chelseapetaja Here's the only pretty branch on any of my camellias. Poor babe was broken today when garbage fell on her head out of our newly dry-walled second story. So cheers to the bright side and enjoying her from indoors today. 4d

chelseapetaja A rare envelope addressing job but a not so rare scene of a total mess on my desk. Anyone else invariably end up working like this, even though it's the worst? 1w

chelseapetaja Anyone have a clue why my camellia buds are dropping off before they bloom? | Insert one-single-tear-drop emoticon. | 2w
  •   vanrey Off topic @chelseapetaja who makes your fabulous sandals? I ️ them! 2w
  •   aliharper You know, my mom always told me to take a bud off of a camellia branch that had "double buds" because it made the surviving bud stronger and larger. Here's to hoping the ones that remain will be extra beautiful. 2w
  •   lindsayraeschwak I'm so jealous you are wearing sandals right now. Xo 2w
  •   anniembarnes At least you have blooms? Mine has none :( 2w
  •   heidishedlock It's from extreme weather....they hate extreme cold or heat. Here in South Africa in Durban my trees only flower in winter because the heat of our summer is too harsh.....so extreme cold could have something to do with it! Hopefully your later buds will have more success.... They are so beautiful! 2w
  •   brownpaperdesign Hmmm. Did your temps drop quickly? 2w
  •   debpaxtonhughes Oh, no! 2w
  •   rebekkaseale It's the crazy temperature fluctuations! Camellias can be so temperamental in middle Tennessee, with our fickle weather. Such a bummer! 2w

chelseapetaja Half of our home is under construction. To all you thrifty, money conscious creatives out there: Where should I be sourcing from, especially bathroom pieces (vanities, mirrors, etc.) and lighting? Any leads would be appreciated! (The flowering quince in the photo is just because it's the prettiest thing from my yard this week.) 4w
  •   allsortsofpretty Overstock! 4w
  •   sawyerbaird As crazy as it is, Home Depot has an amazing bathroom & kitchen selection. A good friend of mind recently redid their entire home and found most of what they needed there. Also, they have great mirrors at great prices! Good luck :) 4w
  •   megblackney Buy the 10% off coupons for Lowe's and Home Depot on eBay. They are super cheap and usually free shipping. Will save you a bundle! Just check expiration dates first! And if you want to double dip, buy gift cards off of carpool.com....it all adds up and doesn't require much work. 4w
  •   sirenfloralco @smidthat help a lady out ! 4w
  •   jennakutcher Just emailed you girlfriend! 4w
  •   schoolhouse Yes...we have all your lighting needs covered:)! 4w
  •   smidthat @chelseapetaja check out my website. If you like my style, happy to help you out. Give me a call - smidthat@hotmail.com 4w

chelseapetaja The last of this family's March birthdays belongs to @jordanbyers and the mold for goodness was broken when she was born. She's the brightest light, the most tender soul and truly, truly the most beautiful, inside and out. As if calling her friend wasn't enough, I am the lucky one to call her sister. Happy day, doll baby. xo 4w

chelseapetaja For the woman who embodies Spring, is it any surprise you share your birthday with the first day of the season? The happiest of days to my mama, @debpaxtonhughes. And just like Spring, she's beautiful, warm, graceful and ever growing. I can't imagine loving a mother more than I do you, Deb. xo xo xo 4w

chelseapetaja This old woman couldn't be more grateful for a long weekend of birthday love. Overwhelmingly grateful for the journey with such beauty, support and grace in my life. Here's to thirty times thirty more of learning, loving, forgiving, being forgiven and taking care of one another with this one "odd and precious life." xo 1mon
