Last night I visited my talented friend Holli from Hollyhocks&Hydrangreas & almost died from landscaping beauty. Her home is not the only beautiful thing, but all of the foliage surrounding her home is just stunning. The thought & care she puts into each plant & tree surrounding her home is a gift. There is one thing I have started to become passionate about lately it’s plants. I’ve always loved house plants, but landscaping & gardening has peaked my interest lately & her landscaping was so inspiring. She had the widest variety of plants & knew so much about each and every one of them. Ps. I wish I could tell my 18 year old self that I would go over to my friends house and talk about plants & goats one day… I would love to see my 18 year old reaction. Plants & goats are so exciting! The most magical thing in my adult life is having creative friends that inspire me, push me, & impress me with their talent. I love connecting with creative souls that have true passion that oozes out of them in forms of art. Holli’s recent grand piece of art? A DIY window greenhouse that transports you to a magical secret garden…

Isn’t it gorgeous? Want to know the coolest part? Holli built this greenhouse all by herself. It went from being a dream in her creative mind to reality with some blood, sweat, & tears. How inspiring is that? She said she always dreamed of having a greenhouse so that she would keep her plants safe & warm in our cold early spring months here in Michigan. I have always dreamed of having a greenhouse too, but mine was for looks or an LMB office… she inspires me to really flex my green thumb & build a greenhouse for the same reason. While I was taking these photos last night Holli talked about all here dreams she had for the greenhouse & surrounding areas. The garden area behind the greenhouse is going to be filled with rows of wild flowers, the garden to the left of the greenhouse is going to be sunflowers, & the greenhouse will be filled with plants as well as she starts playing around in the. She kept saying how everything was “unfinished”, but all I saw was beauty.

Holli made this greenhouse entirely out of antique windows, & even made that cupola herself out of old windows. A lot of planning went into this little guy, & I’m sure she could go on and on & tell you about how she put everything together, but I really just came here today to show off her beautiful work. Each detail made me sigh. It took everything in me to stop telling her how amazing the greenhouse was because after the 80th time I’m sure that gets annoying. & can we talk about that white picket fence? It just adds to the charm…

Many of you may not know that Holli is also a local talented artist here in Michigan & we carry her amazing paintings in our store. You can see more of her work [here] on her Instagram. She is also the artist who painted our store sign. I could rave about her all day, but I know that if I keep going on I will embarrass her because she is also one of them most humble people I have ever met. But, when you make a greenhouse like this you are allowed to be a little full of yourself.

Ok, I’m done. Sorry about the picture overload, but I really couldn’t control myself. Holli’s home was just dreamy & maybe I can convince her to let me show you the rest of her home because I feel like you guys would love it. I hope you enjoyed seeing her amazing DIY window greenhouse & that it inspired you in some way. Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by the blog today & be sure to go & show Holli some love. You can find her Facebook & Instagram where she shares more of her work. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, & Facebook for behind the scenes updates of what we are up to at our farmhouse & recent posts. xx
