Look for new finds today in our Hope Chest with pretty pictures of little objects we think would be a great addition to any home. We’ll be posting our finds throughout the day but start with this catch-up on great finds around the blogosphere from the past week!

Jess’s Picks

  • Maybe it’s just getting over living in a house that doesn’t have nearly enough furniture yet, but I’m really into haphazard collections of objects. Check out this jewelry box at design sparrow.

Mary’s Picks

  • This recent post from Food Renegade makes me want to build my own garden even more. This is hard since I rent, but I’m pretty sure I could figure out how to make a mobile one of some sort. (If you’ve got an idea please comment!)
  • Since I live in a small space, I feel like this post on Ikea Hacker is so awesome. They took an IKEA storage closet and cut out a hole in the wall and just slid it in. This would be awesome to do with any piece of furniture.
  • I don’t grow out my nails because they always, always break on the sides. So, Karen’s post on the Art of Doing Stuff on how to fix a partly broken nail is pretty much the most amazing, innovative solution for nail fixin’. All you need is a tea bag, super glue, tweezers, buffing board thing-a-ma-jig, and a partly broken nail.
