Malanga Made Some Friends

26 Feb

Before we moved to Atlanta I had an idea to have little pots with herbs by our window in the living room. With the season changing I felt it was time to put that idea into effect.

Basil, Thai Basil, Oregano, and Cilantro.

It’s not raining as much as it did when we first moved here. A perfect place, full of light to grow herbs.

Oh! and meet our other new plant that Luis fell in love with.

I think it looks awesome in the corner.  I love how it helps accent the frames above.

I also picked up a little Calla Lily plant too, to help bring the feeling of spring into our little place.

Our little place is shaping up very nicely.

Looking at the pots, waiting for the seeds to start sprouting makes me miss the garden I had back home.  I wonder if I could grow tomatoes and green beans in a pot in my living room?

Feeling a little greener =)

Hearts Everywhere

9 Feb

With Valentine’s Day coming up and me being a huge fan of hearts, I decided to make paper hearts to decorate our little place.  Also, number one on my list of new goals for the year is to make or create more crafts.

I was able to finish up my hearts last night while Luis and Hoki studied.  This is what their side looked like…

And this was mine…

We all stayed up super late.  Poor Luis and Hoki didn’t get to bed until 5 a.m.

When I woke up in the morning the hearts looked very cute on our windows.

This is just the beginning.  I have more love to create and hang around the house. Until next time!

Hello Marigold, Gray, and Royal Blue

A Peak at our Living Room

Our living room set up so far.

(Click on a photo to enlarge)

It still needs a lot of work and some more inspiration. I have so many ideas but gotta wait for now.

Our inspiration is Georgia Tech; colors of yellow and blue with accents of grey. Even though the official school colors are yellow and white with some use of navy blue. Our version with a twist.

Bright, loud, and fun!

Yellow Side Table on Clearance $3.00, RE Collection from Target

These college years are probably the only time I can get away with decorating our place with colors like these and have Luis like it.  At least until real adulthood comes around with buying our own home and then decorate with a more mature modern chic color wheel.

Love being able to use our Tako (Octopus) stuffed animal from the Osaka Aquarium in Japan into the mix… heehee

or these little fall leaves window clings I picked up from Target for a buck!

Well, that’s it until we add more to our living room… see ya!
