Over the weekend, we noticed our hallway was sad, and lonely and needed something.

Photos are too conventional and expected, so we headed over to the gardening store and bought some airplants. The fantastic thing about airplants is they don’t need soil to survive. They’re minimal, and simple, and that’s just how I like it.

My smart husband decided the best way to hang them would be a few hook and eye screws. To which I replied, “GENIUS!” And we got started.

I served project manager, as Pat measured, mathed, and twisted those suckers into the wall.

…And voilĂ !

Or should I say,

Wallaaahhh!

To keep them alive and majestic, I have to soak them overnight every two weeks.

Let them dry.

I couldn’t do it. I’d get up in the middle of the night to go pee and think it was spiders on the wall and smash them to pieces. This would just freak me out at every turn!

Brilliant, I say! I love your creativity. My walls have pictures and framed art….just like everyone else’s. Oh, and handprints.

I love these crazy little plants!! I have about 300 wine corks that I want to stick them in but have lacked the momentum to get started. They look great. So simple and but the shadows and green color is refreshing and interesting.
