Recycled Scraps Never Looked So Good

I’m loving this brightly woven stuff from Viva Terra.  They explain that this is called Indian Chindi, where you take remnants and weave them together…a kind of recycling.  I would LOVE to learn how to do this!  But for now I’ll just take that stool.

What Time Is It?

We have a big red wall clock in our kitchen that seems to be the only clock I look at during the day when I want to know what time it is.  Not that there isn’t a million other clocks to look at like on the microwave or oven or my cell phone or the TiVo.  But for some reason this clock is big and it catches my eye.  These clocks also caught my eye…do you guys have wall clocks in your home?

How Do You Spell Awesome?

I love all the different wall letters you can buy now.  I used some different ones in my son’s room inspired by this post, settling on a couple from Urban Outfitters and several Anthropologie ones–I did his first/middle/last initials above his dresser with those.

But just the endless possibilities you can come up with… spelling out a last name, maybe doing a lovebirds one in your bedroom of yours and your significant other’s first initials connected by an “&” you can also find these days in abundance.  Whatever your idea, you are sure to find the style you need to match your decor!  And with the ones on Etsy, you can customize to your heart’s delight with fonts and paint and what have you.
