Here's something you don't know about me...at one time, long, long ago, I had over 100 houseplants that I was happily nurturing. Most of them were cacti, succulents or bromeliads, so it wasn't super labor intensive, but it still took up a lot of time. Eventually I developed other interests--like quilting! One by one, all of my plants fell by the wayside until I had not even one plant left to water.
|That doesn't mean I don't like having some greenery around though! I love the look of the olive branches you see in so many Farmhouse style decor photos, so I was drawn to these olive trees from Commercial Silk--very life like with the silvery leaf backs and woody twigs. |
|My first intent was to have them on the mantle (I've been looking for some greenery to put there forever!), but I think they get a bit lost against the brickwork.|
(I confess, the clock hasn't been hung back up since day light saving time started--my bad!)
|So... I moved them to the dining room sideboard. Much better! |
|The olive trees were provided to me by Commercial Silk in exchange for a review. |
Very pretty and they don't take away any time from quilting. PerfectReplyDelete
And I thought I had a lot of houseplants! Over 100--Wow!!ReplyDelete
These look really good.
that is a lovely silk plant!ReplyDelete
Pretty little greenery. The red of the apples really make them stand out.ReplyDelete
I got interrupted so I didn't get to finish. I just wanted to say that I like the idea of putting artificial greenery around to compliment the indoors. I like low maintenance ideas.Delete
One hundred is ALOT! But okay, lately my green thumb has returned! I bought a spider plant a few years ago and since I now refer to it as "grandmother" as I have a huge "daughter plant" who I've now made three more plants from! Luckily my mom takes the babies to Arizona with her...only to return them the next when they get too big for her. LOL YOurs are a much better idea! (PS I think they'd look good on the mantle in the winter)ReplyDelete
