Forget the Easter Basket, Make a Bindle Instead!

Easter is just around the corner, and I thought it would be fun to use some of my recent thrift store finds to give a little twist to the traditional Easter basket. Enter the bindle.

Shared Girls' Room Inspiration

Somebody got big girl beds today! #latergram

The girls officially moved up to big girl beds last week, and along with a trip up to Ikea, ripping out an extra door and a fresh coat of paint (okay my husband and father-in-law did those last couple of things), I've been gathering all sorts of ideas for sprucing up their room. Here are some of my favorites from around the web:

1. Open trinket shelf (isn't this the cutest??) 2. Twin beds in a small room (that's us!) 3. Ikea picture ledges 4. Pajaki chandeliers (and a how-to here

5. Ikea towel rack 6. Little desk for small spaces (and cute blue wardrobe!) 7. Ikea wardrobe with a pop of color (we bought this same wardrobe and I love it!) 8. Ikea wall shelf and desk 9. Riffla basket by Ikea (you know I have a basket problem, right?) 10. Floor book shelves (drooling over the construction of these!)

You can find all of these ideas over on my Sisters, Sisters Pinterest board (along with more ideas as I hoard them). 

Do your little ones share a room? Anyone else moving up to big-kid beds? I'd love to see your favorite room ideas--feel free to share them in the comments below!

I'm an avid thrifter all year long, but something about spring (or at least the beginnings of it) makes me even more eager to go hunting for a good find. Oftentimes I'll come across several of the same item which individually may not seem special, but en masse you have an instant collection to show off. Today I've gathered seven things to keep your eye out for on your next trip to the thrift store.

Everyday Bento Review and Giveaway

I have had the pleasure of knowing my friend Wendy Copley of Wendolonia for several years now, in fact she was among the first blogs I started following! If you don't already know Wendy, she is a crafter extraordinaire. From sewing, scrapbooking, cooking, and general crafty awesomeness, this lady does it all--and with a wonderful sense of humor, too.

Today I'm excited to share her brand-new bento book Everyday Bento: 50 Cute and Yummy Lunches to Go* . And I have a giveaway copy to share! 

Thrifty Home Tour | Hallway

Thrifty Home Tour | Hallway

I first fell in love with thrift stores when I was in middle school. I loved that I could buy almost an entire new-to-me wardrobe for around $30. I also began collecting knick-knacks to decorate the walls of my wild teenage bedroom (I had a big think for 60's and 70's zodiac ephemera). I've carried on both the clothes and home decor thrift store shopping well into adulthood, and I thought I'd start a series of posts sharing how I've used my favorite thrifty bits in our home. Today we'll start with the hallway (because it was the cleanest!).
