Beautiful Succulent Embroidery

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

In the past, I have dabbled in cross-stitch, even finding some really fun/funky pattern sellers on Etsy. I must admit that I can only appreciate the beauty that is embroidery! One Artist that has caught my eye lately is Sarah K. Benning. Take a look at her work, it is beautiful, and of course features succulents! Notcot has a great little post about her too… with even more photos.

My Succulent Obsession Continues…

Friday, April 17, 2015

Yay, we finally made it through the Baltimore winter of 2015… Sometimes it felt like it would never end. For some people that means running to their local nursery to buy plants for their gardens. Well I am getting more into gardening, however my first love will always be succulents, and today is wonderful because I found a new blog that celebrates them! Needles + Leaves is a beautifully designed blog that highlights all things succulent and succulent craft related, plus it actually has a clean simple design. Hooray! Here are some of the beautiful pictures from the blog, enjoy! diy-burlap-bunting-thanksgiving-home-decor-succulent-succulents-needlesandleaves_net
