Pinspiration- 'Milk Bottles'

I feel like I don't really have any creative thoughts lately that aren't pinterest inspired.
Here are some bottles that are like 'vintage milk bottles' and I got the idea from you know where.

Basically, I bought a whole flat of bottled SB frappuccinos from Costco.  I drank some of them, wow they are strong!  I poured some out into containers and froze them thinking they would be good as smoothies (diluted with milk? fruit?) if it ever gets hot here.  The label is a sticker, it came off pretty easily with hot water.  I might have scrubbed a bit with oil to get the last of the stickies off, can't quite remember.

 Then, I painted a few of the lids with left over craft paint.  Cute, huh?

Yep.  Finally got bangs.  
This first picture is the closest to my actual hair colour.  
Didn't realize how different instagram makes it look but it didn't change.  Still brown.

Wow, do I look different.  And I kinda love it.

Pinspiration- TOM's update

TOM's are everything everyone says they are.  They're cute, comfortable, for a good cause, and they easily get a hole in the toe.  Just like everyone says.  I got my TOM's last year and wore them frequently until the holes got bad.  They have been sitting dusty on a shelf in the mudroom ever since.  

Enter the source of all ideas on the planet, Pinterest!

 I read and pinned a few different tutorials on covering up that silly hole.  So, with nothing to lose, I gathered some things I had on hand and tried it.

Patch the holes with iron on patches to prevent the problem from reoccurring immediately.
 Then use a scrap of fabric and a ton of fabric glue and to for it.  In this case the fabric was the bottom of a pair of pants that became shorts last summer so that was also free.

TADA!  I think they turned out just fine.  Totally neat and presentable and a little colour blocking to up the trendiness factor.  Yeah for pinterest once again!
