A Bit of Spring

One of my new favorite things is growing mini bulb gardens indoors. Last fall and winter I grew paper white bulbs inside of these small, matte, pale coral "bowls" I picked up at CB2 last spring. I really enjoyed having these mini gardens for a good chunk of the winter as semi-permanent floral arrangements on our bed side tables. I was hungry to find bulbs to grow in these small pots this spring. I couldn't resist when I saw a spring bulb arrangement wrapped in purple foil at the grocery store READ MORE

It’s Spray Painting Season!

I have been marveling at the power of spray paint ever since I started using it in my kitchen makeover to make small improvements with hardware. It's amazing stuff. I've been eagerly waiting for the opportunity to get outside and spray paint a few things, and it finally happened this week! We had a couple of days with temperatures in the 40's!

Hit by Rug Love

Hey guys! I just got the new West Elm catalog in the mail yesterday, and guess what I saw? This super cool Kilim rug in coral and white! I was shot through the heart, you guys! You know the first thing I'm gonna do is photoshop it into the sunroom to see how it could possibly, potentially, maybe work. Now I wasn't really on the look-out for a rug for the sunroom, I was pretty satisfied with the way this cream shag rug that I pulled out of storage was looking (below) - and still could READ MORE
