After some eco-friendly inspiration? Let me share what’s been inspiring me this month.
I’ve been busy pinning on Pinterest this month. And I wanted to share my favourites that I’ve shared on there in case you’re not a Pinterest convert (yet!). I say yet because my partner has just become a Pinterest convert! After years of saying he just doesn’t get it, he’s only just gone and set up his own Pinterest board. As we speak, he’s now happily pinning pictures of his dream fish tanks (he loves his fish!), saying that he finally gets it!
My Eco-Friendly Inspiration
Here’s the eco-friendly inspiration I found on Pinterest this month:
Mini Avocado and Hummus Quesadilla
I pinned this avocado and hummus quesadilla recipe onto my vegetarian cooking board, only to find the link doesn’t work. But fear not, I tracked down the original recipe here. I don’t know about you, but I feel hungry just looking at this!
So, these bottle candlesticks are probably a) a Christmas thing and b) a bridal thing, but I love the look of these. I’m going to have to find a way to incorporate these into my life! For more ideas like this, do check out my post on zero-waste Christmas decorations.
Potting Shed and Greenhouse
This potting shed/greenhouse is just stunning. Our allotment doesn’t allow you to erect a shed, let alone a potting shed come greenhouse, but a girl can dream!
I pinned this beautiful dining room that belongs to Lou Archell of the blog Little Green Shed. As well as having serious William Morris wallpaper envy I love her mix of secondhand furniture and accessories. Want to see more? Check out the house tour I posted, for more eco-friendly inspiration.
We grew a lemon plant from seed several years ago but sadly the plant died before getting very big. To be fair, we were living in a big draughty Edinburgh tenement in a really cold winter, so it probably never stood a chance. But this pin reminded me that it’s so easy. So we fished out the seeds from the lemon we used on Pancake Day, and have planted them up and are on the go right now!
Because we live in Scotland and don’t enjoy a Mediterranean climate (far from it – there was snow this week!) we don’t plant them outside – just keep them as houseplants. Seems other people are getting some eco-friendly inspiration from it – this bad boy has been repinned 49 times so far!
For more eco-friendly inspiration, then do follow along with me on Pinterest. You can also catch up with me in my post on the last little while, if you fancy a wee insight into things behind the scenes.
