Ok now that the condo is painted. I need some throw pillows!
I’ve been scouting for the right colours and have a few potentials. Not sure which way I want to go though. Here are a few options from Etsy. This pillow is totally Toronto but also gives me the travel bug!
This pillow is great but I am not sure if the colour is quite right.
Or perhaps something a littler nerdier?
the geranium I couldn’t part with last fall survived a winter indoors despite dry heat and feline interference.
In fact it has flourished. I have put it on a shelf on our condo balcony to hide the air conditioner pipes and dryer vent. Let’s see if we can get a third year out of it!
Spring is finally here in full swing.
The temperatures are still a bit cool but it was enough to pull out all of my pots for this year’s balcony garden.
And let this be known that this is the last photo I will ever take of that awful old barbecue. It has now moved on to new pastures. Well the dump anyway.
After all the talk of vertical gardens and vegetables, I am going to do things a bit more simply this year. All flowers, a few herbs and one pepper plant.
Well I wasn’t going to do much balcony gardening this year but after Canada Blooms I found something to re-inspire my green balcony thumb.
This vertical garden is a cost-effective space saver by the looks of it. It gets shipped to you and with a little assembly, some soil and some plants you are on your way!
I think this is a good alternative to the many pots and containers that usually fill our balcony. They have a chicken coop too but that may be a bit over the top…
Looking for some new lighting ideas?
I’ve been meaning to shop for new throw pillows for the living room but my current ones are generally occupied.
I guess there doesn’t make a lot of sense to buy anything too expensive, hard to care for or anything I won’t mind getting furry.
It’s important not to wear black at our house…
We have installed our tiny Christmas tree here at the condo.
It is a dwarf Alberta spruce in a pot which we will hopefully tend when the holidays are over and then plant in the spring.
In the meantime it just fits nicely in our little living room.
I have always lived in homes full of plants and am always amazed to see a house with nothing green to be seen.
I found this infographic to inspire those of you who have no plants to think about it. Even a silk plant might make a difference and your cats won’t likely eat a fake plant.
