Would you like a Mug of Succulent?

I was flipping through a book today (but now I can't remember which one it was), and I saw the cutest little thing!  They had taken old tea cups and mugs and planted little cacti and plants in each one.  I thought I'd try my hand at it!

I went to my neighborhood Goodwill store.  They always come through for me!  I picked up a set of 4 super cute retro mugs.

Then I swung by Walmart and grabbed a plant and some dirt.  

Or as my university geology professor would say:  "It's not 'dirt'.  'Dirt' is a term used by housewives.  This is 'soil'."

Anyway, I divided the plants up and put them each in their own mug.  I think they're pretty darn cute!

One is a birthday gift, one is an office warming gift, and two are 'just because' gifts!

  1. They are lovely retro mugs - seems a shame to fill 'em with dirt! LOL
