Here's the funny thing about blogging. It's the crazy intersection where luck meets imagination, where an experience -- a conversation, a place, food, the way someone's dressed -- sparks an idea that excites me to write about something that in turn will inspire you, dear reader. Sometimes that will fire across the whole website leading me to blog something that may have already be blogged on another part of the website... Our friend received this air plant in glass for Mother's Day. Just as she was forwarding her IPhoto to us, excited, Shayna was blogging a similar arrangement in San Francisco. We figure it must be something in the air. And why not? Beautiful, easy to care for, and inexpensive, it's a natural with the Midcentury modern aesthetic that has found a firm stronghold here out West. Unlike succulents, air plants can survive on a clean and aesthetically pleasing bed of rocks, a great alternative to flowers during the summer months.
