- but how do you get rid of all those halloween costumes?
how many plants are too many plants? my new house has 7 rooms… if i want to count the hallway and the garage there are MORE rooms. each room gets a plant. sorry. thats just how it is.
i have just looking around 30 plants. i gave away three already.
i have a bamboo i received from Eric when he moved to California to follow love when we were neighbors on lockland. a pencil cactus from my first days as being a single lady swearing off love for ever two years ago. two christmas cactus’ that come from a dear friend from work who has had the original for over 20 years. A bavarian belle and purple violet that come from my grandmother’s plant that was in her care for over 30 years before i even received a clipping. We even lost the strain once because said dear work friend poured coffee with milk in it to water it….(?!?!) and killed it. luckily we had given a friend a clipping and 2 years later she mentioned hers was doing fine and we recovered the family bavarian belle! i have an aloe plant because i can’t keep them alive and it simply means something to me if i can…patience. there’s a plant i don’t know what it is but its in a pottery bowl i paid too much for at the snob shop w/ a gift card from river run after my favorite film season. then i went and bought some huge plants for the new house that won’t fit… but they are cute and i bought and painted planters for them. those will have to go to friends as second thought gifts.
there are clippings of friends philodenrens that have woven their way around my plant stands and i’d have to part with both the plant and the stand.
dang it, there’s a third christmas cactus that has never bloomed but sits in a vintage hazel atlas jar, one that we used for jessica’s wedding candles.
In trying to connect and make new friends Nate gave me clippings of three plants and that was a great summer – some one to talk to about plants. one of those will go.
there are plants in pottery i made…
purge pottery- give friends pottery no way do i need all this pottery and still take the class. sell pottery?
The house on melrose had a huge kitchen and we filled every cabinet with vintage dishes that are my favorite. when i moved to madison ave the kitchen was divided in to… use and “do not un pack” boxes. which is exactly where they have stayed. un touched for two years.
this new house in ardmore is even smaller and i have to purge even more. AND i’m sharing the house with dude. because clearly…swearing off love forever is something my heart is not capable of.
