Tuesday Transplant..

I finally decided it was about time to.. take the time and transplant my plants into those pretty pots I told you I got at Ollies a few weeks ago here...I took a few photos to show you and Mr Lou was gettin a little jiggy with my cam on my phone too!..
This was the first one to be replanted..Have no idea what any of the names are for these plants.. 

Mr Lou had bought me this, I don't even know what to call it a few years back and it had all these different kinds of plants in it.. I always refer to it as "the jungle you bought me"..
Me getting my hands in the potting soil. It's still cold here so this actually felt good getting my hands in some dirt! 

I have no clue what the name of this plant is either. Mr Lou keeps telling me it's called a "Snake plant"? All I know is it keeps getting taller and taller..

The man was feelin a lil randy with the cam.. 


Here are my three lovelies all replanted in their new homes. Now I just hope they don't go into shock and croak on me! But, I do think they look much nicer in these cute little ceramic pots. 

Next thing I want to get some cute vintage plates to put underneath them. I smell a thrift store trip coming soon.

  1. We are able to get similar pots like those here. I haven't been plant shopping in a while. Most of my outside plants are doing rather iffy. Weather has been strange the past couple of years. We certainly don't have much of a winter. Hope you are having a good week. Tammy

  2. Hi again Robyn. Well, I finally got to your blogger etiquette posts. You certainly got a lot of comments on that one. And I pretty much agree with what everyone said. I have so enjoyed the friends I've made through blogging. Time is limited most days so I do the best I can when it comes to following up on comments. Some days I don't feel very inspired to post, especially when I am so busy and haven't been able to create or do anything special, but there are true blue blogging friends just like in real life who visit and comment no matter what you have to say. I think that's very special! There are some blogs I only visit for inspiration and never comment on because I know I won't get a comment back. I don't believe in rules for blogging. Everyone has a different reason for being here. I do believe in common courtesy and respect whether in the blog world or the real world. Some of the commenters on your post are some of my favorite bloggers. :) Happy hump day! Tammy

  4. oh, they look so nice all lined up in those matching pots! I have two plants like those two outer ones. I have no idea what they are called --I got them from someone when my MIL died. The middle plant I had for thirty years---I had gotten it when my oldest boy was born. It grew to be huge and nothing you did could kill it. When we downsized I decided not to bring it along!! It was a hard decision...but hey, it was just a plant. It is amazing how one can get attached to things that have memories joined to it!

    1. Yep thats how it happens.. Clutter.. We get so 'emotionally' attached to things and thats how we end up keeping everything.. I do it also..I've been trying as I slowly clean out things to get rid of to let go of the emotional part and look at it as just a 'thing' but it's hard going.. There are some things though that I will never be able to part with..

  5. You go girl! It is such a messy job in the house I always wait until the weather is nice outside to do it. They all look lovely in their new homes. I think those are all belonging to the draecena family? Yes, snake plant or MIL's tongue...snake plant is more polite, corn plant and not sure about the other one but they are low light and lots of people buy them for offices with fluorescent lighting. They should be easy to care for. You did a nice job. I usually stand back after I'm done and mine are all "leaning" one way or another. Yours are nice and straight.
    BTW, the candles...yes, hot soapy water. I just throw them in my dish water while it's still hot and come back in a few minutes and it's floating around in the jar in one big piece which you can just grab and pull out. Oh, and Tammy (T's Daily Treasure) reminded me of what she does which is crochet covers for them and put a tea light in them and gift them! Hers are really cute too! Good luck!

    1. I was going to wait until the warmer weather too but I dont know this year when it's going to get warmer..LOL...They've been sitting in those old plastic pots for like 2 years and I finally couldn't stand looking at them anymore.. I made minimal mess. I was lucky this time...LOL

      Thank you for the follow up on the candles! :)

  6. Good job, Robyn. I have a few plants I need to repot myself but will wait until the weather warms a bit and I can do it outside. They should all do fine with limited lighting, too. Hope you find some great thrifted saucers- xo Diana

  15. Getting my hands into dirt is the best therapy for me. It's a sure cure for Spring Fever. Love the pots and can't wait to see if you found some thrifted plates. So happy to have you share with SYC.
    hugs,
