A centre piece and lets warm up the indoors for winter ... :)

... its winter, .... that time of the year when plants actually are alright coming indoors at my place ... and I have been feeling sad about my coffee table looking dull and boring ... :) And yep! had a lil' experiment thingy somewhere in the back of my head ... ;)

 ... so , what do you get if you have a certain experiment itch  ... an ol' ceramic pot ( yep, see no bottom tray to hold water) ... and some new succulents you spied at the nursery ... :))))))))))

 ... looking at them all tiny lil' ones ... its not so exciting  ... no filled up looking pots ... aaaah! ... what do you do .... :) ...


... o.ky so I sweet talked my daughter into sharing her collecion of shiny stones from our recent road trip across India ... and guess what I even got a few tiny shells put in for free ... hey! these kids can be generous to mums, at times ... ;)



 ... yes , it was a concern how to save the polish of my coffee table .... well ! I just placed  this slate tile, I had lying around ... and yep! it will need to be taken out to be watered and kept there till it completely drains ... but thats cool with me ...



... ah! did get into trouble with the lil' brat falling in love with how mum, lil' project looked awesome all because she helped in with her shells and stones ... so that was not going to be it ... ''mama, now that you are so happy with that look ... I'll be real nice and go decorate the entire garden with my collections " ... NOoooooooooooooo ............. help me ... some body , ... that was not what I had bargained for ...

Love the planter arrangement!!! And, absolutely love the jar filled with shells! I have a box filled with gorgeous corals and shells I picked up in Lombok, that has been just lying around for 7yrs.

Initially I had thought I will get a table made with a hollow centre so I incorporate the shells and some sand in it, but never got around to it! Will try to put them in a jar like this one! It looks so pretty!!!
