Every once in a while a perfect gift comes along. Sometimes they are small and sometimes they are big. But the key is they usually have a very special meaning. Often, the perfect gift is one that took thought. I have always made most of my gifts trying to create that perfect gift.
I have wanted to make shiplap charges for a very long time. I even bought the wood and did some homework as to how I should make them.
One of my favorite ways to spend a weekend morning is at an antique flea market. I have shared my thoughts about how to shop at flea markets in a previous post. I try to go to as many as I can because but I think all flea markets are great. You just need to know what to look for!
I love plants. Especially real ones. So this week I have been on the search for a fiddle leaf fig plant. The big question is “Real or faux?” I know a real one is by far the best, but sometimes a girl has got to be practical and sneak in a faux one every once in a while.
I just realized I should probably do a new blog post on collecting chalkboards. If you walk around my house I think you would be shocked to see how many I have hanging on my walls. Technically I think I have another collection … chalkboards (you can see when I’ve posted about them here, here and here). Big surprise.
The problem is … what do I put on them? I love writing funny things and messages but I don’t love my handwriting. Fortunately, I came up with a solution.
The key piece of furniture in my office makeover is the “project table”. As much as I wanted to find a table exactly like the ones Joanna Gaines has in her “flower room” (which I used as my inspiration photo), I knew reality would set in and I would need to compromise.
