The weekend gone was my first weekend home alone since returning from our travels and Rick starting back at work. It… sucked, to be honest.
I didn’t do anything useful. I rarely left the house, and when I did it was only for food. I napped, watched god knows what on the TV and only really functioned for the sake of Rigby. I did, however, spend a lot of time on Pinterest.
I think I mentioned that now the Wedding is over, we are focusing on ’sprucing’ up parts of the house. Unfortunately for my brain (but fortunately for the wallet) we’re not ready to start the purchasing of new furniture or painting walls yet, but I can’t help looking at ideas for things I CAN do now. After browsing at all of these creative, cute and easy projects, I noticed most of the pins I had opened included a succulent of some kind. So when I had the sudden urge to do something, ANYTHING (that wouldn’t take longer than 30minutes), I rolled with it and did what some people refer to as “gardening”.
I went outside, picked some bits to break off from our succulent plants, and re-potted one like this:
I partly liked this idea so much because besides being pretty, succulents don’t die easily. Easy to maintain plants are best for inside, or everywhere really, especially when your green thumb is more of an ‘over-watering-murdering-but-not-on-purpose-I-love-you-really-garden-thumb’… BUT I reallllllllly liked this idea because it’s a way of displaying some of your favourite items in ways you usually wouldn’t. The teacup + saucer I used was a Bridal Shower gift (so very sentimental). It’s an oversized set in a beautiful peach colour that helps the succulent colours stand out perfectly. I knew I wanted to keep the cup out on display and now I can without people wondering why I have an empty teacup on my buffet!
And that’s how Pinterest helped me start the first of many projects around our house, got me off the couch and stopped my boring weekend from being so boring.
