Summer is my least favorite season… I know, I’ve said that before. But, combine 100º temps, humidity, mosquitos, constant sweat… and the fact that summer temps really last May-October here in Florida, when the cool crisp weather finally hits, it brings all the feels… so when I’m needing a spark of creativity or a pick me up, foraging is always something that helps, no matter the season!
We usually have a pair of clippers that we keep in our car in case we come across any branches that I want to cut- fortunately, we have some really beautiful trees on our family property like this Japanese Elm tree that fell during a recent storm.
After the tree fell, I told Justin I wanted to forage some of these branches before they all died… so one day, we went out and I clipped some branches to add inside our home.
If you are familiar with our work, you will notice that probably 90% of our imagery has greenery in it- greenery helps to bring a space alive and adds an organic aesthetic that softens any room.
I hope you all have been enjoying the summer, spending some time outdoors, gardening, and making memories with your family.
We have a lot planned over the next few months and are currently working on sourcing so many beautiful items for our fall shop (our favorite shop launch of the year). If you haven’t shopped our Summer Shop, be sure to browse what we are currently loving this season before our fall shop launches next month!
