Collectors are

by nature

what I like to call

‘Good Finders’.

In addition,

if I am out and about,

I am going to ‘Find Something’.

And lately, I have found

multiple pieces of vintage Mexican pottery.


And in the spirit of

a little copying from two wonderful blogs,

Antique Chase


The Polished Pebble,

I now have a small succulent


in one of my new vintage Mexican pieces of pottery.

I am not a fan of large cactus,

(I grew up on a ranch in South Texas, and I have seen my share),

but the small ones are wonderful.

At Wal Mart I bought a small bag of this.


I first spotted larger succulents, but they were a little


Then I turned the corner and found small sizes

ranging in price from $2.50-$4.00.



My next project is to plant a small succulent garden in

one of my silver plate serving pieces.

Visit these amazing blogs.

You will be as inspired as I was.

I love succulents. And I really like the idea of planting some in a silver dish - the colors will look wonderful, I think.

I live in the desert so I do as you and plant small succulents in containers. They look great in silver containers...that's the only thing I plant mine in. The green and silver make a nice combination. Have fun.

well i now know we are in good company.
i fell in love with succulents a few years ago.

it was because i saw a gorgeous center piece.
it was a jade plant set in a very long and low planter.
it was so architectural!!
it was fabulous

Your succulent garden turned out GREAT!

Darla said...

Yep, great your container!

That pottery is so cool! What do you suppose the story is about it? I've never seen that pattern before. Does it say on the bottom where it was made??
Great post!

Succulents are so interesting to me. I love your Mexican pottery. Can't wait to see your silver plate arrangement.


Rita said...

Aren't succulents amazingly beautiful? they will look so good when you get the arrangement finished!

I love succulents. I don't have a good track record with them, however. I have noted your potting mix and maybe I'll try again - something for the deck maybe. Love your mexican pottery.
