That springtime feeling

You know what I’m talkin’ about? The time of year when the days get longer, the sky gets bluer and even the birds seem to be singing in a higher octave? That’s my favorite time of the year. Fortunately, in California, spring starts early with flowers blossoming as soon as in February. By the time March rolls around, things are in full bloom.

One of my favorite blooms are the mustard greens. The flowers from the mustard plant are so vibrant but only last for a few weeks in the early spring; I wanted to capture that moment and keep it forever. So I did just that. There’s a beautiful mustard field not too far from our house where I took some pictures. (Pictures from that outing to come in a future blog post!)

To display my Polaroid pictures, I partnered with Glade to create a handy (easy) DIY project you can do in literally 2 minutes (okay maybe 3).

Click through to see the tutorial & more pictures. 

Materials:

– Wooden clothespins
– Wood stain (optional but makes a nice aesthetic)
– Mason jar lids
– Sand
– Pretty pictures (Your pictures totally don’t have to be Polaroids. I just really like the aesthetic of Polaroid pictures.)

Use the clothespins as is or dress them up with washi tape or stain. I used Rust-Oleum Early American Wood Stain for a nice rustic look. Put sand in your mason jar lids. Fasten your photos into the clothespins and place the clothespins in the sand. Done!

I feel the most unbridled when I’m taking pictures. Whether I’m in front of the camera for outfit pictures or making magic behind the lens, nothing makes me feel more alive than creating beautiful images.

Pictures of flowers have a nice aesthetic to them, but to create the all-encompassing feeling of spring, I used Glade’s Hello Spring candle & wax melt. It has a wonderful light & fresh smell that is strong enough to carry throughout the home but not overpowering.

Tell me, friends, what makes YOU feel the most unbridled? Is it a certain season, a certain scent, a certain activity, a certain outfit even?

I created this post in partnership with Glade. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that keep Drifter & the Gypsy up and running! Follow Glade’s new Pinterest page for more inspiration.
