Spring Cleaning. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. It started a few weeks ago with cleaning out our pantry and refrigerator. It continued last week with emptying out of basement. And this weekend I deep cleaned our kitchen. But here is the interesting part. Before I started the “deep cleaning”, I “spring cleaned my cleaning products” first.
One of the saddest things about the digital age is that we have all forgotten the art of letter writing. Just think about it. When was the last time you sat down to write a letter? With a pen and a piece of paper?
There is something about writing your thoughts out by hand on physical paper, and sealing it in an envelope, that makes the message feel much more personal and enjoyable. I think that the art of writing letters is a lost art that we need to revive together.
Ok. It’s confession time. I am a snob about a few things in my life. I like really good coffee. I am obsessed with Apple products. And I only shop with really cool shopping bags. Don’t ask me why I care so much about my shopping bags but I am a total bag snob.
Visiting Europe over the holidays has been magical. Although we visited England, France and Switzerland I have to say my favorite country has been France. Over the last few days, I have been discovering the beauty of France. And I think I fell in love.
We are spending our Christmas holidays in London! I know that Christmas was yesterday, but if I had to guess most of you are still enjoying your Christmas tree, decorations and leftovers.
While we were sweltering in the heat and humidity in Taipei I couldn’t help but notice a lot of fall decor popping up on my favorite Instagram feeds. At first, I thought it was a fluke but soon it appeared as if everyone was changing seasons on me. This was all happening behind my back while I was really far from home. What the heck?
I know what you are thinking. Huh? But I have an app that I use all of the time… and I couldn’t help but share it. I love it because look what it does to my photos.
I am addicted to chalkboards. I love the painted signs I have hanging in my house. But there is something really fun about making your own sign that fits your mood of the day! And a chalkboard is the perfect way to make a statement every day.
There are a few things that I see on Instagram all of the time. Rae Dunn? Duh. Shiplap? Definitely. Signs? Mmmhmmm. But one of the more under the radar pieces that I’ve noticed is this whitewashed window mirror from Pier 1 and the different variations of this window mirror look.
Thanks to Kala of Kalakleindesigns for letting me use this photo!
I have been somewhat obsessed with wooden chandeliers lately. Especially the white distressed ones. I know exactly where I would put these three chandeliers in my home. But the cost has kept me from buying any of these lamps.
