While looking through the Pottery Barn online catalog for ideas to create this week's challenge, I found this darling rock/succulent arrangement. It was a simple display of nature's best - rock and greenery.
This is the Pottery Barn arrangement that inspired my challenge piece. There are faux succulents but I also noticed that there is also a faux rock. Wow! I like natural things, so I set out to find a natural rock.
I had to look no further than our front porch. That was where I found this little gem, a prize that we had brought back from Big Sur many years ago. Perfect!
I gathered some faux succulents from the Dollar Tree and placed them strategically on the rock before attaching them using my trusty glue gun.
After experimenting with a variety of arrangements...
I added more succulents, then less because succulents naturally grow close together because when they drop a baby leaf it will often take root next to the parent plant. The rock was perfect and genuine, the succulents while artificial, were still attractive.
My final arrangement is as it should be - a great little representation of what would grow in nature. I hope that you like my little Pottery Barn knock-off. Peace be unto you.
