I've had several people say they'd love to have house plants, but they just can't seem to get the watering right, so I thought I'd share a photo of an automatic waterer I found online recently that I think might be a solution to that common problem.
If you read this blog with any regularity, you know that I've had an obsession with vintage bird decor for quite some time and have used the theme extensively in my new apartment. You can imagine how delighted I was when I ran across an automatic waterer that looks as if it were inspired by Oiva Toikka's glass birds. (For more about Oiva Toikka, check out this wonderful interview.)

These are available online from Solutions and come two-to-a-package for $19.95. I'm a little confused about the size of the birds, because one description on the site says the birds are about 7" from tip of beak to tip of tail, but another description lists the dimensions as 12 1/2" L x 5"W x 2 1/2"D. No matter the size, I think they'll be beautiful nestled under the leaves of a dracaena or a rubber plant and plan to order some for myself.
