Some of the best things for the home don't cost an arm and a leg. Each year we kick off the new year with the beginning of amarylis and paper white season. In the depths of winter (just beginning) there's nothing nicer than witnessing the birth of a new life within the safe confines of a glass of water (though you've got to be careful, I lost two paperwhites at home already - midnight crash! - because they were too top heavy for their container).

As Christmas presents we give large amarylis bulbs to friends and family, and keep one for ourselves. The HUGE one above is a giant version from Smith & Hawken in our bathroom. It's been going for about two weeks.

The paperwhite up top is in my office, and I just inserted it in water this morning. I am going to blog its progress over the next few weeks and urge any and all of you to join me in parenting new life in your home or office as well. Below are my best links for ordering bulbs, and you can usually find them locally at flower shops as well. Join me and send me pics at newyork@apartmenttherapy.com!

Best, Maxwell
