Cart Coffee Table

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. 

Just Wink

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.”


The inside reads: “Thanks for helping me ditch those losers.”

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.

The Blog is Back

Life has gotten a little hectic, but as I was told “Just because you have a new boyfriend, doesn’t mean you can neglect your blog”.  Therefore, I have decided to resurrect Pistachioicecream.  Expect some fun additions, since I’ve had close to 9 months to brainstorm ideas.  🙂

Pink Bathroom

I love love this feminine bathroom.  The pink is the perfect shade to compliment the white floor, sink and exquisite mirror.  I have had my eye on a similar mirror at Pier 1, but this one is just magnificent.  I love how everything else in the room is simple, as the mirror is the focal point.  I’m keeping this photo in the file for my future home.
