Guys I have a problem. I look at cabins in the woods all the time.
I will never move to one and its sorta a way to torment my soul.
I love it though. Love me some cabins in the woods.

If there is any of you who fancy cabin living too this one is pretty great! I dunno. Maybe you’ll move here and live my dreams. Send me photos so I can live through you. Thats not creepy ok.

I dont know if you guys remember that one time I showed you this expensive bootiful cat bed from Etsy? Eh? Eh?
…OK.
Well. Heres that same cat bed. Someone is selling it for a discount sans pillow cushion. I hope that doesnt mean its bad or something. I imagine if your cat was too fancy for it you could just use it to prop up your little feeties or something?
Or put a plant on it. That is usually my solution for all complicated furniture solutions. CAN MY FEET GO HERE. CAN I PUT PLANT HERE?!
Oh yes. OK. Then I will purchase.

That price is for the pair. Seller states that these rugs are from pottery barn. I dont know if that means they are some good quality Kilim, so maybe give it a once over if thats something you are concerned about.

GIT’R’DONE: Alexander Girard’s paper girl garland

11 Dec

Paper+Dolls+Wall+Art+by+Alexander+Girard+for+Urban+OutfittersHere is an easy holiday garland you can make out of Girard’s popular paper girl design.

DSC_0047First get your image to the size you like and print it out on printer paper. Not too small – because it’ll be tough to cut.
I decided to go with 5 inches. Don’t worry if you get it a lil’ pixelated on the print-out –  iz just going to be used as a stencil.

DSC_0048Cut out the image, or slice out using an X-acto knife.

DSC_0055Trace the image onto the back of the paper of your choice. Wrapping paper, craft paper, whatever. Just make sure it’s a little bit taller than your tracing (in my case, approximately 7″) and as long as you want your garland to be, around 20-30″ unless your paper is so thick that it would be difficult to cut through.
