On a recent trip to At Home (a glorious home goods place, if you’ve never been), Brian and I found an owl planter that was on sale for $4. Brian isn’t too fond of my owl obsession, but I won him over with this one. We decided to plant a succulent or two in. I’d heard of East Austin Succulents and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to check it out. Upon arrival, we quickly picked up 4-5 plants and realized we’d made a mistake in visiting – we were about to spend out life savings on succulents! There were so many cool, unique plants. We loved it. The majority of the plants ranged from $2.50-$7.50, great quality and absolutely affordable.
In the end, we selected 6 plants and went back to At Home for another planter. What do you think?
Update: On another trip to At Home, I found 2 more discounted owl planters. When they’re $5, how can you say no?! So now I need to go BACK to East Austin Succulents for 4 more plants. How terrible.

I’ve been working a lot on my food photography, doing my best to follow the current trends. I wish some of these were brighter… But I was working with the lighting I had. I’m hoping to get a portable surface of some kind, whether it be a small table or piece of reclaimed wood, something I can take outside to photograph on.
I was at my aunt’s for Thanksgiving and she has some beautiful dishes and silverware. The little tiny cups are my great great grandma’s. My aunt also has a wonderful succulent/plant collection.
