Friday Five

Well, it's the last Friday in June.  It seems like this summer is just passing us by.  We're headed out of town again this weekend so I don't see any projects going down.  I've tried to do a few things here and there to keep me from totally going stir crazy.  I have to be doing something all the time.  Ask my husband.  I tend to be a busy body.

1) With Target's outdoor clearance happening right now, I was able to get this outdoor furniture set for cheap.  $212 to be exact.  That's cheaper than the the regular price of the loveseat alone.  The pieces in this set were marked down 50% with the exception of the table.  It was marked down 70%.  I used the Cartwheel deal that gave me an additional 10% and then 5% with my Redcard.  I stopped in yesterday to grab a few pillows and there wasn't much left so hurry in if you want to get anything.
 

2) I absolutely love this black and white boys room.  I usually love color in a room but this palette was done so well.  Maybe the next room for one of my kids will be black and white.


3) I told you about Apartment Therapy's Small Cool Contest a few weeks back.  They have announced the winners.  For the United States, this 350 square foot apartment owned by a couple in Brooklyn won.  They really got a lot of wow in such a tiny space.


The international winner was this 947 square foot home in Croatia.  The whole home was done in black and white with pops of color.
 

4) I received my new Canon Rebel camera last week and have reading so many great photography sites.  I've really been sucked into this one.  There are so many cool things I can do with this camera and I'm excited to learn how.  If you have any camera tips and tricks, send them my way!


5) I use Picmonkey to edit my photos because it's so easy.  I haven't had the time to sit down and learn Photoshop.  Seems a little too complicated.  Recently they added a feature where you can upload and use your own fonts.  Picmonkey's selection is limited.  I have saved so many pages of fonts and now I can use them.
 

Happy Weekend everyone!  Enjoy the last one of June.  Where is summer going?

  1. Wow - amazing deal on that furniture score - post pics of it all put together with pillows and such! I ordered a new camera, too, but mine is a Canon point and shoot. Can't wait to have some decent pics for my blog posts...(:
