Seed Money

Seed Money-1-Design Crush

PHOTOS: Notcot

Seed Money is definitely one of those things I wish I’d thought of first – it looks like the real thing (right down to the roll!) and grows colorful flowers and vegetables once tucked into the soil! It’s hand-illustrated and letterpress printed onto thick paper that’s embedded with the seeds. How fun would it be to leave a few in different places for unsuspecting people to find?!

Macrame Plant Hangers

PHOTO: Heather Moore

I think I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in a row house. That didn’t leave a lot of room for a garden or the plants that my mom wanted around, so she relied on a few macrame plant hangers in front of our living room windows. I wish I could say that these are some revved up modern versions, but they’re not. They’re exactly the same and that’s just what I love. In fact, I think I’m going to make a few for my own living room windows.

By the time you’re reading this I’ll be Seattle-bound for a little event I’ve been invited to attend. I’ve never been to the PNW before and am incredibly stoked. Not only to get to do a few awesome things I’d never be able to do otherwise, but also to meet up with some bloggers and my BFF from junior high during the two days I’ll be in town. This girl’s got a good life. On that note, I’m leaving you with an extremely fantastic/extended list of links you’ll want to be sure and click on.

DIY Fire Extinguisher Vase from Wit & Whistle

 

This past Sunday I went to a bridal shower for a good friend, her mom used to be a florist and blooms were everywhere. As I was leaving they handed me a vase that had been on one of the tables to take home. I never realize just how much I love having fresh flowers in my house until they’re actually there. Then the entire space feels lighter and brighter, and I’m happier.

My vase collection consists mainly of the glass variety, in all shapes and colors. My favorite is a clear short one that says You are my sunshine on the side. I think I paid three dollars for it in college. I love the beauties sitting up top there.
