Amica now lives with a cat, Mister Cat, and Jen shared this photo with me so you could enjoy it too!

Jaxx visited too, but he’s not in the picture.

Mixed Succulents in a Barrel

The Rare Barrel brews beers, especially sour beers, which seems to be the latest craze. But here we see they put some succulents in a barrel instead. Delicious!

That’s a very nice paper cactus, by Jordan Shone whose website refers to her as:

I am a paper engineer / set designer currently living in the South West. My work brings together my obsessions with collecting, detail and colour in the realms of 3D.

Who designed them? Allison Cole.

Where can you get them? Cactus Jungle.

They’re right up the street from us!!! And they came and visited and took pictures and blogged and everything.

So how did we find out about their product? Did we walk right up the street and take a look? No! We went to a trade show in New York and found them there. And then back home here.

What do you think of their stuff?

Found this random photo of a garden planted in a re-up-cycled meter box. I wonder how many of these are now available since the advent of the smart meter?

The original artist is Andrew Manocheo from Chicago and the piece was featured in Sprout Home in case you don’t want to re-up-cycle one yourself.
