I would say that things I make are largely influenced by nature. One of the joys I have found in home ownership has been gardening. Luckily I have a good amount of friends and family that share great plants with me, beyond that I often visit our local nursery. I am so please that we have joined forces in making a few hosta leaf inspired items that they have put on display for sale there. See the process of these fun hosta wall vases through “photo” – synthesis…
I found so many great things as I was dropping off my merch this am. Including this “chocolate mint” above. Why have I never seen this before? I have spearmint and peppermint but chocolate mint! I need to find a sunny little spot outside for my new herb. I took so many great pics, I think I could live in a green house.
I also picked up some plants for my hanging baskets even though it is too cold to put them out yet. I know how quick they go after mother’s day. I may be a little addicted to sweet potato vines in my hanging baskets so I was encouraged to branch out a bit…. look at the spiky purple alternanthera – burgundy thread, I love how they look together and I hope it trails. I was wondering what to keep them in until I made quick stop at a yard sale and found this copper planter for $1! The patina on the inside is gorgeous.
Hope everyone has a great mother’s day and a wonderful weekend.
