Phil Collins is in my living room

the plant not the amazingly talented singing icon!

Two days ago the girls and I were hanging out in the plant section of Walmart, cause that's what we do, and we came across this fabulous Split Leaf Philodendron for $9.00. That's right NINE DOLLARS!!  Needless to say, I hugged him and brought him home.  I named him Phil Collins because I am a huge fan of Phil and it's a Philodendron so it just fit. :)

Isn't he just miraculous!  The leaves are so green and huge and awesome!  It's all kinds of amazing how adding a large plant like this can change a space.  We have been diligently working on redecorating the house and I have discovered that plants are the least expensive items that make the biggest impact.

For example, Phil cost $9.00!  The super large planter was $7.00 at Target and a bag of dirt was $6.00.  So for $22.00 I have an enormous statement piece that will only get bigger!

As you may have noticed we have made some major changes in the house since my last post.  We just finished our brand new dining room table and we are working on the benches (hence the lack of chairs) I plan on blogging about the building of the table so you can see for yourself how hard we worked.  There is still so much left to do in there so keep an eye out for a few posts on dining room progress.  :)
