Austin and I decided that this summer we needed a garden - he has quite the green thumb and I was enchanted by the thought of my very own secret garden. Now granted, in reality, the secret garden is actually some potted plants on our tiny concrete balcony, but nonetheless a garden!
It’s easy to be inspired by the beauty and complexity of plants. The colors, shapes, smells, and textures are endlessly fascinating. Just check out these deep pink lovelies (which I admit to having forgotten the name of):
Wouldn’t that color translate into a stunning pair of earrings? We’re also trying our hand at some edibles. Don’t these little tomatoes look like they’re enjoying the sun?
And of course, our kitty, Cora, wishes she could get closer to
admire eat some aromatic herbs. This little lavender plant was nothing but a few twigs when we first got it!
So many things can be enhanced with the calming scent of a little dried lavender - homemade soaps, candles, even small sachets filled with lavender, placed in your drawers can make clothes smell fresher. (Keep your eye out for a tutorial!)
Have you ever made a project inspired by something in nature?
