I shared that we went to Florida last Friday. Well on our last day, I got a little time to shop and fill my CUP and believe me, it doesn’t take much. Just a couple small things-trinkets get me!
We went and looked at the directory to see the shops I wanted to pop into while we were at Disney Springs. We already knew the girls wanted to go to the Lego Shop. I needed to hit a MAC makeup store. Then I saw that Sugarboo was in there. I have many Sugarboo pieces in our home. So it was a must stop. I tell you what just entering that shop filled my creative soul. I posted on Instagram Stories when I was in there and someone commented “that place is too expensive”. Well, I can see where was coming from- her limits. BUT that is not why we always go into stores. Do you look thru a magazine because you are going to purchase everything?NO. We look for inspiration.
Same idea applies to my blog. We are all here to do small and simple things that lead to great things. This is what makes a house a home. And one way we can do that is by collecting all those small ideas. Do you want see the small things I got?!
HEART MARBLE PLATTER/CUTTING BOARD– As soon as I saw this I had to get it home with us! You can find it HERE. It really makes me so happy and lovey dovey about our kitchen.
BTW- someone asked if I keep all our silverware in this jar, no just THIS gold handled set. BUT if you don’t have a lot of space and need a drawer this idea would work! And when my mom recently visited we stopped into another favorite shop and pick up THIS candle that she was obsessed with “it fills the entire house” she said.
NOTEBOOK- I can’t find the notebook with the perfect quote below but I found an even better option that you can customize your own notebook for even less HERE
ZINK HEART– HERE Just love little pieces like this. Finn can’t break them either, bonus! Finn did dump out this plant on the floor. But I do think this is a family friendly coffee table idea (minus the candle). We are going to work on not dumping out the dirt, he learned with the Christmas tree to just look at the ornaments and not touch, just through encouraging (every time he walked in the room for a couple days:)). So I think we can work on this plant too.
GOLD GLASS– I actually found the little gold cups that I put votives in at Goodwill for$1 and funny thing when I got home I found them HERE in green (no surprise that is where they came from). They remind me of our green cups (that I get asked about all the time).
GEODE- Lola is the one who found this small Geode, she has been studying rocks and minerals and wanted it. I told her I would get it and we would share it. I found THESE mini Geode’s that you can break yourself, I had to order her one! She will LOVE it. Cute Valentine gift if you ask me! (You can find bigger Geodes HERE)
KNOBS– A small simple change that goes along way is new hardware! I found the little gold bunnies on sale HERE I don’t see them anymore but there are a lot of great options! I moved the knobs that were on the piano to the girls dresser. I love just changing out the top two knobs.
CLOTHES– I saw that Free People was at Disney Springs too, so had to pop in. I had some birthday cash waiting to be spent! This is what I picked up…
- That top below HERE (comes in 4 colors) I love that it is really loose and yet also flattering, for sure a favorite!
- I also wore THIS shirt the other day and had so many messages asking where it was from! I have it in cream and a reader actually found it for half off HERE (It fits true to size).
- THIS one too is loose but flattering! I love the sleeves!
After my shopping spree I went though my clothes and donated an equal amount of clothes that I bought. I always do this. One thing in one thing out.
I have a challenge for you on this Friday/weekend. Buy something SMALL this weekend, it can be $1! Pop into a second hand shop, Target, a favorite local shop or order online. Clean up a space and move things around for your small little treasure. See what it does for your mood!
I am going to be back tomorrow to share that fireplace mantle I recently helped a good friend with. I hope you have a wonderful Friday.
PS- If you make my mom’s Artisan Bread Recipe I added the video from my Instagram Stories HERE
