E wanted a real Christmas tree this year so we brought one home this week. It makes the house smell so wonderful I think it might be our new standard. I decided to keep it simple and only add a few clear ornaments, which I already had, and decorate it with hand-cut white paper snowflakes. I cut a few new ones each night so by the 25th, we should be having a White Christmas even though we’re in Florida. 😉
I had to share with you our newest listing, this industrial “Christmas Green” side chair. So retro, I just love it!

Have you been noticing these sweet little air plants everywhere lately? I love the new trend! Well, I shouldn’t say new because they’ve been growing in popularity for several years now. I used to just see them around Etsy and local farmer’s markets but it seems that they’ve officially made it into mainstream consumerism. Last weekend I purchased this little guy at my local nursery, Apenberry’s and this morning I saw a whole gang of them at West Elm.
I love their versatility. They don’t need to be planted in soil so they can literally sit anywhere and in anything! (Like a great big conch shell or a lovely bowl.) They just need a few mists of water each week – or a nice humid bathroom with some natural sunlight. Here are some of my favorite Etsy shops that specialize in air plants…
GET THE LOOK!
Handcrafted hanging pods by Michael McDowell. Very modern. Very cool.
For those going for more of a quirky gone creepy aesthetic, there’s EarthSeaWarrior. (I’m a fan of their lighting too – neon cords…yum.)
Or maybe you’d fancy a miniature air plant terrarium from Sea & Asters.
Let me know where else you’ve been seeing these lovelies!
