I was curled up on my porch swing yesterday beneath my winter coat with a copy of Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts in one hand and a cold PBR in the other. Nothing like a cold brew and a little domestic inspiration to start your week off right. Try it this Sunday afternoon. You’ll thank me. I was perusing Martha’s brilliance when this image jumped off...

Date Basket

Date Basket

Sep 26

This clever idea has been making the rounds on Pinterest, but every since I saw these pre-planned {and pre-paid} monthly date envelopes, I’ve been coming up with ideas to make my own. Shannon Brown made these as a Christmas gift for her husband, but how cool would it be as an anniversary or a wedding gift? Each month of the year would have a different theme and a different adventure for...

While I was vacationing in Amelia Island last week, I stumbled into a small design studio. Unfortunately, the studio will have to remain nameless because, well, frankly, the owner was rather snooty. But, before shaking the proverbial dust off my feet, upon my exit, I noticed these unique picture frames hanging in the corner. Puffy Frame :: Rectangle :: Slate Puffy Frame :: Square :: Gecko These...

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Things

Dec 16

Every year, my mother asks me what I want for Christmas to which I reply the usual, “nothing”. In recent years, I’ve even taken the extreme approach of the advent conspiracy theorist, ranting about how grossly commercialized Christmas has become, how wild horses couldn’t drag me into a mall during the month of December, the tragic influence of Western consumer indulgence...
