Succulents in Tea Cups……

This year we have planted succulents in all kinds of containers.  We’ve planted them in chicken feeders, tin cans, and I think my favorite place: tea cups!


They just look good no matter what you plant them in….and wherever you put them. I had these little random pieces of Homer Laughlin china….a tea cup and a creamer, and I love how these little plants look in them on our summer mantel.


No. 1 Son gave his grandmother a pretty fern planted in a vintage gravy boat for Christmas…and she loved it. I love using unique things as planters…pretty much anything that will hold dirt! Have you ever used something as a planter that was not traditionally used as one? I love new ideas…… =)


Happy Monday~

    Your teacup succulents is such a sweet addition to your Summer mantel. I love finding vintage treasures and coming up with different ways to repurpose them.
    Thanks for the inspiration,
