This little boat is destined for Jayden's Neverland Big Boy Room!

…Around Town…

So, since the design by-week (the week with no payday) is over I was around town looking for the best way to spend this week’s budget. Well, I soon realized that I had never set a budget, so I’d better not buy anything quite yet. If it’s between an end table and diapers, I’d choose diapers any day! So, I had to settle for taking pictures and storing them up for later. I’ll  show you a peek of all the things I saw and drooled over!

First, this little sailboat — perfect for the “Neverland Big Boy’s Room” we are creating for Jayden

Neverland Sailboat
Up on a shelf– and out to sea! A treasure to hold, a joy to see! This little wooden sailboat couldn’t be cuter!

Here’s that little guy now, who will be trying to play with destroy the boat….

Solid wood toys are where its at when it comes to this tough guy.
play break!

Then I ran across this cute little sign on a piece of driftwood!

I snagged it just in time for National Boss Day. Perfect pairing to a bottle of wine and a basket of chocolates! No, we’re not sucking up…we REALLY like our boss at work! Plus, who wouldn’t dish out 7 bucks for this little hand-painted  doo-dad?

She loved it! Hung it up right in the door jamb!

Deeper into this fun store Inlet Queens, I found this little ottoman!

What do I need an ottoman for? A time-out chair? A yoga prop? A colorful addition to our boring beige living room? You need to be asking yourself what don’t I need an ottoman for?

Apple green ottoman!
Low-Lying Cutie alert!

On my way out I almost missed this “Market Special”!

These two end tables were just $25 each! A beautiful weathered chartreuse with a creamy center on top. Just gorgeous. I will be doing some serious measuring when I get home. We need some fun color STAT!

Inlet Queens Market special end tables -- break the boring beige!
This fresh pop could be just what I need…if they’re not too high.

That’s all for now, but don’t worry — I’ll be (window) shopping like a maniac all weekend. I’ve decided to finish the nailhead shelves this weekend and look for some ways to bring in color to the living room too. I hope the thrift gods are happy this weekend.



Storefront inspiration!


What a lively and funky”window dressing”, ha! It makes me want to be creative with all this packing material we have left over!
