Mother's Day Display

My teacup gardens are displayed on this sweet, two step white washed ladder; Suzette bought from "Girls Gone Junkin'", when they were at The P, one day. You can catch them at Canton.  I stapled a "grow" light fashioned from a bed spring and small light, similar to the ones that go in a Christmas village, to the underneath (top).  Really makes it SHINE OUT, lol.

Each little teacup has a tiny tea stained sign saying...
Tea Cup Garden...and the name of the particular flower or plant...

                                William and I drilled a little hole in the bottom of each cup for drainage...

Also, a larger sign advertises, "Tea Cup Gardens ~ Great for Mother's Day!"

Later on I'll change the sign to, 
"Tea Cup Gardens ~ for the "little" gardener in us all..."

me on Mother's Day with my Five kids...1993
Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Love the Tea Cup Gardens! Such a cute idea.. the ladder and all.
The pictures of you and your kiddos is fantastic-- sad, I was just thinking, I don't have a picture of me and my four kiddos. Just me and them... hmmm...should snap one soon, maybe mother's day.
Sweet picture of your Momma and Jacob--

Love your "teacup gardens"! I put some English Ivy in teacups for a royal wedding watch party favor. I just used odd tea cups w/o saucers but the hole for drainage is a excellent idea! Hum.....I may have to make some more.....
