Inspired by: SUNSHINE {Yellow Kitchen Walls!}

I am taking a little break away with my family soaking in some much needed sunshine and relaxation! I’m so excited to have a break. But I haven’t forgotten about YOU, so I thought I’d leave you this lovely yellow kitchen to brighten your day! Yellow walls aren’t quite the same as feeling the warm sun on your face, I know, but almost? I’ll share photos soon of my fun in the sun, but for now you’ll have to settle for the yellow room.

But before you go, link up what you were inspired by this week!

Enjoy the links! I’m off to soak in the rays.

Unique Ideas: Vintage Number Keyplates

Unique Ideas: Vintage Number Keyplates

Do you ever see something so lovely that you just know you have to have it?

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the Anthropologie-ish Vintage Key plates that I am head over heels in love with (from my Shop). Well I just happened to notice that Cake Vintage also has another version of their vintage keyplates that have numbers on them! NUMBERS! As soon as I saw those, I was smitten all over again. Could they be any more awesome? I think not.

The plates are actually described as being house numbers (and oh how unique and adorable they would be on your door, mail box or front porch!), but I think there are probably dozens of other creative ways to use them inside the house too. Numbers are EVERYWHERE these days!

These amazing vintage pieces are little works of art — they would be awesome mixed in with frames on a photo wall, fashioned into towel hooks for the kids’ towels or even put on the backs of chairs for a charming update to your old dining chairs.

Could you put on your creative thinking cap on and help me think of more ideas for these?

I know you all will think of a bazillion more ideas than I will! So, what do you think? What would you use these oh-so-unique-and-anthropologie-ish keyplates for?


And because I love these so much I was able to work out an amazing deal that I am super excited about — for the next two days only if you buy two or more of these beauties from my OpenSky shop, you will get FREE SHIPPING! Woot! The only catch is I can only sell 50 keyplates with free shipping, so if you want the deal don’t delay or you’ll be too late. Just warning you.

Don’t forget to share in the comments today your ideas for how these could be used, oh creative friends in blogland…
