PLANT LIFE








I went to Home Depot last weekend to pickup a few pieces of plywood to build my bedframe and while trying to search for some hardware, I walked into an aisle of tropical indoor plants for $12.99 so I couldn't resist buying that lush monstera deliciosa aka philodendron. I think I'm gonna head back and pick up more. They're so cheap and full! And they're very easy to take care of. I definitely need to replace one of my succulents that's looking grimmer than death. Poor thing. Luckily, my little air plant fella is still going strong even after not watering it for a couple months. I forget that they get thirsty too.

Anyway, I/m finally gonna build my bedframe this weekend. I have all the building blocks so I can't wait! Wish me lots of luck because it's my first time building anything from scratch. And IKEA furniture does not count. Alright, have a fantastic weekend my vintage vultures!

  4. This has reminded me that one of my intentions for this year was to add more greenery to our flat. The husband is allergic to flowers, so non-flowering succulents are ideal.

    Beautiful greenery. I bet your home feels healthy!

  5. Guess I know where I'll be going this weekend! Greening up my place is one of my 30 before 30 goals and I need stuff that will survive inside without much natural light (our downstairs is a cave). :) Can't wait to see how the bed turns out, good luck!

  8. Just a small word of warning on the monstera...it's toxic to pets if they chew on the leaves. I have one of these beauties at home and though I keep it out of reach of my cat, I still monitor him whenever he's near it.

    That said, good luck on the furniture!

  9. CELIA — I had no idea the montera was such a monster towards pets. Guess it lives up to its name! Thanks for the heads up! I will definitely keep an eye out on Beatrice when she visits.
