Ever since we got back from our honeymoon, I’ve been in serious nesting mode. We’re saving for a house deposit, so we don’t really want to spend lots of money or buy big pieces of furniture. We’re not ready for kids yet and despite my longing for a pet, that’s not in the cards right now either. So what’s a girl to do? Well, buy plants, name them and talk to them.

I’ve always had a talent for killing plants, but now that I’m all grown up (married even!) I figured it was time to try again.

Air plant

Terrariums and air plants are pretty trendy right now, but when James and I came across a make-your-own kit, we couldn’t resist it. I thought an air plant would be pretty easy to take care of, and so far I’ve been right. The plastic dinosaur has been hanging around our house for a few months after it arrived tucked into some kind of online order. Now he’s got a home.


And here’s Planty, our first real plant. I’m really paranoid about killing him, but so far he seems to be doing alright. So far, I’ve managed to keep him alive for six weeks.

And those are the most recent additions to the family, which are probably not that impressive to most people. I’m excited though and I’m already planning our next purchase. I do love the thought of bringing some more greenery into our home.

I love that terrarium, it’s so cute! I have a glass vase thing that is perfect for a terrarium, I just haven’t bought the plants yet, I have no idea what’s holding me up. Seeing yours is so inspiring, though!

I too have killed a few plants ;-) Sometimes, it’s a question of where they are in the house, not too much water or just enough! Well used fertilizer can make wonders too!
