She got it on Etsy, not sure of the shop name but I bet you could find it just by searching. It's pretty unique and really well made. -Emma
Toggle Commented yesterday on Light Up Photo Frame at A Beautiful Mess
Ha! It def could be depending what photo you choose to light up. :) I used this photo of a rainbow road from our trip to Iceland last year, so it's pretty cheery. But I could totally see this being a fun Halloween project given the right photo. :) -Emma

A few months ago. Elsie gifted me this sweet light up cactus for my 30th birthday. I know! She nailed it. :) So far, he has ended up on top of the piano in our living room. I like being able to see the cactus from where I usually am most nights – at the stovetop throwing together dinner. This spot also works well because this corner of the house... Continue reading

I'd love to have some story about the time I was in Mexico and happened upon a street fair where I had the best elotes and churro of my life. But the truth is, although I have been to Mexico, I did not have elotes (street corn) while I was there. The real reason I fell in love with this dish is because they serve a version of it at...

I guess we technically drove in the opposite direction, but I could not agree more—it truly is a soul filling drive. I am very envious of anyone who lives nearby. It's so breathtaking. :) -Emma

So this is my second year posting a "5 Places I want to go in..." in a row. I honestly view this as more of putting my intentions/hopes out into the universe type of thing. What I mean is, I don't truly expect that I'll get to go to all five places I list. But I think it kind of gives me some ideas of the kinds of things I... Continue reading

When I started brainstorming for our kiddo-friendly guest room, one of the first themes that came to mind was Palm Springs. Not only am I a complete addict for all things Palm Springs, but one of my favorite d.i.y. directions of ALL TIME is turning adult things into kiddo things. Felt desert plants, nods to Frank Sinatra and fun pool floaties and the 1960s... I covered pages and pages in... Continue reading

I'm not sure what it's called. I was told it's a tropical tree and much more difficult to kill than a fiddle leaf fig (I'm swearing those off- haha!!) If anyone else knows what this tree is called I'd love to know! xx- Elsie
