Styling a Coffee Table with New Plants

Hello Friends!
I just thought I'd take a break from painting trim to share with you my coffee table.
Because it is winter, everything kinda starts to feel a little bit depressing.  
Do you agree?
 The trees are all bare, it's cold and gloomy, and some days the sun doesn't even make a peek.
This is always the time of year that I load up on Vitamin D and start dreaming of Spring time.
I have found that by bringing in a few extra house plants, it really helps to liven up our home.
 Now I'm not the best plant grower around :)
 So....I have discovered the discounted section in all of my favorite stores that sell plants.
 A lot of stores will reduced the price of plants that may need a little extra TLC.  Either the plants need to be re-potted, or maybe they need a little more sunshine.  Whatever the reason, I like to think I can save them.  And well, then if the plants don't make it.......it was on its way out anyway, Right?
I picked these two little plants up at Fred Meyers, and at Lowe's.  I have bought a few more plants as well, and so far they are all surviving.   
The cute little green enamel pots are from Hobby Lobby, also half price.
I have simply re-potted one of the plants, dividing it between the two new pots.
 Now it has more room to grow.
I then had fun styling my coffee table, giving it a fresh new look.  I layered my tray with books, candles, and some of my favorite little things, like a sweet little dish and some rocks.
 
 I know I've mentioned before, but I absolutely love burning incense.  
They give off such a natural and calming scent.
Now, I know the smoke is a little harsh for some people,  but I have found that by just placing a few un-lit sticks around the house, they still give off that great scent, without being over powering. 
You should give it a try.
I love sitting on the couch and admiring my little tray of happiness.  
It's a good way to shake off those winter blues.
Okay, now back to painting! Soooo much trim to paint!

 Thanks for stopping by,

Emily

  2. I hope the trim painting is going well! It's good to take breaks! Your coffee table is so sweet. I'm a religious plant killed despite my best efforts. This time of year I really hunker down and spend time with my houseplants since I miss the outdoors.
