"Wood" you do me a favor?

Friday, September 04, 2015

The theme this week seems to be all about wood.   For starters, I shared a quick fall centerpiece I put together using leftover paint on My Colortopia...

Then Country Living included my floating witch hats with branch broom vignette in a round up of quick + easy halloween decorating ideas. (And in case you are wondering, I am working on this year's theme but I'm woefully behind.  Anyone want to be my Halloween decor intern?)


Last but not least, my secret log box project was selected to be in the running for this month's Bob Vila thumbs up contest.  Pardon the pun but "wood" you do me a favor and go vote for it?  (No registration necessary and you can vote once a day all month long.)  As a child of the 80s, getting a nod from Bob Vila gives me street cred.

5 Amazing Ways to Repurpose Vintage Suitcases

Tuesday, September 01, 2015

It's no secret I have a love of vintage suitcases. (See exhibit A: Vintage Suitcase Cat Bed)  Whenever I spot them for sale, I have to resist the urge to bring them all home with me because really, what am I going to do with them?   Well, now I have 5 great excuses to continue to collect.


This suitcase was turned into a photo prop that could easily double as art by the talented people at The Copper Anchor.  Gorgeous!

Tara Dennis play suitcase is fabulous - toys that come with their own storage always get extra points!  | I've tried to make a side table with suitcases that was a bit of a disaster but an end of bed trunk is so much of a better idea because it requires just the one and it's easy to DIY. | Lolly Jane wins the award for most obvious genius reuse by simply repurposing them as organizing bins | Ki Nassauer takes it to new heights with a gallery wall of DIY suitcase shelves

So take that practicality - now I can't afford not to pick up all those vintage suitcases I've been passing up.  Totally enabled.
