Indoor Gardens

The sound of the French language.

Spools of lace trimmings.

Delicate patterns on vintage china.

These are just a few of the things I love. One of the latest additions to this list is bringing the outside in. Indoor Gardens.

....................Photobucket

I am not confident enough in my Plant Parenthood abilities to have lots of indoor plants. Hiraldo is my first indoor plant, but I definitely want to give him some adopted siblings in the future. Bright pops of indoor greenery are so gorgeous. That's why I LOVE The L Brandt Terraria.

Lindsay has a Neverland of gorgeous greenery in her living store. Lovely, vivid greenery encapsulated in gorgeous prisms of light.

Photobucket

Lindsay told me quite poignantly that Marc Chagall once said, "Great art picks up where nature ends", and that a lot of people see nature as God's art - instilling life and freedom to all who see it. As an extension of that, Lindsay sees this art that God's given us as Man's Nature. She is fascinated by all the details of this art - and with great respect and admiration, she is motivated by it. She loves experimenting with shape combinations and duplicating nature's textures in her work. In her own words, she "free-plays some of God's ideas into a work I can call my own."
When creating, Lindsay reminds herself that as an adult, her perspective can easily get clouded by worldly perceptions and bias, causing her to forget the natural beauty in the world - so when creating and brainstorming, she "allows herself to revert back to innocence".

Photobucket

With her love for the outdoors, of course Lindsay's interests include camping, hiking and boating. She also loves photography, reading Dwell Magazine, and most importantly being a mother. I am sure she will pass on this love and appreciation of nature to her children! Among her taste preferences are the shade of white, along with green because no matter what shade or hue it comes in - it remains beautiful (i agree!), and See's Candies (especially the Bordeaux, the Chelsea and tbe Butterscotch Squares).

Photobucket
Lindsay is generously giving one lucky reader one of her gorgeous creations. The winner will receive their choice of either the Minimalist Bird Feeder or the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium. To enter, please leave a comment here telling me which one you'd rather win, and also let me know what you love most about bringing the outdoors inside.

What a fun giveaway! These are gorgeous! I love the minimalist bird feeder. :) I love seeing the beautiful color of nature's green inside the house year round!

BlueGrassandGreenTomatoes said...

Wow! What amazing works... I'd personally LOVE to hang that bird feeder right outside my living room window. (Funny, I was wanting to find something fun to hang out there...)

I love bringing the outdoors inside, but since I don't necessarily have a green thumb it can be difficult at times.

MYSAVIOR said...

I love the bird feeder - it is just beautiful.

♥♥♥

Kaye Prince said...

I'd definitely have to say that I'd like the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terrarium. I just love the look of bringing the outdoors in - fresh flowers by the window, pretty little rocks scattered around, etc. Outdoor smells are always nice too!

Lovely Scribbles said...

What a unique giveaway! I would have to go with the Minimalist Bird Feeder. I have plants all over my house and at my office at work, so I love the life that fresh greens bring to any indoor space. :)

Jaime said...

My mom loves terraniums- She makes her own and they are gorgeous! I'd love to win the reindeer moss for her!! :)

treacleandinketsy said...

I love the bird feeder, and the pictures are just gorgeous! I love having plants around the house. It just makes the space seem more alive - especially when it's cold out, like now, and I don't spend too much time outdoors.

Barbara said...

We went to a Christmas party last year and they had made the most beautiful wreath. When I asked her what it was, she said reindeer moss! She has promised to make me one next year. (hope she remembers!)
I love orchids. And luckily, they love me!
The bird feeder is my pick! It's not only adorable, but practical.

passport in my pocket said...

I adore the neoteric one! :)

Favorite thing about bringing the outside in... houseplants relax and cheer any indoor space!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Indoor gardens (terrariums) are really making a come back & I adore them. Lindsay's work is incredible. A great compliment to anyone's home. Great job Lindsay! Hope you are doing well Dionne? I know I'm glad to see our Houston sun back!!

Melissa said...

I love the hanging terratium. Her work is gorgeous, and I love bringing little green bits indoors. It brings life back into our worlds.

Sarah said...

Wow, that is incredible. I love seeing fresh green plants and vibrant flowers all around my home. ;)

These would be a great addition.

I love the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium! What a pretty way to bring the outside in. I LOOOOVE being outside, so anything I can do to feel nature around me is WONDERFUL!

olive juice photography said...

i am excited about this post! i am finally moving out on my own and was thinking of ideas of bringing the outside inside.. i love terrariums! woohoo! :) have a great day

Malou said...

Here in Brussels they have a special exposition on China. It's a tea house and the tea in there is so good!'Just thought I'd tell you even though it doesn't connect that much..
Love, Malou

Rebecca said...

my husband and i have been talking about making our own terraniums for weeks...so i'd have to go with the terranium. i'd also have to say what is there that is not great about bringing nature inside? truly. we have plants, rocks, pine cones, sea shells, drift wood, etc. as our decorations.

Emily said...

I'd love the minimalist bird feeder. I love bringing the outdoors inside because it makes the room feel alive, no matter how dark and dreary the weather is or how down I'm feeling.

TopHat said...

I would choose the moss terrarium because we don't have a yard and probably wouldn't be able to find a place for the bird feeder! But having a mini-yard in the house? Very nice. It makes things more peaceful.

Zo-Be Designs said...

I would love the bird feeder. It's so beautiful.

Plants always bring a sense of calm to a room. They make the world a little more peaceful.

Cee said...

How lovely! I would choose the minimalist bird feeder. What I love about bringing the outdoors in, is that it is usually my toddler that brings the outdoors in. She is forever collecting leaves, rocks, bits of grass -- it is fascinating to see what fascinates her, and I love that she is so interested in the natural world. Thank you so much!

Cabootique said...

I would choose the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terrarium. I like bringing the outdoors inside because I can have plants and life around me all the time, even if it's a blizzard outside. It's very calming.

Rick and Robin said...

The Minimalist bird feeder is AWESOME. I live in Florida and have a lot of small birds in my yard. This year I am concentrating on bird feeders for the front garden which is my whole yard. Look at what Nature gives us just one way of Giving back. "SAVE OUR PLANET"

I think I would pick the Minimalist Bird Feeder, although really I love both of them. I love plants in general, and especially tiny mosses and ferns and other things that are fuzzy and glowing green. My favourite houseplant is an african violet I've had forever. It never dies when I forget it, it keeps putting out fuzzy new leaves, and this year it flowered for three months, right through october and into the new year! Plants make me happy, I'm not sure exactly why.

Seychelles said...

Wow, these are amazing! I would choose the minimalist bird feeder... What an innovative design. Somehow, bringing in the green makes rooms look more alive. There's something very reassuring about being surrounded by things that breath and grow just as we do.

Wehaf said...

I would choose the hanging terrarium! I love how bring nature indoors makes everything brighter and fresher, no matter the season. My mood is always better when I am surround by living, growing things.

photojoy said...

I love your illustraion as I always do. I can't wait to see your newest post popping out in my screen. I also keep my plant in the kitchen. A friend of my gave it to me but I never remember its name. All I remember is not to water it every day. It's good to have something green inside, though.

The Curious Pug said...

wow! first of all your blog is gorgeous! and i love your etsy shop :) if i were lucky enough to win i'd love the minimalist bird feeder :)

what i love most about bringing the outdoors in is the freshness it brings and the constant reminder that spring is just around the corner :)

thanks for the chance!

Lindsey said...

Def. the bird feeder...to go outside my new *almost* house.

Beathag said...

I pick the minimalistic bird feeder.
I think I will put some snowdrop bulbs. They will look great aren't they?

sophia.komninou at gmail.com

Kristin said...

These images are gorgeous!! so lovely. I really like the reindeer moss hanging terrarium...

i just love the vibrant colors of plants inside. you just can't copy the green of fresh leaves.

KarenandJason said...

I'm definitely a fan of the bird feeder. Love the simplicity of it, and I bet my cat would have a field trip staring out at the balcony and all the visitors we'd have!

I've recently moved into an apartment on base here in Korea, leaving my big backyard behind! So it's nice to be able to have these little bits of green throughout the house. f

AMKreations said...

Wow, those are amazing!

Amber said...

I love the Minimalist Bird Feeder and I love feeling the sun on my skin when I am outside!
Thank you for the giveaway :)

ABCDErica said...

I love the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium. That looks so cool, and the glass interesting.

My answer would be that it allows us to never forget the importance of having nature around us. People are cutting down habitats to satisfy themselves with homes, ignoring that they are destroying someone else's. So in bringing the outside life inside, it tells everything that yeah, it's pretty, and yeah, it's up to us to save it from disappearing!!

sisavate(at)hotmail(dot)com

BleuRoo said...

I love the Minimalist Birdfeeder. There are ton of bird feeders nearby, and none of them are mine. This one would put them to shame :)

I love just trying to keep plants alive, which I have a horrible time of doing. So terrariums are my new best friends. They don't hate me when I forget about them.

Diane said...

Hard decision! But since working bird feeders are typically placed outdoors, in the spirit of bringing things in, I'm going to vote in favor of the reindeer moss (and heck, that teardrop shape is gorgeous).

This post reminded me to get my seedlings started indoors very soon...that way I can have delicious homegrown heirloom tomatoes this summer - hooray for plants, indoors and out!!

Lily said...

I would love to have the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium! And having plants or flowers inside is a great way to brighten up a room. My spider plant has been surviving for this past year, thankfully!

PixelatedMushroom said...

hooray! was wonderful to discover this shop - thinking of buying a bday present for my mum here later in the year :)
If I won I would love the bird feeder - mum loves to have our native australian birds come and visit our patio

jamfiescreations1 said...

I love mini gardens. These are all just adorable.

FEDERICA said...

Amazing! Everything is so pretty!

VivatRegina said...

My favorite is the minimalist bird feeder. I love it! I have a traditional wooden bird feeder outside my kitchen window and I love seeing those pretty finches coming by my house for a quick snack or a full meal. I also have a planter full of growing squash and tomato plants that I planted last week in my spare bedroom. I can't wait to get them outside in the yard! :D

Zita said...

I love the the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium. And the more living beings around me the better! :)

alexandrea said...

The minimalist bird feeder, though then I'm torn between bird feeder and terrarium!
We had such a short growing season last year (tomatoes just getting ripe when it was winter again...) that having things alive inside makes me feel a lot happier than waiting for late spring and outdoor plants. I also happen to kill succulents because I have trouble keeping them misted and all I have indoors right now are orchids that won't grow anymore and boring regular houseplants :(
Those are really beautiful, thank you for the giveaway!

Liam said...

These are beautiful! I'd rather the minimalist bird feeder!

sgacrista@yahoo.com

Abigail said...

Wow! I love these! I especially love the minimalist bird feeder. We have some amazing birds in our back yard; my favorites are the family of cardinals. ^_^

I love bringing the outdoors in. I have had an indoor garden this winter, and it's been really nice to watch them grow from so close. And really, it just makes my day feel brighter to have all that lovely green around!

abigail.lee {at} gmail.com

Patiently Waiting??? said...

I like the reindeer moss one.

Jen said...

I love them both but I'm partial to the Minimalist Bird Feeder.
We're moving to a new home this summer and I'd love to have a new bird feeder out in the backyard. We have one out back of our townhouse and I just love watching the Cardinals out there.

great giveaway!

Rebecca said...

I've been admiring your minimalist bird feeder for ages! I hope I win! :)

I love having plants indoors -- not only do they purify the air, but caring for them makes me feel very in-touch with nature!

Great shop, great giveaway! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Sincerely,
Becca

Orchid Grey said...

This post has compelled me out of blog-lurk-a-tude to tell you how much I love these terrariums. Beautiful in the first place, but also perfect for those of us who have extremely curious pets who like to DIG UP YOUR FAVORITE CACTUS AND CARRY IT AROUND THE HOUISE LIKE A PRIZED MOUSE...ahem...because they can be hung out of reach! So, obviously my favorite is the reindeer moss hanger.

I live in a city where there is little greenery, bringing some outdoor beauty inside is good for city-dwelling souls like myself. Sitting and reading among beautiful plants is almost as good as being back home in the mountains (almost).

The minimalist bird-feeder is absolute MONEY! I love bringing the outdoors inside, (especially in winter), b/c it cures my cabin fever and brings some oxygen into the house!

I would LOVE to win the Reindeer Moss. Plants give life, supplying us with the very oxygen we need to breathe and I feel better knowing that by bringing my plants inside I am doing something better for my family!

Kelly's Adventures said...

I love the bird feeder,

I grew up in Oregon and spent most of my childhood days being outside, I now live in L.A. and while there is things to do outside I live in an apartment and spend most of my time indoors! I miss just the simplicity of sitting outside surrounded my nature watching the world go by, perhaps with this I can have a piece of it in my house.

free indeed said...

The birdfeeder would be my choice. These are so cool and different. Very well thought out and creative. I like to have something growing inside; our winters are so long here in northern Maine that I miss the live green things outside. I have been known to stick the root end of scallions into dirt and grow green onions inside during the winter!

AngieHandmade said...

All her items are gorgeous! If I won, I would choose the beautiful bird feeder. I love bringing the outdoors in because it's the best of both worlds!

What a great give away. I LOVE the Bird Feeder!!! What I love most about bring the outdoors in is, They put you in touch with the earth. You have to take care of them; you have to water them. They also clean and humidify the air, along with bring something beautiful in to look at.

if i won, i would choose the reindeer moss hanging terrarium :) i love moss!

bringing the outdoors in is really important during the winter. sometimes, you can go a little stir-crazy when everything is recycled air and monochromatic landscapes. i love the idea that i could have a bit of green, a bit of life right next to me, sending me fresh oxygen, refreshing my body and soul. :)

Hi Dionne :) I'd prefer the bird feeder! Neat post about Lindsay! I like bringing the outdoors in ... because I like being outside better than inside!

AMY said...

The bird feeder is gorgeous!!! I love bringing the outdoors inside because it brightens my day even when it's gray outside and even more when I'm gray inside :)

Cheers!

judith chen said...

I'm in love with the bird feeder! I have beautiful trees in my garden and would love to hang it there :)

what I love the most of bringing outdoors atmosphere into my rooms is catching in the fresh feeling! being outdoor is about being close to the nature and get the fresh and warm feeling at the same time,

while being indoor is shielding you from the bad weather and feeling comfortable.

but actually people needs both! so the best solution to me is bringing the outdoor atmosphere into the house. I have a little fishpond and small plants inside the house. I also plant some flowers in my balcony :)

Andrew.Nordquist@Cox.Net said...

Minimalism meets nature in it's purest form. Lbrandt truely has a gift in the form of an eye for simple, modern nature. Her ability to marry these is genuinely unique. Being a minimalist, it is rare to feel an anomalous compulsion to own more than one of anything you can not consider absolutely necessary. For the Lbrandt brand, perhaps I will re-interpret "absolutely necessary".

Tali Schiffer said...

Oh I love these! I've seen them on Etsy before, and I've marked a bunch as favorites but haven't yet bought any... I love green indoors, but I'm like you, I've not been so successful in the past (I killed Bamboo for god's sake...)I just love the fact that there is something natural living and growing indoors as well!
If I win, I'd like the Minimalist Bird Feeder :)

Oh, the Bird feeder! It is wonderful.

I just got a new house and am bound and determined to get some birds into my neighborhood this spring. They seem to be missing!

I simply adore seeing my plants sprout up in my windowsills. Nothing is lovelier than filling your house with life. I'd say it is good for your soul.

i love the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium!
since i can't be outside all day long i love bring even the smallest piece of the outside in! :)

CraftyShanna said...

These are SO COOL! Your pieces are really beautiful and unique!

I love both of the choices, but I think I would have to go with the minimalist bird feeder.

what I like about bringing nature inside is that nature is essential to life. It makes me feel connected to the larger world. And while I can't always be outside, I can always have a little bit of outside inside! (And I always do!)

I'd love the moss terrarium - being in the Northern climate, it gets pretty dreary and depressing in the winter, so I love having greenery to cheer things up!

And I can only manage to grow things indoors (bamboo, succulents, cacti), that is why I love it. :D

My favorite is the Reindeer Moss Hanging Terranium. Wow! That is just stunning, and so creative!!! I like to bring the outdoors inside because it makes me feel more live. Living in such a cold climate, where there are many months where I don't want to go outside at all, it is critical that I bring as much of the outside world inside as possible. Just having green around me makes me feel so much happier, like I can breathe better!

gpc said...

What beautiful work! I love it all, but would choose the minimalist bird feeder because I am in a 'new' house and just starting to work on gaining the trust of my local birds. I live in Michigan, and it is essential to me to bring the indoors in as much as I can to remind myself, during the long, dreary winter, that spring will come again!

ann ladson said...

i would love love love the reindeer moss hanging terrarium, i love the shape and it sure would bring some green indoors, i don't get a ton of natural light in my tiny beach bungalow so it would be perfect, I have like 40 potted plants on my veranda and nothing inside because of lighting! pick me pick me, please!!!!!
