LEIF LOVE

I love shopping for little things that bring joy into my home.  I’ve forever had a knack for gifty items and enjoy finding a quirky or colorful detail to add to an open space.  Leif is a website I frequent for their fun and unique small home accessories.  I’m embracing the “no rules” decor idea by incorporating dinner bowls into my jewelry storage system, pencil jars for hair accessories and pretty magnets for keeping bobby pins in one place.  Thinking outside the box only makes your home more you.

Magazine Holders

To say I get a lot of magazines is an understatement.  They have been a place of inspiration and a pleasure source since before I can remember and they are actually the reason this blog is named “ear-marked”.  I spent hours of my childhood flipping through them, turning down – or ear-marking – pages of things I had to have.

Yes, it’s true that most of these things were never purchased, but in the moment, the possibility seemed real.  What has resulted is a timeline of things I have loved.  A while ago, after realizing going from one end of my apartment to the other was more like swimming through Lucky’s and Elle Decor’s, I decided to invest in a large straw basket and promised myself I would keep my collection to the contents of it.  I started tearing out pages and filing them instead of keeping whole magazines – except for the ones that were so special just could not be thrown away.

Well, my basket looks more like a game of magazine Jenga at this point and is literally about to topple over.  What’s wrong with two baskets anyway?
