I've been in my new digs for a a little over three weeks now. When I first got here, my nesting instincts began to kick in, and I knew that my first order of business would be brightening up my front entrance with some greenery and flowers. I bought a few chrysanthemums, a lemon verbena plant and a pretty succulent at my local garden store Wentworth Greenhouses - and terra cotta pots to re-pot everything.
My Pinterest perusing had given me a few ideas to dress up my terra cotta pots. I liked the look of these Colorblock Terra Cotta Pots via A Beautiful Mess, but felt overwhelmed by color choices, since I wanted the mums to really shine. Then I came across these white and gold painted pots via Lovely Indeed, and thought, "A-ha!" These were closer to what I was looking for...but I thought the white paint would cause the pots to disappear next to the white siding of the house.
My creative brain train took a turn and dug deep.
I remembered seeing some stationary some years ago at Artstream that featured delicate metallic designs on brown kraft paper. Susan, from Artstream, was kind enough to jog my memory, and informed me that this stationary was designed by Oh Joy. I remembered loving the look of the fancy schmancy metallic design in contrast with the plain Jane kraft paper.
All of that, led to this!
I'm all about the hexie trend.
I've been dying for these beauties to bloom for weeks, so I that I could share here on Geek+Nerd. I think my little planting project brightened up the door way considerably - don't you?! (P.S. I made the hangers as well, using this video tutorial from Lovely Indeed, and used Martha Stewart metallic finish craft paints).
