Nature in the home

20 Mar 2013






I bought these pretty anemones from our local greengrocers yesterday. It was Elizabeth that spotted them and wanted to pick a bunch out and of course Archie had to have some too. I love how he smells the flowers - sniffing out rather than in. They are now sitting on the shelves in our living room in some jars I had saved.

I also had a go at making this sign letter filled with little succulents. I had seen something similar on Pinterest from here and as I had a bag full of letters in my shed I thought I would give it a go. I think it would have looked better with a few different types of succulents and some different colours though! I also have a couple of massive letters which I have been waiting to do something with and I'm thinking they would make great planters for the garden.





Linking in with Lou of little green shed and her nature in the home series.

  9. How lovely to find anemones in you local shop. I adore them but you hardly ever see them for sale. I tried to grow some once, but it didn't work so well. Gorgeous displays. That succulent filled metal letter is inspired!

  15. The colours are beautiful - the red, pink and purple work so well together. Anenomes have to be one of my favourites, but I can never track them down. The succulents look great too (I am intrigued about why you had a bag of letters in your shed though!)x
