    Know When to Fold

    Every time summer approaches, I get the hankering to decorate with yellow. This year is no different. So on the second day of officially warm weather here in Dallas, I am seriously contemplating the 45 minute drive to Frisco to buy a set of these Nisse folding chairs from Ikea. At $13 a piece, it is well worth the gas money to make the trip.

    By the way, if you’re looking for more affordable folding furniture, check out this post from ModFruGal.

    “Nicked Bike” Bowl On Etsy

    I am madly in love with this pasta bowl by May Luk on Etsy. $38 is a bit more than I would normally spend on something like this, but the design is just absolutely fabulous.

    MIO Eco-Friendly Gardening Stuff

    Target just came out with a line of MIO eco-friendly gardening gear designed to get your garden in shape while helping to protec the Earth. Makes sense to me.

    The coolest items include this 100% organic cotton hammock, $59; and this garden compost bin, $99.

    Tree Garden Curtains From Urban Outfitters

    I love the light and airy, yet still colorful look these Tree Garden Curtains have from Urban Outfitters. $24-$30? Even better.

    Origami Shells

    I haven’t really gotten into all of the ocean-inspired decor I’ve seen at places like Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma over the last few months. But, I really like these origami-inspired ceramic shells from West Elm.

    Re-imagined with hard edges, the shells look wonderfully modern.

    Origami shells, $16 each.

    In the Key of Awesome

    These prints by artist Evan B. Harris would make a perfect, if somewhat quirky, pair. “Garden Grows Piano Keys” and “Salt & Sea Piano Keys” are available at Charmingwall, along with a lot of other cool prints priced at $20.

    Japanese House For Cats

    I like the simplicity and clean lines of this house, featured on Modern Cat. The best part, however, is the fact that the design is not just aimed at pleasing people, but also at pleasing the cats in the house. My cats would think they had died and gone to heaven if they had a house like this.
