Hand Dyed Indigo Napkins – Making it

Spring this year came a little sooner than usual. Then it kind of waved us goodbye again and the temperature dropped. But now, it is officially Spring and that gets us thinking about outside dining, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. I have been wanting to hand dye a couple of home items for quite some time. From placemats, to throw quilts or pillow cases. So, the other day I wore my plastic blue gloves and finally did it. Making hand dyed indigo napkins is a fun way to add more pattern and color to the table setting making the next mealtime a little extra special.

Plant Arrangement Ideas

Did you find time to do some gardening last weekend? Did you prune some of your outdoor shrubs? Did you bring any greenery inside your house? Well, here is an idea for your next plant arrangement.

Gardening to me is like therapy. Well, I have never been to therapy before, but I promise you, it is just like it. The key to a happy gardening therapy session is to choose the right time of the day and to keep the session short. Last week, after pruning some evergreens, I decided to bring some of that evergreen inside the house. So I clipped away and then selected a few beautiful branches to display in two vases.

plant arrangement ideas

When putting a plant arrangement together, I like to combine two different shrubs in one single vase (preferably a large one), or display two complementing vases side by side with the two different shrubs to create a more interesting visual impact. I like to play with height and width, and I usually end up with a high arrangement next to a shorter and chubby one. It always seems like that is the best visually balance pair.

There is no need to buy anything to complete a project like this. If you want to dust off those gardening gloves, just use what you have around the house. If you don’t have pretty vases laying around the house, a 2 liter bottle of soda cut in half would be a great start. Clip what you have in the garden and start making your own arrangements. It’s so easy! And your house gets an instant touch of fresh greenery.

How to make a dramatic change with a graphic basket

How does caring for a dying fiddle leaf fig plant turned into a DIY graphic basket project? Well, I have been struggling to keep my two fig plants alive for the past 5 months. They used to be so full and so green. But slowly, they are losing lots of leafs. After changing how regularly I water them and adding fertilizer, I decided that I had to find another spot for them in the house. Once I moved them around, I immediately found myself a new house project. Right next to one of the pots, this old brass-colored basket was looking so shy. That big vase was just too much for that old basket. The basket looked naked, or just not charming enough. I have been seeing some gorgeous graphic baskets from Serena and Lily. So I thought that it would be fun to try and mimic the look of these adorable storage baskets. With the project in my mind, I searched the house for materials. I found some tape in the garage and some leftover paint. All I was missing was black spray paint. I quickly stopped by my parents house to steal their black spray paint I had purchased for another project and 10 minutes later, I had all the materials I needed and I could claim this was a cost FREE project.

Graphic Basket

This was a pretty easy little project. First, I covered the basket with black paint. I left it to dry for two days since I was going to be using tape over the freshly painted black paint. After two days, I taped my design, painted it white (with a hint of silver), and voila! It was all done.
