How was your weekend? It always goes too fast! I spent one day skiing and one day working on Tuesday Made things. My work life balance is slowly improving, haha! Progress not perfection, I suppose. I did lots of photographing and uploading new arrivals to our shop- which always feels a bit like Christmas, unboxing all of the new pretty things! If you want to check out what’s new, you can click here. I still have more to upload this week, as well! Otherwise, I’m kicking off the week with a short and sweet post, sharing 25 of my Tuesday Made favorites- all under $25. I’ve got an office tour on the calendar for you, too (per your request)! It will be to fun to show you our work setup there, behind-the-scenes. I just need to finish painting a few spaces, hang up some art, and style. Anyway… click through to see some newbies and my favorite budget friendly items we currently carry!
We got incredible hand carved marble bowls in, with a charming ruffle edge and I immediately snagged one for myself. I filled it with clementines (I’ve been snacking on them daily) and didn’t realize how perfectly it goes with my still life fruit painting until editing the photo… a match made in (citrus) heaven! We actually have an entire marble section on our website, which includes marble bowls and vessels of all shapes and sizes. This is a bright spot that has been making me smile in our kitchen! As for the 25 under $25…

Obviously I’m a fan of it all, since I select every single item we carry in our shop, but my personal top five favorites are: #1, #2, #9, #20, and #25. The best sellers from this roundup (aka- your favorites) are #3, #5, #17, #21, and #24. We used lots of things from the shop in last week’s surprise kitchen and dining makeover, too! I feel like we have a lot of great kitchen goods right now.
I’ve restocked our berry bowls a few times- they come in four different colors. Funny story: we have a cool gray and warm gray color, and I spent half an hour explaining the difference between the two to Emmett after he got them mixed up and shipped out the wrong one. Luckily, he only made that mistake once and now claims to be a color theory expert. Haha! Also pictured in the above shot is our potted rosemary (doesn’t that look SO realistic?!) and our round handle cutting board.
My favorite hand soap and dish brush set also made an appearance in last week’s surprise kitchen reveal, as did our new cookbook stands. Emmett found a local metal artist who has been making those for us. We’re testing an antique brass batch right now, but I have the distressed bronze one in our kitchen at home.
One other, non kitchen-related item I’m really excited for is our sculptural hands. You know I love a good decor hand! They’re so much fun to style.
Well, that’s all I have for today! As always, thanks for your continued support of my blog, our shop, and for being such wonderful friends. I truly love and appreciate you! It’s shaping up to be a busy week over here and I’m off to pour another cup of coffee and get moving. I hope you all have a fantastic week! How are we already nearing the end of February? This month always flies by.

All the heart eyes! I noticed the marble section of the shop while browsing the other day. What a dreamy idea! That square ruffled bowl is stunning! You’re also featuring a super collection of planters. The ribbed stoneware, regal lion and aged brass all manage to look classic, yet unique! (I need more spaces inaccessible to my plant-chomping pets!) I love the cookbook stand even more knowing that you are working with a local artisan. So special! Even though it’s a great deal of work, I also imagine the fun of sourcing so many beautiful pieces! Good to know that you now have a color theory expert working with you.🤣 I look forward to your office tour! Happy Monday!💜

Thank you, Peggi! I’m anxiously awaiting all of our spring new arrivals to get to me- they’ve slowly been trickling in. The best part really is sourcing all of the gorgeous products from a variety of places, artists, and makers. Emmett was cracking me up with his warm gray vs cool gray commentary. I wish you could’ve been a fly on the wall for that conversation or little color theory lesson. Haha!! Happy Monday and have a great week, my friend! xo

Good Monday Morning Sarah 🌞
Well we had a good weekend here full of board games, plenty of relaxation, delicious food, combined with a little baking 😋 Sounds like you had a lovely weekend too. While we opted to stay inside mostly, a day of skiing sounds wonderful. Not to mention getting to enjoy unpacking all of the beautiful things from Tuesday Made. So many beautiful objects, how to choose? Well your post this morning will help me decide I think. I’ll be placing an order this week for our friends in Florida and as they will be moving to a new home maybe items like hand soap, candles and linen kitchen towels just might be the way to go. A sparkling new kitchen deserves some special treatment as your post last week revealed. My heart is still smiling about that incredible kitchen renovation ❤️ Thanks for the Tuesday Made inspiration as I finalize my prezzie picks 🥰 Have a super fabulous Monday!
SarahFebruary 22, 2021 at 7:19 am
Good morning, Colleen! Your weekend sounds absolutely perfect :) I wish I would’ve worked in some baking time and board games- two of my favorites! It was nice to get outside though. Thanks so much for your kind words about the goods in our shop. I’ll be at the office later today and will send you photos of the art & frame combination! You are such a sweet friend and so thoughtful to send your friends a special house warming gift. I can gift wrap it for you and write a sweet handwritten note, too! That kitchen renovation made me so happy, too. Have a wonderful week and a good Monday, Colleen! xo

I love browsing the new items! There’s always so many beautiful pieces to admire! I don’t know where you manage to find all the gorgeous planters but they are unique, and I think the pieces I’m most in love with! I never can decide on exactly what I want for our home-I think right now I’m in such a love hate relationship with most of the rooms that making styling decisions is somewhat crippling-but I’m slowly getting there! We spent Saturday at the beach and it was beautiful until the wind kicked up, but the opportunity to be outside and relaxing away from home was well worth it! Sunday I spent running errands…not my favorite but at least it knocked my to-do list down. Your ski days sound so fun and amazing! I’m glad to hear the work-life balance is getting better, and that’s the best way to look at it- “progress not perfection”. Cheers to a new week ahead! Have a great day Sarah!
SarahFebruary 22, 2021 at 8:18 am
I’m so happy to hear that, Lauren! Thank you :) You’re definitely getting there- keep at it! Your day at the beach sounds amazing, despite the wind. I haven’t been to the ocean since we went to Oregon last fall and I’m craving some salty air and sand between my toes. I miss traveling! Sometimes those productive weekend days (getting groceries, running all the errands) can feel really good to cross things off the list and have a well stocked, clean house at the end of the weekend. I actually enjoy those mindless days! Your weekend sounds like it was a good one. Happy Monday and have an awesome week, Lauren! xo

Congratulations on the shop! Would love to see more washing instructions (specifically, can I put it in the dishwasher?!) on the listings for your kitchen pieces, if you could add that. I was just looking at the measuring spoons and would have pulled the trigger if I’d been able to find that info!
SarahFebruary 24, 2021 at 5:19 pm
Thanks so much, Monica! I’ll try to add more of those little details- thank you for the great suggestion! For the measuring spoons- those are made of stainless steel, but the manufacturer suggests hand washing only.

Just found you from Pinterest while looking at kitchen layout and colors. Also, found that you are based here in Utah, so that is amazing, too. I am in Northern Utah. What color are your kitchen cabinets? The teal blue? I love it!
SarahMarch 4, 2021 at 6:00 pm
Hi Tina! Hello neighbor- yes, I’m in Salt Lake City :) You can find my cabinetry paint color in this post: https://roomfortuesday.com/color-matching-our-kitchen-cabinets-painting-tips/

Hey Sarah – great name, first off ;) – second, I was wondering with the book stand, if it folds up or not? Thanks!
SarahMarch 10, 2021 at 8:24 am
Thanks, Sarah :) The book stand does not fold. We’re actually out of stock right now, but are expecting to get more in soon.
