Last weekend, I decided I wanted to liven up my home with a few (or maybe 11) houseplants. However, when I got home to distribute my new plants, I quickly realized I had gone overboard. I just didn’t have the space for all my leafy spoils. But with this adorable mini indoor greenhouse, several similar plants can be grouped together, and they look right at home. It looks like it’s time for a trip to IKEA!
Aren’t these pillows just fantastic? I love how simple and natural botanical throw pillows can be, yet they still pack a heavy stylistic punch. I’ve been searching for the perfect pillow combination for my couch, and these earthy cushions might be just the thing. But which ones should I choose?

Just put in frozen bananas or other frozen fruits, and it makes fresh, sweet soft serve. And it’s actually good for you!

The heat is up, the schools are out, and I am so ready for a trip to the beach. Unfortunately, my vacation is still weeks away. At least I can pretend I’m on an island getaway with this unique coastal driftwood spoon set. Maybe I was inspired by Allie’s Driftwood Crafts, but there is something about these spoons that I just adore.

Have you ever thought, “I sure would love to have a hammock,” only to look around your yard and notice the lack of trees. I experience that most days. Then I consider putting a hammock on the back deck. But, of course, with no trees, there’s no shade, and that’s no good. This handy-dandy canopy hammock is stylish and practical for the treeless hammock lover. Plus, it’d be an attractive addition to any yard.
These light bulb vases are one of the more perfect decorations I’ve seen in a while. They would look absolutely phenomenal hanging in my kitchen window. I can already picture myself frolicking through the field and picking fresh wildflowers – or at least snipping a few buds from my front yard. Either way, I have no doubt these bulbs will find their way to my home.
It’s the year of the octopus, and I am fully on board. Octopus decor has become a bit of an obsession of mine. And why not? There is always one animal print that can be found on everything from doorknobs to dinnerware, and I’m glad it’s finally the octopus. I’m big on animal prints in general, but it’s time to give the birds a rest and let the octopus do its thing (and that thing is being one of the coolest creatures of the sea).

I’ll just go ahead and admit it, when I saw these snail shell candles, I was a little grossed out. Then I took a minute to process the idea, and now my tune has changed. I love these little guys! The shells are natural and beautiful, and the candles come in four delightful scents.
What do you think? Are these eco-friendly candles haute or horrid?
Are there any other tea lovers out there? What about Beatles fans? This cute little gadget combines my love for both! About a year ago, I switched out my morning coffee for green tea. It was tough at first, but now I always look forward to my first cup of tea in the morning. I prefer loose leaf tea but almost always use bags. Frankly, it’s because I’m lazy and don’t want to deal with measuring. But this Yellow Submarine Tea Infuser strainer is so fun and adorable! I think it’s time to make the switch.
