Can you explain love to me? (a little contest)

What is love?

I’m feeling stymied by this question lately.

I’m pretty sure i love (and am possibly “In love” with) my children. Beyond that I am losing site of what it actually means to love, be in love, or even be loved for that matter.  Does this make me a cynic?  Does it seem like somewhat of a negative attitude on my part?  It’s just so abstract. I’m not trying to be a downer…just looking for answers to the harder questions i guess!!

I turn to you all to open my eyes to love.  Any answers are welcomed…

What is love?

Post your answer in my comments by this Tuesday, 2/14,  and you’ll be entered to win a scrumptious tie-dyed  Love Tanjane scarf ($84 value) of your choosing!

I knew i could count on you all!!

terrarium obsession

OKAY… so Yomaira has been yammering on-and-on about terrariums since last summer (her husband says its been going on for 3-years now) and we finally are dedicating a blog entry to her love of the little-green-eco-systems-in-a-jar!

These little beauties can be displayed in vintage glass jars, carafes, or any other worthy container. They add a little earthiness to any modern/vintage home! Yomaira has gone from buying gorgeous terrariums from Twig Terrariums NYC  to making her own right at home. With a little help from Beethoven’s Veranda (moss and gravel), Hoboken Hothouse (succulent plants), and Succulents Galore (baby succulent cuttings), many a terrerium has been made by Yomaira & Tacuma – (they even made an appearance at her surprise wedding where four lucky guests went home with a little-green-world of their own)!

These bad-boys are super easy to care for…just a little spritz of water every week or so, and some indirect sunlight! Great for those with/out a green-thumb and super cute for the kiddos!

Interested in making your own? Check this out or ask one of the girls at Peper & Parlor!
