I inherited a great vintage suitcase a few months ago and decided to make it into a mini dresser for winter hats and scarves. I had extra sofa legs on hand, so all I needed were some nuts and washers. Check out the final product!
Okay, full disclosure: The original intention for this suitcase was for it to be a cat bed. Sadly, it was not accepted and became a mini dresser.
Did you know that the female seahorse lays the eggs but the male seahorse carries the unborn youngins in his pouch? Seahorses also like to swim in pairs with their tails linked together. Pretty cool. Here is a roundup in homage to this incredible creature.
Make a paper seahorse wall sculpture with a printable PDF pattern.
Or crochet your very own seahorse!
I like this nautical-themed mini dish set.
And here’s the same seahorse design on a canister. Simple but lovely.
Or get this fantastical pillow from Roostery that’s filled with mermaids sleeping on the moon and riding seahorses.
They have lots of color options…
Or adorn yourself with a seahorse pendant necklace cast from an actual dried seahorse.
I stumbled upon this French site that has many old engravings, often in large format and in color. I really like botanical illustrations. Most botanical illustrations are all over Pinterest, but this old image is new to me. The description reads: “Fish color drawing after ‘Universal Dictionary of Natural History’ Atlas Zoology Volume 2 reptiles and fish by C. d’Orbigny – Paris.”
Mix the old with the new with this custom vintage iPhone.
These photos remind me of Grant Woods’ American Gothic oil painting but only in the terms of the framing and farm focus. All of the images featured below were taken (circa early 1940s) by Farm Security Administration photographers tasked with reporting and documenting the plight of poor American farmers. I selected the photos below simply because they are striking.
More info about the FSA photos can be found here andhere.
I would have fared well during Victorian times when pasty complexions were all the rage. I am physically unable to tan. I burn and then freckle. Pale skin has yet to make its comeback, but luckily for me, parasols have!

I love this idea. Never wear a watch again…carry a parasol! Japanese designer Kota Nezu created a parasol with a built-in sun dial. Find out how it works here.
