Organizing and Plant Making Supplies

I thought that I would show you some of the things that I've bought at the Dollar Tree lately.

A couple of office supplies, these will hold some of my clay tools and texturing sheets.

Some baskets,  I like having a pile of baskets to gather the supplies to use for a project or to sort things that need to be put away.  They are helping alot while I'm trying to get stuff shifted around.

I like these baskets because they fold up or stack together when not being used,  and it's even better when the folded ones fit into the stacked ones.   I think the price was right also, $1 each.

 Then a few things that I think will make good plants.

The bunch has 6 branches  (3 shown) in  3 shades of green.    I think 5 or 6 of these leaves in a pot will make a good plant.

Poke the picture to see the texture of the leaves better.

I'm not sure what kind of plant this will become but looked interesting to me.  I really like the yellow pompom flowers and the spikey leaves.

And a bunch with lots of red, orange and yellow styrofoam balls.   Most of these that I find are usually pink, purple or blue.  This is the first that I've found in the more useful colors.

Now I have to get back to organizing before I can play with the plant making supplies.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
