Many, many planty friends have withered and died under my lack of care, so this is one hipster trend I haven't been able to follow... until now (I'm told that succulents are hard to kill - but in my experience, they, along with all other plants, are hard not to kill). I have searched and I have found an alternative to the humble indoor pot plant. Yeah, this just got real.
I have also been coveting those geometric glassy terrarium thingys for a long time. What is it with those? And why do I love them so much? Am I so impressionable? As in other situations where I find myself doting on something that I probably wouldn't have noticed before, I am perfectly willing to blame those girls over at A Beautiful Mess. It's always them. Actually, I did actually buy one of these terrarium thingys, but I have this sinking feeling that after traveling from the states it may arrive in a less than whole form. Will have to wait and see...
Anyway, this project was largely inspired by these cool prints that were floating around on Pinterest quite awhile back. I used an off-cut from one of my dad's carvings, and some paint test posts I scored for free. So this is one of the cheapest projects ever. In that it cost nothing. I do like the Quill and Fox prints a lot more (also, some of these other interpretations are very cool), but despite the naivety of my own painting, I kinda just love having some ironic hipster art in my kitchen.
A bit silly. A bit fun.
