This guy and I will be hanging out all day today, watching the new season of "House of Cards" and recovering from my first (and hopefully last) cold of the winter. A few things I'm looking forward to about this weekend: S getting his stitches removed tomorrow; a new sewing... Continue reading

Thanks Petra! T-shirt fabric is a great idea :)
Thank you Marilyn! Do check out Unstopables -- they're subtle enough that they don't bother my sensitive nose very much, but last long enough that they're worth it.

Bahaha thanks m.e.!! Seriously everything he touches (esp. Target-wise) is gold.

I had shared bits and pieces of our living room on this blog before, but I realized I had never really welcomed you guys into the space my wife and I (and our dog Samson) use most often. The living room is the first thing (aside from our front porch)... Continue reading

My mom came to visit a few weeks ago, and had with her a woolen cape that my grandmother had bought in Italy decades before. She wore it around our chilly house, and even while we ran a few errands. It was so much more stylish than a sweatshirt, but... Continue reading

Thank you m.e.! Xoxo

I know this is a big statement, but this might be my favorite French macaron flavor combination of all time. Obviously peanut butter and chocolate are amazing together, but add Oreos? Two out of two Lohans can't be wrong. You will need: 115g aged egg whites at room temp Pinch... Continue reading

Isn't it great, Masha!?

More on Instagram We've been laying low this past week. Samson had surgery last Friday and handled it like a boss. Things are, for the most part, quiet and actually pretty boring. (Which is actually pretty nice.) Our washing machine finally got fixed so I've been gleefully doing laundry like... Continue reading

I have GOT to start watching Shark Tank! I feel like so many good brands get the spotlight through that show

For Christmas, my sister Phoebe got me a Lumi Photo Printing Kit. I wanted to share how my first attempt turned out... I used a photo I took last summer when my sister and I went to New York City (and stopped at Laduree of course). I've got plenty more... Continue reading

Every time September rolls around, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. In the days leading up to my birthday, I find all kinds of cards, packages, baked goods, flowers, and other pretty things in my mailbox. My friends and family members always remember, and make my birthday... Continue reading

I knitted this scarf for a very dear friend (inspired by the blanket in our living room), and it's on its way to her doorstep now! I just hope she doesn't spot it here first ;) If you want to make your own, you will need: White or off-white worsted... Continue reading

More on Instagram We're laying low this weekend. In fact, I'm working from home today. Poor Samson is having surgery as I type, to remove a benign tumor from his neck. It's not at all dangerous (actually it's full of fur, which is kind of extra disgusting), but it's been... Continue reading

This is one of my very favorite kinds of posts because I get to find out so much about you guys! (Read the first, second, third, and fourth in the series -- and feel free to answer those too!) If you want to play along, settle in with a nice... Continue reading

Making a foldover clutch is the perfect way to use up the leftover faux leather from this project. I made one just like this for my sister for Christmas, using brown faux leather and a really cute polka dot fabric for the liner! You will need: Two pieces of leather... Continue reading
