I'm very much in love with these.. But they're not cheap! Dabney Lee sells em for like $200, and you can find em on etsy at around $70, which is better.. K I get that they're very trendy, and they have awesome patterns on the bottom, but hello isn't this just a piece of plastic?! Okay, acrylic. Lucite. Whatever.
Well thank goodness I live in St Louis where I could drive on over and buy one! 20 bucks! It's a mini, but it'll do...
Here's my lil baby tray (sorry about the weirdo lighting.. wtf?), and you may recall my post about my notecard find.. I love the pattern and colors on it (matches NOTHING in my empty white temporary apartment here, but it makes me happy!) I just taped some notecards together because it happened to be the perfect width.
Now I just slipped the notecards underneath so you get the picture, but that's not a good permanent solution obviously. When I move back home, I imagine I'll laminate it, then cut it and insert it inside so it looks like it was printed on there... I dunno, hopefully that's how it turns out anyway.
All jazzed up! Just using what I had on hand, the tray can function as a little corral for perfume, or a catch-all for keys, change and whatnot in an entryway.
That "vase" may or may not be a tumbler for toothbrushes. And I may or may not have been using it before this as a makeup brush holder.. I needed a prop! And I love props with multi-purpose =)
No it's not fancy schmancy with my initials monogrammed on it like the above "real lucite trays" but for $20, I'll take it.
Oh! And I also messed around with some cute wrapping paper I had.. the possibilities are endless with these bad boys. Change it with the seasons!
On an unrelated note, me and some amigas headed to a delicious cupcake bar here in St Louis yesterday. I've been craving these succulent little treats, but what I realized is that I like the idea of fancy cupcakes more than the actual thing. I was slightly disappointed but we still had fun.
Jilly's Cupcake Bar was on Food Network's Cupcake Wars and won something or other, so I guess it's famous now.
Well they certainly look delicious right?!
Malia, Paityn, and me.. the three little piggies. lol jk
