Well, we’re very nearly reaching the close of this month and I’ve only just got around to writing my styling the seasons post.
But hey. I’m consoling myself with the fact that at least I’ve done one this month!! I missed June’s completely!!
I was recently sent a mini greenhouse from the lovely interiors company Rose & Grey and asked to style it as part of their blogger’s styling challenge, so it seems a wise move to combine this with my styling the seasons post for July.
It’s such a sweet little object — almost like a miniature display case in a museum — and just begs to be filled with all sorts of treasures; jewellery, books, shells.
I think, eventually, I’d like to put tiny succulents in it.
I’ve been pinning away and you can get some really beautiful ones. So perfect and dainty.
I was obsessed with tiny, miniature gardens when I was a little girl. I loved our village show, where they had a ‘garden on a plate’ competition.
When I have more time, I will create a gorgeous garden inside this little glass house. But that is most definitely a project for another day.
So, for now, my very favourite thing to fill it with is fairy lights.
Because until I can get around to buying coloured sand, pebbles and tiny little cacti and succulents, this little greenhouse makes the perfect nightlight.
I was asked to join in with Rose & Grey’s styling challenge and was kindly sent a Mini Greenhouse, to complete my task. You can buy one for yourself — plus lots of other lovely products — from their website. Pop along and have a look www.roseandgrey.co.uk
