Howdy! I hope y’all are doing well. I have been in a little bit of funk with crocheting for the past month or so, but I have been busy with a couple of fun projects that I wanted to share. If you are subscribing to my blog for crocheting, I apologize in advance. I plan on posting a few more NCR projects in the next couple of weeks.
My husband and I built a house in the country last year and we are finally landscaping our backyard. I really wanted to put prickly pear somewhere because it really feels Texas to this Japanese girl and it also produces beautiful maroon/purple dye for yarn dyeing! I still have not figured out where I can put them but in the meantime I have been in love with little succulents! A cute container from Cowgirl Utopia popped up on my FB feed and I just had to get it. I bought it unstained and stained it with the same stain that is used on our house. (I accidentally used the interior stain so I put a layer of sealant later.)
I bought succulents from local farmer’s market and viola! I have a beautiful succulent planter!
Aren’t they just the cutest??
And guess what? Cowgirl Utopia makes them in the shape of ANY state!
I have no affiliation with them but their products just tickle my heart. I admit I also bought these hex planters that I have yet to play with.
Well, that’s it for now from a VERY hot Texas! (I think it is 95 degrees right now) Stay cool!
