    But wait??? In that second set, the bag(?) with red flowers? Where is that from?

    And in the third set, the coffee mug/french press thing – that would be perfect for my sister. Where or where can I get one of those?

  2. grace says:


    sorry about that! with all these links sometimes i miss a item or two. they’r e both fixed now :)


  3. Adina says:


    Beautiful! Lots of things I haven’t seen before. I LOVE the purple zinnia plates. All these guides make me want to buy things for myself too!


  4. Can anyone see this wine rack also working to hold magazines and catalogs? Would it be too flimsy?


  5. rebecca says:

    Those tile tattoos are about the neatest thing i’ve ever seen. what a fantastic way to elevate the meager rental apt.

  6. LuLu says:

    Great to see so many birds in your gift guide. I’m lovin’ the birds!

  7. Adina says:


    I think it would work for mags and catalogs…a bottle of wine is pretty heavy, so it should be able to hold them without issue. If you get it and it doesn’t work out, you can always use it for its intended purpose!

  8. Gwen says:

    Another great guide! So much inspiration, so little $$ & so little time. I am in love with those tile tattoos myself. Such a cute idea!

  9. Anne Wong says:

    This is great! I especially love the felt placemats… Thanks Grace!

  10. nene says:

    I made my own tile tattoos using inkjet cling sheets that i printed and then sprayed with a fixative/sealer. It’s fun; you can create whatever you like.

  11. Kareen Anne says:

    Great stuff! This is a very good list! Is the price right on the Come In Go Away mat?? Most sites are selling it for around $25.

  12. wow, that butterfly shadowbox is stunning!
