  1. Something Pink For A Girl’s Bedroom

    February 22, 2011 by barbara

    I was looking for diet supplements when my cousin called and asked if I have any ideas where to find pink item for her 6 year old daughter.  She is planning to reorganize the room and her daughter loves pink.  I went online to check out Organize.com and for some great storage ideas.  What’s great about them is that they are in pink.  Just absolutely perfect for my cousin’s daughter.   These lovely organizers are a great addition to the bedroom or playroom.

  9. Rustic Display Box

    I love the idea of taking old items especially those that are bound for the trash bins being remaked into new items.  Vintage inspired crafts and recycled items are great items for decorating the home.   Besides reducing our carbon footprint, using recycled items is a way to give a new dimension to the beauty of your home.  I really like this lovely Rustic Display Box from Mothology.com.  Made from recycled pine, this rustic cubby is great for displaying the precious photos or mementos and when placed at the entryway, you can even use it to hold your keys, blackberry or spare change.
