Wintry weather's got me imagining travel to cooler climes. Fjords, glaciers, the Northern Lights, the sun at midnight - I've never seen any of these wonders, and I sure wanna go to Norway so I can. It's seemed like a magical nature wonderland since I first read Roald Dahl's Boy... Continue reading

I've taken a few calligraphy lessons and been practicing my Copperplate plenty, filling up pages with the same letter over & over again. But when I'm done with practicing fancy, traditional letters, I like to reward myself with a fun, unstructured practice doodle. It's the same feeling I used to... Continue reading

At the end of last week, I got the chance to preview some fun stuff that Joy Cho of Oh Joy! created for The Land of Nod. I really enjoy The Land of Nod - as they describe it, it's design for kids and people that used to be kids.... Continue reading

This one's adapted from the August issue of Food & Wine, which was just chock full of vegetarian recipes. Food blogger Heidi Swanson came up with this one - if you haven't visited her blog 101 Cookbooks, do so immediately! The photography is really mouth-watering. I made just a few... Continue reading

As much as I enjoy summer and am sad to see it go, I'm starting to get just a leeeeeetle bit excited about fall. More change is afoot for me, and it's all good things as far as the eye can see. I'll be able to officially call myself a... Continue reading

Aw, man. The end of summer is definitely palpable. I've been thinking about squeezing every last bit of outdoor time out of the days of lovely warm weather we've got before fall arrives. I've always been attracted to the idea of outdoor rooms, particularly outdoor bedrooms and sleeping porches. I... Continue reading

Didier is a professionally trained chef from Nice, France turned motorcycle-riding poisonnier in my hometown of Jacksonville. He's known to have the best catch in town, though you wouldn't know it by looking at his shop's humble exterior - isn't that always the way? Lately, when I've visited home, my... Continue reading

I have to 'fess up: this DIY was totally inspired by my '90s childhood. Like most girls, I was pretty into friendship bracelets and hair wraps. Frankly, I'm still pretty into friendship bracelets, although I draw the line at hair wraps. And overalls. So far. I've wanted to add some... Continue reading

That definitely seems like a possible solution! In that case, I would recommend carefully gluing down the edges of the fabric as close to the edge of the shade as possible to prevent the edges from curling over time.
It's no secret: Baggus are my jam. I try to keep one of their nylon bags on me at all times so I never, ever need to use a disposable plastic or paper one. When the drawstring on my favorite Baggu backpack broke, it was a bummer. But it also... Continue reading

Hi Grace! You can buy new ones on the Dr Scholls website :)'s/Sandals/_/Products.aspx
Whaaaaaa, you say? I'll explain. First, a little backstory: one of my favorite desserts in NYC is the Blackberry Eton Mess Fool at Peels. I've had a few birthday dinners there; the food is always tasty, the atmosphere lively but not raucous, and the cocktails are delicious. Dessert is always... Continue reading

Above, a vintage Airstream turned vintage ephemera shop When the lovely folks at Country Living invited me to join them for a special peek into their Rhinebeck fair, I couldn't think of a better way to kick off my birthday weekend. I rose at an uncharacteristically early hour (Um. It's... Continue reading

Awhile ago, I wrote about the lessons this year has taught me. As I entered my 30th year of life on Sunday, June 9th, it felt right to think about and share some of the stuff I’ve learned in life so far, in no particular order. These are probs nothing... Continue reading

I admit it: every year, I enter to win the HGTV Dream Home. They’re always located in an interesting place, executed with thoughtful & locally-inspired design, and full of unique details.

I've always been a fan of West Elm, but I especially love the way they've made a point of working with independent artists and artisans lately. Whether this comes from a genuine love for craft, is a play to make a giant company feel more friendly, or a little of... Continue reading

This past weekend, I got to do something CRAZY fun. But first, a little back story. Ever since I started getting to do a little design work in my job several years ago, I've been pretty obsessed with Pantone. You might remember the roundup I did when they announced the... Continue reading

That’s my grandmother above, enjoying a nice day on the porch in her playsuit. Isn’t she a knockout? Now that warm days are here again (both in NYC and in my hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, from where I'm happily posting this), I’m looking forward to spending a lot of time... Continue reading
