Anthropologie Knock Off: Wooden Chalkboard Clips

18 Aug

28371573_001_b

This is going to be a quick little knock off that cost almost nothing. The inspiration from Anthropologie are these cute little wooden chalkboard clips. Now, I’m not really sure what they’re supposed to be used for. I’m guessing they’re meant to be used as place cards for dinner, or maybe labeling dishes at a party, or even just around the house. And for an item that I’m not really sure what its purpose is, I’m definitely not paying $10 for four of them.

I’m fairly new to ModCloth, but I can pretty much always find something on there that I want desperately.  If you’re a first time visitor – you might get little scared by some of the more costumey retro clothing. There is some seriously authentic ’50s and ’60s apparel on there that initially made me a bit wary. But when you look around a little bit, there is a TON of modern clothing and home decor that has just a bit of a retro twist. Like this little recipe box. The top has a neat little 1950s diner logo, and the card dividers are photos of vintage diner signs and menus. So cute. The only problem? It’s $40 for the box. Unless you’re going to personally transfer all of my scattered recipes to the recipe cards, I think I can handle this for WAY less.

I’ve had these jars pinned in my “I Could Make This” board on Pinterest for awhile now. I have a little thing for containers.  I’m constantly organizing and reorganizing, sometimes just as an excuse to use cute new containers. Now, the little jars my spices come in work fine for me, but I was pretty sure I could find some use for these somewhere. But at ten dollars a piece, that wasn’t going to happen.

Anthropologie Knock Off: Botticino Marble Coasters

Apparently, the good people at Anthropologie do not find stolen bar coasters appropriate for protecting their precious wooden tables from water damage. Well fine, Anthropologie, I’ll look at your marble coasters painted with spines of vintage books. Okay, I’ll even like them a little. Alright, I want them.  But there is NO WAY you’re getting forty dollars from me for four coasters. Marble or not, that’s insane. They are super cute though….

Apartment 48 Knock Off: Animal Portrait Mugs

10 Jul

animal-portrait-mugsAre these not the absolute cutest mugs you’ve ever seen? I saw them over at Apartment 48 and LOVED how bright and happy they were and that they looked hand drawn. I’m a tea drinker, and I can never resist an adorable little mug to drink it out of. Well, unless they’re $18 plus shipping. Then I can resist. Besides, I’d seen a tutorial on Pinterest that I was dying to try, and for a grand total of ONE dollar, I thought I’d give this a shot.
