Inspiration, Monday's Pretty Things

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: Green, green, green (plants)

If you follow Oaxcaborn on Instagram, you know about our succulent planting adventures (see below photo) so it’s no surprise that this week’s Monday’s Pretty Things is all about greenery! This was inspired by a couple of things — one, the incredible Urban Jungle Bloggers project, and two, the fascinating conversation here about the challenge of spending time outdoors if you, like many people, are an apartment dweller. (Most people don’t actually live on a rambling ranch!)

Hopefully these Pretty Things — and the #UrbanJungleBloggers Pinterest board — will inspire you to create your own green oasis no matter where you live.

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: 6 Examples of Foliage Indoors

Cut flowers or branches, a little houseplant on the edge of the sink, herbs in the kitchen — these little touches really brighten a room, don’t they? I have a few potted flowers in ceramic pots on the stoop outside our front door, but nothing inside right now. I should change that!
