Adding Beauty to Your Home, for FREE!!

Hi guys!

Popping in today for a quick reminder about thinking outside the box.

Many times I feel myself getting discouraged when I'm trying to decorate my home. It seems like all the projects I wanna do, or the things I wanna buy are just too expensive. 

That's when I have to stop and remind myself to look around. There are so many things out there that can help me on this journey to the cozy home I want to surround my family with. Things that don't cost a ton of money, and in some cases may even be free!

Todays example of thinking outside the box?

The flowers in these pics, they're actually weeds. 

They've been growing in huge bunches out behind our house and I kept noticing how they really were actually kinda pretty. I finally walked back there last night, tore a few off (they bled this lovely milky stuff), brought them in the house and threw them in a vase.

Totally free!

Disclaimer: The owners of The Concrete Cottage hold no liability if the weeds flowers you bring in your house happen to bring with them special little friends. We recommend shaking them off just a bit and a thorough inspection prior to heading to the house.


  1. It is amazing what we can do when we just stop to think and appreciate the beauty around us. The flowers are beautiful!

  2. So agree!!! What beautiful weeds you have! :) ~Christy
