Everyday Pretty

Lately I’ve been working on incorporating some of these beautiful and inspiring ideas I see all over the blogosphere into my actual life. Sometimes it’s easy to just get my fill of pretty things in the virtual world, rather than pursuing infusing my own life with beauty on a daily basis. It’s sort of a practice what you preach kind of thing.

Anyhow, this inspiration board has a few ideas that I really love, each which represent something fairly easy that you could do to touch up your space. First up, I love the ice tea display from Sweet Paul. What I love most is the mint, all bunched up together. Mint is so refreshing and a nice addition to your iced tea. It takes only an extra dollar or two to buy a bunch, and with all the leftover leaves, bundle them together with a piece of twine for an instant centerpiece on your summer table.

The next image from 100 Layer Cake is a table with a plank running down the center. What a creative idea, if you’ve got something like that laying around your backyard or your garage! Also, note the branches in the vase at the bottom left from Apartment Therapy. An eye catching centerpiece is usually as easy as running out to your front yard with a pair of clippers and an eye for a few small tree branches! The last picture from Green Wedding Shoes is a little more high maintenance, but I do adore old letterpress blocks. Whenever I’m at the flea market, I’m on the hunt for more. What a fun sweet little addition to your home!

Zara

Have you seen this season of Zara? Um… super cute!

Zara also has a home line, but alas, if you live in the U.S., it’s not yet available. Let’s salivate anyway, shall we?

Who could we bombard with emails to get availablity over here?

Glassware

I LOVE vintage glassware like these ones, from YAVAglass. And then I realized these are more than just vintage glasses. They’re made from recycled bottles. You’ll feel earth friendly when you purchase a set, so there’s less guilt involved!!

Ith

I think my love would like these napkins. He’s a tall Irish man with secret red hair (the red shows through in just the right light) and a penchant for Irish whiskey. These white linen napkins say “ith” on them, which is Irish for “eat”. How cute is that?
