Getting Glittery in the Weekend Rally
I feel like an angler fish every time I walk by the Martha Stewart paint aisle at Michaels. I don’t know about you, but at my local store, there’s a little row of half-spheres fastened to the wall, each painted with a different finish of Martha’s craft paint. One of them is painted with glitter paint in “Antique Silver” and I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s just so… glittery. I’m telling you. Angler fish.
I finally dove in and bought some of the paint recently (for a Halloween project I’m going to post next week) and I love it. LOVE. IT. I want to paint everything in the house in silver glitter. Bacon the dog is not amused.
Stuff I did when I wasn’t here:
- Formal Fringe’s Chicken and Waffles Cupcakes were featured on Bon Appetit. Way cool!
- Where to Find the Coolest Wallpaper Art for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch / Apartment Therapy
- Color Code Your White Apple Cords with Perler Beads / Apartment Therapy
- A store profile on an Etsy seller that makes home decor from vintage audio equipment. JT Baldwin’s Vintage Audio Decor / Apartment Therapy
And now for some of my favorite stuff on the web:
Best of Food: Caramel Apple Grilled Cheese
I think the combination of Apples and Brie cheese is what makes me crave this salty-sweet-snacky sandwich.
Best of Parties: Hot Chocolate Party
I can’t think of anything that says “welcome” better than a spread like this.
Best of DIY: Chalkboard Notebook
Chalkboard Paint + Cheap Composition Book = Adorable Note-Taking
Best of Style: Neutral Nails with Glitter
It’s already got me thinking about New Year’s Eve!
Best of Travel: Colorful Copenhagen
So jealous of the obnoxiously pink hotel room Amanda (of Kevin & Amanda) crashed in in Copenhagen.
