Say hello to my little orange friend

Look who came home with me from Home Depot the other day. He jumped into my cart; what could I do? And look, he's like a little brother to the plant in the corner, a gift from a friend. Aww! For $4.98, you can grab your own. The 4-inch-tall pots come in turquoise and hot pink and all sorts of nifty hues, and the cacti vary, too.

OOOh I got one of these in turquoise from Superstore (Cdn grocery chain). Love him!!

Kim said...

Cute! I have a tough time leaving Home Depot without a new little plant orphan to add to the brood. That little cactus is seriously tempting!

Wow, those pots are much more nimble than you would think at first glance, with the jumping and all. But they very obviously wanted to go home with you, and I think they look very happy.

These are so cute, and they seem very happy to be there.

I so wish we had a Home Depot here *sigh*

Just what I need since I am a plant killer. Maybe a cactus would survive in my office.

Jenifir said...

What a good little ambassador that pot is for the Orange Emporiium that is Home Depot! So enthusiastic. I might end up with the pink and turquoise too as I have been drawn there lately.

Anali said...

Those are so pretty! I need some more planters, but never thought of going to Home Depot. I guess I need to step in there for a bit.

The New Black said...

Super cute! Too bad I can't keep plants alive :)

Annie said...

They are adorable! I have a plant similar to your little one whom I call Spike. You can't kill it, even after 9 years and 3 different states! Love the pop the vase gives the plant.

Georgia B. said...

love it! especially with the bright green cactus in it!

i just love when pretty things jump into my cart. :)

Renee said...

Thanks Jess... I have been looking for orange accents for months and those pots are just the thing! My quilting studio is decorated in purple and orange. I have found plenty of purple accents, but no orange. Never thought about Home Depot!

I wonder if my cats would try to eat one of these...
