Sweet Little Succulents

When Sean and I were in Yosemite, our Uncle Bill took us, as well as my brother and his Kate, to the historic and beautiful Ahwahnee Hotel for breakfast. As centerpieces on the tables they had these cute little tea cups with succulents growing in them. I would have taken one home, but that's stealing, and stealing is bad, kids. Seriously, though, how cute is this?

(My inspiration)

I went to the thrift store and found a non matching sugar bowl, tea cup and saucer, and creamer. Not that I don't just love old roses...and the time I went to the World's Fair in Spokane...but these babies were crying for spray paint.

(My victims)

I bought little succulents at Home Depot and planted them in my newly spray painted little holders.
I'm very pleased with the way they turned out!

(My mom always had the same Jade plant in our house while
 I was growing up, so I love that I have one now, too.)

Happy Crafting!
