I have a bit of a canister obsession. But when they are as cute and useful as these tin chalkboard canisters, how can I help myself? I tend to go for glass canisters, so I can always see what’s inside. However, these handy-dandy chalk labels would do just the trick – plus, I just love the design!

Aren’t these pillows just fantastic? I love how simple and natural botanical throw pillows can be, yet they still pack a heavy stylistic punch. I’ve been searching for the perfect pillow combination for my couch, and these earthy cushions might be just the thing. But which ones should I choose?

Have you ever found yourself with a collection of clothing or knickknacks that you can’t throw away but have absolutely no use for? For me, that collection (one of many, actually) is a colorful assortment of men’s ties given to me by my grandfather. I couldn’t stand to see them go, but since you can only dress up as Avril Lavigne (circa 2002) for so many Halloweens, I was desperate to find a new use for them. Thanks to a brilliant reader suggestion, I began searching for new ways to use old ties. And man, did I find some goodies!

Most of my finds dealt with repurposing ties for jewelry or other accessories, but this imaginative tie wreath from Good Housekeeping would be the perfect craft for anyone (and any season!).

This useful tie clutch would be an ideal project for someone with a few extra ties and some skill with the sewing machine. What a great way to add a masculine print to a feminine look!

There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than some delicious, cold ice cream. It just so happens the time we most want this decadent treat is also the time we most want to fit into our bathing suits. That poses a problem. Luckily, this fantastic Yonanas ice cream maker gives us the taste of ice cream without those pesky excess calories. Just put in frozen bananas or other frozen fruits, and it makes fresh, sweet soft serve. And it’s actually good for you!

The heat is up, the schools are out, and I am so ready for a trip to the beach. Unfortunately, my vacation is still weeks away. At least I can pretend I’m on an island getaway with this unique coastal driftwood spoon set. Maybe I was inspired by Allie’s Driftwood Crafts, but there is something about these spoons that I just adore.

Last Wednesday, I spent all day moving everything I own into my new apartment. Although I loathe moving (my muscles still ache), there’s an air of excitement that comes with knowing you have a fresh, barren space to decorate however you please. As I looked around the blank walls in my new room, I decided I was definitely going to need some new artwork to spice things up. My inner MacGyver knew that with a little Pinterest research and a lot of patience, I could make my own wall art and save some serious moolah. Take a look at my favorite finds:

DIY Ombré Wall Art
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely still a fan of the ombré trend when it’s done this beautifully. This quirky sign would make a bold statement on an otherwise boring wall, and Sarah of Sarah Hearts says it only took 15 minutes to make.

DIY Gold Leaf Monogram
This DIY Gold Leaf Monogram is perfect because it’s just enough bling – it’s not overwhelmingly gaudy but it has enough pizzazz to make an impact. Check out Brittany’s quick and easy tutorial.

These light bulb vases are one of the more perfect decorations I’ve seen in a while. They would look absolutely phenomenal hanging in my kitchen window. I can already picture myself frolicking through the field and picking fresh wildflowers – or at least snipping a few buds from my front yard. Either way, I have no doubt these bulbs will find their way to my home.
