Aug31 The Original Pin Board 2012
What did we do before Pinterest allowed us to save every pretty thing we found in a place we could always visit for inspiration? I like to think cork boards were the original homes for such lovelies.
Just take a look at all of these real life inspiration boards. I can’t think of a better way to stay in the mood while working than this!
Aug29 Grey’s guide to good cheese 2012
Recently I was loitering in the cheese section at Whole Foods when I overhead a man ask, “Excuse me, where is your Brie?”
The Whole Foods clerk, looking puzzled, responded, “They’re all right here,” as he pointed to an enormous case of what would look like twenty different cheeses to the untrained eye.
The poor guy was blindsided by fancy cheese. I imagine his wife sent him with a list and he was suddenly wishing it said Velveeta instead.
With that, I decided I would spare you all the trouble and create Grey’s Guide to Good Cheese. These are my five favorite cheeses that will take you beyond cheddar and jack, and will open the door to a whole new section of Whole Foods you never dared to enter before.
Grab some wine and enjoy the cheese!

Aug23 DIY: Gold Studded Tray 2012
You guys, I can’t even handle the internet lately. So many pretty things to see, so little time!
Kelly at Fabulous K created this amazing DIY Gold Studded Tray, and I’m obsessed. For less than $15 and just a few minutes, you can have a great accessory. It would be perfect as a jewelry holder, as seen below, or even on an end table holding a stack of magazines. Then I’d also make one for my desk to hold all of the odds and ends that find their way there. Being organized can be sparkly, too!
Read below to see what Kelly had to say about the project!
I started with a small $6 acrylic tray from The Container Store. At my local craft store, I found large gold upholstery tacks for $3/pack (for this project I needed 2 packages.) I love that they look a little beaten up, like old brass would. Since these were tacks, I cut off the pointed end to make them flat. (I’m sure with some research you can easily find already-flat versions on the internet.)
Project Tips: Clean up the hot glue strands as you go. They really stick to the acrylic. Also, be sure to space out the studs before gluing to make sure they’re evenly placed. Once they’re on, they’re not coming off!

Obviously, there are so many other pretty things to see on this blog. Head over now, thank us later.
