operation green thumb

Our duplex is deprived of greenery and I’ve really been in the mood to make my home more “home-y” lately. Do you ever get in those spurts? You’re fine, fine, fine and then all of a sudden you look around and think, I must clean! Let’s sweep! I should hang something on the wall there! Where’s all the greenery!?

I feel like this must be a direct result of working from home and being here all. day. long.

Sometimes I skip lunch workouts just to clean the bathroom, do laundry, and wipe kitchen counters. These things just get to me these days.

So to make things a little happier around the homestead, I bought two new pillows during West Elm’s sale (which was honestly not much of a sale, but I used it as an excuse to purchase overpriced fabric and fluff) and scavenged Lowe’s for their finest low maintenance greenery!

Here are the results. Of course, I totally stole the idea to use old candle holders and rocks and twine from The Great Pinterest. No originality here!

The baby palm tree might be my favorite. Here’s to hoping I don’t murder these so-called “indestructible” plants.

and so it goes,
