One of the reasons I love being exposed to blogs is because of the amazing inspiration out there. I stumbled upon a couple of easy breezy ideas for keeping things pretty around the house. I was inspired by two other bloggers. When my friend Emily showed off her wooden bowl for crayons, I knew I had to do the same. I picked up a small salad bowl from Home Goods for only $3.00. It’s perfect because not only can my kiddos see all of their crayons, but it also looks pretty darn cute on the table. It pretty much stays on our table 24/7 so this is a good solution for us. This idea was one that was linked up to my Keep C.A.L.M. and Organize On linky party. So simple and one of those things where you say, “Why didn’t I think of that!” Lura from Domesticability thought of a cute way to store her make-up brushes here. To recreate her idea I used a glass vase I already had and picked up two bags of these little gems from The Dollar Tree. I like the sparkle they add to my countertop. Thank you to Emily and Lura for inspiring me to keep it pretty around here. What about you? Have you recreated anything from the blogosphere or Pinterest lately? The inspiration is everywhere.
