Simple Summer Art

I've always loved the look of succulents.  They are so pretty, unusual and amazingly resilient.  Some more than others, but I've been able to manage keeping a few alive so far this summer and that's a pretty big accomplishment for a black thumb like me.  I always swing through the garden section while I'm making my weekly rounds at Lowe's or Home Depot to check and see if they have any discounted plants.  While I was there, I snapped a few pictures of some of the succulents they had.  They were just so pretty.  I didn't have my "real" camera, so I just used my phone.  Then, I printed one out at a local photo lab and popped it in a thrifted frame.  Easy artwork that cost me next to nothing!

I don't really have much of a blue and white ceramic collection, but I'm slowly gathering them as I see them at thrift stores.  I couldn't resist this one when I saw it for $3.99 a few weeks ago!

I have some plans for this little corner fireplace wall to breathe a little life into it and make it feel less dark and shadowy.  So wish me luck!
