Succulent Garden in Vintage Containers and Tidbits

The past two weeks have been very, very busy for me . . .

~ ~ and this past weekend was no different. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ a local tournament of my hubby’s and 2 sets of company to prepare for.

Hydrangea Bouquet

I gathered what little blooms I had on my hydrangea bush and placed them in the guest room bath.

I even had a couple of blooms to place in the kitchen . . . oh how I miss these flowers this year!

We have had four trips in a matter of two weeks . . . that’s how we roll around here.

On one of those trips, I ventured “away from the ballfields” . . .

~ ~ and went antiquing with my friend Merry in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

We found this great place of a cluster of antique shops.

In one of the shops “Picket Fence Antiques” . . . I found these great succulent gardens.

I loved these and LOVED the price!…the blue swirled enamelware succulent garden was $15.00 . . .

~ ~ and the white enamelware garden was $12.00.

I could not buy the containers and succulents for that price !!!

I found lots of bargains that day!

Vintage painted table

Like this table that was in a booth in which all of the furniture and items were 50% off !

Vintage painted table

Loved the top of this table . . . and with 50% off, this table was a little less than $50.00

I did get more great bargains that I will share later.

In the meantime, between travels and such . . .

~ ~ my granddaughter and I have been working on “her space” . . .

Here is a little of what we worked on last week.

Fairy Garland

We added “fairies” . . . she was so great in placing them just in the right spot!

The weekend was very rainy and dreary . . . so photos were a bit hard to take.

Precious Moments Japanese Doll

Placed accessories about and she finished painting the lamp.

As I stated above, the weekend was filled with company and a tournament . . .

Carolina Cobras

They won!!…They are the Eastern National SSUSA Tournament winners in their division. . .

~ ~ so off they go in the Fall to Vegas to compete for the National Championship…Congrats Carolina Cobras!

My hubby is the one holding the trophy!

Have a most wonderful day and hope you had a great weekend too!!

  6. So much fun to see your “finds”, Shirley! You are so right about those adorable gardens…you couldn’t buy the supplies for those prices. Congrats on your husband’s team winning their division. My sons used to love to play baseball and I loved going to their games. Maybe my husband will take up playing as a hobby and we can enjoy going to the diamonds in the summers again.

  20. Question: Do the guys play fast or slow pitch softball? I’m sure they are strutting, enjoying their championship, great at any age.
    Leave it to you to find treasures. I wouldn’t have passed on the succulent garden either.

  36. Wow, congratulations to Tommy and his team. Great job. I love succulents, and the way you surrounded them and tucked them into beautiful containers is amazing. Gray must be over the moon with her own space in the house. I just love everything, and the lamp she painted turned out beautifully! Lucky little beautiful girl.
