First up, I know the Rafflecopter form from yesterday’s Shabby Apple giveaway wasn’t appearing for the better part of the morning (and I know this because I spent the better part of the morning trying to get it to appear…grrr). But it’s up and working now, so if you left a comment but didn’t click through the form (which is a requirement for entry), be sure do that to make sure your name stays in the hat. I’m so sorry for the confusion!

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk something else fun, kay?

One of my favorite things ever is stumbling across something unexpectedly delightful.

Things like…


A gorgeous vase (in my beloved teal) that I scored at Michael’s for $8.



I like it at least as much as this Anthro version, which costs 2 1/2 times as much.



A solution to my basket conundrum from Monday’s shelf tweaking session that I already had all the materials to make (that never happens).


{Can you tell which movie I was watching as I made these?}

P.S. I’ll show you the final shelf arrangement tomorrow.


Mesmerizing sunsets in shades of inky purple, violet, and gold.

The funky, jewel-toned pages on my beloved classics.



A $2 plate from Goodwill that practically sings.


So, what about you guys? Have you stumbled across anything unexpectedly great lately?


  1. I must be missing something, I don’t see the rafflecopter or how to enter the drawing. I posted a comment but didn’t see how to click through to a form… :S

I love hearing from you guys!
