First Person Maker: Vintage Succulent Planters

Welcome to my backyard that is very much “in process!” Today I’m creating indoor succulent gardens in my newest obsession: vintage planters that I have been searching for in thrift stores and online. My obsession with these unique, yet affordable, mid-century planters has been brewing for a while. Join me as I share a bit about how I identify them and how I use them.

My planting methods aren’t very scientific but they’ve never failed me. Plus, the birds were singing like crazy and it was a beautiful afternoon for a potting session.
