camp cot

My friend Jane...
I could go on and on about 
everything she bakes + cooks + makes.
She has the best hair.
She has 3 great kids + a cool husband.
Her house is cozy and bright.
Jane said I could share her latest greatest idea.
She wanted a place to take a nap outside...
she stumbled upon this camp cot from Walmart.
Online, the cot is $33.88 + free shipping.
I love it and would love one for our backyard.
It's so fab with her ikea pillows!
I love Jane.  
She is the best.

mi casa room for child

The things I adore about this child's room:
the brown brick colored wall + the white brick wall
the silver baskets under the bed
the distressed white floor
the pinky floral bedding
the huge window
the sheepy carpet

the best matchsticks

Directly from Jen Pearson's etsy shop:

"Designed by Jen Pearson, the Reclaimed Apothecary Matchstick Bottles 
have been recycled and re-purposed as functional match "boxes". 
Pearson etched the bottom of each jar to create a strike-able surface. 
This is sustainable product design at its best. 
Is this art or functional design? Both?"

I say BOTH!
I do have this little bottle of matches on my mantle.
I love shaking the match out and striking the glass bottom.
Buy yourself or your best friend one here.
