This weekend me and beau spent some time in his home town for his cousin’s wedding. He is from a small little town, right outside of Little Rock, AR, called Keo. It is a quaint little town known for great antiques and awesome pies! Seeing as I love everything vintage, I love visiting. Everything from main street to the fire truck have a vintage flair! The wedding was (more…)
Crates + Succulents = a cute little front porch garden! If I had my way and unlimited funds, I would have a vegetable garden, raised gardens, and tons of flowers everywhere, but I have to work with what I’ve got. In my opinion, flowers can make even the most boring looking bungalow look amazing. Good thing my boyfriend’s mother has gifted me with so many amazing vintage crates and tins, that have an unlimited amount of uses.
One of my favorite things to do on a sunny day off with my man, (besides go to the beach) is work on our little yard. It is slowly getting better with each little touch we add to it. So this past weekend, I used one of those awesome crates to create a little succulent garden for the front porch. I just lined the crate with trash bags, filled it with potting soil and planted two succulents per section. Now for a newbie gardener, such as myself, succulents happen to be the perfect plant to make me look like I know what I am doing. Mainly, because if someone forgets to water them occasionally, they won’t wither and die! Here’s to the underachiever of the plant world, my new best friend!
I thought I would throw up a little wish list for Mother’s Day, which is just around the corner for all you procrastinators! I talk to my mama about three times a day and couldn’t ask for a better friend and therapist. She is one of the most positive people I know and she always tries to see the good in everyone and every situation. If I could I would get my mother everything she has ever wanted, but alas, I’m not made of money (not even close). So, I put together some items I think she would really like. I don’t live in the same state as her, so hopefully, sending her a fun little package in the mail will be a close second to seeing her on Mother’s Day!
Most of these fun items I found on Etsy! Fun burlap pillows and wine scented candles. Everyone should have at least one wine scented candle as far as I am concerned. I also found some great Mother’s Day cards and some fun IPhone cases! Hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day with your mama, grandmother, friend, or whoever you happen to be celebrating it with!
Owing my own business, I am constantly trying to come up with cute and creative ways to package my merchandise. I have always been a fan of cute paper products and believe that how you package your items is just as important as the items themselves. I have to say that colorful twine and craft paper are my go to products for packaging, (see my gift wrapping here) , but that doesn’t mean that I am not open to new ideas! So, I was trolling Pinterest the other day and found some great ideas that I will definitively be trying, in the not so distance future. Nothing beats getting a fun little package in the mail, especially if they look like some of the packages below, can’t wait to try them out!
