Redefining Home

As we become increasingly aware of our planet’s fragile condition, it’s heartening to read about the increasing number of sites devoted to reusing, reclaiming and recycling. Today’s find is Redefine Home, which has a cool section devoted to found objects. Each of these one-of-a-kind items has a story, and obviously if you like it, you […]

Here are just a few of the goodies where you can get additional saving, everything from garden furniture to lights, planters and other accessories.

Top Three Thursdays

Look it’s art for your wall! It’s clever storage space for your home! It’s just brilliant, I think, these maze boxes from Kevin Irivin’s Etsy shop. Made from blond maple, these grooved storage are a wonderful combination of art and function. Love that. They have keyhole slots on the back for easy installation and can […]

Candles in the Wind

Candlelight is always the way to go, unless, of course, you’re trying to read or write something. With summer, though, it’s hard to work the candles in the wind bit. Here’s a nice solution from Outer Banks Trading Company. This copy of a West Indies lantern can be placed on the table or hung as […]

Anthropologie Goes Strange

Generally I am a fan of Anthropologie and lust after much of their home goods — I am past their demographic for clothes, but if I were younger, I’d be up for those too — but this chair just seems strange to me. I was looking at their outdoor furniture section when I happened upon […]

Outdoor Lighting

When our daughter got married in our backyard last summer, I realized a number of things I wanted to repeat even without a big celebration. Top was lighting in and around the yard because it just looks cool and brings the outdoors alive in a wonderful way. So I’m always on the lookout for ways […]

Swing Away

There is nothing that invites being slothful more than a hammock. People who own hammocks take naps. They read novels and whatever else they’re interested in IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY! They do not worry about whether or not it’s too early in the day to have a nice cold (alcoholic) drink. I want […]

Top Three Thursdays

Up first on Top Three Thursdays on Etsy is a pillow that I immediately coveted from Swoon Studio’s shop. Love love love the green color and complementary designs. I just think it would be perfect on a porch or to freshen up your family or living room with a lighter summertime look. The two 18- […]
