Minted Now Sells Fabric!!

Online site Minted who is best known for their invitations and paper products is now selling fabric by the yard!  What makes Minted unique is that it is a marketplace of different artists.  Invitations, artwork, and fabric are all created by different, independent artists.  In looking at the fabric and artwork, they have artists located in my city and cities all over the Golden State.  It is an amazing way to support local artists.

Here are some of my favorites in their fabric collection.

Stay tuned as I hope to post soon about Minted”s line of home decor, including baby decor and holiday decor!






Literal Trash to Treasure

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had an amazing weekend.  I was so lucky to enjoy a girls spa weekend in Lake Tahoe for my birthday.

I also had a chance to swing by a Homegoods on my way home.  I apparently feel the need to stop at every Homegoods I drive by!  I found this amazing black and white marble garbage can on clearance for only $10.  It is pure marble and weighs about 50 pounds.


I had no idea where I would put it, but I loved it.  When I got it home, I decided it would be a lovely container for flowers.  Here is what I did with it.  I love the way it looks with hydrangeas and I think it would look even more stunning with white hydrangeas.

I think it has a modern and chic Kelly Wearstler vibe to it.  Below are two fabrics from her line and I think my little vase (“trash can”) has a similar style and mood.

I figure I can always use it later for some other purpose or as an actual garbage can.

What do you think?  Have you ever repurposed an object for a totally different use?

Linking up to Thrifty Thursday.  Head on over to check out the inspiration!!

Designer Spotlight: Caitlin Wilson Textiles

I have a slight pillow obsession and in fact have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to pillows!  It is such an easy way to change-up the feel of a space.  I started noticing that a ton of pictures I was pinning had these modern and fresh pillows made out of Caitlin Wilson Textiles.  She has such an amazing take on patterns and colors.  I love the Tribeca Collection for the patterns and the Gold Collection for its edgy and glamorous feel!  See how her pillows are used in the spaces below.
