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:
The inside reads: “Thanks for helping me ditch those losers.”
Antique ladders have a lot of uses. Of course, there is the typical “I need to hang something and can’t reach it” ladder, and then there are the ample other purposes that are creative and add character to a room. Here are just a few ideas that get the brain waves going.
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.
This is my vision for the headboard!
Or use vintage doors and clean linens.
Something as simple as weathered boards can make a statement.
Or for a cottage feel, try oars.
Burlap provides a great caramel color and adds texture to any room. Here are just a few of many ideas for your home. Maybe you wont want to snuggle up on the pillow, but it definitely adds an awesome look.
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!
The practical option – eggs, fruit, vegetables.
The artistic option – a fresh flower from the garden.
Playful option – sweet treats for a party
Why not add a bit of cheer to your morning wake up call? Here are some amazingly adorable alarm clocks that I would love to wake up to! In fact, I actually own the first one. It wakes me up with light instead of sound – so peaceful.
I stumbled across the Industry West website and could purchase literally everything on the site. They also have a great Blog. Here are some of my favorites.
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.
I found a cheap Enamel Barn Light Shade at Elkhorn Flea Market and this will be my future kitchen light when I get a house. For now, it sits in the corner, but how adorable will this be over a wood table.
