I bought a thing. I did a thing.

As a plant seller on FB Marketplace, I have not been much of a buyer until recently. I have picked up a couple of cool things during Quarantine. Inexpensive items but nice additions for our home. The added bonus: thrifting is better for the environment! I saw this cute round table for $25. Low investment... Continue Reading →

Cebu Blue

Please don’t tell the others, but this Cebu Blue ((might be my favorite houseplant.)) I try to keep it low key, but I think the others know. The leaves on a Cebu are so magically blueish silveryish. I just love it! I bought this one from a local seller as a little rooted baby and... Continue Reading →

Happy Hydrangea

Last week I bought my first hydrangea (Nikko Blue).This week I bought all new sheets and rearranged a bedroom just because of the amazing blooms.I’m doomed. Let the hydrangea addiction begin! I even hung one to experiment with drying them... There are worse addictions, right??? (Famous last words!) Do you grow hydrangea? If so, what kind and... Continue Reading →

Patio, Pups and Projects

Our neighbor had an intrusive tree removed last year that made a lot of sense for her. Cleared up her backyard nicely. But this spring I'm noticing how MUCH more sun we are getting on our back patio (and we got a lot to begin with.) The hardest adjustment to California from the Midwest has... Continue Reading →

These Are Puzzling Times…

I am not a jigsaw puzzle doer. Oh sure - I've paused at the table a few moments to work out a piece or two when someone else was doing one nearby, but I know my patience level and I know it doesn't have the endurance for a tedious project like puzzle hobbying. But quarantine... Continue Reading →

Welcome!

Our home project this week was to tackle our home's entryway. I struggled all last year to figure out what would work best in our 'entry room'. The front porch is a covered area that has been challenging to decide between plants or furniture. Plus there is a fairly wide 'wall' that was screaming for... Continue Reading →

Big Monstera Tip/Advice

Basically, do this before it gets too late and you end up like me. (Sounds ominous, doesn't it??) A quick backstory... Our monstera deliciosa was large when we lived in Kansas City. When we moved to California, we knew it couldn't make the trip in our car so I cut a number of stems from... Continue Reading →

Terra Cotta Dreamin’

Possibly it's due to the overexposed sun here in California that has led me to fall in love with a very California, desert-color scheme. Earth tones: Greens. Grays. Terra cotta. Cinnamon. Mustard. Mauve. Teals. Blues Soothing. Grounding. Natural. Imagine looking at a desert scene. Starting at the ground level with it's bluish-gray sage mixed with... Continue Reading →

Presidents’ Day Cabinet

I don't know about the President's rotating cabinet, but I am so so so in love with my new China cabinet. Have I mentioned my extreme love for Facebook Marketplace?! I have found so many treasures on that site - and am learning to be patient and wait for the good stuff. A few days... Continue Reading →
