So, I have some new little things around the house to show you, but I am going to have to put a few of them off until next week because I didn’t get time to do all the photos I needed (after the whole time consuming ‘iPhone incident’, which ended with me finding hubby’s phone in the car. Yeah.)

But, just for fun I’ll show ya a few things today! I apologize for the poor lighting.

First of all, I was able to hang my new Vintage Key Plate up on my powder room door (because the powder room is “Four” for guests? I think that works, right?)! The cool thing about the way I hung it is once I get sick of being all trendy with my typography, I can easily pull it off the door (I hung it with those Command removable hanger things that stick on but come right off, no nails were needed).

Remember, if you want your own Vintage Key Plate, you can get it from my OpenSky Shop! I LOVE mine!! They are absolutely beautiful.

After being inspired by the HGTV Farmhouse, I decided to hang up my farmhouse style zinc board! I put it near our front closet where my son keeps his backpack. I am going to use it for reminders, such as what is happening at school, so he can make sure he has the right supplies or shoes for the day.  And to remind myself that I am a chaperone for the field trip so I will actually show up for duty. Is it sad that I need a zinc board to remind myself of stuff like that? Yeah. It is.

Have I told you how much I adore this board? The shape is so fun and the weight and feel of zinc is a fun change from the usual chalkboard paint. You can write on it just like a chalkboard. I use chalkboard pens (like Mary Jean does!) but regular chalk works well too and it looks more charming sitting on the ledge.

If you want your own zinc board, you can buy one here at my Shop! And if you order one from me by Sunday night, I have a little something special for ya! Just let me know if you buy one so I can get you your surprise.

I pulled back a little into the entry so you can get your bearings here. It is easy to show only little snippets of things, but I think it is fun to feel like you have actually BEEN at someone’s house because you get to see more of the layout! (And, now you can see that my lantern is still candle-less).

The bathroom door (with the 4 on it), is just around the corner to the right from the entry.

If you kept going past the bathroom towards the big M (I guess I need all those typography things for landmarks so we don’t get lost in our house), you’d be in the breakfast room side of the kitchen. The door to the right of the zinc memo board is the garage. And I am not going to show you the garage. Just because. But if you turned around right now, you’d see this! The entry and the slowly being painted handrails.
