Brooklyn Nets Playoffs Dish Towel

after the cheering…

after the trash talking…Nate-bashing…Broooooooklyn-chanting…BELIEVE-ing… after whipping the air of the Barclays Center into a frenzy during the all-important game 5 of the playoffs and being worn as Miyagi-esque head bands (yes we did; no I’m not posting evidence)… now serving as dish towels (and a reminder that hope dies last).

Animal Hooks for Kids Room

BEDROOM BASICS: Hooks

This was to be a post about bedroom organization. Per my obsessive drill-down, it became a post about hooks. Just hooks.

Charlotte Moss is to interior design what Martha is to crafting – but without Kmart and catalog tie-ins. She’s written […]
