OH, SWEET SUCCULENTS!

Hello all and happy Spring! Although, I hate to say that it still feels like the dead of winter here in good ole Charlottesville (seriously, 35 degrees here people!). Oh, how I dream of warmth!

To give myself a bit of a Spring tease, however, I recently toted home a handful of succulents to strategically place around the house. But let me give you a little backstory first…

A few weeks ago my parents decided to pass off a vintage tea set to me. Despite the fact that I really don’t drink tea and have very little storage left in a home lacking closet and cabinet space…it’s impossible for me to turn down anything free and vintage! So I happily lugged it home and plopped the box in a corner of the dining room to sit for the next week.

Now, I’m quite the pro at letting things sit in corners for months at a time, but I’m really making the effort to actually use everything in my home – sort of a “use or lose” philosophy. So with that said, I unpacked the tea set and went about finding it a home, but with a vagrant tea set and a handful of succulents also without an abode, my aha! moment quickly struck….

A few more succulents here and there and voila! A little bit of indoor Spring whimsy. If only the outdoors would acquiesce…

Oh Spring, where art thou?

  1. Not here in RVA! We have 3″ of snow on the ground, crazy! I love the use of the vintage tea set! I really hope real spring comes soon.. I’m trying to get ready for the Luckett’s Spring Market and it’s a little hard with the weather this cold!
