More From Last Weekend and a Recycled Winning

Last weekend when I went to Molly Wood Nursery I picked up this little beauty.  I had never seen one of these before.  It's called a Hindu Rope or Hoya or Angel Rope or . . .

Do any of you have one of these beauties?  Can you tell me more about it?  I was told that it is not a succulent and that it's a "house plant" and shouldn't be placed outdoors.  I haven't repotted it yet because I'm still looking for a tall pot to put it in so the leaves can trail.


And when I was at the Jamestown Flea Market I picked up another vintage suitcase to add to my collection.  Another place for me to stash some of my supplies :)


Then today in the mail I received this REALLY cool Capri Sun tote from Tonya May that I won over on her blog recently . . .


This is just too cool!  You have to click on the photos to get a closer look at the construction of this tote.  And LOOK, Tonya even added three pockets inside . . .


There's even a separate zippered bag to put my change in . . .


What a conversation piece THIS will be on my next outing *smiles*.  Thank you so much Tonya!

No plans outside the home for me this holiday weekend.  Need to catch up on some "Spring" cleaning and get the kits together for my workshop at Linda's home next Saturday for what is now a "full house"!  Thank you ladies :)

I don't have a clue about the plant.....they just die at my house but I do like them, they just don't like me.
