Green Thumb

Last year I went to an overpriced boutique downtown and I saw cute little succulents in tin cans.  I happen to know you can get tin cans for free after most meals, and you can snag a succulent at the store for 2-3 dollars...about 18 dollars less than the boutique price.
I poked some holes in the bottom of the can, sprayed it brown and took a paper cloth and some gold paint and sponged it on.  I planted the succulent, and I put a few feathers at the bottom.  The good news is that succulents sort of thrive when you ignore them...and I'm really, really, really good at ignoring plants at my house.  It's a win for everyone.
