Sometimes I will get on a random home improvement kick. While I don’t really have anything huge left to do to my house, it is fun to make small changes from time to time. After Colleen did this post about cat friendly plants, I decided that maybe my little house needed some of them. So I bought two little ferns and a couple cheerful patterned pots from Homegoods to put them in. If I am being honest, the reason I bought two pots is that I couldn’t really remember the exact size of the larger fern. Luckily, I like it so much I decided to just go ahead and keep both. With adding these to the couple of other indoor plants I have, this is definitely the most plants I have ever had at one time. I must be feeling brave. Aside from that, I finally got around to repainting the trim around my front door left from when I painted my whole house last fall. It looks way better than the chipped up and dingy paint that was on it before. I am always amazed what fresh paint will do for something. Last but not least, I bought a full length mirror to hang on the empty wall in my bedroom and decided that it would be a perfect place to display some of the art and pictures from my trip last year. I am pretty excited to put it all together and I will be sure to share it with y’all when it is done.
A rabbit foot fern. This literally has these furry white protrusions that come from the roots that look like rabbit feet. I am trying really hard not to let myself get freaked out by them.
A lemon button fern.
My peppermint and the air plant that I have kept alive for over a year lookin good on my window sill.
Sooo much better.
And I found what I believe to be my perfect calligraphy desk at an antique mall the other day but I am being financially responsible so I did not buy it. I am pretty bummed. Financial responsibility is the worst. Maybe if it is still there in 6 months, I will get it.
I am still waiting for some frames and photographs but the mirror looks pretty good. I bought it from West Elm with a gift card. I like the simplicity of it and that it is an oval.
Also Juicy is the biggest camera ham. I struggle to take any pictures of my house without him butting into them.
I love the colors and the plants! The desk looks great. I just bought a 26″ antique desk ( pull down front with cubbies inside). Cleaned it with orange oil and it looks great. Check “Consignments on Park” ( next to Blacklion) for a desk. Also there is a back room can go in in blacklion that has repurposed things that they are working on- look in there.also waiting to hear from a neighbor if she wants Corey’s old desk for her daughter( home schooled), you are welcome to it if she doesn’t want it. I am sure you would want to paint it and change it.
Ok love the plants and the planters! Also, that cute little vintage-y water spritzer thing is the real deal. Looove it. AAAAnd I love your new mirror! And the fact that my lil crafty patty made an appearance 😉
I’ve been wondering about cat friendly plants! This is so great.
