inspiration: pt. 4

this post is about cool finds. not things that i could recreate per-say, but things that i definitely use (or could use!)

first up: wallpapers for your desktop, ipad or ipod/iphone. these are the cutest i have found... so far. :) there are some for guys as well. 


these labels are adorable! i downloaded one design and am planning on using them for future gifts/letters i send to people. i found them through this blog, which i found through carrie's blog. :D they are meant for valentines day, but some of them can be adapted to any occasion.


last year, i ordered these icecream cups for a party i had and everyone loved them! i love the vintage adorableness that they have. 


i made paper lanterns for the aforesaid party and later hung them in my room. this was my inspiration . :) below are the lanterns that i made.


the last idea is one that i really want to implement in my room and probably will (which is why it's not in yesterday's post. :D) i would paint chalkboard paint behind my bed and make it like a half headboard because half of behind my bed is my window. if that's confuses you, it's okay. i'm not quite sure i get it either. :p


so there are some things that i have been able to use and really enjoy (and one that i hope to enjoy!)

which ones would you do or not do and what are some things that you have found and used?

I'm sooo hanging those lanterns up at my wedding and taking a picture like that!! Very nice! And woah that window bedroom thing left me way behind haha...but it would be really cool to hand a giant chalkboard there and then draw on it with chalk whenever you felt like it haha. Oh and I love those ice cream thingies...:)

ahhh, i like all of these!
you prolly know about all of these things from seeing them in my house buuuut, here it goes!
we have a chalkboard door, which is also magnetic. deff want to copy this one for my own kids in my own house someday...
and i have a set of four square boards in my room. one is a dry erase board, the other is a patterned, and two are cork-boards.
and i think you've *inspired* me to take pictures of these things and put them on my own blog... yay! :)
