Weekend Inspiration

gold leaf
Happy Friday! I got to make the prettiest mess this week with gold leaf, which is always fun. And it’s been an extra-rainy spring in Portland this year, but now it’s starting to pay off in flowers, hooray! Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. Here are some ideas to help inspire you.

Speaking of flowers, edible flowers can make any dish prettier. Here are ten flowers that you can grow and eat.

This week I shared the two hanging planters I made over with paint and gold leaf, but I actually have another, and I’m considering giving it some colorful¬†paint drips.

If you don’t have outdoor space for a garden, here’s a neat way to make an indoor hanging window garden.

Like pretty much everyone, I’ve been listening to S-Town lately. I only have one episode to go, and like the best books, I’m desperate to get to the end to find out what happens, but I’ll be sad when it’s over. Have you listened to it?

Totally getting the itch to make a DIY letter board.

Last night I had to get up at 3:30 am to stop our heater from making loud banging noises (we have someone coming to hopefully fix it next week), so home repair is on my mind. This list of home maintenance tips is a good one.

Warning: These photos may make you want to paint your house in pastels. (Can’t believe they skipped blue, though.) Would you take the pastel paint plunge?
