so how was your week?! i know i’ve been in and out – but i’m coming back for real, soon. now that we’ve moved in, i see how quickly you can spend money on monotonous little details, like we needed a new doorbell – so i spent hours looking at doorbells. and obviously found the best one ever. i’ve spent so much time researching squeegees, window shades, ceiling fans, mailboxes, all these super fun things that make me realize i’m like, a boring grownup now.
the house is almost unpacked, well the living room and kitchen and our bedroom — but the other two bedrooms are basically just filled with boxes. hoping we make some progress this weekend in between a friendsgiving dinner and a whole bunch of house errands. i’m also gonna do a house tour for you asap even though it’s filled with things now. and i’ll start showing you our plans too! hooray! have a great weekend guys!
⋅ well this guy must get a lot chicks
⋅ for sure worth being fat for
⋅ cute handwritten canisters

⋅ at least they were both super nice about this
⋅ want this right now, and also on thanksgiving
now that we’re settling into the new house, i’m already looking around and obsessing about the things i want to change. we have two bathrooms and they’re both in need of facelifts, but luckily they’re both pretty large in size and could easily accommodate double sinks (which is something i’ve always fantasized about… i don’t have to get annoyed when i see husband beard hair and husband toothpaste remnants).
i’ve already been researching tiles, sconces, sinks, vanities — and i’ve noticed how insanely expensive sink vanities are, and even more importantly, how few are really that pretty like the ones i see on pinterest, maybe because the best ones are custom made (i do really love the price and look of this ikea sink cabinet though). anyway, here are my favorites.

i think you guys are fully aware how much i love mud cloth. i finally scored an authentic mudcloth tapestry at a flea market in paris, but now that the holidays are around the corner, i’ve been wanting to incorporate some into our holiday table because they add so much character to some otherwise plain napkins. keep reading
FRIDAY! we all made it. sorry for the sporadic posting as of late, but i’ve been so nuts trying to pack everything up and plan all the things and well — we move tomorrow! i am soooo ready. i shared this photo on instagram of my future studio! it’s a shed in the backyard that is in need of some updating (insulating, drywall, new floors, and i want to install a skylight and an AC unit) but i’m gonna focus on it first to get it all ready to be a proper place to work. i am so stoked. i’m going to share a house tour asap with you guys!
and lastly, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
⋅ flat logos are the thing
⋅ how effing cute is this costume?
⋅ cute little DIY place card idea
⋅ a week too late, but disturbing BTTF things you never noticed
⋅ a hard habit to break, but it’s worth breaking
⋅ this made me laugh a lot
⋅ how to properly cut a cake
⋅ this looks DELISH
you may have seen a tiny little glimpse of my future studio in the new house on instagram. there is a ton to do before being able to actually work in there — i have to insulate half of it, dry wall, redo the floors, and i’m considering adding a skylight and an additional window for more light. it might be a bit of a process but i’m hoping to focus on it first so we can get it ready asap.
maybe it’s just me – but i can’t enough little bowls. i use them for corralling jewelry, i use a couple as pinch bowls in the kitchen, i use them for sage smudging, i use them basically.
so i wanted to make a set of “ceramic” bowls for rings and bracelets — and it’s super easy. keep reading
with halloween next week — i wanted to make a little somethin’ somethin’ to spice up your candy bags. i made some of these two years ago, but these ones are even easier!
like probably everyone else in the world, i loooove marble kitchen countertops — i’ve always kind of hoped my future dream kitchen would have them. now that we’re talking about what we want to do to our real future kitchen, we’re thinking marble is not the way to go — as we’re pretty rough in the kitchen and we just don’t think they’ll be durable enough for us. so instead i’m rounding them up to just swoon over what won’t be.
