Genuinely Cool Stuff 5.31.16

Hello friends! I hope that everyone had the most amazing three day weekend and enjoyed a little sunshine and some good memories. I have to admit I spent most of the weekend hustlin’ – I have some really big, exciting things coming soon that I cannot wait to share with you guys! But yes, my weekend was filled up with a matinee movie, volunteering, drinks with friends, picnics and of course the boring stuff (IT support, spring cleaning and running errands). It also left me with plenty of time to hunt down the best tidbits of information from around the web this week! This week’s genuinely cool stuff posts bring us: instruction on how to keep your houseplants alive, a super sweet, spring-inspired D.I.Y. and tips for a welcoming and functional guest bedroom!

Enjoy! xx

    I would love to create that floral monogram! I recently planted several different flower types around our country home and I'm patiently waiting for everything to bloom. Once it does, I'm going to start experimenting with some flower arrangement tutorials. 🙂

    It has always fascinated me, but I've never actually taken the formal time to learn the art of it.

    Also, that's such a good way to freeze herbs!! I generally put them in water and then when the cubes are frozen I pop them out and place everything in a ziplock.

      Oh my goodness Nataliya that sounds like a fairytale! I cannot wait until we buy a new home with a garden for flowers as well as an herb garden! One can only dream 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
