new studio mascot!

Today we welcome in our new studio mascot! We found him at the Etsy shop Plaid Pigeon, which just so happens to be in Austin, Texas (only the coolest city ever!), and we kept his given name, Aster the Apatosaurus. He is a reclaimed toy painted in one of our brand colors, turquoise; now i just need to find a little hint of red for him to wear... oh snap! I should knit him a little red scarf! That's it. I'm doin' it. Complete with a sweet little succulent plant, he is the perfect little edition to our fun little studio! I love him ♥
I've been on the hunt here in Hawaii, well, Oahu specifically, for a nursery that sells succulents, but I have had no success. I just love them! They have so much personality and they are easy to take care of. I had this tiny baby air plant shipped to me from another Etsy shop, Tortoise Loves Donkey (I love the shop names over there at Etsy). They have the cutest ever little air plants in all sorts of tiny glass jars and vials... and we all know how much I love anything miniature.


Does anyone know of a nursery on Oahu that sells succulents and/or airplants?

UPDATE: Here's a pic of Aster in his new habitat! :D What a perfect fit huh?!

It's hit or miss for me, too, finding succulents and air plants. I usually check out the garden shops if I'm in the area (Home depot, Koolau farmers, etc.) I've not checked out any of the Botanical garden sales (Fosters, Lyons etc)

That Dinosaur has a prehistoric case of "fern-back." It's where a Fern randomly attaches itself to your back and makes its home there. It's like one minute you just La Dee Da Dee Doo and then it's like "Oh Snap there's a Fern on my back!"
