Indoor Garden

Lawn ornaments will fit right in with these in-the-garden treasures.

I love this garden box from sewinline for holding small linens like cloth napkins

Bring in the outdoors with a metal flower urn from Chantclairinteriors

I would hang this rustic apple picker from shop20max on the wall above framed prints

Cast iron wall hanging from ImSoVintage will make any room feel like the garden

A grass seed sack would make a unique pillow cover (from FreeYourLove)

Add a grouping of vintage misters to your shelves (from OldGreenCanoe)

A sundial mixed with small bottles and flowers would make a special centerpiece (from FrogGoesToMarket)

What's New

Country Living's March 2011 issue highlights lawn ornaments as the "it" vintage item to collect now.  I found a lot of great new friends.

Isn't this bunny from paprikarose charming?

And this frog from bellalulu needs a nice home.

A squirrel from Ficurinia would like to share his acorn

An adorable duckling from savvycityfarmer just swam into your life

Decorating with Math

Confession: I like math.  Luckily, there are some stylish ways to incorporate math into your everyday life.

This eco-friendly, affordable numbers pillow from NestaHome works for every sofa

Typewriter cuff-links from HauteKeys express your subtle dorkiness

Hang up your report card with fabric magnets from prettyoriginals

Hang this vintage compass from ifindubuy grouped with these technical prints from Holcroft

The next time your friends come over, forget Apples to Apples or Bananagrams.  They'll love The Game of Creative Mathematics from becaruns

Green Gear

It's getting (slightly) warmer out, and I found some grass green favorites just in time for spring...

This 1940s bullseye quilt top from fabriquefantastique is ready for some DIY love

Kick off the spring with a dinner party, complete with 12 striped napkins from allthingscrafty

You'll have to clean up sometime, why not use cotton dishclothes from Easy123?

This clothesline winder from VoulezVousVintage would look great hung on the wall next to framed prints

Speaking of prints... this airy fern print from Finerareprints would be perfect

Why are all jewelry boxes so girly? I'd rather use these 1930s metal tool boxes from kelleystreetvintage

Inspiration: William Shatner's Equine Office

American Pickers decorated William Shatner's equine-theme country home.  What would I suggest for William Shatner?

Bright Idea

If I buy one more dirty wooden vintage wonder, my fiance will take away my Etsy privileges.  What better way to re-direct my energy than a treasure chest of objects found for you to take home instead?
