How to Transplant a Cactus

This post contains affiliate links.

Have you noticed how popular cactus plants are lately?

I have one I purchased at Fred Meyer as a teeny-tiny little baby a couple of years ago and it is really flourishing in the sunshine in my bathroom window 😊, In fact, it's doing so good that I thought I'd get another one!

I transplanted my new cactus today from the plastic pot it comes in, into a larger clay pot and while I was at it I thought I'd share how to transplant cacti, it's much easier than you would think!

A Lazy Day Road Trip

On Saturday my BF and I decided to take a spontaneous little road trip and do a little exploring in Spokane, Washington which is about 2 hours from where we live.

It was so nice, I really needed to get away... it's nice sometimes to just go without a real plan you know?

Our first stop was a little town called Sprague, on the way to Spokane. My BF is into photography and he saw something that piqued his interest so we took the exit and explored a little.

This row of old trucks was so cool, we loved all the colors.

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

I found a few things over the weekend to share for this week's Treasure Trove Tuesday (you know I couldn't go a whole weekend without hitting the thrift shops)!

Some New Finds for My Bedroom

Do you remember when I shared my boho bedroom makeover?  It's a little bit moody, neutral in black and white, and full of unique boho goodness, go check it out if you didn't see it, I just love how it turned out!

Well, as you know... a room is never really done, is it?! I knew I would be adding to it as time goes on so today I want to show you a few new things I've added.

They are new to me but not new items... nope, true to form they are thrifted finds, some family keepsakes, and a really cool freebie!

Ephemera Packaging Ideas

This post contains affiliate links.

You may have heard me mention that I am planning to have an art section in one of my spaces at the antique mall for people who like to do altered art and paper crafts.

I've been collecting up every scrap and bit of this and that, every do-dad, and random pieces of brick-a-brack for this purpose. It's kind of fun digging through the bottoms of bins at thrift shops and boxes of junk at estate sales for those items that no one else wants.

You know the one's I'm talking about, items that do not hold much interest by themselves to the average person. But package them up together and you have fun art supplies!

The Perfect Boho Kitchen Accent - Vintage Colored Glassware

Remember last Treasure Trove Tuesday when I shared those awesome vintage amber glasses I found at Goodwill?

At the time I wondered if you'd see the beauty that I see...

...you know how sometimes when you share something you've purchased and you are over-the-moon-excited about it and the look you get back is less than enthusiastic?

I hope that's not the case between you and I but juuuusssstttt in case it is, let me share just why I think these are the perfect beginning to a beautiful bohemian kitchen and dining experience!

DIY Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

This post contains affiliate links.

It seems as if everywhere I look lately I keep seeing those beautiful plants with the adorably cute name, Fiddle Leaf Figs!

I see them in magazines, on my favorite blogs, and all over Pinterest. From what I've read they seem to be a little bit finicky and hard to keep alive and on top of that EXPENSIVE!

While most of my house plants are in good shape (except for the String of Pearls plant... R.I.P 😡 dear Pearl) they are plants that almost no one can kill (spider plant, philodendron, jade plant, cactus) you know, your basic house plants. So I'm not OK with dropping that kind of money for something that might not make it.

But I was browsing around Michael's craft store the other day when I came across a faux Fiddle Leaf Fig for about $8 on sale! At that point, I knew I could have the beautiful plant with the adorably cute name without the stress!

Make your own faux Fiddle Leaf Fig without the expense!

Thrift Shop Flip - Oversized Bulletin Board

This post contains affiliate links.

Hey there, how was your weekend?

Mine went by way to fast, as usual, I hate that... I have a list of things a mile long that I want to work on over the weekend but before you know it, it's over and time to go back to work. Boo!

I did work on a couple of projects, one is a chair that I'm experimenting with a little bit. It had a broken leg when I found it next to a garbage can. I thought I'd try and build a new leg for it. I have peeled back the upholstery (original upholstery that is in near perfect condition too!) and cut a new leg and attached it. Right now it is glued and clamped. I'm excited to see how it will turn out!

The other project is an oversized bulletin board for my new office space I'm working on!

The 5 Basic Elements of Boho Style

This post contains affiliate links.

I love the bohemian home decor style that is becoming so popular, it just feels right to me. It combines vintage and new, different styles such as country and mid-century modern, different eras from early 1900's to 1960's and beyond, and colors and textures with reckless abandon!

It is impulsive, natural and unconstrained, uninhibited and shameless... and I love that!

The dictionary definition of bohemian is a person (often a writer or artist) who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices. And when we apply that to home decor... well, it's just a beautiful thing and perfect for someone like me who loves all different decor styles and likes to change things up almost daily!

With the bohemian style, you can go all out in a maximalist fashion with every wall covered with eclectic art and collectibles, rich, dark colors, textures and patterns.

Or you can go more minimalist and neutral with rich textures and statement pieces.

Really, anything goes! And as my blog tagline states... it's your home, don't be afraid to color outside the lines!

I'm sure you've seen some beautiful bohemian homes, one of my favorites is Justina Blakeney's home, find her blog here: The Jungalow. But like me, maybe you're having a hard time figuring out how to get that look at times... it seems like it should be easy right?... just throw a bunch of shit you love together and voila!! Um no... at least not for me! If only!!

To be honest, I still haven't nailed the exact look I'm after so to help (both you and me), I did a little observing and studying (Pinterest style 😁) and I have put together a little guide of five basic elements every boho home has in common... these things can be incorporated in great volumes or small doses, to help get the boho vibe!
