I have a good friend (and newly-turned-client) who recently asked me to do a blog post about my advice on how to style awkward shelves.  I used to think that it was old houses that were mostly to blame for having to deal with awkwardly placed/sized shelves but she live...

To start the holiday season off right, I've rounded up some of my recent favorite finds for the holiday.  Some to decorate your home, some for gifts, some for hosting (or to give as hostess gifts), and some just because it's Christmas and do you really NEED a r...

A blog subscriber and friend (hey, hey Eleanor!) recently asked me to do a post on my thoughts and tips on layering rugs and so I'm happy to oblige and try to help.  I am personally a big fan of layering rugs for a few reasons: 1. If you fall for a gorgeous rug th...

Ahhh Michael's.  A crafter's dream, other people's living nightmare.  Despite my love of crafting, my previous opinion vacillated between a dream and a nightmare (try going in there with kids!!) depending on how badly I needed something.  Last week, armed with an elect...
