HAPPY HOLIDAY SHOPPING!

With 3 women in my household you can only imagine how many beauty products we have passing between us. We are all loving Charcoal! Google it. It reduces toxins, whitens teeth and so much more. Here are 3 favorites:

Leopard print just does not go out of style! Our mother’s even had pieces back in the day. Just a touch here and there and you are stylin’!

When my girls went off to college they missed their cats. Recommended by a much admired friend, I had photos of our cats made into pillows. BEST. GIFT. EVER.

This chopper looks dorky and gimmicky but it’s not. Was gifted it and now I spread the chopper love. Instant Pots really do rock and who can resist a beautiful oven mitt?!

And now for the men in our lives…

I think this will be the gift of the season. They come in all shapes, sizes and prices. (I am not telling who I am giving this to!)

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

City Garden

I am pulling you out of the warehouse and away from our staged homes to take a walk through my garden.  Bring your cup of Jo and follow me...it is so small-it will only takes a minute!

Ever wonder why the fragrance of some flowers seems stronger at night? ** My lilies are now just opening and are incredibly fragrant. We like to bundle up late in the evening to take in the intoxicating scent. This small garden is full of surprises that add to its wonder. The containers of succulents were inspired by the Farm and Frills Junker Market where we found unusual vessels to plant in.  My pear tree yield's only 2-3 pears. I watch their progress daily as if they were my children. I can tell you which plants were shared with me from my Mother's garden, which plants came from friends and which were acquired at the coveted annual NW Flower and Garden Show. I constantly analyze the progress of this small space making mental notes of things I want to change, divide, dig out and remove forever. That's what gardening is all about. 

TIPS:

*When cutting lilies in your garden choose those with buds that are about to open.

*The orange pollen of lilies stain so snip off the stamens in the flower center. (I do this on those I cut to bring inside and any that are near a path or walkway).

FUN FACT

** The fragrance of flowers is enhanced at night in order to attract nocturnal pollinators such as moths and bats. Sometimes when watering in the morning, a flurry of moths will spring from the flowers.

 Okay, now get back to work and thank you for taking a moment to visit!

 

Create a look that says "Welcome!"

Whether you are selling your home or simply want a welcoming entry a simple planter filled with beauty is a must. It seems overwhelming when you get to the nursery so only focus on the need for 3 items in your planter. Simply click on each image and your planter is created!

 

1. Start with a large stylish planter

2. Fill with planting mix and slow release fertilizer

3. Remove the plant identity tags

4. Add 2 vibrant grasses

5. Add a shrub prized for its colorful foliage 

6. Finally your color spot. Stay with 1 color for greater impact

I love this combination because it is low maintenance and provides interest for months. Now get out there and tackle this rewarding task.
