Yesterday, I decided to plant some succulents in vintage coffee cups, that I purchased at The Salvation Army for just forty cents each.  There was something about the cups that I thought was cool, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them.  I remembered that Miss Mustard Seed had a blog post last Summer about  putting house plants in some of her vintage dishes, and thought that would be a good use for these coffee cups.

Now, I’m not a “houseplant” person because it’s just one more thing to try and keep alive.  Succulents, however, are next to impossible to kill – seriously, you could not water them for like, a year, and they would still be kicking.  Maybe not a year, but you get the idea.  You can also break a piece off of one and re-plant it somewhere else and it’ll take root and flourish.  On top of all of that, succulents are adorable in my opinion, so I ran to the local florist to grab a few.
