I'm back from my honeymoon, and let me just say this: Maui is absolutely beautiful and it was truly, truly difficult to leave. I will post some photos soon, but for now I have the winner of the giveaway!
Jamie, please email me (email@example.com) your mailing address and I will get the prints sent off to you!

To celebrate my honeymoon I'm giving away a 9-piece Paris postcard set from Little Brown Pen! Ever since I stumbled across their Etsy shop back in April/May I have fallen in love with so many of their photos and I just know that you all will as well!
Good luck! Aloha!

My history of travel is a short one. Cuba. A jaunt to New York City. Edinburgh, Scotland and a few visits to Las Vegas before moving here in January 2011. There is much of the world I have not seen.

Last week my husband came home from work, showed me a simple plastic garbage can and asked "what do you think of this?" I will admit that I got a little too excited over something so simple, but the ideas were running around rampant in my head. "Oh yeah, we can use that. I'll spray paint it... Ooh, maybe with black stripes!" See. Excited.
I'm sure that some people would ask why I even bothered to go through this when I could just buy a new one. Well, my answer to that would be twofold: (1) We are a throw-away society and I don't like to contribute to that any more than possible and (2) because I love a good revival project. And maybe (3) because I secretly want to incorporate black and white stripes into the house.
I forgot to take a photo of the trash can before I started working on it, but you can get an idea from this photo, after I taped off the stripes.
The paint was definitely more of a dark charcoal, metallic gray than black but I love the outcome.
All in all I love the result and I feel better knowing that I didn't add to the already rampant pile of garbage in the world, and it only cost me $4.50 for the spray paint.
I must say that this project has got me really excited about fixing up everyday, ordinary items in the house and giving them a new life! I'm looking forward to seeing what I come up with next!
