Eucalyptus Steam Shower.

September 9, 2013

EucalyptusI promise I did actual things this weekend – quite a few actually. Unfortunately, two of my projects were a bust (this happens often. Trial and error!), and two of them are unfinished. As much as I love staring at close up photos of plants and flowers, I am aware of the fact that it doesn’t exactly make for super compelling reading material for all of my readers. In conjunction with my slow pace these days, I have been feeling a complete lack of motivation to start or finish any projects. I have thought a lot about it and I think I understand why now – I am ready to purge. My stuff, that is. I am planning a big garage sale as soon as the weather cools down, and so the thought of adding more things to an already “full suitcase”, so to speak, well, seems a little stressful.

So for this weekend, please excuse my overload of hanging plant photos.

I have seen this idea on Pinterest several times, and I have loved the idea since seeing it for the first time. Whole Foods finally had a stash of eucalyptus on Saturday, so I snagged it, snipped it, tied it and hung it. Pretty simple.

I want to make this a new tradition. I think I might switch up the plant – maybe try rosemary or mint, or maybe lavender. What is your favorite aromatherapy smell? Any ideas for what to add next?

    At least your photos of hanging planty things are beautiful! 🙂 Purging is SUCH a great way to re-charge. I know what you mean about projects and space–they can start to take over the house! Especially all the supplies and materials and tools. We really need an apartment that is bigger than a 1-bed to accommodate my many supplies and half-started projects.

    Rosemary is such a wonderful smell too–we had a huge rosemary plant that was given as a housewarming gift and it sat in my kitchen for a long time. It made the whole room smell lovely, and of course using fresh sprigs for cooking was divine.
