Let's STAY IN TOUCH

A friend once called me a
crafty ass bitch and I loved it. I design, make, fix, style, cut, build, hammer, sew, solder, mix, weave, paint, photograph, edit, measure, pour, cook, plan, organize, repurpose & more.

My ultimate superpower is freakish amounts of patience. It's allowed me to endlessly tinker with design, DIY, photography and the gold old internet (which I'm so grateful has connected us!) as well as create my own planning and productivity systems. 

My mission is to activate your #SisooSpirit so you can create the life you most desire. Stick with me, I've got some awesome things to share!

They are the ideal investment for those who have a history of killing plants as they require minimum maintenance. I learned from a florist that a succulent will stay alive up for up to 6 months out of a pot with no root system as long as it receives mists of water (infrequently) on its leaves. And how cute are vintage tea tins??

succulents-tea-tins-3bsucculents-tea-tins-5bsucculents-tea-tins-7bsucculents-tea-tins-2succulents-tea-tins-10bI found these sweet vintage tea tins, and thought they’d make a great home for my newly purchased succulents.

UPDATE! You can now purchase a set of 4 tins or a set of 5 tins!

They do not have a drainage hole on the bottom, I plan to mist them with a little water from a spray bottle every few weeks as per my florist’s instructions. They also would be a perfect nest for an air plant (no soil required!). If you wanted to try this with herbs (that would require more watering), you could poke a hole in the bottom of the tea tins to let them drain.

Happy planting!
