Holiday Origami

As promised, here’s some photos of how the origami ornaments turned out! I had the day off today, so I was very motivated to fold some paper! I went to my local dollar store and picked up some origami paper and I was on my way to awesomeness! Instructions for these can be found on Poppytalk.

Summer 2011 Patio Inspiration

Well it’s offical, today is the first day of summer. Although i’ll be honest it doesn’t feel like summer in this city, the weather is chilly and it’s been pretty rainy.

Anyway i’ve been getting into the frame of mind for summer by thinking about my patio. It’s small, but I still love spending time on it in the summer. We Barbeque and eat dinner out there when it’s really warm out. It’s in need of a face lift, but not in a big way. So here’s a few items i’ve picked out that may be fun to add into the mix and brighten things up. (The Bodum BBQ is just a dream, but it’s it cute??)

Lemonade decanter: West Elm, Floor pillows: Urban Outfitters, Green BBQ: Bodum, Lanterns: Homesense, Chain lighting: West Elm Modern Lighting, Wood floor tiles: ikea

Some other random inspiration, my apologies, but I didn’t keep track of where these images came from, a lot of them are from Helen Enkelt , I take no credit for them, I just hope to inspire your outdoor spaces as well as my own. Happy Summer!
