Jade plant propagation is a great thing to do when it’s still February and warm weather is at least two months away. Anyway, what’s a girl to do when she thought spring was in the air and then reality hit?
Well, she goes inside to play with her plants and to continue dreaming … because you see, on Tuesday, I was outside at my potting bench listening to water pour off the roof, digging into some dirt.
Today, I’m in my pantry at my Hoosier (which is just as inspiring as my bench). Yesterday I emptied the whole thing and changed the direction it was facing, hoping to catch the north light a bit better. I think it helped, but I think it still leaves something to be desired. However you never know until you try something do you?

This is the direction I used to have the Hoosier. The side light does look fabulous, but the photo was taken in June when it was much brighter outside. I’ll post a photo of the way I have it now as soon as the light is a bit better.
Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope to see you tomorrow at Friday Finds!
Hi Barb, Oh how I love your Hoosier cabinet! I can relate to the search for light and making do. I was taking photos yesterday in what is now our guest room (used to be my oldest son’s room). I moved the curtains up and around, out of the way. I stood on the low IKEA bookshelf and used a table from our screened in deck as a surface background. My husband walked by the room and just shook his head and laughed. I put him to work holding a piece of white foam board to add a little light! All this to say, I love your images -those beautiful pots and the little clippers – so much love!
You love to garden . . . have you ever made a terrarium, Barb. They are my latest love – so gorgeous and easy to maintain. I used this book as a guide – http://www.amazon.com/The-New-Terrarium-Creating-Beautiful/dp/0307407314
i need you to come to texas and start me a whole batch of succulents. :)
Beautiful jade plants! And what a great cupboard. Can’t wait to see what comes of it when you have better light.

Lovely photos of your jade plant. I hope that all your cuttings take root and flourish. Over here in the UK we call that type of plant a money tree, and it’s believed to bring it’s owner financial prosperity. I hope yours brings you oodles of good fortune. All the best for a lovely weekend, Bonny

Your jade plant is beautiful, so photogenic. You can cut a stem off and they root in soil? You are going to have a lot of beautiful photo props. :) I love your scissors and the pots too. Great images!
Super photos Barb, and you’re tempting me into going to buy some succulents…!
I love Jade in plant and jewelry., I have done this easy pezzy I think. Lovely post again.
