My “theme” other than Halloween was to bring in as much black and white as I could. I wanted spooky without scary. Creepy without nightmares… you get the idea. I was also hoping to do it all on a budget so most of these items are from flea markets and thrift stores, with a hat tip to 50% off at Michaels.
At 9:12 most mornings, I’m walking home from preschool drop off with the world as my oyster. Anything is possible and the day is young. It occurred to me recently that if NYC Housewife Sonja Morgan could have an intern, than heck yeah… so could I. The following is a rough draft of what my intern job description might entail in no particular order.
Week 2 of the One Room Challenge and I’m waiting on a couple of deliveries. Specifically, wallpaper, lighting and… goodies for a last minute plan for the floor situation. Until those arrive, I figured this would be the perfect week to quickly build a table for the back wall, prep the floor and take care of a new shower curtain.
Two weeks ago, I had the chance to gather with my people in Brooklyn, NY. Bloggers and makers and lovers of design came together for the annual Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker event. It’s simultaneously inspirational and aspirational as friends and mentors and style leaders come together to teach, laugh and share stories.
We’ve moved on from our first house and the lavender dining room where this once hung, so now this stenciled Goodnight Moon art hangs in a place of prominence over the mantel. Just saying these words brings me right back to gently rocking one of my babies to bed. It’s an easy project, but one that means so so much to our family!
