Hello， brides! It's Elizabeth， the owner， curator and stylist of Stockroom Vintagepillow sham pattern， checking in with another DIY project that I am so excited to share with you ladies! Little-known fact： When I'm not hunting for vintage pieces to add to Stockroom's inventory and styling shoots for couples， I'm working really hard to improve my gardening skills. And I don't have the most advanced green thumb， which means succulents have become my best friends.
When I wandered into the gardening aisle at Michael's the other day and saw an array of paint pens designed for terra cotta， I had a total moment. I couldn't wait to put my fledgling drawing skills to the test. In the end， I kept it pretty clean and modern， featuring a few favorite phrases and simple illustrations. The more I painted， the more uses I dreamed up for these love note plant pots. I originally envisioned them as wedding favors for guests， a sweet gift to love， tend to and treasure (you know， one that wouldn't end up in a junk drawer). But these would also make for really cute table numbers (paint a number directly on the pot or stick a note into the soil). Oh， and how charming would it be to line tables with these， using the pots in lieu of place cards？ These are so customizable–；adorn them with anything from guest names to quotes from your favorite songs or snippets from beloved books.pillow cases vintage

And to plant the succulents， you'll need：
These cuties are actually super simple to make：
Hope you enjoyed my foray into creative green thumb experimentation! Tell me： How would you use these love note plant favors？at your ceremony？ And what favorite phrases would you feature？
Hi, it’s Minki from Minki’s Work Table. I am an author of Sew Illustrated?and a new fabric designer for Riley Blake Designs.
Happy Monday!! We woke up to snow! I am sooo not ready for this after last years “polar vortex”. The kids are all off of school today and I can’t think in my 20 years living in Kentucky of a time that we’ve ever had a snow day BEFORE Thanksgiving. I hope this is not a sign of things to come! Hopefully winter is coming early so that it can high tail its way out-of-town early too.
When my kids were little and still in elementary school, I found myself many times in charge of one of my kid’s classes for Teacher Appreciation last week.? One of the tasks that I was frequently given was decorating the classroom door for teacher appreciation week.?I’ve seen SO many cute ideas for classroom door decorations online and on Pinterest, but many times wanted to do something more permanent than just using butcher paper. I thought it would be great to make something that their teachers could keep from year to year, so the door decoration could double as a teacher gift.
