Hump Day Inspiration: Braids & Dumpster Diving

The other day while I was getting out of my car, we have underground parking, I noticed a box full of what looked like a tea set by the dumpster. Let's get real, I would lose my street cred as a crafter if I didn't frequently check out what's bein dumped. And I wouldn't gain any said cred if I didn't frequently take things out the dumpster and into my house. Am I right, or am I right? (my life's motto) Anyway this particular dumpster find has been by far my fav, although there was that ginormous mirror we picked up and have major plans for. I mean, what are these people thinking? Is no one creative? Is no one on Pinterest? A whole box full of cool ceramic mugs and a little pitcher. I have been so inspired lately with people different projects using ceramic paint and stencils to create an Anthro knock off, or a ceramic paint pen to do an awesome design on some mugs. I am super excited to fancify these mugs. I know they're dishwasher proof, since I washed em first thing. Now, let's hope they're oven safe..

Onto the other half our inspiration for the day, braids. Are they going anywhere? Not anytime soon. A braid is def one of my go to hair styles when I haven't washed my hair and I'm heading to the beach or pool. Or grocery store, but whatever. I think the braid is the perfect choice for when I brush out my bed head hair and it looks more like I was struck by lightening than just got out of bed. I like the braid cuz it will contain said craziness, in a super cute way. Since I have layers though, my bangs are too short to be added to a side braid. So I usually put them in a braid of their own and pin it back with a bobby. Hipster hair love...
