Welcome, come into my Garden room:-)

Friday, March 22, 2013

A couple weeks ago I walked into a side garden at a florist shop. It began with lovely bright flowers and the further in you went the more shaded and magical it became. I bought a lime green philodendron. I decided I had to make a magical place like that somewhere in my home! So in short order I moved the hutch out, a dresser in, glass shelves came from across the hall and a cool wood tool chest came in from the garage. Now none of the plants are really old a few are new, most are a couple years old and several had previous owners:-)
For some reason Sunny is so good when I have his cage next to the" wall of tropical plants". Maybe he thinks its the rainforest!
without his cage in the way!

my father in laws wood workers tool box, I saw it in the garage and thought it needed to come into the house, how cool antd rustic:-) the lamp has an example of my favorite new craft-wrapping yarn around anything! The lamp shade was gross and dingy. I wrapped yarn wreathes at Christmas so why not try it on this? Well I love it and you can change the colors when ever you want for pennies!
my favorite piece of furniture, a shabby chic old dresser. Swedish ivy on top a cute bunny doll and the little sequin dolls I made in the 1970's:-) the pictures are me and my brother as toddlers, Grandma had them made and Mom just handed them down to me:-)
you can see more yarn wrapped flower pots and little cone trees I used at Christmas time.
So this is the first day it's finished and a work in progress. If you have tips on house plants please tell me! The Boston ferns are new, the Swedish ivy is new and pieces of it break off whenever I move it. It was fairly root bound in it's hanging basket and has a few yellow leaves but was quite dry until I potted it last week.

    Might want to try Walmart for some palm trees---usually really good prices there---would be good in a corner in there. Watch the ivy---yellow leaves sometimes are a sign of overwatering, too. Ask the Expert section on here would be a good place to ask about the houseplants---esp. if you know the names of them. You could buy a book or even go to the library and check one out to help you identify more of them. The room looks really lovely---and I love your yarn wrapping, esp. the lamp shade.
