the fun part: thrifting for bowls. most of the dishes i've scavenged are quite shallow -- succulents and air plants are just about the only things i could realistically put in them.
i picked up these guys at an estate sale:
i especially love the mint bowl.
i gathered a few more thrifted bowls from my workspace -- they were accumulated over a couple of months at goodwill, garage sales, etc.
the funner part:
off K and i went to a local nursery!
i brought the dishes with me because i wanted to pick the perfect plant for each container...
each plant ranged from $3 to $9 -- not expensive at all! at least, compared to a full-grown fiddle leaf fig tree.
...and i picked up some more cactus potting soil while i was at it.
i immediately started repotting when we got home.
now...the funnest part!
where to place them around the house?
i used this wooden bowl for an air plant. curious how to pot air plants? i just threw in some rocks, then plopped the plant in. easy-peasy!
he sits on the impromptu bookshelf in our stairwell.
i set a few of the new plants by our large picture window, on a thrifted brass rolly-cart next to our baby fiddle leaf fig (grow, figgy, grow!!)...
our dinky oak tree isn't doing too shabby! :)
i'm digging this green-bean-y guy:
next to the green bean succulent, i potted these three amigos together in the wide and shallow wooden bowl:
there are also a couple of plants on our craiglisted credenza in the front room:
