31 Days of Cheap & Free Decor: Day 12-Going Green

Not THAT green! (Though you're very welcome to go that green too, but that's not what this blog is about!)

THAT kind of green!

You've probably already heard this, but seriously, get some plants in your place! They fill up blank spaces, they add a natural touch to a sterile room, they purify the air... there's no good reason not to add some plants.

Look what they did for my dining room,


It's not much- but it helps liven up the space. And guess what- those are just clippings I got off neighbours and stuck in some dirt to try to root for next summer! Oh, and some spring onions- which I always keep in water- they last almost indefinitely that way.

So many plants can be divided easily- succulents, aloes, mother-in-laws tongues, spider plants, lavender.... ask around- someone is bound to have some they can give you!

See the green spiky plant on the desk here?

That baby was in an arrangement a friend gave me two months ago. I stuck it in some water, and its still alive. I've changed the water once. I have no idea what it is, but apparently, it's indestructible!

Go green! And then post your pics below for everyone to see!

  1. I love plants! It's so fun to experiment with different ones and they can be very cheap to find. I've gotten several from clearance racks at greenhouses or home improvement stores. If they don't do well, you can always blame it on the lighting in your home! Yours look great, Kate!
