Mini terra cotta pots sprayed with: Rust-Oleum, Semi-Gloss White, $9.14 +
Rust-Oleum, Crystal Clear Enamel Gloss, $7.90 / Terrain copper plant tray (similar)

I decided to take my green thumb indoors. While on a trip to Home Depot to get some new babies for Mr. Wonderful’s new office (reveal coming soon), I sneaked to the outside nursery and found these pretty neon cacti staring back at me.

After lots of loud “ouch!” screams in the somewhat deserted nursery that night and picking, “That one all the way back there,” and strategically moving others around like Tetris, I settled on these three.


Benjamin says one looks like an alien but my curiosity wants to know what the flowers will look like once they bloom.


Picked up the mini terra cotta pots at Berridge Nursery for $1.25 each, spray painted them and ta-da! The copper tray I had in storage, I bought it for an unknown reason, probably because it was on sale. I love it when stuff I buy and have no purpose for ends up being used eventually! Shhh, don’t tell Benjamin.

Here’s to a little ode to the desert in my office.
