Pretty on a Penny!

After visiting a friend's house & seeing the plants in their house, Z and I decided we'd really like to get our own plants to add some color & life to our place. I'm not at all a fan of fake bushes, trees, or plants of most any kind, so we definitely wanted to go the real route.

And, I just happened to stumble upon the perfect things last weekend.

Stop #1- Target. (of course) Picked up two mini metal pails to pot plants. $2 (gotta love the dollar bins!)

Stop #2- Kroger. (grocery shopping) A deal caught my eye while walking by the flower area- 3 small plants for $5. Perfect. Grabbed 3.

Stop #3- Our storage closet. (a.k.a. my stash of loot!) Remembered I'd picked up a cute little pot at the Dollar Tree a while back.

Total cost: $8

Put them all together, and voila!
I have three new friends!! And I'm vowing to overcome my plant-killer tendencies so these babies survive!! Doesn't he look right at home here?
Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!!
