I really like that! I like craftsman style design and I think that fits that style very well.

I can imagine... It's hard for some people to understand why we would want to collect houseplants Big Grin

Lovely presentation Victoria! Those containers have drainage holes right? It is a beauty, though personally I find the container too deep for the cacti, but as long as it has good drainage and good well draining soil below that top dressing, it should be good.
Lucky is your friend for such a nice gift. Thumbs up
