To my pleasant surprise, being a mug and plant nut can be expressed via all different avenues, even when I’m not even trying.
After this post, I must have been all too inspired as I created gifts for a friend’s shower, and another friend’s son’s wedding (not pictured – used same four variety of flowers).
Thought you might enjoy!
Mugs are from Anthropologie.com. Plants from local Walmart.
We had a lovely visit and I cherish our friendship.

I’ve not mentioned much about my progress on the goals I listed because… well, there really hasn’t been much to mention. This weekend I should be able to get a great portion of my organization project done. What a weight will be lifted once this is accomplished! I got a jump start on it tonight. Here are some pics, and of course I managed to sneak in some pics of my seedlings (day 26 – almost a month old, eek!).
Seedlings, pineapple and aloe plant.
I had used the top of the hope chest for my seedlings as of last week, and here’s a peak at how they’re coming along. Getting big!!
What kind of esthetician would I be without the above plant?!?
I’m so loving this grow-your-own-food thing!
I think next year I’ll add cucumbers and tomatoes to my deck garden. Apparently, they’re easier plants and what most people start growing. Not melons. Oops! I also have some squash seeds that I hope to start in my greenhouse soon, so I may have them for Fall.
Do you have any recommendations on what to add to my garden?
I did what might be the unthinkable to some people; I used a fancy schmancy tea cup as a planter.
Upon my great-grandmother’s death, most girls in my family were given a flowered tea cup from her collection. I was given the lily of the valley tea cup, and after several years and a few moves, the delicate handle had broken off the cup. I’ve never been quite sure how to use it ever since. It’s mainly been on display either in my bathroom or on my desk, collecting all sorts of odds and ends. That is until this past Friday night, when I turned it into something just as lovely as it’s intended purpose; it became a planter!
I’m very pleased, just in case you didn’t pick that up, and love the new addition to the couple of plants already occupying a portion of my desk.
Hope this inspires you to use special or every day items in a new way.
(these pictures were taken late that night. sorry for the poor lighting.)
