Things I’m Eyeing

I’m operating on a pretty tight budget right now, having moved (quickly) from an affordable non dog-friendly apartment to an more expensive but incredibly dog-friendly apartment. The trade-off was mostly worth it (close to the park for Hope, more space, better light) but the change in rent cost means I’m window shopping way more than actual shopping for the foreseeable future. That’s ok with me though, because I consider myself the queen of window shopping. I’ve been doing it for years through this blog and truly mean that when I’ve written about something and loved it, virtually, I feel like I’ve actually gotten to already live with it. So for today I’m living vicariously through these little buys: luxe canning jars (I love the shiny brass lids), a classic anchor box and truly gorgeous Japanese candles at Alder & Co. If only I could combine all three for one heck of a coffee table display. That would be one sharp looking (and good smelling) table… xo, grace

I’m going through the same thing right now. Larger rent means tighter wallets! Virtual window-shopping is the best, though. Most of the time, it gives me inspiration to make something similar on my own. :-)

I think there’s a lot to be said about loving something, appreciating it and then being okay with not having it right away…being okay with having enjoyed it for just a moment. Way to go Grace! Wishing you all the best in your new space ;)

So I love love love the top to these glass jars but not the price. There has to be a paint to give the same brassy look. I already have a wealth of vintage jars! Any suggestions for paint color, type, brand?
