If you have been to a flea market or vintage shop lately, you probably would have seen the cart coffee tables. I actually found a mangled cart in a Northern Wisconsin antique store and plan on fixing it up. The best part is, it was only $40! Now in comparison, you can find carts at flea markets for upwards of $150 – $700! I think I got quite a bargain.
Target now carries justWink greeting cards. I am officially obsessed. justWink is a greeting card program with cards in stores, mobile apps and a website. justWink is the first greeting card brand that lets you connect anywhere, at least that is what their website says. Some of my personal favorites are below.
The inside reads: “I’ll let you guys decide who this card is for.”
FOR THE LOVED ONE:
I made the trip to Gold Rush Days in Downtown Oronoco. My big purchase was a piece of patterned tin which I plan to use as a headboard in my future house. I have been making a lot of big purchases lately, so much so that we are going to need to purchase a storage unit. The one bedroom isn’t going to cut it.
Vintage maps are fun and affordable decorating ideas. I recently found a map of the Pacific Ocean that has “Caroline Islands” (my name) written in the middle. It also shows where my grandfather was stationed in WWII. This is definitely going to be art for my new home. I’m searching for the perfect frame, but hope it has the impact these maps have!
I recently purchased an adorable teal kitchen scale from an antique store. As of now, it is sitting on my kitchen shelf waiting for a purpose, so I decided to explore some options and found these brilliant ideas!
I’m loving my collapsible wire baskets. The first one I purchased at a flea market and plan to use as a hamper because it has legs and will be great for transporting clothes to an outdoor clothesline. The other is from CB2 for $39.95 and will be used for blankets in my living room.
