mason jar soap dispenser

cutest thing i've seen in awhile, the mason jar soap dispenser. there are two etsy shops that carry them: midwest finds and post road vintage. if you're feeling crafty you can even make one yourself, tutorial here. no more tacky plastic soap dispensers!

reusable paper towels

i'm always looking for ways to save money and be a little more eco-friendly. many of you might already have alternatives for paper towels but we don't yet. i found this etsy shop that sells paper towel replacements called bird-e towels. you won't have to buy paper towels again! just toss these in the laundry and keep reusing them. for more reusable paper towels click here.

loup charmant

while browsing the interwebs last night i came across this dress from loup charmant and almost cried. it was just the other day that i was blabbing about finding that special dream dress. i went from "ooh! i think i just found my dress!" two seconds later... "noo! why do i have to be so poor!?" maybe they'll still have it in a few months. *crosses fingers*

happy weekend!

my wonderful aunt gave me permission to plant a vegetable garden in her backyard this year! so this weekend i plan on prepping the soil. my grandpa thinks 20 x 20' will be good enough for my first time. ooh i can't wait! i just need to make some final decisions on what i want to plant. this amazing book has been helping me a ton! what are you guys doing this weekend?

dream dress

will i ever find the white gauze dress of my dreams? with 3/4 sleeves? that seems to be my problem. none have 3/4 sleeves. or the hem is too short. ooh it's killing me! summer is so close and i will die if i have to wear jeans everyday, DIE!
