I was never a massive pink fan (the colour, not rock star 😊), I never really wore it or had it in my home. Green, however, has always been one of my favourite colours as it made me feel connected to nature and the outside world and wherever I have lived, I have always had at least one potted plant to break up the magnolia…

How to Create a Hanging Christmas Table Decoration
