for all the newbies around this spot, i am a huge green thumb wearing lover of plants. i grow them everywhere. i grow them big and small. i grew some for our wedding, and have used plant cuttings to diy projects too. i have realized this is truly a hobby of mine. and it's nice to have a husband who doesn't mind sharing a space that may one day be overrun and filled with vines, trees, and anything else i deem to place in a pot.
plants are not only beneficial to your space (as they can help purify the air), but are an inexpensive fix for a design dilemma or a quick way to add some texture and interest to your home. not to mention, you can take cuttings from your plants ... root them ... and create more! seriously, this is one habit (or hobby) i don't intend to quit.
stay tuned, as i've got an idea swirling around in my head for an airplant display that will hopefully make its way into a diy post soon.
so, do you have a green thumb?
what's growing around your place?
ps//check out my board on pinterest for some plant inspiration and ways to care for and keep your green things happy.

my latest crush happens to be on a sweet little etsy shop by the name of sloan + tommy. i love the modern simplicity of their collection and somehow they have managed to turn concrete into beautiful geometric designs. yes concrete! and even better, this is a shop after my own animal lovin' heart as a portion of their sales are donated to austin pets alive, an organization dedicated to promoting pet adoption and providing resources, education, and programs helping people to help pets. and you know what else has me smitten ... their packaging!
ps//i've got my eyeballs on this one.
and something else//stay tuned as this etsy friend will be back on the blog with a generous prize for one lucky reader! she's so nice like that so don't miss it ... (hint, hint, she'll be here on friday!)
hello there friends. hope the weekend treated you fine and you are ready for the week ahead. last week proved to be one of challenges, a few disappointments, and some crazy amounts of stress. i'm hoping this week will be a little more kind and show some mercy on me! we have all had moments where nothing seems to go our way and we just can't catch a break. but then determination kicks in (or maybe some caffeine) and gets us moving again, bringing us closer to a resolution. just keep pushing ahead. don't let your spirit be broken. there will be good to come. even if we have to fight thru the mess!
it's monday again.
i'll keep pushing ahead.
do the same too, ok?
we've got this!
