It's the Little Things

Thanks for the sweet words on my outfit yesterday! And the key to my bun staying put? Dirty hair. For reals. Also, several of you asked how I created my Project Gallery. I use InLinkz , but instead of using the 'Link Tool' (like for link parties), use the 'Link Manager.' Once you've uploaded each of your blog links, you create Collections and drag the project to them. After installing the HTML on your blog, it will automatically update each time you add a new link. It sounds confusing, but you'll get the hang of it quickly. I suggest watching the video they have posted, it's very helpful and much better at explaining than I!

Big purchases like this one are exciting, and nauseating all at the same time. There is a lot of pressure when an item carries a big price tag. However, sometimes small purchases can make us just as happy.

On my recent trip to West Elm, I was wooed by their new collection of linens. I mean monogram + stripes?! That's pure bliss.

This little hand towel makes me strangely happy, and I think it completes this corner of the Kitchen. That's a big accomplishment for a $10 rag towel! It really is the little things that bring the biggest joy, isn't it?

I'm becoming one with the Allen wrench and should have these chairs ready to show you next week, and hopefully a Valentine project or two! What are you up to this weekend? Enjoy it, friends!
