This first is a couple of buds with attached stem and leaves we brought inside hoping they open up. The weather took a nose dive in temperature falling to the low 30s. I feared the cold snap might hurt the buds on the bush and I really wanted to see them open up. We'll see if anything happens with these two cuttings.
This next is of a favorite shelf sitter or nic nac. I forget what this is actually called but has a tea candle at the base you light and the flame heats up a hanging ceramic dish that holds a fragrance tart.
Another little mishap I had to improvise in was the saucer that should be under the cup along with a spoon. Rather than trying to work those in, I left them off.
And why am I telling on myself??? It's all a learning experience and maybe my sharing things like this might help someone else when faced with similar occurrences. :-)
