I’ve started decorating for Spring and Summer by brightening up my rooms a little at a time. You’d be surprised what a little color can do for your decor.

I love plants and love that they are functional decorations. They are bright, beautiful and purify the air. Ones that are easy to take care of are especially my favorite like beautiful cacti. They don’t require a lot of water, you can just place them in the sun and if you forget to water them for a couple days, they’ll be fine.

Now you can buy them already in cute pots but I love a personal touch on things like this. Terra cotta pots are blank canvases for artists like myself or anyone for that matter. You can paint them, decorate them or decoupage them with some Mod Podge and a cute handkerchief like mine.
