i’ve been itching for spring to come!
warm weather, sunshine, and flowers!!
sadly, it’s still snowing here in washington
so i found a way to make spring come early,
they’re called paperwhites!
i know, a lot of people already know about or have these in their homes,
but i’m young and have only been on my own for 4 years,
so i’m still getting into the whole home decor thing.
i bought mine from amazon.
they were really inexpensive and good quality
(which surprised me).
i planted some in this clear vase that is now sitting on the back of my toilet 😛
i put rocks in the bottom for the roots to grab onto,
and i love being able to see them.
once they grew tall enough i tied a ribbon around two so they would stay together and upright.
pretty cute i think.
i also planted some in blue mason jars to put in our other bathroom.
as my friends know, i am totally obsessed with mason jars,
so this was another great way to use them!
i had a lot more bulbs, but sadly found out that they are poisonous to cats…
(don’t worry, kitty is fine).
i had my other bulbs in my kitchen sitting on top of jars just like this.
i loved this idea because you can watch the roots grow unobstructed.
and i just got bottles at a thrift store for about a dollar each!
hopefully this will give you some inspiration for bringing the outdoors inside
and starting spring a little early.
