I can’t even begin to explain my love of a good tray. They serve a million different functions. We use vintage bamboo trays when we are having BBQs so our guests can hold all their refreshments. I use them to help corral toys around our house - they are especially helpful when playing with play-doh or coloring and we are going between the kitchen and the playroom. I also keep one at my front door so I can throw all my junk in it during the week and then take it around the house with me at the end of the week and put all the items where they belong.
But the best use for a tray, in my opinion, is to help draw the eye to a collection. Just like an area rug helps pull the room together, a well placed tray will help pull the decor of your table together. Read More
If you have followed me for awhile, you know we have a 6 year old Havanese named Hemingway. As the name suggests, Havanese are from Havana, Cuba. We wanted a name that captured his homeland but were a little worried screaming something like "Castro" at a dog park on Capitol Hill might raise some eyebrows.
We are those crazy dog people. Which is fitting because our dog is crazy. I don't mean, quirky. I mean...he is on Prozac for separation anxiety and escapes most enclosures kind of crazy. Bless it. He is so sweet and so nuts.
I was cleaning out my phone the other day and came across some pics of our trip years ago to Key West and was laughing at how we just HAD to go see Hemingway's House because of our dog. Turns out, it was and is one of my favorite and most inspirational spaces I had ever seen. Read More
My feet are tired and my heart is happy!
It took a tremendous amount of take out food and my village of parents and friends but Lord-Help-Me....we are in the new house!
I am not even going to get into it but nothing has made me feel as old as this move has. I am just brain dead and worn out and I can't find my foundation and I am not entirely mad about that. (Ha!)
But I feel incredibly blessed to have this home and be in it with these folks that I love so dearly. I am just saying, a pedicure and nap are in my future. Probably incredibly distant future. You know, Grayson turning 15 kind of future but damn it....it is there. Read More
I had another post planned for today but when news broke about Kate Spade's death, I don't know, I got really upset.
I am going to be honest, I sort of grew out of her stuff a few years ago but that doesn't mean I don't still have a few of her purses or dresses (that I still love). I especially love this dress I bought for my engagement pictures years ago that was so special to me... Read More
