Last Week’s Loves – January 13th to 19th, 2014

 Good Morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I spent mine painting (or re-painting I should say) my kitchen/dining room table (I will share this debacle soon) and searching/shopping for things I need for my place (dining chairs, a rug, a mirror).  No luck finding what I need, but it was still fun exploring.  Now, since it is Monday, today I’m sharing some of my loves from the blogging world last week.

 1. A handy post from Decor8 on “20 hard to kill houseplants”.  I would say I have a pretty green thumb but my apartment doesn’t get much light so I find that many plants I have don’t do well. I basically have greenhouse at work (due to uncomfortably often uncomfortably warm conditions and big windows), but I miss the greenery at home.  I’ll have to try some of these and see if they will do better.

 2. This post over at Simple Dwellings alerted me to this cool way to get custom patterned wrapping paper through Pattern Pod and Spoonflower.

3. This delicious looking recipe for Roma Style Bacon and Egg Pasta Carbonara from my friends at Life Over Easy. Y.U.M.

4. January: the month of organizing.  Need some help organizing your small pantry?  Jen over at Rambling Renovators provided some good tips in this post.

Have a great day!


Signature- new


  1. I too have very few houseplants in my home due to lack of light. But I bought a fiddle leaf fig (jumped on the bandwagon) and so far it is surviving! It was only $10 at Home Depot!

  2. Thanks so much for including me in your post!! I also need plant advice, since the plants I try to keep in my house never make it. I also love the small pantry idea! 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week!
