[...does anybody have a clue what these two are at all? A friend brought me them from a boot fair and I would love to put a name to the leaves. Thank you for looking and I hope you have a lovely day!]

Looks like a sedum rubrotinctum, or jelly bean sedum..all leaves green looking must have been growing in shade for awhile Smiling

[...Thank you ever so much, I had no idea what it was. It's been on the windowsill in the kitchen getting bigger, but I'm going to pop it outside and see if it reds up.]

My first thought is Crassula of some sort but I don't know much about succulents.

Looks like Echeveria just bought - Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg'

May not be the same one but look at the different posting in the Echeveria group.... They all seem to have that blue grey leaf with a pinkish tinge.

The Echeverias Database

Think you may find a similar one in the group.
