Neon + Succulents
The kiddos, hubby, and I were up to some more garden goodness this weekend. We hit nursery #2 for thyme, dill, and some wonderful fragrant honeysuckle.
I also found seventy-two (72!!) different varieties of succulents, and I've been dying to have some of these beauties in our home. Each species was more intricate and amazing than the next. I forced myself to decide upon just two, and these little hen and chicks found their way home with us.
Add to this two neon bottles of paint that I just had the urge to pick up last time I was at Michael's and here we are with some terracotta neon goodness. The kids and I had fun painting shapes of neon to our pots.
BUT, neon combined with the natural, I find that kind of intriguing. A happy juxtaposition.
These smiling circles are made with stampers and pencil eraser tops. Terracotta just drinks up the paint so I did apply a second coat to make sure that the neon remained bright. Here you see the dampness of the soil has already added a level of saturation to the colors.
And best part of these beauties? They are basically indestructible. Perfect.
Have you been adding any neon to your life? Or featured some everlasting succulents in a special spot? Say more, please.
Thanks for stopping over! I have another crafty project I'm super excited to share with you tomorrow. I hope you'll join me again...it's always lovely to have you here. Thank you.
