so, as you know... the daughter and I have been upcycling and (sometimes) restoring stuff we find into new, (hopefully) more functional things. It's a process. And sometimes projects take longer than we thought... or things just don't work out the way we thought... you know how it goes. Anyway. I am a huge lover of plants. When we lived in Albuquerque I had started growing succulents... but once we moved here, they were difficult to find, or more costly than we could do.

This past week, I splurged; and bought half a dozen beauties online. They've arrived.
And after letting them "settle in" for a couple of days.... we went about finding just the perfect containers for them.
The grouping in the photo at the top, are two we are keeping. I've put them in a very old Maxwell House coffee tin that I found in a friend's basement. I love it. I love the kitch, I love that it's coffee... I love the weathered paint. For today's post, I thought I would share with you photos of some of the others... which we will be listing for sale on the yard sale page here. I am thinking they would loook super adorable in someone's office... on the kitchen windowsill... on the kitchen table... there are just so many possibilities. I hope you like them... 
See you all tomorrow.
