I think I may actually be one of the few eternally-broke girls who has never been a waitress. Have you seen the show, Two Broke Girls? Well, my patience threshold is about the same at Kat Dennings’ character, so even if I did have a wait job, I would probably lose it pretty quickly.
Personally, I would love to be Waiting On Martha, though… because the curator and blogger behind it, Mandy Kellogg Rye, has impeccable taste that leaves me wishing I was her next door neighbor. You know, so I could peer through her windows when she’s gone and steal all of her amazing design ideas. I could never invite her over, though, so we’d have to be “over-the-fence” friends otherwise she’d walk into my house and be like “Oh hey so you’re really creepy.”
Maracon Trinket Boxes, $8.50 each (w/o code: $10 each)
It would appear that I’m not the only one with this fantasy, as Mandy Kellogg Rye opened up ShopWaitingOnMartha.com to offer her aesthetic taste to her readers and other design-minded shoppers!
After spending four days bouncing around her site on a daily basis (not an exaggeration), I have come up with a pretty tightly curated wishlist based solely on her inventory. She seems to use a lot of extremely colorful motifs and themes – the closely to monochrome that I got was this adorable, white, “studded” Jonathan Adler frame. (I’m building an all-white bookshelf in my bedroom and want it to only have white accessories on it, so onto the wish list it goes!)
Speaking of Jonathan Adler – if you loved the Jonathan Adler Utopia Collection, you’ll be pleased to know that this Mr. & Mrs. Mug is nearly the same style, and better yet – it’s under $25.
