Guess what? Mother's Day almost caught me by surprise this year. Ack! Panic mode... What to do? So, to get inspiration, I went to my local Goodwill Store. I found this box of vintage "china" cups and saucers.
It was marked $5.99 for the whole box, but lucky for me, red tags were one of the two colors on the 50% off weekly sale. So, the whole box was $3, plus tax.
Then, I went off to my local garden supply center... Yes, a mom and pop place!
It's called Bob's Garden Center. They close at 9 PM on Saturday nights, and I got there at 8:45.
I scored three "Hens and Chicks" for $4.99 each, plus tax. They're great succulents!
This is the "quickie" part. You pick a cup and saucer, and pick a plant. Depot it GENTLY, and remove enough soil over a paper bag or newspaper, etc... to keep the mess to a minimum.
Place the succulent in the cup, and clean it up! Easy peasy! It was quick, affordable, environmentally friendly (by upcycling), and supported local businesses! Major pat on the back!
