How To Start A Collection

Happy Thursday! Erica Reitman, The Design Ninja Extraordinaire, is stopping over today to talk about how to start a collection. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a ton…trophies, indigo, navy books, vintage barware…errrrmmmm *cough* chairs…ya let’s not go there, but sometimes it all goes in a box. I never know what to do with it all. Anyhoo, no matter what it is that you’re drawn to, Erica’s here to tell you to snap that shiz up and put it on display. Now excuse me while I go start my “Buy Me This” Pinterest board. 

Needlepoints with exotic animal imagery, baskets of all shapes and sizes, large ashtrays, iced tea spoons, rocks glasses, vintage matchbooks…these are just a few of the bizarro things I’ve decided to collect over the years.

Basement Update — Drywall and Karndean Flooring

Thankfully things are really starting to come together on the basement. Like, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel, and it isn’t fogged up with construction dust. All in all, Gerry and his crew have made the whole process smooth sailing, but I can officially say drywalling is the worst. Word to the wise — the smartest thing we did was shrink wrapping everything exposed in the basement. The sofa, photo booth, pool table, coffee table…every single thing that was left out, was shrink wrapped, covered in tarps, and sealed up tight.

Behind The Curtain — I Have This Thing With Pink

Do you ever wonder what I do all day long? Like what I REALLY do? You know I’m all about home decor, but do I just stare at shelfies all day long? Ummmm, yes, I’ll admit, sometimes I do. But I do other cool stuff as well. For instance, did you know I have another Instagram account called I Have This Thing With Pink (IHTTWP)? Did you know I just built a crazy little stop motion movie for Zevia and just wrapped a shoot for Method?

Another Bathroom Renovation?

Someone call for help because I’m certifiably insane. Yep, you read that right. Potty Paradise looked so incredible, we decided to renovate another bathroom in the new house. Eeeeep! But I swear I have a really good excuse for the added destruction. You already know we are in the process of fixing the basement after The Great Flood of 2016, but there was one small problem. The bathroom down there wasn’t destroyed by water. Well that is disappointing.
