My New Plant

My nan gave me this Aloe Vera plant for my bathroom recently. I have to admit it's not the most attractive of indoor plants but I've read it has many health benefits, including that it purifies the air quality.

I had a look around to see if I could nab a spare plant pot from my parents, but they were either way too small or too big. You see i've always been an outdoor plant kind of girl so I've never bought my own indoor plant pots before. I wanted something pretty yet simple. I had a look on the high street but they didn't come up trumps as per usual, so I had a quick look online. After a lot of surfing, I found these beautiful second hand tin pots. I managed to get them at £3.50 for all three, so I snapped them up instantly! Do you like them?

I've never really ordered anything big before online but the seller assured me and happily sent it to me through the courier Parcelforce. It was delivered to my doorstep in perfect condition a day or so later. I was chuffed! You wouldn’t know they were second hand! They barely look used. These pots were exactly what I had in mind and added a little touch of shabby chic to my bathroom. 

I'm loving galvanised tins at the moment. I’ve seen a lot of them on Pinterest in the wedding section. Hopefully we can use these pots as part of the decor for our own wedding.
A little update:  We are still saving every penny for our deposit for our one day home. It’s so hard at the moment because all I want to do is start planning our big day, but it is more important to both of us to get our own place before we book a date for it.

  1. How attractive the pots are,mot unusual too.
    Good luck with your house project, it isn't easy for young people now to get onto the property ladder.

  2. I love my aloe plant and use it lots, break a leaf off and open and squeeze on sunburn (no chance of that at present!) Or a cut and it really helps heal. I share your interest love am a little addicted.
