S is for Succulents

Maybe its all the greenery around me but I have been more inspired to grow plants.  I recently visited an adorable shop called Ink & Peat on Williams Ave in NE Portland.  Everything is extremely well curated and the assortment of home products is amazing!  Not only do they have a beautiful floral section but lots of plants and ceramics for the home.

I came home with these two succulents.  I am not sure exactly what they are but they compliment my other plant very well.  Also I don't really have much of a green thumb, succulents seem easy to care for.  I have also invested in a couple air plants--which I learned is best to submerge them for an hour or two once a week to water them.


  1. These are so pretty! I wish I had even the slightest green thumb. I'm such a mess with any kind of plant.

  2. I love succulents, too-- practically impossible to kill + cool-looking = sign me up! I am going to make a terrarium this week but succulents do not fair well in enclosed environs so I have to go plant shopping and I am nervous!
    PS- Love the pots and presentation as well, so "you"!!
