MY Chalkpaint projects and " the earthquake" in the East Coast

I replanted a few of my favorite plants into old silver plate containers.



I potted a few into my blue Atlas jars.

An old pitcher, and a sugar bowl from the "Good Will" store

It looks pretty inside the silver plate tray
I didn't get to complete the antique door due to the "earthquake"
in the East Coast.  Everyone was afraid in Boston, everyone is fine, just a bit afraid due to the fact that they are rare around here.
I was near the ocean, but the cell phones didn't work for a while, but we didn't feel anything. I hope that all my readers and followers from Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and Canada are fine. We just never know when something like this is coming, this one was a real surprise around the entire East Coast.I pray that you are all okay. 


Back to the "magic paint"

I found this on an Architectural Digest magazine, the blue is very similar to my door. I thought it is very nice against the black and white .


After the "earthquake" news, we all stocked up with water and supplies in case things happened again.  I did a little decorating, just to re-group, I call it "decor therapy" , I got this idea a while back, I can't remember if it was a magazine or a blog or somewhere, here is my version.

Sorry about the upside down post, blame it on the horrible "earthquake" affecting our area.  It did make us a bit nervous, a lot of people didn't think it was an earthquake, if you are on the 15th. floor or on a train getting home, you don't know what is going on, unfortunately in this time we all think its the worst. My family is okay, but I hope we have a little warning next time. I heard about it from someone who was standing next to me in line, they were on their iphone. We all headed home and fast.

Blessings to all of you,

martha

lovely post. I have a quick question. Did you have to drill holes in your containers before you planted the succulents? I want to plant some in my milk glass vases but read online that you have to have drainage or they will die. What has been your experience with succulents? THANKS!
