…favorite things friday: trunks

Let’s talk about trunks, Baby.

Some of you may have seen a recent Instagram post about my old suitcases that I stacked to make a mock side table. Whenever I go to a vintage shop I can’t help gravitating towards trunks and old boxes. I think because they are super interesting, but also functional.

If you can’t make it to a market or antique shop, there are so many great options out there now to do this very thing. Here are some examples.

PS – you don’t need to stack the suitcases, you could place once on a foyer table or under a couch or ahem, pew.

…master bedroom redux – full room reveal

Happy-kids-back-to-school-after-spring-break day! I can just imagine all moms out there singing and skipping around the house. I doubt it’s just me. I am clinking my coffee mug to yours! Cheers!

As promised, here is my master bedroom reveal. I love having hardwood in the bedroom. It is a clean look, but also cozy with the area rug and chairs. I no longer have to look at buckled carpet and worry about it getting discolored with wear.

instagram-app-update

Thanks to two of my cute sister in laws, Regina and Shannon, and their motivation to keep Blue Egg current, I have decided to ramp up my Instagram account. (My other SILs are super cute too just not quite as, ahem, young. Ah, to be young and in the know.)

Many of you keep up with me on my website feed and Facebook and I love it! Instagram is a great way to see, well, pretty pictures that inspire me in my daily life. It’s quick and fun.

If you are already in Instagram, search for blueeggbrownnest and follow!

For those that are new to the party, it’s super easy. Go to the app section on your phone and download Instagram. You will see the icon above. Set up an account and look around and play! You can post your own images and follow people. Click the little search button and type blueeggbrownnest to find me!

Here’s a few recents that you will see from me. See you there! xoxo
