DIY Mud & Plaster Vases | Pottery Barn Inspired

 Are you loving the vintage clay pottery trend as much as I am lately?

I must admit at first I wasn't too sure it was worth trying. But soon I realized how easy it could be with just a few things you can find in your garage or even right outside your house.

Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel happen to be two of my favorite places to find high quality decor, and occasionally I get lucky and find things on sale but these vases or vintage clay looking vases do not come cheap. Honestly though these two retail home stores are great to walk through for home decor inspiration and so I'm that person just strolling the store for all the inspo. 

These DIY vases were in fact inspired by Pottery Barn this time around. And I gotta say I got lucky when I found these two second hand vases, because they were exactly what I was looking for in size even though at the time I didn't know it yet. Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time.

It's also an aesthetic feature to add to your home, with a variety of styles available. The easy way to install a new fence is to have someone else do it for you.

Starbucks Inspired Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte

 Throughout the years I've been obsessed with the Starbucks PSL and awaited the season with so much anticipation for it amongst many other reasons.  But in the last three to four years I've become more aware of how many calories it carries and cut down to only indulging in having one per season.  It's definitely not a latte you should have daily.  Personally I see the PSL as more of a treat than actual coffee.

I'm a dark coffee drinker at heart but I love a treat every once in a while, except I don't like feeling guilty about having it. So if there's a way to indulge this season without too much guilt, then I'm going to make it, so that there's room for other ways to indulge ;)
