Our first place was seriously lacking character and warmth. Even when we brought in furtniture and window treatments, it still felt so bare! Enter my first houseplant. A little Christmas Cacuts! I loved having it and quickly added more. Now, in our house, we have a bit of a jungle going on.
They’re all thriving here! Plants are a great alternative to fresh cut flowers, because they last so much longer which, in turn, costs less. You know I love that.
Flowers: A simple way to add life and richness to a room
Whether you’re hosting a brunch or just want a nice welcome home each day, having a couple arrangements around can really breathe life into your home and make it feel more elevated. You don’t have to spend a lot to have a beautiful effect. Some of the simplest arrangements are the most beautiful.
It was in the first week of living here, that my husband, who, for the remainder of this post will be referred to as ‘Farmer Greg’, worked up his plans for our soon-to-be-huge-and-amazing vegetable garden. He was really pushing for it to be about double its current size (20′ x 20′) but in the end, came to his senses. We came up with our long list of produce we wanted to grow and he mapped it all out! Picking a spot to put the garden was our next challenge. Our house sits on 2.5 acres, but only about half of that is level. There is one spot in the yard that only sees about an hour of shade each day, which we saw as ideal to plant some veggies!
