Happy Sunday!

I can’t believe it’s been years since I found this beauty. You may remember it from this post. Since then I have been trying to find a decent shade for it. Luckily, I found this one at the thrift store for $1. I thought I would try it out, since it is a common type/color available on most lamps. To make sure my office coordinated, I found a matching shade for the other brass table lamp in my office. And it definitely adds some character alongside my grandmother’s typewriter.

Happy Decorating!

The Accidental Great Succulent Propagation (sort-of)

Standard

Ah, so you know when you just nudge your perfectly symmetrical succulent with a little force and POOF no longer the perfect specimen that lives in every homemakeover show/magazine/blog post.

Well it turns out most of these “arms” broke off perfectly! I had no idea my succulents could get any more adorable. (Can you tell I love them? Haha) I’ve been keeping them next to the window on moist soil that I spray at least once a week (depending on how dry the air is). It’s certainly takes a while (months) but this is what a few of them look like now:

Next step, when to put them in soil…

Happy Winter Gardening!

A year just flew on by…

Standard

To quote Mr. Owen Wilson “WOW”…I can’t believe it’s been a year since I posted. It’s been the year of working, moving and of course… weddings!
Renting always has it’s challenges, especially when I just want to knockdown walls and scrap off all the popcorn ceilings, ha. One of these is the kitchen backsplash or lack of. I looked into some options, like contact paper or temporary wall paper, but ultimately I wanted to make it a “gallery space”. My plan is to find more of the same size frames (of course from thifting) and fill them with vibrant artwork. This is what I have so far:

And an update from my last post. I added the leather hanger & painted over the name on the mailbox.

Not too shabby.
