Pretty Pieces

Happy Hump Day!!

As our apartment is slowly (but not so surely) coming together, I am finding pieces that I absolutely love, the pieces that really just make me happy to look at.

I mentioned in another post how I've been sort of unhappy with our living situation, while I'm trying to find happiness in the smallest things, I've discovered how nice it is to have additions to our home that I adore. So, here are some of my favorite pieces (some on my wish list) that bring me joy!

1. Trays. I'm a future tray hoarder. When my mountain of trays collapse on me, someone please retrieve my body, or just send me snacks.
Lovely Bee Tray

Bedside Tray

2. Painted Furniture (I recently painted a small bedside table Tiffany Blue- I can't wait to share it!)

3. Fabric Headboards. The hubs and I are about to embark on making one of these babies- I'm so glad that the lovely Allie has already done a tutorial on how she did hers!

4. Candles. With fall on its way I am wasting no time busting out my pumpkin spice candles! 

Tell me- what are some of the "little things" that bring you joy! 




  1. I love all of these things in this post! I am also trying to convince my husband that we should make a fabric headboard so please share all about it! Maybe how the DIY process is but also how you convinced him this would be a good idea, and not a lot of work for him and a lot of smiling and pointing from you or um I mean me! =)

    1. Oh my word, I totally will! The hubs was fairly easy to convince but I'll share my secrets in a post!

  2. I am super excited about pumpkin candles! And how adorable are those headboards?! Praying for you that peace comes your way! Maybe some snail mail can cheer you up. ;)

    1. Yessss, I have burned my pumpkin candle for like a 2 weeks solid, they smell so good! Thank you so much for the prayers, I can't tell you how much I appreciate them! Oh, and you have no idea how much I LOVE snail mail!!
