I finally bought a StudioOat print on the weekend, from the Glebe Street Fair (which was great fun by the way). We ended up choosing a new limited edition print that is similar to the ‘Spirited’ collection I posted pictures of previously. It is called ‘Apple Tree’. It will be matted and framed (both in black... very moody) this week and we’re picking it up from The Rocks Market next Sunday. Yay!
We also found a great painting from Desperate Damsels (they’re at Glebe Markets every weekend) which I think could be very appropriately hung near my wardrobe.
First I lined the base and sides of each tier with coconut fibre, to stop anything else from falling through. Then I filled each tier with sphagnum moss (to retain moisture – so that it won’t matter too much if I forget to water them occasionally) and an organic potting mix made especially for herb and vegetable gardens.
I planted coriander and sweet basil in the top tier, strawberries and snow peas in the middle tier (the snow peas should trail down the stand as they grow) and mint, chives, parsley and oregano in the bottom tier.
Here are some pictures:
I also bought a bougainvillea to grow up the wall where the plant stand is currently hanging. I figured that by buying a small plant now, I will be able to get it growing so that it looks a bit more impressive by the time our backyard landscaping has been done.
We have lengthened the opening above the stairwell, so that people taller than me no longer hit their head and also to let more light into the downstairs hallway. You can now see the entire height of the right wall of our bedroom from the downstairs hallway (see pic below).
I’m now thinking about painting the wall in a colour and turning it into a gallery, to draw the eye up the full height of the wall from downstairs. It looks like I’ll have space for a lot more of those pictures from my last post.
