a visit with Camille and her Petite Pots


I spent the morning with my friend Camille, exploring her garden and visiting her little workshop where she creates her fabulous Petite Pots. 


Camille's yard is filled with all kinds of fun and interesting plants and artwork. She puts together collections of succulents and drought tolerant plants to make interesting arrangements in "Petite Pots".    


Most of her pots are small to medium sized, but Camille can also work magic in large planters, hanging baskets or even in your yard. When I was visiting, I spied her latest project, a 36" wide hanging basket filled with dozens and dozens of succulents. She has some great ideas for gifts, too.

Here are some of my favorite Petite Pots: 











Cheers!

The plants are gorgeous. I would love to have them around in my house. Do these plants survive without sunlight for 2-3 months. I am in MI and was wondering if I can have some of these plants indoors during the winters.

Thanks for linking on Tea Time Thursdays. This post has been featured on Kreative Korner.

The party for this week - Tea Time Thursdays @ Kreative Korner - is on. Hope to see you there with latest posts.
