OMG, house plants that grow in the dark?!

Dear Reader, I am obsessed with buying house plants. All I can think about right now is all the twenty five plants I want to buy – to add to the ten I already have, the textured vases they will stand in, and the elegant stands that will carry those vases. All I see is […]

Popeye’s Village is a quaint little village tucked away on one of Malta’s rocky shores.
