Cute Finds!

I’m going to start off our conversation today with something that has nothing to do with home decor.  In fact, it has nothing to do with a home at all.  I went to my hairstylist yesterday and she told me something that I just can’t seem to get out of my mind.  Being that I was short on time, I mentioned to her that it wouldn’t be necessary to blow dry my hair.  She looked at me and said, “But you have long hairWon’t you get mildew“?   WHAT?   Where would I get mildew?  On my hair?  I have seriously never heard such a thing.  She continued to tell me that some of her clients with long hair, if clipped up while wet, will get mildew and can cause an awful smell.  I told her that as far as I knew, that had never happened to me.  In fact, I rarely ever use a blow dryer on my hair and have found the opposite to be true – it smells better.  Of course, as soon as I got home, I asked my husband if my hair had ever smelled unusual.  Thankfully, he said “No”.  Have you ever heard or experienced something like this?

Alright, on to the actual topic of this post – cute finds.  Here are some of my finds for this week…

Small box

I keep both of my daughters socks in a fabric box on top of their dresser because many times we can go through a few pair in a day.  Plus, I hate having to dig in a drawer for them.  However,  their socks have been getting all mixed up especially when I am in a rush.  I needed something to separate the toddler socks from the baby socks.  I found this cute little decorative box at Target and bought a few.  I put all of the baby socks in these boxes and lined them up against my fabric box.  All of my kids socks are still in the same place but now separated.  The use for these little boxes is endless.  The cost – $1 each.

Oven Mit

Our last oven mitt was used so much that a huge hole formed in it.  Despite the hole, we would still use it and burn the tips of our fingers.  Stupid, isn’t it?  Well, finally I found a cute oven mitt at JoAnn Fabrics.  Our fingertips are wiggling “Thank you“.  The cost – $2.50.

Ikea Light

I was in need of a floor lamp and found one I liked at Ikea.  However, the color of the lamp shade was a little too close to the color of the walls and therefore needed some contrast.  So I mixed up some paint, added water to thin it out, and painted the lamp shade.  Time it took to paint – 15 minutes.  The cost – $19.99.

Computer Cart

This was probably my best and most needed buy.  Prior to purchasing this computer cart, I was using a really awful looking food tray.  It was so small that there was only space for the laptop, a mouse, and maybe a small drinking glass.  But all that aside, the worst thing about my food tray was that it would tip over easily sending my poor laptop flying.  I came across this clearance roll around cart at Target.  Now I can easily move my station around the house and have plenty of space for my drink, magazines, phone, and my dinner.  The cost – $27.98.
