Houseplant Villages

I have become newly obsessed with the idea of turning all of my house plants into tiny villages for tiny, invisible people.

In fact, I already bought a tiny metal-cast soldier to hang out in my jade plant. Now all he needs is a castle to protect.


  1. The interesting thing about this, to me, is that these are all completed structures. I think this art form cries out for a building that's in progress!

    1. You're right! Or a building that's in decay...

  2. That is fantastic and yes, yes you do need to create such things in your own place.
