Proud To Be A Hoarder

What's wrong with hoarding, anyway? Isn't it better than sending stuff to landfill?

There are many things that are too humble to be sent to the charity shop but too good to throw away.

A lot of plants find their way into this house- and when they die or get planted out I usually keep the pots. I tell myself they'll come in useful.

And yesterday Ailz was working with her houseplants- and they did.
