So much to share this week on our StalkWick Portfolio. I have been playing around with different names for our weekly roundups and I think “StalkWick Portfolio” might stay. It’s a play on version of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women’s imaginary newspaper called the “Pickwick Portfolio“. What do you guys think? Should it stay or should I go back to the drawing board?
I’m happy to report that we did have quite a lovely week full of activities including a wonderful visit by my one only brother, Ellie, a small shopping spree, some garden decorating, and some DIY projects!
1.I had a small shopping spree at Aldo. I was due for a new purse, and I ended up picking up 2 pairs of sunglasses and a necklace. I just couldn’t resist the 2 for $20 deal on the sunglasses and well the necklace was just an added bonus.
2. My mom was bent on getting a mermaid for our poolside garden, and I went on Amazon to see if I could find a decent one. I ended up getting this cute one that looks like it dug itself into the rocks. It is super cute, but the only problem is the size. I thought it would be bigger, but it was actually smaller than I thought. I was a little disappointed because it was suppose to be the last piece to complete that garden area. It still looks good, but I expected it to be a little bigger for the price. What do you guys think?
3. I have been looking for an earring holder to hang some earrings, and I this one below at Ross for 10 bucks! Only problem was that it was black, so I decided to spray paint it gold to go with my overall decor in my jewelry cabinet. I think it came out pretty good!
4. I finally decided to finish my wall art up -cycling project that I wanted to do on the left hand side of my fireplace. I bought some frames at Ikea, and used some pictures I found on the internet, an old picture frame that was left from a set of 3, and a cool gift bag I decided to frame. All I had to do was figure out a good arrangement, so I did my test trail on the floor before they went up. After I was sure of the layout, the hubs put them up using some Velcro mountable tape.
5. Lastly, I found this really cool mug that reminded me of Ellie. He is such a beach lover that I couldn’t resist getting him this mug so he could drink his tea in.
How was your week?
