Hey Neighbor!

succulent garden

A little deviation from Brooch Bouquets today, but so worth it!  My amazingly talented neighbors designed and constructed this succulent garden as a wedding gift… are you kidding me? Jim & Mary are not only my lovely neighbors but they are true treasure hunters! Always on the look out for a great deal or better yet the abandoned treasure left on the side of the road! They are such a great team… Mary comes up with the idea and Mr. Talent (Jim) figures out a way to make it happen, then Mary adds the final details…  this is a perfect example of their crafty work… in need of a wedding gift, they came up with the idea to make a succulent garden. Constructed from a piece of redwood the heart was created, planted with succulents (cuttings from her own garden) “we need a box”  left over wood was brilliantly turned into not only a box to carry the gift, but designed to be an herb garden… little bags of seeds with stamped spoons as markers, The wedding gift is complete! Oh did I mention the old leather belt Jim cut apart to make the boxes handles? They really are too much! Congrats to the lucky couple!
