Smart Playrooms: Getting Organized!

You know the drill. The excuses, the arguments, the negotiations… “Only take one toy out at a time. Don’t forget to clean up afterwards. No moving on to the next thing until we’ve put this away first…” Keeping a playroom clean and clear of clutter can be quite a feat. And I’m not saying the… read more

Little Things: From the Kitchen

When I was growing up the kitchen was the hub in our household. On any given day you’d find 3 or 4 of us huddled around the center island making snacks and catching up. To this day, while our kitchen is quite petite, it’s still where we spend most of our time cooking and congregating…. read more

Gift Guide: For the Host

‘Tis the season! Nothing says “thank you for having me” like a special gift. A bottle of your favorite wine is a great idea, but sometimes a one-of-a kind item that the host would most likely not buy themselves is a better answer. I’m a big fan of buying a few things and keeping them… read more

A space where the things hanging on the wall feel in sync. A place where the bed is welcoming or the… read more

Dear Old Dad

So here I am blogging about just how crafty and organized I am trying to become and what do I do? I leave shopping for Father’s Day gifts to the very last minute. Not crafty. Not organized. Sorry Dad. Sorry Husband. I may not have ordered personalized golf balls months ago but I do fancy… read more

I’ve got a cousin-in-law who is just one of those women. Effortlessly chic in a casual and cool kind of way. Bohemian yet modern. Relaxed but always accessorized with a piece that is truly unique. She has a lot of talents – one of them being a keen eye for interior design – and that’s… read more
