Plant-a-colada!? Yes please! The coconuts cost me $1.89 each at my local Asian grocery market. I had all the tools, fabric and string in my craft closet–so these planters cost me less than $2 to make! Cheap, eco–and fun to do with kids (provided you do the saw part) this project is perfect for adding a bit of green in the home–and the table-planters can easily be personalized with names or table-numbers for special events (think weddings, showers, graduations, birthdays etc.) Perfect summer project, yes?

Yesterday I talked about Blooming and here is some evidence of blooming in the Jungalow. Some succulents that I grew from cuttings are getting pots of there own now. And yes, Ida has two front teeth (and has learned how to wave!) ! Happy weekend friends of the Jungalow–we say, waving bye bye!
Amazing tripod pot from Stvdio Brooklyn–thanks guys I’m obsessed with it!

As the Spring approaches (my favorite season!) I’m looking at new ways to display my botanicals and I’m excited about this vintage test-tubes rack. It’s going to be stunning to hold big boisterous blooms and frilly florals in, as a centerpiece at meals, or just to add visual interest to bookshelves and consoles. New ones are are surprisingly affordable and they give even the most modest of leaves and branches quite a bit of dignity. Springtime, I welcome you!
Friendly Reminder to go here to sign up for my Interior Styling Course–it starts April 1st!
I just found out about these amazing vessels by 1012 Terra via this pin and I dropped everything to share them here. These things are incredible, right?!? I am so in love. They remind me of the little curio boxes that I collect–only the fact that they hold water is so cool! Vases, planters, fish bowls–so friggen gorgeous. I want a wall full of them. Greedy? Perhaps–but, friends–I got A LOT of plants!
