A house made of pallets

I have never jumped on the pallet wagon. I would like to think it was because I avoid the trendy. However, I squealed like a little girl when I noticed an empty pallet laying in the yard. Where, oh where, did this piece of blank canvas come from??
"Can I have this?"
"What in the hell are you going to do with that?", he replies.
"Do you have any idea all of the amazing things that can be done with this piece of crappy wood??"
So much for seeking out the esoteric.

Since many of you may also be pallet virgins, I have rounded up some cute ideas to wow all your friends with. This is just the beginning of pallet madness though. You can literally find thousands of ways to use this utilitarian object.
Home Depot, be warned.

New Beginnings

There is something very attractive about starting anew. Whether that be January 1st, a new school year, a new job, or even Monday morning, the ability to reflect on what you can change, on what you hope for the future, on the possibilities is quite amazing. I start my new job Monday and I am going to take this as an opportunity to revamp my wardrobe. It's not that it needs replaced, it's just that I need to put a bit more effort into my self. Take some time to do my hair and makeup.....step out of my black and grey box......wear more dresses. Here are some inspiration shots:

Quite possibly the most awesome tote ever.

Where could a librarian wear this? To catalog?

This would be my go to cardigan.
