The first item in today’s Etsy Round-up is a great pink desk from HausProud. At $350 it is a leeeetle to expensive for my tastes, but it is a great inspiration piece.  I love the pink paint – it is exactly the same pink as my kitchen! I also love…

I love my new commercial Armstrong tile in our kitchen.  I love that it is retro looking, I love that it is durable and I love the fact that you can pull a tile up and replace it with no real effort if something horrible happens. But what I don’t…

Ok – so I may be completely behind everyone here, but has anyone noticed how awesome vintage sheets are?  I was wandering around in my local Goodwill yesterday, and I stumbled upon these great patterns:   Ummm… yeah. I took a furtive look around me and then grabbed all the sheets…
