Love for Succulents

Like so many people, I’m a bit obsessed with succulents right now. I’m finding that I want to plant them everywhere. I think they just seem so happy and they are so easy to care for. All the shapes and shades of grays and greens just make them so beautiful.

Now that I’ve finally got my garden going, I’m wanting to add in some potted succulents around the sitting spaces in my back yard.

I’ve got a picnic table where this succulent wreath needs to live.

I’m really wanting to make this succulent walkway happen, but I’d be a little worried they would get stepped on. Maybe for this Valentine’s Day some succulents would be better than flowers. They last forever and they are a great unexpected gift!

Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
