I was just checking out their site and all I can say is that I would really like my money-plant to actually start growing money instead of leaves!

Here are some of the products I like. (  Click on the images to  go to the concerned page on the site!)

First ones are my abs favourites!

These have been made of terracotta , wow!

These are actually  natural loofahs!  Really pretty!

Shown above is a set of 6 loofahs which come in a paper vase!

Btw, nobody paid me to write this post but they should, you know;)
