Guest post: Barb from second chance to dream

Hi guys, I am on my way to my long awaited Disney cruise.  I love spending time with my family!!  I’ve had such AMAZING women volunteer to guest on the blog while I’m away.  Todays guest is no exception!!


Hi! I’m Barb Camp from Second Chance to Dream. I want to say Thank You to Connie for having me here today. A little about me, I’m a wife of 34 years, a mom to 6 kids ages 33-13, 3 married and 3 still at home. I have 3 grandchildren.  I’m a life coach who wants to encourage women to live their dreams and passions and help them to grow creatively as well as spiritually. Stop on over and check out my blog.

The project I want to share today is a Mother’s Day gift idea.  I thought and thought of what I could do for my mother for Mother’s Day.  I scoured my brain for things she loves and came up with two things that would work together.  She loves to garden and she loves tea cups and saucers.  She has a huge collection of tea cups and saucers, but she doesn’t have a teacup with a plant in it.  I decided to put two of her favorite things together and make this:

Here’s what you do:  Find a teacup and saucer.

Use something to glue the cup to the saucer.  I used Liquid Nails.

Put a few small stones in the bottom for drainage.

Add top soil.

Add your succulents. Succulents are great because they don’t require a lot of watering or a lot of upkeep.

A simple inexpensive gift.  If your mother isn’t interested in tea cups you could use old decorative tins or small baskets.  Use your imagination!  Just make sure you add small stones for drainage.

If you enjoyed this tutorial why don’t you come on over to Second Chance to Dream to say Hi! Or can subscribe via Facebook, RSS Feed or Email.

Thanks again Connie for having me here.
