pretty banner made from vintage linens, a find on etsy last year. it's so soft and adds a touch of spring to our family room. it reminds me that i wish i knew how to sew...something on my to-do list, definitely.
this is just a little glimpse of my inspiration board right now...decluttered, but with lots of things waiting to be added!
thrifted baubles and tins for crafting
i'm not sure if i've posted a photo before of my little collection of jewelry chests. i have a rule that i buy them if they're 1- 2 dollars or less - i've seen widely varying prices on these! i think they sometimes sell on etsy for 10 times that amount; but then again, i haven't looked lately:)
a stamp storage solution, finally:) i need to "see" my stamps and these little plastic cases were 50% off at joann's last week. perfect for me.
i didn't really realize i had a little collection of hats until i started on my organizing journey...it is so fun to rediscover things! most of the time, that is...there are always a few items that make me shake my head:)
i have absolutely NO interest in guns. and i would prefer that my boys didn't either. but i have to confess that i spent 2.5 hours helping my 8 year old make this paper gun one day over the long easter week-end...it was a torturous process, but in the end, it was a project we could do together:) and that's how i'm looking at it...
and i'd sincerely like your opinion on this. i have been taking photos of some items we'd like to sell, in the effort to declutter and simplify our home. i never thought twice about this item, until i downloaded the photo - and now i'm unsure. would you keep or sell? it is certainly a lot more formal than most of the things in our home at this point...yet it has a certain vintagey charm. it literally looks like it's glowing, and this photo was taken in natural light... it honestly does look like this on a sunny day. we bought this when we were first married and we had a more formal feel to the home we lived in then. i know it can work in any setting, but i'd welcome your thoughts:)
sell? or keep?
i am so eager to see the posts from Round Top! my one and only visit there, so far, was for the 2009 spring show - and it was completely wonderful...so i'm excited for the "reports" and photos for this year:)
