Every little thing in place instead of places

31 Dec

Serene recently got this rad Paper towel holder and it got me to thinking again about cannisters, dispensers, napkin holders all that. Here’s some stuff on etsy that’ll help you get started on that New Year’s ‘be more organized’ resolution.

19.00 at FoursquarevintageI tried to own this thing but tragedy pushed back harder than intelligence. I’ve lost my password and cant get it back. Aint that something? You try and get your organization all together and your disoragnization gets in the way of that. Who woulda thunk.

44.00 at HuntandfoundYo I heard you be loosing stuff/like cannisters so I put a cannister in your cannister so your cannisters can be safe. OI. I always mess those up.

Let there be days without papertowels that rolled off the counter onto the floor and sadly torn to shreds by a beloved pet. Let there be days where you know exactly where the plastic wrap is. Let there be LIGHT!!

Around town: Thrifting in Modesto

29 Dec

Sorry this post has gotten to you so late. I am that last minute christmas shopper er maker…I’ve been spending the past two weeks with my husband making and wrapping christmas gifts:

We made pillows. Alright alright. Back to thrifting. So I’ll admit that a lot of the adventures in thrifting are determined by craigslist listings. I’ve seen some sweet stuff for cheap in modesto the past month or so so I figure we should go check it out. See what thrifting is like. This weekend me and my husband also went to Salinas to visit his folks for the holidays. We spent this monday in that bay thrifting. So I’ll be posting two thrifting adventures for this week :] Some of the thrift stores dont have reviews on the interwebs so heres a listing of some in Modesto.

Started off at the goodwill.
