I turned down $100*.
I had the opportunity to earn some cash by curating a list of 20 items for the home. These items needed to be available online from retailers. It took me a while, but I came up with twenty things, just barely. Except my list wasn't what they were looking for...and they hoped I could provide a list once a month, or every other month. Like a job.
Guys, I know it sounds like easy money, but I rarely shop retail. Not to mention, I am all about getting rid of stuff, so how can I endorse buying more stuff? Just wasn't a good fit.
I like vintage, second-hand deals and making what I already own work for me.
Anyways, this is the list of
Home Depot Mirror, $59.99 // Cheap, we have it in basement bathroom, I could see it over a living room fireplace. I like a bit of black in every room!
H&M Blanket, $30, on sale now // I love afghans. I want a cream one for the living room. Maybe I should buy this now that it's on sale! Shoot, wait, H&M home is still not available in Canada
IKEA Ribba Frame, $19.99 // Square frames seem custom
Crate and Barrel Tray, $51.77 // I have couple vintage metal trays I use to carry food and drinks out to the deck, or bowls of soup into the dining room.
Crate and Barrel Utensil Holder, $19.95 // Sits on my counter. Chubby and plain. Holds a lot!
West Elm Oversize Hammered metal bowl, $52, on sale now // Love this guy on my round dining room table
Target Floral Table Cloth, $16.99 // I would have ordered this tablecloth for Thanksgiving if Target shipped to Canada
Boske Ceramic Sky Planter Small, $43 // Love them!
Pear Jam Jar, Indigo, $29.50 // I have two vintage pear jars, one from Vanves flea in Paris. If this goes on sale I will pick it up!
Moooi Random Light, // First thing you see when you walk in, more or less
DWR White Salt dining chair, $92.65 // Love these chairs. I found vintage versions, but I am half tempted to buy a set of these and forget painting the vintage ones! Unless, of course, I can find one more vintage chair...
Aalto Stools, $275 each // These were a birthday gift. We bought them on promotion, pretty sure.
Pottery Barn Kids Fire Truck Flannel Sheeting, $76 Cdn, on sale now // I ordered two sets of these. Almost time to get the boys set up in the same room!
Dash & Albert Tattersall Navy/Beige Cotton Rug, 6x9, $223 // This rug has been good to us, I would buy another Dash & Albert in a second!
Overstock Diamante Matelasse bedding, King, $160.95 // I have a king quilt on my queen bed, much fuller coverage
Charles Pachter Print, $1650 // I want!!
Zara Home Bone Bowl, $25.90 // I have six bone bowls from a flea market in Malibu, I haven't figured out how to use them, but I love the texture
Staples KIS File Box, $7.49 on sale now // I have 8 of these boxes in the upstairs office closet holding files and photos.
