succulent love {and giveaway winner}!

Until recently, I had never really been into greenery or tried my hand at gardening. Our first apartment lacked outdoor areas and I was hesitant to cram plants in the studio for fear of snagging precious space.  Now settled in our new home, we are lucky enough to have a substantial back patio, front porch and even a bay window […]

This weekend was a wet one in Southern CA. Most people aren’t fans of the rain, but I’m practically it’s best friend. My parents tell me it rained the day they brought me home from the hospital as a baby, it rained on my 21st birthday, and it rained at the very end of our […]

You can use white bowls or tea cups for vases, too! fromme-toyou.tumblr.com This arrangement speaks to the hearts of vintage-lovers and antiquers everywhere. Would be darling in a country or cabin setting. Love the bright glassware! flickr.com […]
