I haven’t been outside as much because of all the smoke from the fires. So I took some pictures of my indoor plants. This is one of my newer additions.
We thankfully got some rain today. I hope and pray that those affected by the fires can find some relief soon. Twenty-twenty has surely been a shit-storm. I’m really looking forward to some holiday cheer. Yes, I’m one of those people. Ha!

I finally purchased a dish from Goodwill today and put together my first succulent mini garden. I used the bridge and cottage door that I purchased from the Brothers Greenhouses in Port Orchard, WA. The garden looks a little sparse so I may add a few more plants to it later. Please wish me luck that they all survive. I do not have a green thumb like my mother. My husband usually takes care of our houseplants. I seem to let them die by not watering them enough or by watering them too much.
I figured since the succulents seem to be thriving in the outdoor containers that our neighbor put together for us, I might as well peruse them elsewhere. This arrangement will sit in our front window.
Here is what I used for the layers from bottom to the top.
Pebbles for drainage
Activated charcoal (purchased from the pet store)
Here are a few links to a couple of blogs that I found useful.
Today we had an amazing trip to a local nursery and its very creative hobbit house. The Brothers Greenhouses in Port Orchard, Washington is full of beautiful, lush, healthy plants. The hobbit house itself is covered in succulents and flowers. It is such an adorable piece of art. It has a fully functional round hobbit sized door, a fireplace and cute round windows.
The kids loved the house. It could definitely be a child’s dream playhouse. It was just the right size for our little hobbits.
I’m in the process of researching how to create and care for a terrarium. The nursery’s owners/staff were very friendly and super helpful. I found a few new succulents, moss, and rocks to add to my creation. I was very inspired by their adorable miniature gardens.
Along side the beautiful plants, the nursery also sold a plethora or fairy and miniature garden items. It was truly hard not to walk away with purchasing more than what I needed for my first terrarium. We will most certainly be back!
