Flowers on Friday: Orchid

I LOVE orchids and in recent years they have become so much cheaper. You may remember our last orchid for the previous Manor. It seemed to make it's way into every photo of the living room. He was only $19.99 and lasted us almost 6 months in bloom. Sadly when we moved he was . . . murdered (we left him in the garage with the other house plants, completely by accident).
So after a period of mourning we've moved on. Our new orchid moved it's way not only into our hearts but also into the same green container. And best part was he only cost us $12.99 (that's cheaper then most grocery store bouquets). We've decided he'll live in the Library. An orchid just seems like a snooty plant and so the library seemed like the perfect spot for him. hehe

  3. I have been wanting to try orchids for a long time, just never got around to it. They are beautiful. I loved your post yesterday about your pantry and haven't been able to get it out of my mind. I think I will try and organize mine a little better this weekend. I was wondering where you got the plastic containers you used for your flours and loose tea? My husband and I are going shopping tomorrow, so thought I would try and find them. Thanks so much.

  5. Come to think of it, "he" does look a bit like a "she" :)

    Debby,
    The clear containers in the pantry are from Ikea! They're great, they are BPA free and super handy!!!
    Hope that Helps
