Here's something you don't know about me...at one time, long, long ago, I had over 100 houseplants that I was happily nurturing. Most of them were cacti, succulents or bromeliads, so it wasn't super labor intensive, but it still took up a lot of time. Eventually I developed other interests--like quilting! One by one, all of my plants fell by the wayside until I had not even one plant left to water.
|That doesn't mean I don't like having some greenery around though! I love the look of the olive branches you see in so many Farmhouse style decor photos, so I was drawn to these olive trees from Commercial Silk--very life like with the silvery leaf backs and woody twigs.|
|My first intent was to have them on the mantle (I've been looking for some greenery to put there forever!), but I think they get a bit lost against the brickwork.|
(I confess, the clock hasn't been hung back up since day light saving time started--my bad!)
|So... I moved them to the dining room sideboard. Much better!|
|You could literally spend hours on the CommercialSilk.com site--and I did! I'm thinking that I may need to order some of the outdoor plants or boxwood hedges because of my deer problems--lol! It would be pretty cool to surround my entire back deck for privacy too.|
And, of course, I'm still thinking about that mantle....
