#UJB: hanging plants in my studio

 

This month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers topic was hanging plants. Two things came to mind about this — 80s era macrame, and kokedama. Most of the furniture in my apartment is from the 50s and 60s.

urban jungle3

Zsuzsi had known about Urban Jungle Bloggers before but I only met with the blog styling initiative at Amsterdam. It’s a wonderful monthly challenge that invites bloggers to submit posts of plants based on a given theme — October’s was “Plant Shelfie,” a theme which simultaneously combines my love of puns and plants…I just had to post.  [Read more…]
