One more "before and after" photo before I retire to my new red bed...

Before I killed my favorite plant...


And after...


Farewell favorite plant. The bookshelf looks lopsided without you!

RIP

We once had a favorite plant like that, and it didn't survive the heat on our move! Very sad!

This is very sad. I love ivy plants and such that grow up over the sides and hang down like this.

I was devastated when we fried our ivy plant during the move.

how did it die? Did you mention this?

Amberli said...

Nope, I was too embarrassed to mention how it died. So, the story goes that the little leaves started to become dry and brittle probably due to the heat being turned up during the cold and I thought the the solution to that problem would be to water water water the little guy. He just got worse and worse until I was forced to dump him in the trash can outside and when I did so there was like three inches of water in the bottom of the basket/pot. So yeah, death from drowning. Poor little guy!

Oh and yes, the bookshelf is from Ikea and I love it! Hooray for an Ikea finally coming to UT, ironic that I no longer live in UT!
