I wanted to show you how sweet everything was wrapped.
and look what was inside!
A darling beautifully stitched wool applique felt pincushion with a sweet little bird.
A vintage Japanese tile plate, two vanilla candles, Japanese origami paper, vintage buttons and the prettiest collage card. Below is a larger picture if you would like to click on it you will be able to see in more detail.
each brooch is sold individually but it was fun to make up this little popular phrase :)

I have been wanting to make a little succulent mini garden in a pot for a while now.
I've been madly pinning other peoples beautiful succulent creations on pinterest.
I decided it was time!
I have had this large terracotta pot for years that my parents gave me, but I never really knew what to do with it....a few succulents, potting mix & stones later I had created my first mini succulent garden.
of course everything needs to grow a little
and fill the pot out...
Crassula Gollum 'lady finger'
'hens & chicks'
'sedum green mound'
graptoveria 'fred ives'
(excuse me if I have any of the names wrong, as I'm a beginner)
there are a few others in the pot one of my favourites is the Senecio Rowleyanus 'string of pearl' not pictured here individually but you can see it in the front of the pot, I first had string of pearls when I was a teenager and have always loved it.
Fingers crossed my little succulent garden grows well and I can show you how they have filled out the pot in a few months.
