On recent trips to my local farmer's market I have seen many vendors selling lots of lovely succulents.
In the past I have never been a huge fan of succulents, but suddenly I find them very appealing.
I love their simplicity, their structure, their ease of care, and their wow factor.
Today at Lowe's, I picked out three new succulents.
I can't begin to tell you which ones they were
because I had them out of the pots before I even looked at their names.
On my way home I stopped into my local Goodwill
to look for interesting and inexpensive containers to plant them in.
I found some interesting bowls I thought might work.
Two being the little white pottery barn bowls above,
I love their shape, and for $1.00, you can't find a cheaper planter.
I picked out some of my milk glass containers,
as well as some old silver footed bowls, all previous thrift store finds.
I especially love how the succulents look in the aged silver bowls.
Once I started planting I just couldn't stop.
I was taking bits from the few succulents I have in my own gardens
to add to the different containers I had rounded up.
When I had them all planted, I loaded them up in this garden basket also found at Goodwill today,
and took them up to my private little nook outside of my bedroom.
I purchased the cutest little vintage tea cart at a local antique store a few weeks ago,
and I've been looking for just the right plants to add to it.
I think these are the ones, they aren't too big, and they aren't too fussy.
So here is my first attempt at arranging my new goodies on my cart.
Hmmm. It was feeling a little too busy for me, so I edited out a few planters,
and this is the arrangement I ended up with.
Simple and clean...
this way I can add some cute little tea time goodies in the future.
Maybe a cute little teapot, and some sweet tea cups.
I would really love to find some adorable tea towels too.
Okay, now my wheels are turning.
Somehow I think this isn't the last you will see of my tea cart.
