I can't wait to make one of these book planters... for EVERYONE I know. Such a brilliant idea! Wouldn't these look lovely as a table centerpiece as well? LOVE. Full instructions found HERE.
Love these sweet tips (& photos) from the blog A Beautiful Mess! As I'm notorious for having a black thumb, so I highly recommend visiting her blog to read up on how to take care of various types of household plants :) Check out the entire post HERE!

Guess who's excited to have her very own outdoor patio? That's right... me! I'm moving into my new place next month- and believe it or not, I'm just as thrilled about the outdoor space as I am the inside! When I saw all these great outdoor Summer pieces from Terrain, I knew I had to share...
Although some of us may live in concrete jungles or small spaces- doesn't mean we're not interested in growing our own healthy foods! I've always wanted to start my own garden, but never thought it possible living in my little LA apartment. That's why when I stumbled on Fire Escape Farms, I was thrilled! They have a myriad of gardening products for those of us who don't want to take our green thumbs for granted- even if we're working with some... space-impediment issues *ehem. Take a look at some of my favorite patio garden options i've collected from their site!
I've fallen in love with the blog Belle Fleur De Lis. It's follows a 23 year old Belgian girl's life- capturing her love of photography, plants, and all the small pleasure that bring joy to her life. The plants she's gown in her little patio garden are so beautiful. Ugh, if only I didn't have such a brown thumb I would love to do something like this myself! She's opening a shop in January 2011- selling her pretty plant holders.
It's FRIDAY! Plans for the weekend: pick up my Oraganic Veggie Box, hit up the FYF Fest, help the BF finish up putting together his new place with some possible thrifting, a BBQ with friends on Labor Day... and suprisingly- I think I may have some down time in between! Nice. That means I have time for this- a little project I found on the blog Epherriall Designs... it's this great little DIY Succulent Teacup window garden. This will be perfect for my office- which at the moment has absolutely no plants in it, one large concrete wall, and a view of a Circle K across the street. What can I say? It's pretty amazing. But, I think it could use a little decor- and this idea sure will freshen up the space. The great thing is, it's very inexpensive and easy to do. Succulents are about a $1.00 each at your local garden store (or you can even try the 99¢ Store, they have them there on occassion) and cool vintage tea cups are super easy to find at Thrift Stores. So here it is guys, the simple succulent tea cup garden... Have a great weekend!
