Down Home Blog Hop~Number 16 & A Living Christmas Tree


Good Morning!  It's hard to believe that we are in week sixteen of the blog hop.  It is even more difficult to believe that Christmas is one week away.  I still have a bit of  gift shopping to do and of course grocery shopping. We always host Christmas at our house.  This week I wanted to share with you a living Christmas tree that I created this week for HGTV Garden.



I took a trip over to the garden center and found some succulents on the clearance table.  With a few small pots of hens and chicks, a walk in the woods to gather moss and by recycling a flower pot- I was able to create a lovely living tree for indoors and out.  Overtime the succulents will fill in all the vacant spaces.  Click here to create one of these sweet trees for your home.

A "hen" is ready to plant.
