Crates & Pallets In The Home

Most of the year I live in sunny Miami, Florida, but a few years back my parents bought a vacation home on the coast of Maine.  Maine had me at pie and shopping.  As far as shopping goes, Maine has the world’s most incredible junk sales.  And trust me, I revere the word “junk.”  Thrift sales, craft sales, church sales, and garage sales abound.  Sometimes great old stuff even washes up on the shore.  (Sea glass does exist!)  Every house in Maine is decorated with gorgeous old wreckage and salvage pieces, ship’s bows, lobster traps, and the like.  Thus today’s inspiration – indoor decorating with old crates, pallets, stripped doors and frames, wood beams, and the like.  Swoon.

The Gloved Bride

I love modern spins on old classics. My grandmother and great grandmother wore full length satin gloves to their weddings. Madonna brought back the gloved bridal ensemble with her risque performances of “Like A Virgin” in the 80s. This bride took her shot at the fashion do and made it a must in my book. Bridal accessory love.

Why not borrow a vintage set of family gloves for your wedding “something old”?

Friday Link Love

This week has been chaos.  I’ve had a case of the Mondays since … well, Monday.  And it’s now Friday.  My weekend plan is to empty my brain and perfect the art of hanging a spoon on my nose while watching Gilmore Girls reruns.  Introducing … all that I love (at least for this week.)

I’m so taken with these chunky gemstone necklaces.  Snag your very own Mineral Pendant Necklace at UO for $29 (not too shabby!)

I also can’t get over how glam this shade looks on fellow blogger, Cosmi Caroline.  The extraterrestrial shade:  Lime Crime’s Airborne Unicorn Opaque Lipstick.

Baroque picture frame book shelves.  Yes.


And if you think books stink, a book page wreath tutorial.  Kidding.  Don’t you dare tear apart a book.  Okay maybe if you have three copies of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, because you and all of your siblings miraculously lost the copy you used in the 7th grade and your mom was repeatedly forced to buy a brand new copy each August.  And even then, that 3rd copy better be the “politically correct” edited version – because editing old literature is just stupid, so tear away. Too politically incorrect?

I am singing “The Right Brush (baby)” to NKOTB’s “The Right Stuff.”  I’m cool.  Lauren Conrad schools us on tools.

And in honor of my new favorite epic movie, Water For Elephants, I am buying an elephant and perfecting the art of Old Hollywood waves.  (I’m letting my husband know about our new pet elephant while wearing the spoon on my nose.  Comedic relief … works most of the time.)  Back to the waves – let’s learn with Beth of B. Jones Style!
