Tag Archives: air plants

I found myself in the magical land of Olympia this weekend for Peter’s birthday. We went to the Great Wolf Lodge, played on FANTASTIC water slides (the best was called the Howlin’ Tornado… Star and I screamed the entire way down) and spent the night. The next day I dropped Star off for an interview and then hit up Goodwill. My quest for an ice cream machine came to an end when I found a fully functional Rival Yogurt and Ice Cream maker for $8.00, two 12 cup mini muffin tins for $.99 each and some little lantern Christmas lights for $5.00. That’s some great loot. After her interview, Star and I went to Bark and Garden where I found some more air plants. Then we went to the Olympia Farmers Market where I got some new asparagus, a lemon verbena plant and an apple mint plant.

There is tons of cool things happening in this photo. 1.) yes, that is the crystal garden Star gave me for my birthday, there in the lower right 2.) the air plant closest to us looks like one of the aliens from the Simpson 3.) the further air plant has red tips 4.) yes, those are ghost salt and pepper shakers hugging. End result: 100% amazing.
