Last year at a thrift shop, I came across this wrought iron thingy that didn't have a tray. I bought it 'cause I thought it had a cool shape (and it was in the last-chance clearance pile). I finally got around to doing something with it when my cousin gave me some napkin rings that have bees on them. I like to crochet around everything, so I crocheted some "beehives" around the rings, and dangled them from the arch of the wrought iron. The yarn, BTW, also came from the thrift shop. I laid down some remnant tiles (supported by some popsicle sticks) from our kitchen reno. It looked okay, but to add life to it, I stuck some succulent cuttings in the little beehives. To complete the family of rescued items, I added some seed pods from one of my plants.

I'm not very artistic to comment on why this works so well, but I love this little tableau you've made.
