Friday’s Five Under $50: Knotty Finds!

29 Jul

I’ve been practicing a lot of knots lately. You see, my husband took me to learn indoor rock climbing last weekend as part of a very thoughtful and fun birthday gift and to say that I loved it would be an understatement. I loved it A LOT. I’ve always had a fantasy about trying and being good at climbing.  For proof, take my graduate thesis project in which I drafted a candy-like rock climbing wall and climbing structure, to be installed in a playroom of “The Museum of Candy.” See below for the true and slightly embarrassing proof.

Today, we’re going to the climbing gym again to get in some more practice before our second technical class, and we’re going to take a test to prove that we know our stuff so that we can belay ourselves without an instructor. Hence why I’ve been “tied up” practicing my knots. It seems more than fitting to feature knotty, ropey, chalky and carabiner-ey finds for today’s Five Under $5o post: I’ve just got climbing on the brain!

1.) J.Crew Resin Chain Necklace, $30 (image via J.Crew); 2.) Carabiner Mug, $12 (image via think geek); 3.) Melissa and Doug Triangular Chalk, $8 (image via Melissa and Doug); 4.) LL Bean Rope Mirror, $50 (image via LL Bean); 5.) One World Rope Pillow (image via One Kings Lane)

Enjoy these fun fibrous finds, have a great weekend, and wish me luck as I reach for tiny hand and foot holds 35′ in the air!

    I really love the rope mirror. Knots are so playful and nauticul–perfect for the summer!
