Both Dix and I live in small houses, so whenever we come across a great idea about entertaining in a small home...we like to pass it along. Southern Living says empty out your garage, hang some curtains and throw a party!! What a FAB idea for a summer evening! Watch Southern Living's video about outdoor entertaining here.

Aren't they cute?

We saw these while we were cruising an antique mall this past weekend. We just thought they were adorable.

Gotta tell ya...they come with a pretty price tag too. The sanitation truck below cost nearly $400. It is in mint condition, we're sure it musta got lost in someone's attic...forgotten til Grandma passed.

The one below was a little cheaper, we can just imagine some little boy playin with it in the sand hauling around his little cars.

Love the idea below from Design Sponge. How fun for a kids room!

Blast from the Past

Every time we watch this movie we want to move into the house they lived in. Seriously, we find ourselves rewinding the movie just to catch a glimpse of something retro...

like the Frigidaire Flair stove in the kitchen! (Don't cha just dig the crown she's wearing?)

Dixie (FJS#3) had this same range in one of her homes, and it was turquoise!

It's cool and swanky, a very sophisticated mid century modern style.

Even Bewitched had one! And you know that girl could have whatever she wanted at the twist of her cute lil nose!

So James Bond...the way the stove top pulled out.

And so Back To The Future...the way the oven door opened!
You gotta admit, RETRO IS COOL!!!!

The Bachman's Idea House

Today we discovered the Bachman's Idea House in Minneapolis Minnesota. Each season it is transformed by Ki Nassauer with wonderful whimsical ideas. Just take a look...
Love the look of these curtains made with aprons. Look above at the silverware chandy!
Fabulous pictures courtesy of Itsy Bits and Pieces.
She features posts on the Idea House each time it changes. Make sure you check her out.
Below is a closer look at the whimsical chandelier.

How cute is this? A basement window well used inside as a toy box...genius!

Funky bulletin board.

Fun catch-all made out of a vintage gate.

The shutter headboard is cute, but checkout the bedside lamps...too cool.
The branch below is a great way to incorporate a natural element to a brightly colored pallet.

Batter Up!!! This is a home run headboard idea!
Awesome storage for a boy's room.

Keep your eye on the Bachman's Idea House....they offer tons of inspiration and it changes with each season!
