You all know we love a good Anthropologie knockoff around here – so a couple of days ago when I was browsing online I came across this mirror. Oh I definitely need that. Hold the presses – did that say $498??? Huh. We can do better than that. :)

Enameled Vintage Keys DIY

Enameled Vintage Keys DIY When I was a kid my mom used red fingernail polish and painted the first initial of our last name to identify things we had, especially on stuff we took camping or our Tupperware and Corningware dishes.

She also used fingernail polish to identify keys.
UPDATE: For those following a link directly to this post, you can find pictures of the entire nursery HERE UPDATE: I recently found out the owner of the bed that inspired mine, check out her incredible site HERE When we began planning the nursery I really wanted a spot I could read with our kids and snuggle with them. Since I won’t be working as much, I have great hopes that maybe every once and a while I could cuddle down for a nap with one of them. So in working on the nursery, I began working on a ‘reading bed’ for us. Granted this will be a great bed for naps and for kids, but it is not designed to be an adult bed. I was inspired by this picture and then made it my own. pallet reading bed for the nursery

Holder for Charging Cell Phone (made from lotion bottle)

My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords.

Needless to say, those phone cords seem to be everywhere…..and are generally in the way and hanging all over the floor. (Okay, and how about when you’re in a hotel or visiting family/friends.

DIY Zipper Headband

I guess this is a week of headbands. ;) Have you ever stopped to think about what a cool gadget the zipper is? You can close things with one hand, they make a funny noise, they have "teeth"... Zippers are such a fun material to use in crafty things, and I can't believe that I never thought to wear one as a headband before. (I did make shoe flowers out of zippers a couple years ago, but then I've also tried to make everything into a flower.) :) What you need to make a zipper headband:

I keep an eReader, a water bottle, an MP3 player, a case for my glasses, and several other necessities next to the bed, all of which have cluttered my night table to the point where I can’t fit anything else on it. That’s where the Bedpack comes in. This handy little pack hangs off the side of the bed giving you more storage for notebooks, medicine, or anything else you might need to keep next to the bed. Between the Bedpack and your night table, you should finally be able to keep everything you need next to the bed. When You Run Out Of Room In Your Night Table Get A Bedpack
