I will confess that I mainly got those ideas from photos of said neat things/places on blogs, yet I was completely captivated and very much wished for some green.
So after much research, Arwen and I (after all we do share a room) got one. And is it ever cute! A little Snake Plant, with wide dark green leaves with just the slightest of creamy yellow stripes. It’s current place is on a little desk in the closet beside the Colorado coffee cup and in front of the poster board filled with photos and postcards of bears and moose and Yellowstone and other western things. And oh, does it fit in to perfection!
We also convinced Heidi to get a Golden Pathos, but since she does not yet have an approved home for it up off the floor, it resides for most of the day on the desk beside my laptop. Hence it also is surrounded by photos and woodsy paintings with the addition of photos of Clarkson, Elise and Rufus—which is also truly happy perfection.
Just walking into the room and seeing their greenness makes me so ridiculously happy! And when I sit writing beside them, I feel so hip-city and creative, I nigh half to pinch myself.
The point? Dreams do come true and even the littlest of dreams can be the gateways to ridiculous amounts of joy, ‘cuz after all God loves to work in little things.
(Oh, and if my hinting has not been clear enough… get a houseplant. It will do you good. :))
