Bring The Outdoors In:
Seeing all the trees and plants come to life this time of year makes me want to clip all the things, the bigger the better. I really brought the outdoors in this week and most of it was free!! My favorite kind of decor.
I love when the trees bloom, but they are short-lived and I wanted to capture that fleeting moment and make it stand out. We get busy and before we know it the blossoms are gone.
Well this year my family will remember when the trees bloomed because they were all over the house!!! I filled all of the vases I could find and I also kept the Zyrtec flowing. I had to take the ones out of the bathroom because the family was complaining of being poked in the eye by sharp sticks while brushing their teeth. Small price to pay! But I gave in.
I learned how to force these Redbud branches to bloom indoors. Read about it HERE
It was so exciting to see them blossom and about 2 weeks before the tree blossomed outside!! I don’t normally clip perfectly good branches but this year there was a limb hanging over the roof. After we trimmed it my husband said do you want to put these in the house? He really gets me!
Our Double Delight Nectarine also needed some shaping. I still haven’t fessed up and told my husband that I only planted it for it’s blooms and that’s why it’s fruit is so awful. Hehe.
I hope to leave this centerpiece all season and fill the bud vases with different flowers.
I smile every time I walk by them.
The other thing that makes me smile are these fairy lights and string lights. It’s like a garden party every evening. Just one more way to Bring The Outdoors In. I added them to this BRASS TERRARIUM and this little WHITE PLANTER mimics it shape and holds the battery pack. I hung these STRING LIGHTS on my screen divider. I love the shimmer they add at night, it makes an average evening just a little special. It kind of brings out the kid in you.
Don’t you love that weaving? I wanted pops of pink and this did the trick. It is from Angie’s Etsy shop THE DECOR ADOBE Her work is beautiful and I’m so proud to have one.
My gardening hat hanging on the coat rack is a welcome change from heavy jackets, umbrellas and scarves.
This pillow from Pottery Barn HERE was a gift from a dear friend and it has found it’s happy place right there…..See that gold hallway? That is next on the chopping block.
Keeping with Bringing the Outdoors In I wanted some pops of floral in my living room so I made a couple of faux pulldown charts with some floral prints that I just love. This was a wallpaper sample that I had sitting around.
This was a print that I couldn’t find a frame for. I like the whimsy of it framed like this and it brought a little spring to this corner. I will share the simple tutorial soon.
The local nursery had these ranunculus out front and I just couldn’t pass them up. I will enjoy their blooms indoors for a couple of weeks and then plant them in the yard.
I dressed up my open shelving with Silver Dollar Eucalyptus branches, one of my favorites. I loved how the silver leaves played off of my colored glass.
I rooted these crescent succulents by sticking them in the dirt, I still can’t believe that they are growing!!!
Don’t pinks and oranges make a dynamic combo. I found the pink and rust towels at World Market and thought they were just perfect in my bathroom. See them HERE
Speaking of pink. I think it is my new neutral and everyone should have a pink pom-pom rug!!
Thank you so much for visiting today…
