A Fiddle Leaf Fig & A Copper Bucket

Hey there friends Happy Monday...Hope you all had a great weekend!
While grocery shopping the other day I spotted this fiddle leaf fig in their nursery section...I know they're all the rage right now and knew I had the perfect spot for one so in my cart it went!
 Another new addition was this copper bucket my mom found for me in Home Goods...she knew I would love it!
 I placed the plant in a basket I already had near our fireplace in the family room.
I even changed up what I had on top of this cabinet...I added this wicker dome and simply filled it with apples...lovin it!
The view from my couch makes me smile:)

  Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Have a super week!!

Your fiddle leaf is pretty in that spot and the perfect size. Your frenchy chair just makes me jealous though. :)

Oh that's a very pretty plant. I think you'll enjoy that for years to come. That brings a lot of warmth into the room. That was sweet of your mom to think of you with that copper bucket too. It looks perfect by the fireplace.

I have been looking for one of those plants. I haven't found any around here. It looks great in your basket. That copper pot has such wonderful patina on it!

That was so sweet of your mom. It's pretty.

I don't think I've seen that type of plant before, so I'll have to look.

What a great find at the grocery store. I have looked and looked at every place in my area that sells plants but none have a fiddle leaf fig! I finally ordered one online but it was not nearly as big and full as yours! I love yours!

Diane said...

Love it, I may have to have a look around for one!

Barbara said...

Great new treasures...enjoy!

Is the plant real? For the life of me I am terrible with indoor things. Can grow a garden but kill anything I have inside.

Oh Martina, what a great find and gift from your Mom! Love it! That chair of yours is telling me that I need one! It's just wonderful!

Deserae said...

I love the new plant! I just threw out my two palms this weekend because they were infested with spider mites so I may consider a fig too. Yours looks so full and pretty!

What a pretty corner in your living room, Martina! Greenery really warms up a corner, and I love the little cabinet next to the chair.

Martina, that is a nice fiddle leaf fig. You can take off the bottom leaves. You will be removing the lower ones occasionally. My two are doing so good.

I love that "the view from my couch makes me smile". I feel the same way about certain views i my house.

I like the plant, but I LOVE the copper bucket. I need to visit Home Goods. Fortunately for my wallet, the only one is a 40 minute drive.

I love the basket and the plant is beautiful Martina.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

I haven't grown a Fiddle Leaf in years. I always adored the shape of the leaf and it's texture. It looks cute in the basket. That was a great find by your mom with the copper piece!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

First: you look so pretty in your new photo Martina! I love the fig plant in the basket. I'll be looking for one son, I can just see! I also love the tin basket your mother got you. Thanks for your sweet visit, hon!
Hugs,
FABBY

a beautiful room you have!

Shelia said...

Hi Martina! Oh, I love your fiddle leaf. We had one planted in the back yard and it got almost two stories tall! It loved the corner in the back yard but it got out of control and started to die. I'd never seen one planted in the ground before but it was huge! I kinda miss that fiddle! Your home always looks so pretty.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sarah said...

Martina, love the new plant. I need to find a new plant to replace one in our living room that looks pretty sad right now.
Thanks for having my blog on your sidebar. My feed is finally updating again. Yea!

Your heading sounds like the title for a poem or book, or maybe a country song.

Olive said...

The fiddle leaf fern would work anywhere.

Babs R said...

Your fiddle leaf fig looks so good there, and your copper bucket really makes for a cozy corner. Love your chair, too.
