This weekend I have plenty of projects I’d love to take on. My yard needs to be cleaned up to prep for the winter (and I’m going to plant garlic and fava beans), I have some things I need to make for Curbly and this blog, and I even want to start tackling some nursery […]
Years ago, I saw instructions on how to make kokedama, plants with their roots wrapped in moss, and I’ve been meaning to try it ever since. Over the years I saw the project pop up again and again, but the instructions always seemed a bit intimidating. So when I saw that a free class on how […]
Are you ready for Halloween? I haven’t really gotten any decorations up yet, except for this Halloween snake wreath I made for Curbly. If you want to make your own, the full DIY tutorial is here. But if it’s too subtle for you, you can try the skeleton one below that I made last year. […]

This week, for the first time ever, I decorated a fall mantel. It was fun and easy, and I recommend giving it a try even if you’ve never done it before! Here’s my step-by-step guide on how to replicate this look, plus how to make cheap plastic fake pumpkins look a lot classier.
After being sick for a while, yesterday I FINALLY felt a little bit more like my normal self, so I got my butt in gear and snapped some photos of our updated guest room. It’s not too different, but there are a couple of tweaks that I think really improved the space.
Sorry for taking an unannounced blogging hiatus. Last week there was a death in my family, and the situation has been really stressful. When it rains, it pours, so I’ve also been sick for a while, and all of the above, plus the general state of the world, has really been sapping my creativity and […]
