Silk Plants

Beautiful Silk Plants from Commercial Silk Int’l

Silk Plants I’ve always loved to garden and be outdoors.  Over the years I’ve had a few impressive gardens and some pretty spectacular (for me anyway) harvests.  But until recent years, my houseplants never reflected my green thumb.  I often forgot to water them and finding time to repot them was nearly impossible.  I spent many years, while my children were young and life was even more hectic, feeling stressed and ashamed every time I’d look at my scraggly, parched…

Never Lose Your Keys Again

Never Lose Your Keys Again!
