Do you remember the days when you used to scour websites for images of things you liked, right-click-saved, and organized all the images into folders on your computer? No? Just me? Okay. Well, that was my version of Pinterest before Pinterest was a thing.
Over the last year or so, I have learned a lot of things about myself. There are a lot of trends that I never would have imagined liking, and now sort of love. It goes a lot further than the chevron/gray/yellow extravaganza of last year. Let’s just put that to rest, shall we?
Here are 8 things I have learned about myself since Pinterest
trapped me came along:
1. I love succulents.
2. Put gold on it, and you win.
3. It’s all about the abstract art. Who knew?
5. Garden sheds. I want to become a gardener just so I can have a shed.
6. Terrariums are everything. I LOVE terrariums. I have no idea why. I mean, I now realize I like succulents, so yeah.. it makes sense.
7. I’m super into shirts with animals on them.
8. Life is better with a little color. Or a lot. Or like a nausea-inducing rainbow of color.
It’s SPRING! Okay, it’s been spring for about a month and I’m incredibly behind. Technically, there are two months left, so it’s still relevant!
Above all else, I have become obsessed with succulents. I don’t know if it’s because I see them more often, or it is a sign of getting older. I used to hate them and liked other flowers more. But I am definitely planning on some type of succulent craft this season. My favorite idea so far is using brightly colored rocks.
Also, terrariums! No big surprise due to my new fascination with succulents. There are three types of terrariums I want to try this spring: in a random object (see teapot), a themed terrarium, and a geometric terrarium.
Geometric + Neon
Speaking of geometric shapes.. yeah they’re in! They have been in for a while. But I tend to be about 3 steps behind. Throw in a few neon colors, and you’re set!
Painted Pots + Typography
There are so many painted pots I am loving, so the following are a few of dozens I have saved. Also planning on at least one with typography.
Who else loves the idea of just painting randomly found objects or kitchen utensils?
I have never had a favorite style of art; I would just like random things in all different styles. I am definitely leaning more towards abstracts though. All of the below paintings are from Etsy sellers.
