Say Hello to my Little Friend!

This lil wooden mannequin was a necessary purchase. No, I’m not doing any life drawing anytime soon – that class was just intense. I just remember my mom having multiple of these little dudes and playing with them when i was a kiddo. I saw him at ikea this weekend for about 4 bucks and he just HAD to come home with me. So into my awkwardly large ikea shopping bag he went. He has landed right on my desk. I think he likes to take care of my pens for me.

He also likes to hand me things like scissors. Hes pretty strong for a little dude.

And he’s been making friends really quickly. He’s definitely bonded with my chinese lion bookend….

Yes i know im a geek. Anyway, lots of fun entertainment and all for just a few bucks! I thought about painting him a fun color or even staining him, but for now i like the light natural wood. Now i just need to figure out what the heck im going to name him. Of course, woody was my first thought. which is terrible… so we’re still working on it. Any votes?

Midnight Pinning

Ok, so i thought id post what images ive been drooling over these days….

Oh man, i am so in love with these tables… Youve got function, comfort and storage! Doesnt this space just look cozy? Thank the beautiful Jane over at ModernJaneDesign for the lovely image.

How about a wonderful Ikea hack!

Wow! i love this… beautiful way to hide a not so beautiful printer. Run over to PB&JStories for the full run down. This shot made me run straight to Craigstlist to look for a good piece for my office… no luck yet.

Garden for my apartment? Yes please…

Oh my goodness, im in love with this outdoor garden. Im pretty sure its perfect for an apartment. I’ve been dreaming of starting my own apartment sized veggie garden. Maybe i could hack or track down something similar and get started! How lovely would that be to just walk out onto your porch for some fresh carrots and peas?! Too bad i still have a black thumb. One step at a time. This beaut was found over at Flor e Ser.
