I have created the loveliest hostess gifts in the last couple of weeks.
To be fair, it’s not a project I came up with solely on my own. Terrariums are kind of a thing right now so if you’ve paid attention to the style blogs lately, I’m not doing anything that the big girls haven’t [...]
Last Friday night I cooked dinner for two and decided to pull out some table linens for the meal. My cousin Stacy gave them to me years ago and this was the first time I actually used the table cloth. I loved the scene and quickly snapped a photograph of it while making my mom’s [...]
A couple of weeks ago, I went to the most adorable DIY wedding with my boyfriend to see his best girlfriend from high school marry her med school sweetheart. It was a gorgeous ceremony, held on a family friend’s private property on Bainbridge Island, WA (a small island just a short ferry ride [...]

Last week I received one of the nicest cards from a dear friend from high school. We visited over the break and I had the chance to meet her adorable new son, to “oo and ah” over how he looked like the perfect mix of both parents and visit with her cousin, another good [...]
I’m tickled pink to have my blog back. So, I’ll post two in one day–err, one evening.
After spending the first month and a half in my new studio painstakingly decorating every last corner, I finally had my friends over to celebrate my new place in Queen Anne. It was hard to let people [...]
