The very first post of hopefully (literally?) a zillion more. It feels like this should be a more monumental occasion; but in reality, I am sitting here, makeup-less, in a candle-lit café literally 30 seconds away from my flat (because, let’s be real, I cant be bothered to go much further than that on a Saturday), where a scarf-wrapped taxidermied squirrel is staring at my blank word document in judgement.
Welcome, friends, to Wolf & Stag.
It feels as though I should be writing something more inspiring, thought provoking and interesting for my first post. But what do I really want to write about? Freaking plant pots, which are the bane of my existence currently, because – against Stag’s pleading advice – I meandered my way to Columbia Road flower market a few weekends ago and bought some plants. The problem is, I can’t go to Columbia Road flower market without buying plants. Every. Single. Time. This has only gotten slightly out of control after seeing so many succulent pictures come onto Pinterest, and they are always “THREE FOR A TENNER!” End of day? “TWO FOR A FIVER!” and there goes my willpower.
And now – again, much to Stag’s chagrin– our house has 300 succulents scattered precariously on everything.
Ever since, I’ve been on the hunt for pretty, adequately sized (harder than you think) plant pots to put these suckers in.
However, unfortunately, Stag and I live in Central London, where finding something like ‘a plant pot’ is like walking into an overpriced boutiquey haystack and asking, “Hey do you guys sell basic needles?”
Thus, online shopping has become my beacon of hope. Places such like Trouva, Darley Avenue and Not on the High Street are my go-to stops for all house knick-knacks. Reasonably priced, beautiful home items are my Holy Grail of Happiness.
And with that in mind, here are the W&S House Hunt of Plant Pots:
- Faja Handcrafted Pot | from £15 | Henry & Future on Not On the High Street
- Mauve Dash Plant Pot | £12.50 | This Way to the Circus
- Metal Plant Stand Black | £40 | Darley Avenue
- Lynx Glazed Pot | £15 | Holly’s House on Trouva
- White/Black Cement Mini Pot | £10 | Sort on Not On The High Street
- Indigo Plant Pot | £22.75 | Miafleur on Not On The High Street
- Plant Pot | £9 | Future & Found on Trouva
- Flower Pot Made of Concrete | £12.59 | Motoroto on Etsy
P.S. There is a framed telephone on the wall of this café. I love you, East London.
