Forcing Branches to Bloom | Satori Design for Living

Ready to perk up your space for spring? I have an easy project for you today… This one requires a little patience, but nothing compared to forcing bulbs. With branches, you’ll start to see changes in days, not weeks. If you have a tree or shrub in your yard that flowers in the spring, that’s all […]

Spring is just around the corner and I can’t help but think about outdoor projects. There’s something about getting outside after being cooped up all winter and sprucing things up, isn’t there?

Ten Minute Project / Crocus Planter

Easy & Inexpensive Spring Crocus Planter Using Bulbs from the Grocery Store.

Although we’ve had a fairly mild winter compared to last year, I can’t help but feel a little hum-drum this time of year.

Lavender Infused Sugar

Lavender Infused Sugar

I started with one tiny lavender plant years ago that has spread into a tiny garden of sorts. Nothing like the beautiful fields of Provence, but my own little pièce de résistance. Until last year, I had only enjoyed the heavenly aroma and beautiful color of these tiny blossoms. Then, I baked lavender shortbread cookies […]
