hit up the local Lowes and picked out a couple of cute little guys, then went to a garden center to buy some not-so-generic plants to give my succulent arrangement a little originality. Next challenge was to find something to plant them in. Everything I saw in Lowes was too big, too deep or too expensive, same with the garden store. Every once in a while I'll find a good planter at True Value, so I stopped by on the way home and found the perfect planter - shallow and under five bucks!

Then all it took was a little dirt (free from my yard!!!) and I made this cute little arrangement. I was so excited about my project, a little rain couldn't even keep me from it. Now, if I could only decide where I want to put it...

...and can you guess what our next project is this weekend???? Painting that awful deck!!!!


  1. I love it!! There is something about those puffy plants that is so crisp and spring! My son and I just planted a miniature garden using these and some cute accessories from Hive for the Home. Check it out Awesome post...even if you have a hard time keeping it sure can put it together! ;)

  2. I love succulents! Such a pretty arrangement!


    p.s. I have a dress giveaway going on now!!

  3. I love your arrangement of the succulents. They are some of my favorite plants. I recently saw some planted in a huge seashell. LOVED IT! Now I want to go buy some. :)

  4. They look awesome! I did the same thing...went to Lowes and bought some succulents! I am loving them right now. I love, love how full your pot is though. It looks great!

  5. No green thumb required, you say? NICE! I swear, you make everything you touch look pretty. Good job!

  6. they look great Wendy! I just put some in a strawberry pot- the ones with several different holes- and they are cute too.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
