the pocket beastie planter

it’s already 60 degrees outside (and aiming to hit 80 again!), the sun is shining, and i’ve got gardens and parks on the brain. we’ve got some fun garden/floral posts coming up this afternoon, so i wanted to kick things off with something that would echo that same outdoor love. kelly from succulent love (click here to see her adorable home) teamed up with jen e ceramics to create this limited edition “pocket beastie planter” (above) that seems like the perfect way to brighten up a friend’s day. i’m a big fan of living gifts, so something like this is right up my alley: adorable to look at, minimal upkeep, and full of color. kelly and jen’s collaborative project (the collection also includes 2 more designs below) will be available through succulent love’s website starting today. if you’d like to place an order or have more questions you can contact succulent love right here. thanks, kelly!
