After all of the holiday decorations have been taken down everything looks so bare!
The shelf under this window in the media/library room looked particularly drab and boring, definitely it needed a little perking up. I really wanted something fresh and natural to enliven the space. So...
...although I have very few flowers in the garden this time of year, I do have lots of succulents ~ I shopped the garden and put together this arrangement of cuttings in an old soup tureen. I lined the tureen first with plastic to protect it and added potting soil.
A few books, a Corday bird figure and voila, it's complete.
And one of the best parts: this simple succulent arrangement will last through several months, the cuttings will eventually root and I can plant them back out in the garden ~ a complete win-win!
I am so pleased with this that I think I will do another one for the dining room table. I love it when something is so easy...and free!
What do you think?
