Outside... Inside...

I keep reading about winter and cold weather is coming soon... no more outdoor gardens, etc etc... wellllllllllllll... you can all do what Martha does... Bring the outdoors in!!! Want a Cactus Garden... no problem...
Minature Trees...Flowers...Wild Life... even birds...You don't have a green thumb... paint GREEN walls...
Perfect centerpiece on the dining table...

Merci Martha! You think of everything!!! Now if you still want to head outdoors... pop over to ASouthern Dreamer and see what other Outdoor Wednesday participants are showing off today!

Fifi, Beautiful pictures and great plants, but I don't seem to be able to grow anything indoors, but they are great to look at.

Happ Wednesday.

Beautiful photos, I love all that Martha does. And I guess if I had her money i might be able to do all of this, but since I don't I will just have to enjoy hers. Thank you for sharing, I love that shade of green on the wall too.

Oh I absolutely love each and every photo and all the interiors. Are they of different homes? Did you take this photos yourself? I love a place designed with old world charm and history. I also love your paintings and prints...which one to order? hmmmm

Love those green walls. That Martha sure has a green thumb. The plants that I have brought inside have not fared nearly as well as hers, of course, she's Martha.

Hi Fifi,

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! I just saw one of your prints & some postcards on Ulrike's blog. They look great. I like your use of bold colours and the simplicity of the drawings!

Have a lovely day!

Is that why my house always looks like a forest in the winter?!!
I received my print and note cards the other day. Thank you sooo much!! My husband took one look at the print, and said, yes that is definitely you!!
Thanks again!!

I bring plants in too but don't have the elan of Martha Stewart!

Ashley @ AshleysBusy said...

I love having plants inside. My only problem is that the cats love them too. They're always messing around with them, drives me nuts, lol.

You can always satisfy your need for beautiful flowers in your home with the purchase of a Sophie Dahy Designs arrangement. Not only will they survive the winter, but they will brighten your home for years to come!

Hello Fifi,

I love the last photo and the one of the cactus garden. I love having live plants in my home, but I have to be careful because sometimes, the furbabies love them even more...

Thanks for sharing!
