With the day turning grey and a high of -4f forecasted for today (-30 to -40 with the windchill...what?), I decided to thumb my nose a bit at ma nature and bring a little green into my day.
My friend Karen, who is remarkably talented, sent me this awesome crocheted jute and antler pouch for Christmas. Jute and antler? You know how much I love this, right?
I had planned to (and might still) use this as a purse but I couldn't resist having it out where I can see it every day.
I snatched a few succulents from their pots and fashioned a liner out of plastic bags. I filled the bottom of the bag with charcoal and styrofoam peanuts (those awful ones that don't degrade...lighter than pebbles), and then filled it up with potting soil. In went the plants and just like that I had greenery hanging on my wall.
Isn't it lovely?
It really has brightened my day.
Now if we can just do something about warming it up.
Extra cocoa for everyone! Stay warm out there.
