Stealing Orchids is Legit!

One great thing about the dead of winter, is the sales you can find on indoor plants.  Yesterday, while visiting Lowe's (again feeding my fixation), I brought home three orchids for only a dollar each.  THREE!! I couldn't pass it up!  That's a whooping $3.00 or you could just think of it as a very cheap center piece.  It doesn't get any better than that, unless you find some for a quarter each (doubtful).

 Don't skimp on indoor plants.  They can really bring any ol' drab room to life!  One of my favorite design bloggers, Emily Henderson (yeah you remember her... she's only the most awesome Design Star winner, EVER), gives tips on styling here.  I plan on taking Emily's advise and re-potting these into something a little bit more interesting, but for now they are definitely helping out my otherwise naked kitchen table.

Here are some interesting ways to decorate with orchids....

I'm considering adding my collection of orchids to the mantle.  Pretty predictable, I know, but it is a no brainer.

 Now that my terrariums have made their way to the window seal, the fireplace needs some jazzing up. I'll let you know how it turns out, but first I need to find an interesting pot!


  1. There was once a time when I'd drive 40 minutes after midnight to the 24 hour Home Depot in downtown Atlanta just to buy pots and green thing to put in them.
    Right now all we have inside is our medicinal aloe plant and a sprig of basil wintering in the kitchen. (seedlings waiting on garden transplant don't count)
    Now I'm itching to bring the outside in. Thanks for that.

    1. Sounds to me that you are ahead of the game, Jill! If only I had my seedlings started! That SO counts in my book!!
