Ten Things I Love Tuesday #3

Welcome to the third installment of 10TILT! Here are 10 things I'm loving this week:

1. This idea for using a chest as a filing cabinet!

What a great idea for small spaces, or possibly if a guest room is combined as a guest room! But what else would we expect from Martha Stewart?

2. This adorable and modest little black dress by Abigail Wright Designs.

It's pretty hard to find modest dresses (in my opinion) let alone modest dresses that are as perfect as this! Unless your name is Hikari, and your dress finds you.

3. This storage idea:

File this one under the "why didn't I think of that?" category. Storing your sheets in their own pillowcases! If I ever have more than one set of sheets per bed, I'll definitely remember this! Found here. Idea by who else? Martha Stewart!

4. Crocheted Sea Stones

These are by Maggie Oomen. Check out her Etsy shop here.

5. This wood slice path. 

I am in LOVE with this idea! Blame it on my cabin-y Alaskan ways, but this is amazing! I am now torn between doing a sea stone walkway in my backyard and this... decisions, decisions. Read about it here.

6. The ceiling of this beautiful laundry room.

I might just do this... found on apartmenttherapy.com

7. This color theme

8. These amazing crocheted socks. 

I want to make them, but sadly, they're in a Japanese crochet book, and I am not confident in my Japanese translation. 

9. This date night idea

12 pre-planned, pre-paid for date nights, ready to go! Great idea, Shannon Brown! And great name too, if I do say so myself :)

10. Speaking of things pre-done - what about pre-buttered corn?

That's right. Martha Stewart again. Sorry to be so predictable.
 Perfect summer treat! Serve corn on the cob already buttered so guests can dig right in. Bring water to a boil in a stockpot (don't add any salt; it toughens kernels), and drop in six to eight ears. Return to a boil, then cook two to four minutes for crisp-tender corn. When ears are just about done, slice eight tablespoons of unsalted butter, and drop them into the cooking water; stir to melt. The butter will float, and each ear will get an even coating as you remove it from the pot with tongs.
