Stuff I Love Sunday

So, today is a busy day in the Artsy Family.  Hubby is giving the message in church this morning and I’m singing with the worship team.  Which means I have to be there at 8 AM to practice.  Yawn.  I don’t do mornings well.  Anyway, I don’t have a project to share today, but I thought I’d share with you some “Stuff  I Love” at the moment…

1. My new lamp!
Remember the night table I redid?  Remember how our old floral touch lamp on top of it had to go?  Well, take a look at this fabulous lamp I got for $19.99 at Target the other day!  Here’s the coolest part…it has a patterned liner.  Which means from the outside, when it’s not lit, it looks like a white shade, but when lit, you see the pattern!  Too cool!  And look, it’s a perfect match!

2. Little Crafter’s impeccable sense of style.
The other day, while walking through Target, he spotted these red shose and just had to have them.  At first, I was trying to talk him into something more neutral, then I looked down at my own yellow flip flops and thought, “Who am I to discourage statement shoes?!”  Kid’s got style.

3. The “Flat Me” Project
A few weeks ago, I mentioned the fun summer project my friend Andie over at Crayon Freckles organized.  The kids participating made flat versions of themselves to send around the group so that each “host” could take photos of it in their favorite fun places.  Guess where we took our first flat guest…

4. Homemade Iced Chai Lattes
A few weeks ago, I noticed this chai concentrate in my local Starbucks and decided to give it a try.  All you do is mix it with milk, add ice, and poof, you have a homemade iced chai latte!  The whole box costs $4.95, and it lasts me about a week…which is way cheaper than buying one in the cafe everyday.  I make myself one every day in my Tervis tumbler and enjoy it while I blog and LC naps!  Ahhh, best time of the day!

5. My Tervis Tumbler
Thinking about my chai lattes made me think about my Tervis and how much I love it.  Every day.  The whole reason I got one was because my friend April asked me to go to the store in Myrtle Beach for her and pick a few up for her kids when we were on vacation last summer.  Not only did we end up with hers, LC and I each got one too, and let me tell you they are worth every penny.  Seriously.  They keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold and they’re guaranteed for life.  They clean like a dream in the dishwasher too.  Love.  The one on the left is the one I have.  The one on the right is on my Christmas list!  {Keep your anti-Raven sentiments to yourself, Darby Hawley!}

6. My new nail polish

    I love my Tervis tumbler too! In fact I am drinking a lemonade out of it right now. They even have them in Fiesta ware which I use exclusively! :-)

    I literally just laughed out loud! Sorry to bash on your team! I too have a tumbler and it’s the Steelers, so I guess we’re all entitled to our teams. I’ll try to be nicer :-)

    That lamp matches your new table perfectly!
