This is so much fun.....check it out!  Our good friend Joy from Savvy City Farmer stopped by today for a visit and did a live "scope" on Periscope.  What fun.  You can follow Joy on Periscope and soon, Tattered Tiques too.

We are so excited....and very thankful for being featured in The Daily Herald. A huge "Thank You" to Anna Marie Kukec for such a great article. She compares us to The American Pickers...kinda funny! Check it out!

Recycling with Succulants

recently was "sucked" in by the beauty of Succulents. I thought it only proper to recycle vintage items to use as new homes for these beauties. 
I snapped this pic at a The Home Depot. 
I picked up special potting mix for cacti and succulants, along with river rocks for drainage. I grabbed some cute, vintage containers from the shop today, along with some succulents from The Home Depot.
With Margaret's help, we added rocks on the bottom, then soil, and the plants.
 Seriously.....how easy is this?!
Quick, easy, and so adorable!

I'm hooked on succulants now! Soon I'll be making more terriaumns for the shop too. Stay tuned.....and stay warm! Brrrrr it's cold here in Chicago!  Julie
