Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

Posted By: Kristi

I am realizing that many of my posts are about things I want. As a reader it has to seem a bit selfish when we are at the time of the year where we celebrate giving. Please understand that I LOVE to give; there isn't much that makes me happier. I enjoy making others feel special and seeing their faces light up when you give them something they have been wanting. Spoiling others is so much more fun than buying things for myself. Unfortunately I can't tell you about the things that I have been buying for those I love because it would ruin the surprise. I wanted to make sure to clear that up, I was feeling like I was sounding a little selfish.

What it comes down to is that I love to decorate, have a lot of decorating that needs to be done and I crave a good deal. I have enjoyed sharing the progress of our house projects and am thankful for all of your helpful comments and decorating advice, thank you.

Now, time to share another thing that has caught my eye. I was browsing Pinterest and saw this picture, captioned: fiddle leaf fig tree.

Oh my goodness, this tree is amazing! I love the huge leaves and the beautiful green color. I have a basket much like the one this tree is in and would love to fill it with one of these. I had to continue searching for more images.

Aren't they gorgeous? I love bringing the outdoors in but sadly I am much like my mom and can't seem to keep a plant alive. Not even a cactus. Lame I know. I try, I really do. Thankfully Carson was blessed with a green thumb and can make anything grow.

Yes, I want one. Will I get one? We'll see. I am spoiled but I don't get everything I want. = )

What is something that you would love to buy for yourself but feel a little guilty about it and haven't pulled the trigger?


  1. So pretty, I should look into the local nursery and see if they have some.

    You crack me up, I totally didn't get the selfish vibe:)

  2. Im so happy to know Im not the only person who cant keep a plant alive! My grandma used to say its okay to want things, youre only selfish when you put your wants infront of others needs. :)

  3. What an awesome looking tree! Like you, I have a blac thumb (even killed a cactus). I think you should definitely get one though...maybe it will give you inspiration to keep it alive :) By the way, I've given you the Sunshine can check out the details on my blog!

  4. Your mom kept plants alive really well until she had babies. Then she was busy keeping them alive and happy. = )

  5. HA I never witnessed that. = ) Actually, I never really saw you kill any plants but you always told us you couldn't keep them alive. Thanks for keeping us alive, it is much appreciated!
