Okay, here’s one last cactus DIY before summer comes to a close. As if we could ever get enough! Summer is the perfect time for busting out all things cactus and pineapples! What better time for adding some extra pep to your living space?!


Speaking of living spaces, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you probably saw some behind the scenes shots of our house hunt. Full update, we’re still house hunting. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that the perfect mid-century modern home comes up for us soon!


I love the idea that by just adding a few touches to your space here and there, you can really brighten up a room and feel inspired every day! I made this for Claire’s nursery and thought it was so much fun. Of course, the minute Charlie laid eyes on it, he asked for one too! ;) I agree that it’s the perfect piece to liven up any blank wall space, and it’s a great way to add a personal touch to any room.
