I have shared before that I may have a few too many pieces of silverplate.
I have the tangled proof in my cabinets.
This is all a result of finding pieces I could not live without at my usual haunts: thrift stores and the flea market.
After a time, however, with certain collections, there are some ships that have sailed, right?
For example, I don’t think the White House is calling to ask me to host a state dinner any time soon.
My compromise? I took a few of the least ‘precious’ pieces from my stash and added succulents.
(I wrote about that here , in a post titled Swelled Up at The Flea Market.
I have also written about succulents here and the magic of combining them with Mexican pottery.)
One thing always leads to another, and I went through my stash looking for more pieces to use.
I found a Revere bowl with dents,
an English tea container,
and another serving dish with an amazing handle.
Here are a few simple tips and the rules I broke along the way.
*The best price on small succulents was at Wal Mart ($2.50 each).
*I also bought a small bag of cactus soil-but I don’t think this is necessary.
*I didn’t worry about drainage.
