Hi friends, I have loads of work to catch up on and wasn’t able to get my DIY together for this week, which means I get to share some of my favorites from around the blogosphere!
Hope you enjoy these! So much talent to be inspired from:)
P.S. I just want to remind you all how much I appreciate your visits, comments, and emails. It really makes me love what I do. It may take me a while to get back to you, but know in the meantime how much I value you! I am much quicker at responding via facebook, twitter, or instagram if you have questions! Also, if you are an email subscriber, you may have noticed a few changes that needed to be updated! Hope you enjoy:)
Before we were dating in college, a small group of us friends would plan study time at Barnes and Noble. It would always involve a lot of laughter and ruckus. I dared Gabe once to take a few books and pretend to trip and fall in front of the middle clerk desk. I cried laughing because he pulled it off quite successfully, and the clerk’s reaction was priceless. Gabe earned major points that day.
We still love to visit used book stores and Barnes and Noble – we both have an appreciation for a good hard copy book, and consider it treasure hunting…
(We had to check the table of contents in Sherlock Holmes collection to make sure it had all the greats before we decided to take it home..)

Trader Joe’s is 30 minutes a way so if we pass it, we simply have to go inside and find loot.
We ended the night with Trader Joe’s potstickers (amazing) and a movie.
The next date is for my birthday this weekend, so he has a surprise up his sleeve.
I originally made this piece above for necklaces (one of my first DIY’s on IHOD!), using a wooden cut from the lumber yard, white paint, and drawer pulls. Since getting a second one, I use this for scarves. This is an easy DIY Scarf or jewelry hanger to attempt yourself!
I use a larger round trey for statement necklaces. Keeps them from being tangled, and its a nice display of color:) This only works for larger necklaces though. Fine necklaces are hung. It would be so easy for me to keep collecting jewelry but I keep a rule to not become excessive. If I receive a new one, I must give one away (usually to sisters:)). A good practice not to be too materialistic. How do you store your jewelry?
*Giveaway planned for today has been moved to July! A few fun ones coming up!
