DEAL ALERT: SUCCULENTS

Who knew you could buy succulents from Amazon?


My husband saw an ad in one of his feeds and said I should share these deals with you. So, that's what I'm doing. Nice of him to be on the lookout for good deals we might all be interested in. :-) 


I love the look of succulents in every type of container and in any room. On tables tops, in book shelves, in vignettes--succulents add character to any space. I've had a few over the years (the two above), and I guess I should confess that they didn't last too long. I'm going to attempt to grow them again this summer. I definitely learned the key to keeping them alive is not to over water. I've done a bit of reading and research since I lost the first few I had, so I feel up to the succulent-growing task again.  

Here's what I found on Amazon, and if you've priced these plants at all lately, you'll see why these are good deals.  

The plants come in assorted packs and in several different quantities. Here are just a few examples of the assortments Amazon has to offer. (Affiliate links)



















How cute is this idea for planters?

This would be a great idea for a hostess gift or I know some teachers who would love this for an end-of-the-year gift. :-)

Here's another idea. Pick up random tea cups and saucers at thrift stores and use them for planters.

Look how pretty they are in milk glass.

They're pleasing in just about anything.

  10. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up
    what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced
    blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    1. I'm not an expert by any means. I'm just blogging part-time. My best advice would be to stick with it. It takes time to find your voice and your audience and what your readers want to see from you. It takes commitment and practice. Good luck!
