Weekend Inspiration


Happy Friday! Aside from making pompom earrings, something I’ve been working on this week is adding a shop section to this site, with a curated selection of products. Everything is either stuff I own and use, or wish I owned. The shop commission will be a way to help buy the bills, and bring you more DIYs. It’s also linked on the sidebar and top menu, if you ever want to check it out.

A simple storage DIY that packs a punch (so easy you might not even need to translate the site.)

Whoa, this super-cool art looks like giant daubs of paint, but you’ll be surprised to find out how it’s actually made. Some people are so talented!

Make some cute tropical leaf trinket dishes.

Eeeek, the seafoam-gradient chairs at this bar are too good. Adding it to my must-visit list for the next time I’m in Seattle.

What a cool DIY eye trivet (you may need to translate this one.)

I’d gladly drink one of these this weekend.

DIY Pompom Earrings

After seeing a similar pair of pompom earrings that didn’t come in colors I’d wear, I decided to make a pair of my own. I already had the brass tubing left over from previous projects like my himmeli gems and himmeli diamond plant holder, so all I needed was the pompoms. While you can make your DIY pompom earrings in any color you want, I decided to go with black, because it’s classic, looks great with brass, and it’s the color I wear the most other than gray.

Veggie Sushi Bagels

If a veggie sushi roll and a bagel got together and had a baby (don’t think about this too much or it gets weird), it would be this veggie sushi bagel. Topped with wasabi cashew cream cheese, avocado, cucumber, seaweed, and pickled carrots, you get the flavors of sushi without the hassle. Plus, bagels.

Ireland

Photo from my trip to Ireland. See more on Instagram.

Having just gotten back from Ireland on Wednesday night, I’m going to be spending a lot of time this weekend trying to re-adjust and re-teach my brain when to sleep. Jetlag is making everything just a bit fuzzy, so it’s harder to catch up on all of the things I need to get done. This post did give me the perfect excuse to find cool stuff I’ve missed online in the past week, though.

What a fun mountain shelf project.

Wow, hard to believe that you can make this round wood mirror yourself.

A cute DIY for cactus fans. No green thumb required!

Get a jump on fall fashion by making these easy brass tassel earrings. (I also have a tutorial for brass tassel earrings, but these are a different take on the idea.)

This chili lime and sea salt watermelon sounds interesting and delicious. I want to try making a popsicle version!

Having just enjoyed the floral-patterned wallpapers of Ireland, I’m perfectly primed to love Anthropologie’s Liberty collaboration. Are you into it?
