I love Martha Stewart.com's great idea to use a premade plate rack as a child's bookshelf. DD would be able to see all the books we had out on display (we have far, far too many books. But there is no such thing, so we must have the perfect amount.) and wouldn't have to yoink them all off the shelves to figure out which book she wanted. Now I just need to find a plate rack somewhere!
Speaking of things I need to find... I have been doing some replanting. I have inherited some sad looking plants in some sadlooking pots that used to belong to my DH's Oma. I'm trying to bring them back to life instead of just abandoning them, so don't make fun, they're sad enough already.
Two of the pots, though, I am absolutely in love with - these little white ceramic ones. Too cute. I think I shall start hunting and collecting white ceramic pots. Or just invest in some glossy white spraypaint, ohoho...
And yes, I know, you are absolutely in love with how I am using a mini screwdriver and a plastic knife to hold that poor plant up until it takes root properly in this pot. Tres chique!
(the adorable tin planter-thingy that says Family on it is from Michaels, a steal for around $15!)
