Things to Watch and Read

Have you watched Brené Brown’s new Netflix special? (You can see the trailer here.) I’ve heard it’s amazing but I haven’t seen it yet because I plan to sit down with a pen and paper and take notes while I watch. That’s how much wisdom Brené delivers. If you’re not familiar with Brené, start by […]

The Color That’s Making Me Happy Right Now

There’s a color I’m loving right now. It’s not quite red, not quite orange, and not quite pink. I call it coral, but as we all see colors a bit differently, you may see it as something else. Whatever the name, I’m drawn to it for my house, my closet, even my books. My love […]

Weekend Links: Bookish Edition

Did you know that tomorrow is Independent Bookstore Day? To mark it, here are some bookish links I’ve been saving to share with you. The Best Bookstores in All 50 States. Have you been to yours? I loved this list of ways to read more. I made a note of #3 because my phone is […]

Links Worth Sharing

Happy Friday! Do you have a fun weekend in store? My whole family will be together for Easter, which I’m so happy about. Here are some things I found that I wanted to share with you this week. This tiny cottage has so much style. I think I could be very happy living there, what […]

Links Worth Sharing

Happy Friday to you! Is it feeling like Spring where you are? My daffodils are up, and I’m waiting on the forsythia bushes to finish blooming so I can bring some branches inside. This picture is from a few years ago. Here’s what I found that I wanted to share with you this week: I […]

For the Love of Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do you celebrate? Parades? Special foods? I’d love to hear. I’ve never paid much attention to St. Patrick’s Day, but when I did my DNA recently I discovered I’m 1/3 Irish! To celebrate I’m sharing a little St. Patrick’s Day love via my love of all things green. I’m looking forward […]

Links to Love: It’s Almost Spring Edition

How ready are you for Spring? It seems like the longest, hardest winter in a while, doesn’t it? Here in Kansas City, we seemed to have turned the corner with (slightly) warmer temps and rain instead of snow. Fingers crossed that things continue to improve! To hurry things along, I added these white hydrangea pillows […]

Spring Colors and Weekend Links

I’ve been craving color lately, so I added a little to the family room to welcome spring. Blue and white always works, so I added this Delft lidded jar, which was an estate sale find, to the mantel in the family room. And when the forsythia started blooming, I clipped some branches to add next […]

Around the House and Some Links I’m Loving

In September my dad was in KC for some business and a golf tournament and my mom sent with him some fabric she had that she knew I liked. I was ready to change out my kitchen cafe curtains, so I took the fabric back to Florida with me when we visited earlier this month and […]

Things I Love: Library Tables

I’ve been in love with the idea of a library table since I first knew what one was: a large writing table or desk, big enough for more than one person, like you would find in – well – a library. Antique library tables are made of wood and, while some (many?) were made for home libraries, […]
