Definitely need some of these in my house.  I’ve been trying to shop around for unique and fun prints – Etsy’s definitely a major one but I really love these too.  I can’t wait to start properly decorating my house – I need to pull my finger out and get it DONE.  I’ve got swatches blu-tacked everywhere and everytime friends come over they’re like “oh…you still haven’t painted that wall?”.

Since everyone at fashion week is totally going all 80’s revival neon, why not bring a little something neon into your home life too?  Could be just the thing to add a little pop of interest to your casa.

PS.  I’ve done a little blog revamp – you like?  What do you think?  Better or worse?

Did you ever read the Babysitter’s Club series?  I read every single one as a kid…those books are the reason why I am very shortsighted today!  I used to read them in the car, in very questionable lighting, in the dark, over dinner…everywhere I went I would read!

These amazing “safes” totally remind me of Claudia in the BSC series – she would hide her junkfood from her traditional Japanese parents in hollowed-out books just like these!  While I don’t have that problem, having moved out of my parents’ house, I’d probably gift these to someone and put some knick-knacks inside.  This shop even does custom books, so if you’re a creative guy with a bookworm girlfriend, you could get one of these made with her favourite book and pop some (engagement?) bling inside!

Gah, between blogs and Etsy, it’s no wonder I moan that I have no time when I get home from work.  New year’s resolution – better time management skills, I promise.  In the meantime, this Etsy shop, Modish Vintage, should lure you from your productive working days into potential insolvency and bankruptcy.
