GUEST BLOGGER HAYLEY ON HOUSEPLANTS

HAPPY HOUSEPLANTS / HAPPY HUMANS I remember the day I set out to buy some of my first house plants. After having worked at Sparrows Coffee Tea & Newsstand for awhile, I decided that I too wanted a plant ladder with precious little cacti and succulents like the one in the shop.
