Sunday Fun Day: Taking a Vacation?

Many people are excited about having a 3 day weekend this week. What are your plans?

I get four days away from my day job every week and didn’t end up getting any extra time off this week, but I can’t complain.

Anybody taking a vacation, getting on the road with the kids in the family car? Or are you just going to take a break and veg a little?

The timing of things is funny. I just mentioned in my last post that I was getting a bit tired and then shortly after the owners of wallinspired decided they wanted me to take a hiatus from the blog. So the wallinspired blog will be taking a hiatus.

I thank wallinspired for approaching me with this opportunity to write for them. I have learned a LOT and I discovered my strengths and weaknesses when it comes to running a project like this. I will still be writing at my own blog Pieces of Elise’s – so please check it out. I really appreciate all of your support to my writing! Now hopefully I can put in more time writing for myself 🙂

This is Elise signing off from the wallinspired blog – have a great weekend everyone! Until next time 🙂

Saturday Sales: Time for a Little Monkey Business

I went through a phase where I was obsessed with making my bedroom into a jungle. I think I was 11 or 12. I had a bunch of monkey stuffed animals that I would try to hang and prop in different corners of my room. I even had a monkey that screeched “OOOOOH EEEEAHHH AHHH AHH AHHHHHHH!” or something like that. In one of my windows I strung up some puppet/mobile animals I made. I had an ostrich, a slender loris, a bush baby, and lemurs. I had other animal pictures in different parts of my room, too.

Do you have a little one like that, or are you yourself into the jungle theme? Check out the treasury below, and see if you can spot the on sale wallinspired item 🙂

Saturday Sales: Get Ready to Take Flight

I work on the eighth floor of an office building and most of the time I’m tied to my chair at the receptionist desk. Even though I spend about 9 hours desk bound, it could be worse. I could be in a cubicle! Instead I think I have the best view in the office. There are 2 conference rooms, one on the east, which is closer called “Lakeside”, and one on the west called “The Boardroom”. Both conference rooms have huge windows on their exterior wall. From where I sit all I see are trees and sky. Well, not all. In Lakeside to the east I get to see the geese as the dive toward the lake or hawks swooping off of the roof. I love seeing that. I feel like I’m stealing a special look at nature that no one else gets to see. That inspired this treasury– take a look and see if you can spot the on sale wallinspired decal 🙂

Thursday Food for Thought: When Was the Last Time You Tried Something New?

Good morning!

I’m excited to start this day and I hope you are, too.

If you’re not, I’m sorry. Maybe asking yourself this question will help you explore the great potential each day offers us to learn, grow, and be happy.

When was the last time you tried something new? Do you remember?

Did you try eating at  a new restaurant? Or did you eat a fish taco for the first time? (I did a few weeks ago).

Did you listen to some music from an artist that you just recently discovered? Or did you try writing your own song?

Please share the new things you’ve tried recently and what you plan to try today!

Just comment below!

Boy’s Playroom

Hope you guys are having a good weekend!

What do you like to do for fun this time of year? Do you like to visit the local museums and the zoo?

The room below features some items that would add a sense of adventure to your young explorer’s bedroom or playroom.

I put this collection together with boys in mind, since so far I haven’t featured them too prominently on the blog. Sorry moms and dads with boys 😦 We didn’t forget about you, though!

So now in the spirit of an expedition you can do a scavenger hunt for the Etsy items described below – and to find them in their natural habitat (etsy shop) just click the underlined text- which will take you right to the listing!

In this playroom, the smiling little guy wearing the fun necktie is from the shop SuperSweetCreationsThe cuddily creature on his lap is a Phill doggy knitted doll from FrejaToysHe’s leaning against the children’s dinosaur cushion from toastiestudioThe Adventure Awaits Globe on the end table is from wendygoldThe two pooches are laying on a medium houndstooth dog bed from BBabiesBiz. The set of 4 plaid sea turtles vinyl wall decals on wall are from wallinspiredThe green dinosaur planter on the dresser is from crazycouture. The United States Map on the wall is from happylandings. The zoo animals wooden peg dolls on the book shelf are from goosegrease. Next to the crayons lower on the shelf are the organic giraffe rattles from SmilingTreeToys.
