Welcome to Feature Friday!

This again makes me want a beach house. Re-purposing a canoe can be a great way to keep memories alive. It also would be a great place to store books about the sea, travel and adventure.

I really like the open design of this shelving unit. I also think the vibrant colour is really cool and can be used as a statement piece in an otherwise darker room.

I really like the difference in heights on these shelves, but also that they move. It adds a unique design without taking away from simplicity and elegance. A minimalistic appearance.

Welcome to Feature Friday!

I know I used a similar shelving unit a couple weeks ago, but I love how this one can be used on a wall and not necessarily just as a corner piece. It could be a beautiful incorporation to have both of these to tie rooms together for a seamless design.

Review:
Carl is still with Lydia and the whisperers. As well, Gregory is still locked up for the time being, but Maggie feels he is too much of a danger and since he threatens her life she thinks he needs to be killed. While Negan was being cleaned up, the door to his jail cell didn’t lock properly, so now there is potential for him to escape.
