Picture Wall Collage – DIY

Big day!  The wall collage is finally complete - or at least until I get an urge to tweak and move around frames.  This project has been in the works for many months.  I didn't rush finding art because I wanted each piece to make me feel happy and inspired -- now looking at my collection it is clear that…

Industrial Pipe Desk – DIY

Now that I am working from home a couple days a week I've been shopping around for a well made desk that wouldn't break the budget.  I found desks were either extremely expensive and well made, decently priced with fake wood, or just cheap in price and quality.  I love a bargain, but I hate purchasing "cheap quality" goods and…

Vintage Rattan Chair Inspiration

My mom kept around a old rattan chair  she used as a rocking chair in the nursery when we were kids.  For the past 10 years it has been in her room used as my dads personal hamper.  So I thought I would offer to take it off their hands, find dad an actual hamper, and use the rocker as a…

I should have known I was destined to be an obsessor of all things plant from the day we moved cities and my mother filled the car to the brim with a small jungle and her children.  We were engulfed by indoor plants for a 8+ hour trip, just so her plants didn't risk death in the moving van.  For…

I have been seeing lots of DIYs for concrete planters and was inspired for my garden.  A few of my favorite concrete planter DIYs…

Etsy Finds

I am thinking about adding a new section to the blog called Monthly Etsy Finds.  I love, love love everything about Etsy.  Especially finding one of a kind goods- its similar to the craigslist and thrift shopping high!  And i love supporting people that are doing and selling what they love.  Maybe one day ill acquire a skill that allows me to…

Kilim Floor Cushion Inspiration

I love a good floor pillow- maybe its my inner yogi or maybe it's just that I have always liked sitting on the floor... Whichever it is- I am currently on the prowl for some cute floor cushions or possibly even fabric and a DIY tutorial.  Here is some of my latest inspiration: Love the aztec prints- found this at…
