shoestring home


http://www.shoestringhome.com I think this shop is so flippin’ cute.  (My sister Cherie doesn’t know it- til now- but I’ve been making fun of her for saying flippin’ behind her back.  One day she called me really mad and she said it like 6 times.  lol) and of course they have a blog http://www.shoestringhome.com/blog/ I love this.  I would love this to be my summer set.  It is so VERY different from any other linens I’ve ever had on my bed.  Tim would hate it.  :( I think this polka dot collection is fabulous!  :)  What a wonderful way to end your day.  I love ruffles.  Vintage button hairpins antiqued silvery votives adorable chandelier such a cute bag this one too- I might even try adding ruffles to a plain tote myself.  This is a little bird rattle for baby snowflake votives on clearance 35.00 for 3

new fav


You may not have noticed a new link I’ve added as a favorite so I wanted to point it out.  This one is great.  I’ve been following this blog for a while now.  I’m sorry to say I don’t know this lovely lady’s name but she has all sorts of great ideas for home projects.  She is super organized and gives great organization tips- a few of which I have used myself.  Check out her archives.  http://chezlarsson.com/myblog/ Here’s her latest project- revamping a shoe shelf.  This is a great idea if you have the space for it by your entry- or back entry, or even in your closet.  one of the tips I recently learned from this site is this one:  If you have something wooden to paint- you can tack a few nails on the backside to prop it up so it doesn’t stick to the newspaper.  Smart.

But it can be achieved at times. To help inspire you to live in the moment, here are 5 great examples: Children. There’s no one better at being present than a child. I love to watch my three-year-old son, Seth, as he plays. He’s not thinking about what happened to him yesterday, or what he’s going to do later today. He’s Spiderman, and he’s fighting the bad guys, and nothing else in the world exists. If he gets mad about something, he overreacts, and nothing else in the world matters but what has upset him. But he’ll cry about it, and then soon return to normal, happy again, the offending situation forgotten without a grudge. He has no cares about tomorrow, and …

Hide your spare key


Glue a rock onto the top of an old prescription bottle then bury the bottle.  Make sure the bottle is big enough for your key.  Isn’t this clever?   I do not remember where I got this photo.  I am going to give a huge shout out to Apartment Therapy though.  I got a lot of my inspirational photos from them.  It is the coolest place on the internet!  Check them out!  I am hoping they will do a Phoenix edition soon!  http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ I really love their LA and Chicago editions the best but everthing on the site is awesome.  Many ideas for home decor, house keeping, intros to new artists, lots of DIY on the cheap and they give lots of sources.  Great job Apt .Therapy!  FeeFee
