Plant Life.

Orla Kiely Enamel Plant Pot* | Flamingo Gifts £16.99

If I were a house plant, I think I'd really like to live in a nice pot. Not necessarily an expensive one. Just a nice one. One that people liked looking at. If I were a house plant I think I'd be very happy in this Orla Kiely number. The retro pattern is effortlessly chic, the cream & grey colour combination is beautiful and I love that it comes with its own matching saucer.

I told you I really had a thing for plants, and the desire to fill each room with greenery continues. Although currently plant-less, I'm certain my new pot will be occupied very soon. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to a trip to the garden centre. I'm there so often now (for a nosey around and a trip to the cafe where the best cupcakes live!) they're beginning to recongise me. No regrets! Thank you Flamingo Gifts for the excuse to make another trip, you're the best!

Happy Thursday!

  7. I dedicate myself a lot into gardening lately. I really enjoy the feeling helping something nice to grow. These are very nice pots. Mine are nice but not pretty like yours.

  9. This pot is so cute - I love the quirky retro pattern. I don't own anything by Orla Kiely yet but her designs are so pretty that I could be tempted to pick something up, particularly something I can enjoy every day like a little plant pot!

    I'm with you on having more green in the house - I've never been a plant person before but my boyfriend bought a little green plant for our bathroom and it honestly makes me smile whenever I see it. Does that sound crazy?! It helps bring a little extra life into the flat which is lovely, especially when I'm so desperate for spring!

    1. Definitely. I never would have thought to invest in a pretty plant pot but I totally would again now. They're so pretty to look at and add so much to a room.

      That doesn't sound crazy at all, house plants are wonderful! xo

  10. I like succulents because they seem like their easy to take care of. I already have a dog to take care, so I know a regular plant wouldn't survive with me

  19. I'm awful with plants, I so love nature and being outdoors but I just can't look after plants, it's awful. I was given a massive aloe vera plant for Christmas and it's just alone in my kitchen. :( if I was a houseplant I would not want to have me as an owner. xx
