shells & succulents




Hello.. hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
Warming up here, it's feeling like summer already. 
I think we're in for a hot, dry one so I've decided to stick to plants I don't have to water much. The succulents are multiplying and even grow happily without soil in a small amount of water in shells and bottles.


This is a collection of things I put together. I like the mix of the greens and aquas of the glass bottles and fishing floats with succulents and shells.  




see you next time

  8. I LOVE your vignette! The colours are so pretty, and the combination of elements and textures adds so much interest. I collect glass fishing floats, so I have to say that those are my favourite part of the vignette :-) Is the large one authentic?

  10. What a gorgeous collection, the succulents compliment the sea glass so well, they are about the only things that survive in my garden in the summer heat. Guess that's what happens when your living on the world's largest island!
