DIY Modern Cement Planter

I always think about what I would pay for something I could make on my own. In the case of these cement planters? More than I even care to admit to myself.

Happy Weekend (from Seattle)

PHOTO: Steve Shook

By the time you’re reading this I’ll be Seattle-bound for a little event I’ve been invited to attend. I’ve never been to the PNW before and am incredibly stoked. Not only to get to do a few awesome things I’d never be able to do otherwise, but also to meet up with some bloggers and my BFF from junior high during the two days I’ll be in town. This girl’s got a good life. On that note, I’m leaving you with an extremely fantastic/extended list of links you’ll want to be sure and click on.

01/  cute summer succulent garden you can mimic
02/  DIY wrap bracelets

MatchCarden

 

Wouldn’t you love to open your mailbox to one of these sweet MatchCardens after a bad day? I’d set my tiny garden on the windowsill above my kitchen sink and promptly order five more. (via Colossal)

DIY Fire Extinguisher Vase from Wit & Whistle

 

This past Sunday I went to a bridal shower for a good friend, her mom used to be a florist and blooms were everywhere. As I was leaving they handed me a vase that had been on one of the tables to take home. I never realize just how much I love having fresh flowers in my house until they’re actually there. Then the entire space feels lighter and brighter, and I’m happier.

My vase collection consists mainly of the glass variety, in all shapes and colors. My favorite is a clear short one that says You are my sunshine on the side. I think I paid three dollars for it in college. I love the beauties sitting up top there.

Kelly Lamb Planters

Geodesic shapes are kind of a big deal right now, popping up everywhere from hotel pods to fashion runways. I’m especially fond of Kelly Lamb’s contribution, these concrete finish planters.

Grow Bottles


Grow Bottles are upcycled planting kits composed completely of sourced and re-purposed materials. The containers are made from cut reclaimed wine bottles, half of which is inverted, and come with organic seeds. Choose from basil, chives, mint, parsley, and oregano. {via The Dieline}

Square Containers 1.0

I like the idea of having a container garden, something not quite as permanent and less traditional. A whole mess of these Square Containers 1.0 from BILT Products would do nicely. They’re made of 12 gauge steel and range in size from 3″ square to 12″ square. Eventually, over time, the edges will rust giving them even more character. {via Simone LaBlanc Inc.}
