ikea sells fancy blogger trees


I killed my white fig tree. Obviously not on purpose. I did all I could to keep it alive but week after week the leaves just fell off. When the last leaf hung there and I watched it turn yellow I came to the realization that the tree wasn't shedding, it was gonzo. I'm not awesome at keeping plants alive which is why I refuse to spend big bucks on anything green for our house.

A few weeks after it went into the garbage, I spotted a REAL fiddle leaf fig tree at Ikea for $15. Cue this commercial. Here I was searching around Toronto last Summer trying to find one when IKEA obviously carried fiddle leaf figs. (No, not obviously, since when did Ikea sell these trees!!?*) Anyways, I will have to re-pot it and put it in a nice basket in our TV room. Until then, I bring it to the sink to water every Monday. I sometimes dust the leaves and talk nicely to it. Maybe the love will make this one stay around longer.

And lastly - I wanted to post this picture for more than just showing off my new tree.... I wanted to show you reason #85 why I love, love having 1 huge sink basin vs. it being split in two. You know, so you can put monster house plants in it.

*Kay gave me a tip that Ikea had them a few months back so I knew to look out for them there. But really, I'm shocked Ikea sells these.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page
layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way
of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hello there just came upon your blog via Google after I
typed in, "Blogger: Aubrey & Lindsay's Little House Blog" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm happy
I found it simply because your content is exactly

if I collect some information from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.

I am new to building websites and I was wanting to know if having your blog title relevant to your articles and other content
really that crucial? I see your title, "Blogger: Aubrey & Lindsay's Little House Blog " does appear to be spot
on with what your blog is about but yet, I prefer to
keep my title less content descriptive and based more
around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
Any kind of help would be greatly valued.
