‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE MOVING DAY ‘ TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE MOVING DAY WHEN ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE NOT A JACKET LEFT HANGING, NOT EVEN A BLOUSE THE BOXES STACKED HIGH ON THE DINING ROOM WALL IN HOPES THAT A TODDLER WOULD NOT TRIP AND FALL THE CHILDREN WERE SLEEPING UPON THEIR TWIN BEDS WHILE VISIONS OF BUBBLE WRAP DANCED IN THEIR HEADS AND MAMMA UN-SHOWERED, AND DAD IN A TEE WERE HIGH...

Deck the Deck

We are 99.9% sure we’ve secured our new rental! The interior has already been completely renovated and will suit our needs just fine, but unlike our current residence, there are not a lot of cozy nooks for reading, writing, or enjoying a hot cup of tea. The house has a small deck space but it needs a little TLC… okay, a LOT of TLC. Better Homes and Gardens recently featured 14 ways...

Removable wallpaper is a housing...

Mother’s Day is around the corner, and I can say with all certainty, this is what I want… The chairs are completely rad too, but I am especially loving the bright contrast of the framed silhouettes against the white walls in this L.A. home. I have always wanted to create...

Here We Move Again

Apr 24

There are days that take your breath away. And then there are days that knock the wind out of you. Yesterday was the latter. I will tell you why. I don’t have a makeup drawer… nor do I have a medicine cabinet where I keep my everyday soaps, lotions, and personal items. I have stored everything from my toothpaste to my face wash in the same toiletry bag for the past 6 years. It only...
