Adding Green




I found my self highly inspired by Jennifer's fall post the other day. I have been wanting some fresh flowers, but haven't made my way to the store yet, so I thought I would take Jennifer's route on adding green to my home. On our nightly family walk I decided to bring along my clipping shears and collected some lovely foliage also known as pretty weeds for our home. I am rather pleased with the way it all turned out and love the free price tag even more.

And with my lack on knowledge in the plant department I would never know they were weeds. ;)

I love the subtleness of these additions. Sometimes big plants take over the rest of the decor :)

Very pretty! I am loving all the free weeds right now. But whenever I try to sneak them in the house, Eric's allergies always bust me.

Sara Mueller said...

Lovely! It looks wonderful.

Pretty, pretty. This has me wanting to head outside when I get home with some clippers.

Ha -- before I read down, I saw that top image and thought "I need to clip some weeds soon!" Love it.

It is amazing what some green can do for the house, isn't it? I brought my Christmas cactus inside yesterday and as little as it is, it's added a loveliness to my kitchen counter. :)

So pretty! Love the color of that top table! We are hoping to paint a console table soon and that would be perfect. If you painted it, what color did you use? Thanks!

Paula - I came on over to your blog after reading Sissy's post about that orange fabric - and I am so glad I did! I'll have to go back and read through your archives. You have a great sense of style, (and even love weeds!)
Best Wishes, Loretta
