It’s Friday, High-Five!

Is it Friday already? Wow this week flew by! It maybe because this week is the start of winter break for my kids and they only had three days of school. No school means no deadlines for carpool mom and no lunches to pack so I am happy to take a few days vacation from that, high-five. No deadlines also meant I had time to complete a few of those nagging projects that just needed a little time to get done. With a few projects under my belt I don’t feel at all guilty about taking today off. Instead of chores, I have plans to drive to Charlotte for the Metrolina Antique & Vintage Market (a little me time) and then maybe a visit to some of my Charlotte favorites like Modern Fabrics, and Mid Century Slavage. Hopefully, I’ll find a few treasures, high-five to that!

Here are a few more high-fives for the week…


1.This week I ran across Nick and Amber Will’s blog Wills Casa for the fist time, the picture that caught my eye was their dining room but I quickly learned there was no need to there, check out the full home tour for more amazingly beautiful spaces.

2. Architecture students at Rural Studio, Auburn University’s design-build program, have figured out how to you design a home that someone living below the poverty line can afford, but that anyone would want—while also providing a living wage for the local construction team that builds it. I’d take one of these!

3. This Ikea DALFRED bar stools hack, this little DIY might be the perfect replacement the traditional bar stools in my kitchen.

4. I’m crushing on the Greek key table lamp, I think the new master bedroom design might need these!

5.Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. I love the that this celebrates the flaw rather than disguising it. Now you can buy an at home kit from Humade to DIY you own Kintsugi.

Have a great weekend,




  1. Oh those chairs are amazing! 😀

    I am wondering how those IKEA bar-stools look in person? Hmmmm.

    • I actually went to Ikea yesterday to have a looked at them and they look nice. They sell them in solid black so this make over was just painting a few accent pieces.

  3. Thank you Maggie for including us!! I would totally take one of those homes too!! So inspiring to see people thinking creatively about housing problems and well just problems in general!
