In with New and Out with Old

The weather temperature has reached 2 degrees this morning.  Our car's engine would not start  so my husband was not able to go to work.  I am glad that my kids are off from school in lieu of the  Martin Luther King's day.
I was able to do some cleaning done early this morning and replaced some of the old throw pillows with the new ones in our living room couches.  Hubby thinks I am obsessed with pillows since I always buy some whenever I see something that I like.  Anyway, I put away some of the old ones that I use during holidays. 
 Our family room's theme is Asian so to tie it with the  living room look, we bought this accent chair.
 Last year's winter affected some of my indoor plants but this year, they seem to be doing  alright.  Some of them are well-established  now that even though the heater is on, the plants doesn't mind.  The big window in our living room  helps the plants to catch some sunlight.
 On another note, I finally succeeded in growing  orchid.  I have been trying for years  but it always end up dying.  Orchids reminds me of my Mom because  she has different varieties of orchids at her home.  I wanted to grow some so I could  look at it every time I miss my Mom who live so far away from me.
I bought the orchid above last summer and I am so happy to see it bloom this winter.  I also found the one below on clearance at Lowe's a couple of weeks ago.  It was wilted already and very dry but I though I could give it a try since it was only $3 so if it dies, not a big loss.  The cashier  even asked me if I have a green thumb, she didn't think this will survive.  I'm happy to say that it is alive and looking very healthy, it just need some watering and of course TLC.
I think my indoor plants have finally adopted to the  temperature, all of them are looking good.  Daughter accidentally dropped this succulent and the pot broke so I used the chipped tea cup for it.
 Another plant that I am obsessing is succulents but so far I have no luck with it.  The only one that seems to do good and like my care is the jade, it never disappoint me.  Everytime, I do some cutting and plant it in a new pot, it continue to grow.
 This zamioculcas plant was also on clearance at Lowe’s. It’s normally more than ten bucks so I don't buy it but I got it for $3 so let the fun begin, hopefully it survive.
 Most of my indoor plants are purchased on sale.  I love the satisfactory feeling when I can revive a plant that is almost dead like this mini palm.
 This peace lily is now blooming.
 I bought different kinds of succulents last summer but this is the only surviving one.
 Mighty pineapple is standing tall and proud, hopefully it blooms soon so I can show my children how the crown of the pineapple that we planted becomes one new plant like this.
 My calamondin tree wilted  a little bit when I brought it inside the house but glad it is now slowly coming back to life.

I like your plants! I wish I could grow them. I tend to kill them by accident. If I tried again, I'd get one on clearance too!

If I can actually keep my plants alive I think I would have more LOL. Looks like your ass is full of greenery and I would just love that.

Love the accent chair. You have a ton of plants you enjoy growing. I only grow stuff I can eat and serve on the table.

I can't keep any plants alive! LOL, I actually think it is our water. We have hard water and it has a lot of chlorine in it (city water). I do have a few succulents that haven't died yet

I love the decor in your come. Your sofa color is so. it's really nice. Love you plants as well. They're so pretty.

Beth Patterson said...

It made me so happy to see your plants, especially when I realized that they were going to get more than one photo. My house is dark and doesn't get much sunlight, but I have about ten plants that can tolerate the lower light conditions. They make me happy.

Justin Race said...

I love how many houseplants you have. That is my dream aesthetic, to have a house full of plants.

The Super Mom Life said...

I'm jealous of the number of plants you have in your home! We have 2 and it's a struggle.

Heather Jones said...

I love all the plants you have growing. Your indoors must be very rich in oxygen. I suffer from allergies and now that I think of it, plants clean the air. I should invest in more than the one I have!

Terri Steffes said...

I love that pop of color in your living room. I also loved all the plants you have in your home.

How beautiful plants do you have! I love green rooms. The plants give always a magical atmosphere to the house!

Kathy said...

Wow, your place looks beautiful! I know I need to do some tidying up as well. I have many things I need to get rid of or at least donate. I'm loving all your plants too!

NPC said...

I love the color in your home. I love your plants, I can't keep plants alive though for the life of me.

Emily Eileen said...

I love the bright colors in your house! Ours is full of browns and I need and want to change that up.

I love that you keep lot of indoor plants. I need to take lesson from you, mostly I kill indoor plants. Also love those bright colors.
