Besides today being the first day of a new month, it's also the return of Lovely Links - my regular Friday post! It went on hiatus during my 31 Days series, and I'm so glad to see it back. I love scouring the web to find awesome things to share with you each week. There's a good mix of projects, organization ideas and articles in today's edition, so grab your hot beverage of choice and read awhile...
1 | First up, more art. Edie is a beautiful writer and this post is no exception! I especially like this: "All of life is art. Embrace it with full abandon."
2 | It is waaay too early for Christmas stuff in my opinion, but this wreath from Craftberry Bush? Amazing. Love. Can't wait to try it.
3 | Brilliant and yum are the two words I have for this caramel apple bar. It's a perfect dessert idea for a fall get-together (and a whole lot less messy than trying to eat a whole, unsliced caramel apple!)
4 | I haven't had a chance to look through a ton of the 31 Days series quite yet, but there is one I got totally hooked on and looked forward to reading every day: 31 Days to Shopping Goodwill Better from Dear Mushka. I love the thrill of the hunt at thrift stores, and this series is a great intro to how to shop at a thrift store. If you're not a thrift store shopper now, you might be after reading this series!
5 | I've always got my eye out for well designed small spaces, and this cute studio apartment is a winner in my book! I'm so impressed with how functional and beautiful Lauren made her 250 square foot apartment.
6 | Need a versatile organizing container? Try this $3.00 version from IKEA (it's part of the Antonius line). Look how many ways you could use it!
7 | Sarah M. Dorsey's gold pharmacy lamp makeover is oh so lovely. She used a special artist's spray paint to get that pretty gold color. I'm putting it on my list of things to try some day...
8 | Lastly, I'm totally smitten with this West Elm-knockoff DIY herringbone mirror Jackie did. Isn't it purdy?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
