I recently signed on to contribute for Sugar & Cloth–one of my all time favorite DIY blogs! Ashley, the creative genius behind S&C, is a fountain of inspiration with impeccable style, so naturally I was thrilled to be apart
Ah, behold the latent design power of the throw pillow. AKA soft little squares (or in this case, circles) of goodness that can single-handedly change the feeling or direction of a room, spark conversation, or soften an otherwise uninviting chair or nook. Yes folks, they’re magic when it comes to interior decor which is why they’re the easy answer to updating your space just enough to cure the restless, “I’m sick of my house” cabin fever that inevitably sets in this time of year.
‘Tis that time of year when we’re busy making resolutions for the new year in an effort to make 2017 the best one yet. Did you guys make any goals? One of the things I really want to accomplish is being more present and less plugged into my iPhone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a blogger, so emailing, Instagramming, Pinteresting, & Tweeting very much come with the territory. But with our first baby arriving in weeks, I want to make sure I can find a manageable balance between the two.
We all have peeps on our Christmas list that are HARD to buy for. Whether it’s because you only know them professionally, & not personally like teachers and secret santa co-workers, or perhaps your giftee tells you that just being together on Christmas is enough, but you know you can’t actually show up empty handed. When I’m stumped on what to get for someone, I often turn to candles. They’re beautiful, useful, you can make them right in your kitchen.
Happy weekend! I’m excited to invite you in for a tour of our home decked out for Christmas as part of The Meaningful Holiday Home Tour, hosted by Laura of Meaningful Spaces! The tour runs Dec. 1st – 4th, so make sure you check out the rest of the homes on the tour with the links at the bottom of this post.
Ken and I recently took a little babymoon to Boston and Nantucket in early October. While we were there I was lugging my camera from place to place either carrying it by hand (so it was convenient to snap a photo) or in my saddle purse, and I came to the realization that I needed a camera strap. Badly. Why the heck had I never gotten one?! They make life so much easier, whether I’m on a trip or at home snapping photos for a blog post. So when we got home, I set out to make one.
Despite concerted efforts at cultivating a green thumb, I’ve never quite been able to unlock the mystery of houseplants. So thank goodness I married a man with an innate (rugged, but nurturing) ability to keep plants green. Though I may not get a gold star in raising plants, I do quite love scheming up cool ways to house the plants my husband grows. Most recently, I DIY’ed a mid mod planter for a mini-palm that was sitting homeless in our living room. And it was as simple as stacking two Target bowls on top of one another (and adhering them together of course!).
I LOVE this planter for it’s Mid Century simplicity, and the modern platform it creates for the mini palm! The two bowls I used were this one & this one . Hop over to Sugar & Cloth for the full tutorial!
And don’t forget to pin this project for later!
