Our First Blooms!

About three weeks back we planted these seedlings, which I suppose is a variety of Centaurea. This morning we woke up to our first blooms, evenly across all four planters. Such a pleasure to behold!

There is nothing more overjoying than gardening and to see the plants bear flowers and fruits.

Glassy Beauty

Glass is beautiful. Stained or coloured glass is stunning!

I’m loving a recent trend of home decorating with stained bottles, coloured glass lamps and tea light holders. Glass vases have always been popular and even exorbitantly priced sometimes. But now the market has also made available, up-cycled glass bottles that might have held perfume or alcohol at some other time. The craftsmanship and detailing of these bottles that we might have ordinary overlooked is now brought to our attention.

Stained Glass Bottle

I bought some of these lovely glass bottles from Home Center. But what I enjoy even more, is up-cycling wine and other alcohol bottles that we buy ourselves. Instead of throwing away these bottles you can turn them into charming vases, some with their shape and graphics exuding a vintage and rustic feel, some modern and edgy and most others just bright and beautiful.

A lot of beer bottles and even wine come in green glass bottles. When it comes to glass there is something magical in the usage of colour green, I think it bodes well with the  home interiors and exteriors alike and also is any season friendly. It looks fabulous in summer light, mellow and fresh in the monsoons and holds its elegance even during the winters.

Here are some that is making my home cheerful, at no cost at all!

I’m looking forward to using more of these in my terrace garden, the lovely green bottles also look great when teamed up with money plant creepers. The bonus being they are so easy to grow, you just have to fill the bottle with water, break a branch off the creeper and immerse it in the bottle. Happy Decorating!
