The other day I was at Ikea and as I strolled through the plant section I spotted their collection of orchids. Boy, were they beautiful! And only $12. So I picked one up (in pink!) and I also picked up a matte gray ceramic holder.
I put some water in the vase per their directions, plopped it down on my kitchen table, and I can't tell you how much happiness it's brought me! I'm surprised that it's done so well, and dare I say has flourished! (I also love that the simple pot matches my wall color)
It's true when they say "it's the little things..."
If you want an orchid in your life, I highly recommend IKEA!
Also speaking of IKEA, I don't think I mentioned it yet but the sofa has been purchased and is in my office! It's not the most comfortable sofa in the world, but that is actually a blessing (it helps me stay at my desk during the day.) And I had to laugh when Matt said he thought it was SO comfortable.. he likes a firm sofa..?
I couldn't help but snap this picture yesterday...
I love having my animal "assistants" help me during the day.
Also! A friend of mine is selling me her Canon Rebel since she has recently upgraded. Yay!! Once I get it from her the first thing I will capture is my updated office. It's coming with the regular lens, I'm going to wait to get a wide angle later. Thank you all so much for your help with the camera questions! It was invaluable.
