Happy Birthday to my little sister

Happy Birthday to my little sister Sheri who is 57 years old today.

I made her a few Hypertufa pots for her birthday & filled them with plants.

We both love our plants and planters & we both love being creative.

Here is a picture of the largest planter with succulents and sedum. This pot is 20″ across and 10 ” deep. It is a bowl type planter and I love the look of them.

Every planter I make has slight imperfections in it but that is what makes them so unique.

Do something creative today that can bring joy to someone else.

The succulent Purslane

This beautiful succulent is called Purslane or Portulaca.

It is an annual it works well in pots or planted in a flower bed.

The flowers bloom like crazy as long as the sun is shining but they close up every evening.

This plant is a good bang for the buck for instant, fast-growing color.

DIY – Succulent table

Recently I was on an auction site that had the baby change table tops that go on top of a chest of drawers.

I started bidding and believe it or not these things are $150.00 – $200.00 each. I ended up winning 4 of them for a grand total of $22.00 for all of them.

After staring at them a few days I came up with the idea to use to some table legs I already had and make a succulent table.

I had my husband put the legs on the table and reinforce it then I mixed up some grey chalk paint and painted it all. We then lined the inside with some of the leftover greenhouse plastic.

It was starting to look pretty good. I went to Lowes to check out the clearance rack and low and behold there was a large pot of succulents piled in this container that would be $12.00. Well, that was a bargain because small succulents are generally $3.00 each this was about $75.00 worth of stuff.

We added some soil and I planted it and I love the way it turned out. It sits on our back porch and really seems to like the area.

As far as the other 3 changing table tops I gave one to my sister, and we are making the grandkids a lego table with the biggest one it is a foot longer than the others. That leaves me one to do something with and I am thinking it might make a good potting table.

Use your imagination to figure out how to repurpose something into something new you never know what you might come up with.
