knobs

I recently had a dresser melt down. I am so ready for a new piece furniture, yet not ready to make the purchase and also not ready to tackle a large painting project. On an excursion to my local Anthropologie, I came across the most unique drawer pulls {in the sales section} that I knew would hold me over on a new piece of furniture! And when I do purchase a new piece and I can always re-use the knobs on other pieces and cabinets too!

Below are a few current drawer pulls on the sales rack! {All only $2.95, originally $8-10} *check your local store for in-store options as well!

running on empty

Perfume bottle empty? No need to throw away the bottle. Just clean it out really well {soap and water does the trick} and re-use as a bud vase. I recently finished a bottle of perfume I purchased on a vacation in San Francisco and did not want to part ways with the bottle. I knew it would work perfect for smaller flowers! It now serves as a little reminder {souvenir} of the great trip I had!

friday finds… beverage bottles

On a recent date night the restaurant we choose served water from similar bottles below {minus the stickers}. It made for a nice presentation on the table.  I came across the versions below and absolutely love them {and only $10.95}!

These would also make for a great {and simple} DIY.  Glass bottles from your local craft store and water-resistant stickers would do the trick {or even a little chalkboard paint, as demonstrated here}.

chalk it up

Who doesn’t love chalk? Takes me back to when I was a kid! I recently had a little fun with chalkboard paint. I collected glass items from around the house and purchased a few as well, and added a personalized touch with chalkboard paint! Such an easy project! I highly encourage you to give it a try as well!

 -Chalk works best on glass, not plastic.

friday finds {stamped}

I came across these precious stamps {from eat | pray | create} and they are just the perfect thing to keep on hand. You can use them on notes, party favors, invitations, fabric… come to think of it pretty much anything! And the price of the stamps is hard to beat, for such a personalized touch! Best part you can always change up the look with different color ink.

their way & the save way…

suede booties

I have been eyeing these amazing suede booties from Tory Burch, yet have not been able to wrap my mind around the price tag. On a recent stop at Old Navy I found a similar look! And, I won’t feel guilty if the light colored suede gets a little dirty. Now all I need is cooler temperature and for the leaves to change!

{Old Navy, desert wedge, $36.94}
