In case you saw the title of this post and thought I was about to start preaching about hybrid cars and such let me assure you I am referring to a different kind of green. Not that I have anything against being "green". It's just not what I want to talk about today.
When we sold our house in Denver our real estate agent brought in an interior decorator to dress up our house a little before we sold it. Not only did I get free tips and tricks from her but she helped us sell our house super quick (2 weeks!). The #1 thing she taught me is that you should always, always have greenery in your house. I never forgot that advice and immediately upon moving into our new house here in the country I started adding greenery to my decor.
I now have 1 tree, 2 bushes, and 7 plants throughout my house!
Before I go on I should mention these are all fake plants. It's sad I know. See, I have a brown thumb not a green thumb. I kill everything and anything so I have finally given up on keeping live plants and gone to the fake. If you can do live plants then I applaud you.
Here is an example from my house of using greenery to decorate. It is one of the first plants I added to my house. I got this pot from Hobby Lobby on clearance for $3.
Not the prettiest thing but I knew by adding a little bit of this:
I could get something pretty like this:
And here it sits on my buffet table in the dining room (next to me scentsy, gotta love scentsy!). Isn't that nice?
So go green!
I got a tree for my house on sale at Michael's for $15 and it was the best purchase I ever made.
