Aside from their natural beauty, they are extremely easy to put Continue reading

Today I'm working on our deck and put together this succulent wall planter to bring some green life to the space.

Make an Inexpensive Hanging Air Plant Terrarium From a Holiday Ornament

A couple months ago I shared some inexpensive holiday ornaments I came across while browsing the festive isles being stocked for the upcoming season.  The moment I spotted one of the $2 ornaments this vision of a hanging terrarium immediately popped in my head.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We managed to escape for a couple of days along with our family and had a blast taking in the great outdoors.As I prepared to get my front garden beds in order this year I decided to take advantage of the over flowing succulents and plant a few inside to enjoy as well.

Succulents are incredibly simple to propagate as well - always Continue reading

I thought I would do a little spin on the wreath and make a hanging basket today instead. I just can't wait for the plants to perk up and fill in! I started with a simple wall basket that Continue reading
