Warby Parker

My husband recently told me about a company he’s planning on ordering his new glasses from. Warby Parker, based out of New York, is leading the way in affordable designer glasses.

Spider Plants

Plants are a great way to bring life into any room.  Spider Plants are one of the easiest houseplants to grow so if you love plants but don’t have much of a green thumb this is perfect for you! They have beautiful long green and white leaves and reproduce often.  I have three spider plants in my home right now and I love them!  I root and pot the offspring from my plants and give them to my friends and family as gifts.  You can customize your plants in fun pots and it’s a great gift for a housewarming, birthday, etc.  Spider plants can be displayed in hanging pots or on shelves and coffee tables.

You can find spider plants at most nurseries locally. I like Frank Ott Nursery.  You can also find them at Lowe’s and Home Depot.

Here are some easy directions for how to care for spider plants
