We're taking a break!


Something Nice Designs is in middle of revamping and improving ourselves. I feel like we need some time to narrow in on our overall look, content, and quality. So not to put up poor quality posts I am going to have us go on a work break for a while. No we will not be snoozing like Knives above, but we will be doing a lot of research and work on the site, blog, and our products. I will be revisiting A Beautiful Mess's e-course's Blog Love and Dream Job.  Also I have just started taking Arrow & Apple's Lighting e-course to get my photography skills up to par. These are all really terrific and I suggest you check them out. 

I even brought these ladies out of the closet. 

Lot's of notes, post its, and paper! Getting organized!

We are very excited about the new changes and we hope you will like them as well! We will still be posting to instagram (something_nice), pinning, and answering emails.

Thanks for everyone's support! See you in a week or two!

Green Lake Trip!

My family has this old lake house that was built with the help of everyone years and years ago. I love it so much. It's on Green Lake, WI and it's beautiful. The town is adorable and has so many cool things to see and do. This year I checked out the flea market in near by town, Princeton. They had so many different cool things! My friends Max and Linda got a cool american themed bandana and hat. I purchased some old comics for my fiance Nick! I had a great trip and can't wait till next year!

Mmm had great outdoor times with coffee & magazines!

Unique bird feeders! I wish I had a place for one! Gum-ball machines, lamps, and tea kettles!

Oh, and an old thermos too! 

Old beer cans! I just love the designs!

Well there is just a little taste of my weekend. I hope yours was great!

Costume Jewelry, from Grandma Clarice

So I went to my family's lake house over the weekend (there will be a post about it tomorrow) and came into some costume jewelry from my recently passed Grandmother. She was the cutest, kindest lady and going through some of the jewelry I was surprised to remember most from my childhood. I am really attached to little treasures like these and I am excited to be given the opportunity to have some. :)

This one is probably my favorite. My mom told me this actually came from my great grandma Bess. So cool!

Me sporting it. So excited!

Adventure Time! Hunt & Gather

These pictures are from the spring, my friend Michelle took me to this really cool antique shop called Hunt & Gather. It has almost everything you could think of from huge letters to a bucket full of baby doll arms to chandeliers. These pictures were just from one of their many rooms. There are two floors and every room is different. I suggest you go back a couple times because the first time is very overwhelming, but amazing. It was a very cool adventure. :D

Have a great weekend guys!

Giving DIY a try!

So I decided on making a new weekly post on our blog. I LOVE all the DIY's being shared out there and I want to try some of them out! So every week I will post the project I tried out and the link to the person who showed me how! :D

So these are printable geometric paper containers! The cute paper print out comes from the super cute blog Zü Bienvenue! It's a very smart and adorable idea of holding your small stuff! I downloaded the template and added some of my own patterns and customized the colors. It was so easy and fun! (Sorry about the photos, they are not the best. I just moved and I am not sure where I put my camera!)

My craft wasn't the best, I think I would give it another go but with some cardstock! :D

Any DIY suggestions? Throw them at me! I will do them! 

THANKS! Have a great thursday guys!
