CAMP declutter – Catch-All Basket

I have a thing for piles! Piles of paper, piles of books, piles of projects. You name it; I’ve had a pile of it. In my attempt to cull and make pretty (CAMP) the small places I am always looking for a simple solution for a cluttered spot. I mentioned that I’d be working on my sink cabinet this week, well, that project has grown. Redoing that cabinet now includes the two kitchen cabinets and my pantry. It’s all very exciting, I’ll reveal it next week. So for this week, I have a quick fix for us. I was tidying up the dining room this morning, I grimaced at the overflowing papers, that seems to live on a bar stool in my dining room. That’s when I noticed a basket from HomeGoods. There it was, in the corner, just 18″ away. DUH!   I bought this covered basket ($8.99) for the bathroom earlier this month, but it was too big, and I planned to return it. Glad I didn’t!

Light up the living room

I’ve been looking for a stylish new floor lamp for the living room since last winter. I want to replace the cheap torchiere floor lamp from a big box hardware store behind my favorite chair.

With one off to college in 2 months, spending that kind of money just isn’t in the budget. I also love this one that I found on the Crate and Barrel website; I like that it looks a little industrial.

Personal Shopper…

Sometimes you just have to dip into your own stock and gift yourself. Since Modern June began over 9 years ago, I’ve only made and/or carried things that I’ve wanted or needed. That couldn’t be more true with the new RICE DK goods that I’m selling at modernjune.com! I’ve been a massive fan of the Danish housewares company for years and I’m honored to be selling their melamine cups and bowls! I just had to swipe all three of the latte cups (with matching lids, of course), four bowls and a few packages of paper napkins. Oh yeah, I also grabbed myself a cake server! Yep, I’m my own personal shopper! Guess what, it’s all on sale this week!
