Plant Drawers Inspiration

There’s something about vintage card catalog/apothecary drawers that I’ve always loved. Maybe it’s the many possibilities that the tiny drawers contain, or the association with books or magical potions, but somehow they grabbed my heart years ago, and they never let go. Add plants into the mix, and you’ve got a match made in heaven as far as I’m concerned.
card catalogs + plants = a match made in heaven

I did about 10 craigslist searches while I was writing this post, but there seems to be a shortage of vintage card catalog cabinets in my area. Maybe someday I’ll find one, but I’m working on a DIY version (coming soon!) to tide me over until then.

Weekend Inspiration

Weekend links

It’s been so hot here lately that this stock tank pool looks heavenly. Add one of these, or these hammocks and some frozen treats, and it sounds like the perfect summer backyard setup, doesn’t it?

What cute little DIY circle shelves. They look like they’d be great for plants.

Get your hair off your neck with a DIY hair stick barrette.

These vegan cinnamon rolls look amazing. (Don’t ever let anyone tell you that giving up animal products means no pastries or dessert.)

This pink record player is too adorable (and a great deal). I used the same one in white for my suitcase record player.

This Scandinavian-style garment rack is so stylish.

If you’re an unabashed plant lady like me (further proof from my monstera leaf earrings), this plant lady printable is a super cute way to own it!

I’m a big fan of these versatile sale sandals.

Cherry Lime Popsicles

I’ve been eating cherries like potato chips this summer. Once I start, it’s hard to stop. With the hot summer weather lately, though, I figured a frozen version would be refreshing, so I made a batch of these cherry lime popsicles. Did you ever have those Otter Pop frozen tube pops when you were a kid? These are the fresh, grown-up version of the cherry flavor. (Also, they’d be perfect for upcoming Fourth of July festivities!)

Get the taste of summer with these cherry lime popsicles, made with fresh cherries and lime juice.
