random stuff ... ♥

here's a few pretty things i found at Goodwill last week :)

my girls have claimed these as their new breakfast dishes ♥
they were $2 per set!

i just couldn't pass these up ... i'm a sucker for anything this pretty teal color
i hung them on a rod i have above my counter with some others i love

if you follow me on Instagram you already saw some of these snapshots
but i've been thinking on how i'm so thankful for my kitchen ...
sounds silly i know
but i really love my kitchen
and i'm grateful to my husband who listened to all the ideas i had
and fashioned it after my heart's desire

i especially love the little things ...
you know, the things that make it feel like home

since school starts in 2 days
my mind has been on getting back into the swing of things
on all the things i want to accomplish
on the holidays ...
 i know, the holidays, but guys ... 
so i'm determined to try and get ahead of the game this year
and i really wanted to start in August, so i'm already behind!
i stumbled upon this cute little blog
where she talks about a "September Sort-it"
and she made a list of 30 things she really wanted to get done in the next month
i was motivated to do the same 
but by the time i got to #20 i started to panic
so i stopped there and thought even if i get half of these done
i'll be happy :)

i just listed this in the shop too :)
it a cutie pie cloud garland hung from a tiny hanger (heehee :)

i'll be back this week with some more random stuff

♥ much love to you


  1. I think I was beginning to panic just reading your list of 20! I did tidy up my fabric stash yesterday though..one gold star to me!

  2. Oh my goodness, those dishes are all so ADORABLE! I wish I could bumped into pretties like that at my thrift stores! I love those colors too.. and I LOVE dandelions! :) Good find!

  3. Considering I am a list maker this is so very perfect. I love the idea of seeing progress. Best to you as you complete your sweet list. I am off to make mine. Love your sweet clouds...smiles...Renee

  4. This is a great idea! I am always making lists. Now, just to get something finally crossed off of them. :) I love those teal cups you found at Goodwill. Exactly the color I want to incorporate into my kitchen!

  5. I have both sets of the dishes - love them!!!

  6. Those cups are adorable, i can't believe you got them at goodwill!

  7. Jamie-Your things are just darling. That set of dishes you show? I think it came in oatmeal or cereal in the 50's. I remember my Mom had a complete set and I am pretty sure it was a bonus with the product. I haven't seen it in years- very sweet! Have a great day- xo Diana

  8. Love it all! I am friends with Erin Grab. and found your site through her fb page. I love your etsy shop too!

    Love, Traci @ Ordinary Inspirations

  18. Jaime, I'm totally IN LOVE with your handwriting! I had to look closely to see if you had used a font or not in your picture. Wow. That's really you, huh? Well, I see that others are loving your dishes and your list, but I'm sayin your beautiful handwriting wins for me! Love your happy blog!
