April Finds

I recently went to my sister’s open studio in Elliot, Maine and along with her beautiful handmade ceramics she had other vendors selling goods like this watercolor print.

I fell in love with this print when I saw it on her instagram post about the event. So I had to get one. I still need to find the right frame for it. I was thinking a thin wood frame.

This print is by the artist Leah Bares from Violette Tide Studios

I also recently found this cute coolor tote at Target on clearance for $2.98. I love having these for baseball games, trips to the park or when I take the kids on a long drive.

I also picked up these mini pictures for my gallery wall in the kitchen/sitting area. I have been collecting small art to cover the wall around the tv.

These cute mini wall hangings were only a $1.80 at Target. They are magnetic and also can hold some faux flowers or maybe pencils.

My sister gifted this hanging planter to me. You can visit Elizabeth Benotti Ceramics to see all her handmade ceramics.

My House Plants

 
Peace Lily

Peace Lily

Could you believe I never had any house plants until a few years ago I started collecting succulents.

Then I found a pothos hanging plant at my local grocery store in the clearance area. He needed love and was only $4.

After that I decided I had to have more.

pothos-1

I Recently picked up some new plants that can handle low light. We have a lot of trees and we do not get a lot of direct sunlight.

I did research on which plants are good for low light and the Home Depot has a lot to pick from. Not my first choice to buy plants but we were there for a kid workshop and I saw the plants for $3.98.

pearlpothos-jade

This one is the pearl jade pothos. I picked up two of these. I like the color on this one. It has grown already from getting it about a week ago.

Pothos do well in indirect light and low light. Also letting the soil dry out before watering. I overwatered my $4 grocery store one at first and realized that when the leaves were turning yellow.

pothos-2

Here is when Harper and I put them into pots and a week later.

peace lily-2

I love the dark leaves on this peace lily. They thrive in low light but should not be near cold, drafty areas like windows. I found this website that explains about caring for these here. They are toxic for pets so if you have cats you should not get one of these and keep away from dogs.

Nasa ranked these in the top ten of air cleaning plants.

crispy wave

I thought this plant was pretty interesting, it is called the crispy wave. It is also great for detoxifying the air. It came with the pot and was $8. I have it in Harper and Weston’s room. Likes indirect light and soil to be moist.

suc-3

This succulent is also new and I keep my succulents in the kitchen because we get a lot of sunlight in here.

kitchen-window

And last these are the plants I’ve had for a while now and they are still alive except for the rosemary. I can never keep them alive.

I want to get some snake plants next. I’m having a hard time finding them and they are very god for cleaning the air in the house and says to take care of. I also would love some larger plants but not sure what I can do with our low light.

I plan to try making eggshell tea for natural fertilizer for my plants. Has anyone tried this?
