Investing In Things That Add To Our Happiness & Comfort🏡💕

Picking flowers during classroom breaks☺️

After a year spend indoors, we all have come to realized if our homes are comfortable and well furnished and well equipped to keeps us happy. Last year I woke up every day, running around trying to make studying on zoom comfortable and more private. Tried to cook without making too much noise, and tried to entertain little ones without using electronics. Buying groceries on timely manner, so I didn’t have to wait for milk for 4 days, and manage to prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, dictated by school and meeting hours.

Going outdoors became a necessary chore. Our eyes needed a break, we needed a break from each other, and we needed fresh air for our physical and mental health. Our backyard turned into a playground, and front yard was private enough to set up chairs for reading, and snacking outdoors.

I was happy to notice that I had the basics to make our home a playground, a school, an office, and my kitchen equipped to cook and bake, without delays or extra stress.

My believe in creating a home based on the most important fact “ Invest In Things That Make Us Happy & Comfortable” became more obvious. A manageable garden, with flower pots that can be moved indoors, a living room with soft large pillows for napping and playing game boards on the floor. A kitchen ready to prepare and store large platters for snacks, and movie night cheese trays. A patio and a porch for little ones to play, learn gardening, and pick flowers, with comfortable chairs and small tables to hold books, and a bubble machine.

I learned more, and was much more aware of my families comfort and productivity, but what was interesting to learn was the fact that when staying together meant staying healthy, keeping each other happy became an easy task.

A Fabulous House Plant🪴

The dracaena lemon lime lite

Dracaena Lemon Lite plant is beautiful and easy to care for. If you enjoy green plants, like to care for them, and decorate with them, and don’t care for complicated rituals, this is the plant that you will enjoy for a long time. It grows to layers of pale green leaves that are almost translucent. Requires very low light, and just enough water to keep its soil moist. I have just recently noticed that both my plants needed a larger pot, and to keep them healthy I needed to move them to a larger home.

To my surprise I realized they both had grown another new plant, and it was a bit crowded for both of them continue growing & spreading their roots for more nutrients. I was a proud parent of two more plants. Since I like smaller potted plants, just so I can easily move them to different rooms in the house, I decided to give the young plants their own pots.

Separating
Now 4 dracaena lemon lime plants

Looking closely I was sure that they were not attached and had their own root system, and separating them would be easy without any invasive moves against the new plants. After a few minutes I successfully created two more Dracaena lemon lime plants. 👍🥳🥳

I hope you enjoy watching the video on how I started separating, and replanting these beautiful plants. keeping fingers crossed, I hope I see the birth of new plants soon.

Spring Colors & Floral Designs☘️for Home🌷

Soft blue accent pillows

Long, cold, colorless winter has turned into blooms popping through the green grass and tree branches. Announcing we are awake, and ready to go.

As much as I love and live for color, and mild temperatures for gardening, spring is not my favorite season. Unfortunately the suffering from allergies, and the haze created by floating pollen makes everyday in spring sheltering indoors, and spending mornings indoors when the pollen count is the highest. Giving me plenty of time to put away wooly winter blankets, and decorating with floral pattern and pastel colors. I took pictures of some beautiful pieces I ran into while shopping. They are easy inexpensive accent pieces that change any room to spring and inspire you to make simple changes. They certainly inspired me as I stay indoors, skipping the pollen haze.

These pillows are spring🌷🌸

Decorating for spring🌻🐝

Thinking🌸 spring colors💕

By March I am ready to open the windows, and start planting. But almost every year, I have to wait till the end of May for airing our house and walking into my garden. I have learned my lessen, fooled with few days of mild temperatures and pure sunshine in mid March, just to end up pulling sweaters out of drawers, and covering my new plants with bed sheets.🥺

For now to ease the itch for spring weather, I surround myself with potted daffodils, tulips, and colors of spring. Accent pieces in pinks, blues, glass and crystal, looking ahead to a gorgeous spring🌻🐝

Keeping my eyes wide open for the cherry trees and redbud trees to burst in color. Any day now!!! (fingers crossed😆)

Need a place to write🤔

I have been trying to create a quiet corner to write & read, but I constantly got distracted. The fact that I get pulled to many directions, and not the one I wanted to go, was finally too much. So a cloudy cold day pushed me to stop, plan, and take action. 🤣

It is one of my most favorite hobbies around the house, to refigure a room, and move all the furniture around. The fact that we are all stuck under one roof 24/7 had made it even more urgent to create corners, and spaces in my house to help everyone enjoy privacy and quiet spaces. The need to think, work, and work on school projects was urgent. The goal of this project was to be peaceful in a space at home without getting interrupted, and yes making this space look good too. To start my writing and thinking space I chose my bedroom, and a view by the window. Pulled a round table from another room, which opened more space for running around for my child when off zoom, and pulled a lamp from my guest room.

Let me tell you I am very happy with how it all came together, and having a place with all my favorite journals and writing notes just makes me happy, and at peace. You can watch me putting together my peaceful space step by step. Just go to our YouTube channel or click on the link.

I hope you already have a quiet, peaceful place to catch your breath, and enjoy a moment thinking, and writing, and reading 😌

A Great Piece of Accessory😎

When it comes to decorating and purchasing furniture for my house, I feel smarter and happier buying a piece that can have more than one purpose. I often like moving my furniture from room to room, and change around the look and feel of my surroundings, and having the freedom to have a fresh look when I need it.

Same goes with buying clothes. When purchasing a blouse or a casual piece, I think of matching that piece with what already have in my closet. Investing in pieces that I know I can wear to more than one occasion. This thought process saves me money, space in my closet, and when traveling, lighter luggage.

Scarves are a smart purchase, and can easily add color, style, and interest to any outfit. By adding a scarf to what I am wearing, I can easily switch from work attire to cocktail, and dinner out with friends. A colorful large scarf can cover a blouse and change the look of what I am wearing in minutes, and help me feel refreshed and stylish.

You can watch the way I choose my scarves, and how I wear them for different occasions. https://youtu.be/1BelN5pmp38 I hope you enjoy watching, and leave your comments. Please remember to like & subscribe👍😃 Thank you💕
