Happy List: #34

How is everyone?

I know people who have spent this week either enduring extreme heat or extreme storms. August isn’t messing around!

While over here in Ireland, I’m just wishing our weather would make up its mind!

This week I shared what our first week back in Ireland looked like after a month-long visit to the U.S. I also shared another trash to treasure makeover.

There have been a few things on the internetosphere this week that have peaked my interest. Read on!


COTTAGE PLEASE!

If I ever go missing, you can probably find me in one of these stinking cute cottages in Maine!

There’s 16 of them! I’m dying from the cuteness. Check out The Cottages at Cabot Cove. That doesn’t even sound real!


CURRENCY JEWELRY

Atlanta-based, In God We Must turns coins into jewelry. And no, transforming currency in this way is not illegal.

The story of how this company started in 2014 is pretty neat.


SIMPLE AND SUNNY

The simplicity of this space gives me all the feels.

You need to see the other rooms in this house tour.

GEMSTONE SOAP

If I had any more patience, I might make soaps that look like these.

Detailed directions and more pretty pictures at A Beautiful Mess.


HOW DOES SHE DO IT? 

I can’t even handle how awesome this furniture transformation is!

Kristine at The Painted Hive is a miracle worker.

Plus, she shows you how to do the perforation technique that makes the show-stopping design on this dresser.

Read. Absorb. Become a furniture miracle worker too.


CHERRY GIN RICKEY

I like gin. I like cherries. This sounds like a winning combo to me.

Recipe and plenty of sage advice from Our Salty Kitchen.

IS IT TOO SOON FOR FALL?

Forgive me if it’s too soon for this. BUT! I love the idea of reversible decor.

I could legit say, “no, honey! I don’t have two signs taking up storage space!”

This sign was made by Mollie’s Custom Creations. As far as I can tell, you can contact her on her Facebook page.


DRESSER TO MUDROOM

Say what? Never would I ever think to flip a dresser on its side and turn it into a rockstar storage piece.

And you have to see the sliding rail of hooks. Brilliant!

All the how-to’s at Sawdust 2 Stitches.


EYE CANDY

I just like this photo. It made me smile!

It was taken by the professional photography duo of Jeremy Pawlowski and Lauren Simpson. They run a site called America Y’All and do work for some big brands. Be sure and visit their site for more inspiration!


We have family visiting and we’re doing a lot of exploring this weekend! Lots of pictures to come. Happy Friday, everyone!
