I thought I would start sharing more of my product finds here on my blog. I'm constantly pinning to Pinterest but don't often share much of it here. I tend to pin in themes, usually unplanned. I'll see a pattern of similar colors, imagery, etc start to form in my Pinterest feed. For years I use to create mood and style boards of trends when I worked for Hallmark. It's something I absolutely love doing but don't usually have the time for. I plan to change that because they are huge sources of inspiration for me and I haven't been feeling the most creative lately. 

First up are some skull related products I've found over the last few days while hunting for Halloween inspiration. Hope you enjoy! All products have a link.

Leave me a comment of any products or subjects you might want to see and I'll add it to my list! Have a wonderful day!

Happy October! I can't believe how fast this year is going. October is my favorite month so I'm going to do my best to get a few Halloween posts up. 

I love hunting for cool products and art so when I found Josh Ln's Nuclear Citizens artwork I kind of fell in love. Like most, I grew up with the Simpsons and they have been a part of my life since 1987 when they appeared on the Tracey Ullman Show. The Simpsons were some of the first characters I would draw on everything. I even painted a giant Bart for an art contest in elementary school but was disqualified because I didn't create the character. I was in 4th grade, I just wanted to draw Bart Simpson! I actually still have the painting I did, I'll see if I can find it.

Okay, so back to this illustration, it's very Treehouse of Horror in feeling which I love so I though it would be perfect for Halloween. I loved the look of the overall printed shirt but hadn't ordered a shirt from Society6 before so I wasn't sure how well it was going to print. Unfortunately my first shirt arrived with some printing errors I just couldn't ignore. You have to be aware when printing these kinds of shirts that there will be some imperfections but there were too many for me to ignore but Society6 will re print and ship you out a new order free of change if you are unhappy! Thankfully my next shirt looked much better and I'm pretty happy with the quality. 

Josh has other products available with this print so be sure to check them out! Have a wonderful week!

As you know we are currently working on our home and will be renovating more areas as soon as we can. One that we definitely would like to update is our kitchen. Unfortunately it's not an option just yet but as soon as we are able, there will be some changes made. Nothing too drastic but upgrades need to be made. Our appliances are on the list to replace and I'm always on the lookout for unique products. One of my favorites on our wish list is retro inspired refrigerator. One company I love is Big Chill. They have a huge selection of custom color options which is awesome for someone like me that has to match everything! I recently partnered with BigChill to share their very cool products. If you're in the market for appliances or just want to dream up colorful kitchen ideas, go check them out! Also be sure to check out my Pinterest for other retro home ideas.

"The fact that most families spend the greatest part of their day together in the kitchen proves how vital a part it plays in the household. The most well known tenant of every family kitchen, the refrigerator, will always tell a story of its owner’s if we give it enough attention. The time of simple iceboxes has long passed and newer refrigerators have become so diverse in their designs that there is one for everyone’s taste. have been compiling all the different faces of refrigerators in order to recreate a classic refrigerator that could fit in the modern kitchen. Let us show you the different designs that represented breakthroughs in refrigerator design history and you can tell us about the one that you consider."

Have a great evening!
