Milk Glass

Ever since I found some milk glass this past spring I've been on the look out for cute ways to use it/display it. I've also been keeping my eyes open for some other pieces. In all honestly, you really don't have to do much with milk glass, because it's just so darn pretty.

See? Whether it's being used for organizing, flowers, plants, whatever (!)'s pretty.

The piece I picked up had been sitting on the bookcase in our spare room/office for quite some time now. However, a few weeks ago I picked up this little plant {we'll see how long I can keep it living!} and thought it would go perfectly in my milk glass.

I really love how the green & yellow pop out against the white glass. It's still sitting in our spare room/office, but has now found a new home on the desk, and I quite like it. 

Are you a fan of milk glass? What's your favourite way to put it to use? 

PS - there's a peek at the updated memo board {it's finally on the wall}! Many of you on FB & Instagram said you loved the gold, and I've got to admit, I'm liking it more and more!

Not Your Average Bookcase

Rather than using the regular old bookcase, here are a few different ways to consider storing all your reads.

Do you literally have a library? If so, why not try a wall of shelving around a window or door?

Grab a couple {one would do too} of ladders, preferably vintage, and add some wood planks/shelves of your choice across the "steps". Cute, cute, cute!

I love this idea of using picture rails to display books. It looks especially awesome in a kid's space.

Store your books by creating some low shelves under some windows {or along a wall}. Bonus? It can double as a bench!


What are some great out of the ordinary ways you like to store your books? 

Foodie Friday {Margherita Pizza}

It's been a while since I've shared a Foodie Friday post, so today I thought I'd share what we've been enjoying lately. It's simple, very low prep, and delicious! 

What you'll need:

Fresh Tomatoes
Fresh Basil
Naan Bread
Mozzerlla Cheese

To Make:

*These make small personal pizzas {at least with he naan bread we use}, so top with as much or as little ingredients that you like*

1. Place naan bread on cookie sheet or pizza pan {you could cook directly on oven rack if you like}.
2. Top naan bread with pesto.
3. Add shredded mozza cheese & sliced tomatoes.
4. Season with a bit of pepper & pop in the oven for about 15 minutes {or a little longer} to melt cheese & heat.
5. Once removed from oven, top with fresh basil & devour.

Like I said, easy, quick, and oh so delicious.

These have become a go-to this summer because of how fast they can be thrown together. Plus, it's a great way to use up that fresh basil from our herb garden!

Decorating With Driftwood

I've been on the hunt this summer for some driftwood. In particular, I've been wanting to make a sign using driftwood {still looking for the perfect piece to do this, although I may have a candidate!}. A friend of mine was at the beach recently and collected some pieces for me & I can't wait to incorporate them into our home. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with them/where I'm going to put them yet. That being said, I'm sure the pieces will move around though.

Here's a quick glance at my treasured pieces...

There's just something about having driftwood around the house. I love the vibe. Especially this time of year.

It looks great all over the place and can be used as wall art, a coat rack, coffee table decor, a table center piece, you name it. Here are just a few great ideas of how you can incorporate driftwood into the everyday around your home:
