A Poem

I thought of this very short poem while singing in the shower. I didn't know the lyrics to the song I was singing so I made this up to sing to the tune. I quite like it so I thought I would share it with you.

What do you think? Do you like it, too?

House Plants

I've been really inspired to buy more house plants by Justina's new tumblr, Welcome to the Jungalow. The jungle vibes are pulsing through me and I'm looking to add a little jungalow into our Korean apartment!

I think the easiest way to get my jungalow on, would be to add some more house plants to the mix. We do have one teeny one, but I think we need some more. I don't think you can never have enough plants in a junglalow!

These are all easy to care for house plants that will add a bit of jungle to any space.

1. Croton - I love the bright multicolor leaves.
2. Boston Fern - adds great texture
3. Madagascar Palm - cheeky and fun
4. Grape Ivy - heaping and beautiful, it really has oomph!
5. Aloe - tried and true and good for you
6. Peperomia - pretty textured leaves

Two Broke Girls and Dutch Doors

I love the new show, 2 Broke Girls. It's a hilarious account of two girls living in Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn and working at a diner. One was always poor growing up and the other was grossly rich before her father got in trouble scamming people and she lost all her money.

They manage to steal back a few of the rich girl's things including a horse, named Chestnut, which lives in their backyard. Chestnut likes to stick his head through the windows or the back door. Every time I see him standing in the door way I think, "They should get a Dutch door!" I know this is a ridiculous thought, but I think it - every. time!

Dutch doors are so charming! I love them.  

Seoul: A Crafter's Paradise

Seoul, South Korea is a crafter's paradise. You might not have known this before, but I can assure you, it's true. You can find everything to make anything in Seoul. I saw endless amounts of beads, elastics, thread, fabrics, fur, zippers, cords, feathers, rhinestones, string, yarn, and so much more! You name it; they have it. I was so overwhelmed I could hardly buy anything but I did manage to buy some embroidery floss and a few needles. :)
