welcome, welcome

 thanks everyone for being so supportive in my last post. my heart is filled to the brim with happiness and i can't stop smiling.

i would all like you to welcome to the family, two new cacti! please put your hands together and welcome...
harriet with her beautiful orange/red flowers
and wilbur, the smallest & flattest cacti around.
we obtained these guys at the ashby flee market this weekend while dropping off a deposit to get a custom piece of furniture made by a local craft man. sounds fancy? well, yes and no. he will be making us basically a horizontal shelf from solid untreated pine and then we will be adding legs to it. we have been searching for the perfect piece to house tom's ever growing album collection and nothing was right, expensive, crap or too big for our place. we were set on making it oursleves but we are just a bit busy and this guy's pricing is amazing! he is making it for less then $100 and his work is really good. so we, not only get an awesome unique piece but something of quality and we are supporting a local craft too. it should be done fairly soon and i can't wait to move the living room around and share!

  4. Great new cacti, I never seem to be able to get them to flower :)
    Love that you're getting a local craft person to make your shelf for you, as you say it's not only great to support them but also you get something one-off and unique, can't wait to see it xox
