SHOP SMALL WITH SOME OF MY FAVORITES

I’ve been going back and forth over what to post here on the blog and how I could somehow tie it into helping others right now and the one thing I kept coming back to was supporting fellow small businesses. I can’t think of a better way to do that than to highlight a few…

FINDING JOY IN LITTLE THINGS: SETTING THE TABLE

Now that we are all doing our part and staying home, my connection to the real world exists solely through group texts with my family and friends and my Instagram feed.  I’m forever grateful to so many who have tried to maintain a sense of normalcy and have continued to post such beautiful and inspiring…

OBSESSED: FOOTED GLASS HURRICANES

Surprisingly, I’ve never been one of those people who can’t walk out of Target without having spent half a month’s mortgage, but I will admit that on a stop in a few weeks ago for dish soap, I did a double take when I walked past these footed glass hurricanes!  If you guys have been…

this is 6!

Two days after Christmas my favorite girl in the whole world turned SIX!!!!  It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital and here we are, waiting for her front tooth (that has been hanging by a thread for weeks) to fall out.  How did that happen?  Birthdays are, indeed such an…

christmas table setting

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying these marvelously lazy days in between then and New Year’s lounging in pj’s, in blissful unawareness of what day or date it is (with a cocktail somewhere in there, as well!)  That’s exactly how we are spending ours and, after a ridiculously chaotic Christmas…

diy: painted christmas balls

My idea of the perfect craft project is one that takes less than ten minutes and doesn’t make much of a mess.  These painted Christmas balls check all those boxes and then some!  I’ve wanted to try these for years but never got around to it for one reason or another; this year, while searching…

The most wonderful time of the year is in full swing and so is party season!  The dinners, get togethers, cocktail hours and parties have started with a vengeance, so I thought it would be fun to put together a roundup of gift ideas for the hostess or friend/family member who loves to entertain (and…
