As most of you know, I'm constantly rearranging the furniture and looking for new ways to spice up my living space. Lately, I've focused on letting go of things I don't love, don't need, or that don't fit in, no matter how practical they might be. I've found that this is the only way to create a consistent vibe in my home – also, its a good way to stay on the minimal end of the hoarding spectrum.
Creating a "look" or "feel" in the home doesn't come naturally for everyone, at least it didn't for me. But over these past two years of making a home for my party of two family, I've found my rhythm in a sense.
I'm immensely thankful for those of you who have given us so many of our belongs (I'm talkin to you Mama) and of course I couldn't have gotten anywhere without all the beloved thrift stores in my life. (From Oxnard to SLO – I've probably seen them all.)
Practically none of our stuff was bought full price, new, or even purchased at all for that matter. This has made building a home so easy and fun! And has kept our bank account in-tact. With that said, I'm entering into a stage in my life where I'm ready to invest a little bit. I've figured out my style (kind of) and I'm confident that the choices I make now, will carry over into the future (I hope). Haha it's still hard for me to jump into the "investing" stage.
Anyway, blah blah blah, I could talk for hours about treasure hunting, materials I specifically look for at thrift stores now, what's worth buying new, and what isn't – but I'll leave that for another day.
Today I want to point out one home item that everyone should invest in. MACRAME PLANT HANGERS! They are such a perfect fit for any home. #1 they help you add plant life #2 they create high-low levels #3 they're beautiful and handmade and you need one.
My good friend Ruby of Native Fern has got you covered in this prospect. She handmakes beautifully, simply macrame plant hangers and now, wall hangings too. For a steal of a price. You really need to go check these beauties out.
Don't have plants to put in them? The Home Depot Nursery solves that problem. They have a great (and affordable) assortment of small cacti and succulents.
This will be an easy investment. Trust me!
