IMG_6448 copyWhat an amazing thrift store find and even more amazing redo. West Furniture Revival scored a library card catalog file and gave new life to – count them – sixty drawers. Gorgeous!

welovedaddy2-1I love this personalized Father’s Day gift from Vanessa’s Values. A darling shadow picture that can be modified for any occasion.

IMG_3217Alderberry Hill took an old headboard and created a wonderful garden bench. Sunny yellow paint makes it the cheeriest spot to sit out and enjoy summer.

Cosmopolitan editedWill Cook for Smiles brings us an elegant grown up drink. A classic Cosmopolitan with a twist of lime. Yes please – but just one for me or I’ll never finish this post.

DSC_1394Oh boy – Cherry Fritters by Mom on Timeout. Sometimes you have to just forget about healthy and eat a few [or more] delicious treats like cherries and dough cooked in hot oil. Look how innocent that plate of fritters looks!

DSC_0015Are you growing tomatoes this season? Once you’re done, here’s a great idea to use an old tomato cage. An outdoor chandelier by Piglogs and Taterberries. Super cute – a rustic and fun outdoor décor item.

garden markers 007I’ve always loved plant markers made from vintage utensils. But one of the problems I have is that I don’t have metal stamps to stamp the utensils. Plant markers using paper printouts and a couple coats of sealant from Hello Paper Moon solves that problem. 

Latitude Longitude Sign_1Wonderful latitude and longitude signs by The Concrete Cottage. What a fun way to personalize cities you’ve lived or vacationed in. Check out the full post for a great tutorial on how to make these signs.

Parasol-Party-Lights-2A fun and unique way to use those little drink parasols. Jellyfish Jelly used a string of lights and parasols to create these party lights. Great for an outdoor patio but I love how they look over this bed.

Stromboli[7]This Stromboli by Love and Laundry looks absolutely amazing. Sandwich fixing baked inside bread dough. I’m definitely making this for my family.
