What’s new around our place? Other than loads of green pollen on everything, naturally.
Herbs as “floral” arrangements. Loved this cilantro centerpiece! Much cheaper than flowers too.
Before we had a man in a sombrero at the foot of our basement stairs.
After a modern globe! Mazen loves to stare at it every time we pass by.
[Please don’t tell YHL that the the stairs and ceiling are off center with the gallery wall. We are not handy enough to figure that one out!]
I bought this pretty spring plate + bowl at Pier 1. Love that store!
Have I mentioned how much we love our new porch rug? I should have gotten one last year! This guy came from Overstock.com.
I must profess my love for this new Electrolux cordless vacuum I bought. It was recommended as the top cordless in Real Simple so of course I went and bought it that day. I swipe it around my house daily after dinner to suck up all the day’s crumbs. It works really well – over area rugs, on hardwoods and perhaps most fun of all: a hand vacuum pops out for tight spots or furniture. I’ve been cleaning our car regularly with it too. Best of all it was only $80!
New uses for old things: using a toothbrush (hand-me-down of course) to clean flower scum out of a Ball-jar-turned-vase.
And finally, our new doormat from The Company Store. I can’t tell you how much this brightens up our porch!
FYI, nothing is sponsored in this post. These are just items I’ve found and purchased myself!
