I’m going to make it my goal to post things that I love, think are fabulous, or find helpful, on a regular basis. They may be major, they may be small and mundane. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…
Beautiful packaging and vintage finds.
I have a
small growing collection of vintage cameras. I usually search etsy and then narrow my search to see if any are local, to pick up myself and avoid shipping costs. I purchased this lovely Brownie Bull’s-Eye from Pop Quiz 123. My new-to-me little camera came in the cutest, personalize packaging, and was even hand-delivered to my door while one of the owners was out and about! Owners Kathy & Vanessa also have a homeware shop, Flume Street. This vintage mahogany tray, along with a whole bunch of other things, are really tempting me.
Please tell me everyone else is as obsessed as I am! You can feel organized without really doing a thing. Some of the ideas in my head, I can really start to see take shape on a board. I am so in love with Pinterest!
Sometimes though it’s so hard to get
sucked in carried away. On one of my boards, “For the Boys,” an Airstream (top right) may not be feasible, however, the magnet board (top left) is a nice idea.
Without Pinterest I may not have had the quick thinking to not get rid of this old frame. I wouldn’t have known right away that I could easily turn it into a magnet board for my oldest! And now it’s so nice & easy to have his ABC magnets in his room, instead of falling off of the fridge. So really, that is not time wasted, that is money & sanity saved! Right?!
Don’t you love how neat and clean he keeps his room? (Cracking myself up.)
If you need an invite to Pinterest, please let me know! And if you want to follow me, you can find me HERE. Pinterest does have some great uses! I have a friend who looks at other friend’s boards to see their interests to use when she is having them over for dinner, when taking a friend a home-cooked meal, and when gift shopping. Too sweet.
And last (and somewhat least), my Pampered Chef Cut-N-Seal.
I don’t know how kids instinctively know how to dislike the crust of bread. Seriously. Mine has just started rejecting the crust of bread and it really bugs me when he leaves it untouched on his plate. Plus, he’s not that great at determining what is/isn’t crust, so he has started to leave a lot untouched. Enter Cut-N-Seal. Now I cut his sandwich, he eats it all, and I get a side sandwich. Functional & adorable, sometimes the little things make my day.
