My husband often has to wear a tie to work. Lately, he has been saying he would like to try a bow tie.
But what kind?
For his birthday in February, I bought him this wooden bow tie from Two Guys Bow Ties. It is the coolest. Thing. Ever.
The bow tie I purchased is called The Phloyd.
One of the owners of the shop has a wife who blogs at Kara Pasley Designs. She used to work at Anthropologie creating amazing displays. Now she has her own design company with her husband. I think her style is so cool.
I had the bow tie engraved on the back with a special saying only known to the two of us.
He has not worn it yet. But it is a beautiful wearable message from me.
It’s The Little Things: a sentimental art accessory.
Have you seen these before? Aren’t they the coolest? I think they would be so neat in those vintage weddings that are so popular now.
When we built our pool two years ago, I needed to find furniture to fill the spaces. But outdoor furniture is very expensive. I looked everywhere. I tried Costco. I had purchased our other outdoor sectional through them the year before. But that had been a great price, because it was discontinued. I could not find the deal I wanted the next year.
So, I checked craigslist. And I found a sectional with a matching giant ottoman that could make up into a huge outdoor bed.
Yes, outdoor bed. The ottoman fits perfectly into the couch. Having no need for an outdoor bed that could fit twelve (imagine the fun stories this piece could tell), we separated the two pieces into two separate areas around the pool. They came with blue cushions. I was doing a blue color scheme, so it was perfect.
But the fabric has not held up so well. Even though we put it in storage in the winter. So, I am going to try and revive it. Thank you, Teresa, for the suggestions. This is what it looks like for now.
It is the only thing I have ever purchased on Craigslist. Go big! My sweet dad went and picked it up for me. Thanks daddy!
I am always searching Craigslist for certain items. Shhhh… I am not telling what. I’ll let you know if I ever get them. I got beat out on a spectacular item by one hour, two weeks ago.
Have you purchased anything from Craigslist? What was it?
