Adventures in Homelifying: Socker & his Prickly Friends

I love our new flat. I am determined to do it justice with my homelifying! (That is not a real word; I googled it. But it's definitely the right word for what I am doing.)

Although we are renting it mostly furnished, we have quite a bit of stuff (understatement!) and so we popped along to Ikea to get some extra bits and pieces, where I also picked up this baby - i.e. my new favourite thing, the Socker Greenhouse.

I used to have a super-epic succulent collection when I was a teenager and I have always wanted to start a new collection. I love succulents! These three are the start of this new collection.

I love this little greenhouse. I get the feeling it's meant more as decorative than as strictly functional, but it actually does work. I have put a thermometer inside and everything, and I can confirm it is, in fact, warmer inside than outside. SCIENCE! Also, it looks good. Two of my favourite qualities in an object!

Also, I love that I am using it to hold cacti, and it is called Socker. Fans of The Last Airbender might remember this little gem. (I have been spelling it Sokka in my head.)
