    Fairytale Weekend

    I’m off to my brother’s wedding, so it’s only appropriate that I run across this beautiful Slow White collection by Dutch designer, Bo Reudler.

    Each piece is crafted from tree branches.

    Etsy Find: Cool Table

    This is a really neat table at a good price from Junior Allen & Co. on Etsy. I really like the heavily distressed pine finish on it. Go check it out!

    Pinch of Salt

    There’s no danger of falling victim to the old “loosen the shaker lid” trick with these salt and pepper bowls from Perch.

    It also doesn’t hurt that they are absolutely beautiful.


    Tiny Basket Bowls, $26 each.

    In Tandem

    Bicycles make for great art. There’s just something about all the gears and spokes that lends itself to bold graphic designs.

    This four-canvas print is actually from the new Pottery Barn catalog. It’s 96″x48″ and costs just $279. Not bad.

    Mad About Mushrooms

    I’ve been seeing a lot of really cool decorative mushrooms lately. From Target to Etsy, they’re popping up everywhere (see, I made a fungus joke).

    If you’re looking for an overview of some of the really spectacular specimens, check out this post from A Mad Tea Party With Alis.

    Market Jars

    West Elm has some new sale items up, which include these ceramic Market Jars ($20-$35).

    I think they’d look great in the kitchen. Maybe sitting on open shelves against a chalkboard wall like this.

    She’s a…Wall Shelf.

    This lady isn’t built like a brick house, but she is quite lovely and holds up to 10lbs of books, knick-knacks, or whatever.

    Aphrodite Shelf, $54
