discovered: hanging planters


it’s no secret that I love plants. soon I’ll be making a long awaited for and very exciting move, and I’m hoping to create a kind of sunroom space, or at least decorate the front porch. some of these planters are kind of small for the traditional big bushy greenery that’s found on front porches, but I think several small ones would look cute mixed in with a big one or two.

p.s. in a way this is also an etsy éclat post, since all of these came from etsy. for things like planters it’s a better bet finding unique and/or modern designs handmade, rather than at home depot etc.




etsy éclat: note writing



what is it about a blank notebook that feels so inspiring? crisp white pages with nothing on them, the smell of new paper… I’m always reluctant to start a new notebook because I feel like I should have a “theme” to be justified in messing one up. in any case, here’s a little roundup of materials to use for thank-yous or just saying hello. or you can gift these items as a kit, and maybe you’ll get a thank-you note back made with your supplies!

the unofficial title of this post is “brilliant blue”, for obvious reasons. isn’t turquoise fabulous?!

these pictures of the new zealand coast will answer that question, in case there’s any dispute. they’re unabashedly gleaned from google images so click through for links.

these pictures remind me of light, with all their shades of white and gold reflecting one another. they are both delicate and sturdy, offering illumination, inspiration, physical support, and a comforting warm beverage. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with things you love, not for materialistic purposes, but for mental health, clarity, and happiness.

here are my four wants from etsy this week. with spring coming on I’ve been desperate to get more green living things in my home! this hanging planter is the best. the adorable little bunny was hand crafted by my best friend. it’s extra special because it’s one of the first things she’s hand sewn, but it’s still perfect! since I’ve been focusing on the art in my home lately, I’ve decided to do a grouping of photos and paintings of trees. this print would fit in nicely! and these gold and white bowls are the perfect thing to herald spring into the kitchen- they remind me of a sunny day.

etsy is an incredible place. I love being able to communicate directly with artists and I am routinely blown away by the beautiful things they make. needless to say there are a million things on my ‘like’ list but I’ve picked four to start with- one for the wall, one for furry babies, one that’s beauty related, and one for the kitchen. I have the utmost respect for these makers and the creative genius they’ve got! (listed left to right)
