Weekend Links 7/14/17

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

After a fast paced and wonderful week in Bellingham, I am home for the weekend. My family pupper, Bella the beagle, has been living in Bellingham with me as an emotional support animal. Let’s just say that she is quite pleased to be home, apartment living isn’t her thing. So this weekend we are going to enjoy our big yard, comfy couches, and endless amounts of food. In between all that we might check out a trail nearby and hit up the local farmers market. What are you up to this weekend? Let me know! Here are a few links from around the interwebs for your weekend…

But this would have cost a fair amount at a store like Anthropologie. So why buy it when you can make it for less and get to pick out the type of wood and plants. Continue reading

House Plants

 

I’ve always been a huge fan of house plants, but my parents have been more skeptical. But this week, thanks to a trip to home depot, they are now the proud parents of two house plants. (I think the NASA study about house plants, helped to convince them.) I was dying to get them a fiddle leaf fig, but they are early on in their house plant journey, so we started out relatively small. My brother and I actually ended up spending a half hour in the house plant section of home depot trying to pick out one plant. (I picked the snake plant within the first couple of minutes.) After much deliberation, we finally settled on a dieffenbachia hybrid, also known as a dumb cane. So if you want to make your trip to the store quick, I would recommend deciding what kind of plants you would like to get ahead of time. Continue reading
