~ succulents

I surprise myself with this new obsession of mine...

I've never been that interested in succulents before, but I'm not sure I've ever seen them look like this...







Check out the succulents in this vignette!

I'm not brave enough to do succulent planters, but aren't they beautiful?




Pinterest reveals succulent weddings...





 and succulent-filled containers...



 and succulent wreaths!


If you are into DIY, click here for instructions to make a succulent wreath.

Or buy one from Viva Terra here.

 I couldn't resist...

Are you as obsessed as I am?

I have just a few succulents in my garden, but these photos make me think I need more of them. I love the idea of a succulent wreath. It would be so pretty on my front door.

Thank you for sharing. And may I add that opening your page is like a wonderful pop of cheer with your header photos.
