  As you may remember from last week, I updated a vintage cane bench and am using it at our kitchen table as banquette-style seating: That got me thinking about how I've mixed and matched my seating arrangements around my table for quite some time, and I thought it might be worth … [Read more...]

  A few months ago, I purchased and installed a pair of brass sconces in the MCC House. Because we're renting and I had no desire to add electrical boxes in our old plaster walls, I opted for plug-in sconces instead of hardwired ones. Today I thought I'd show you a few photos of where I … [Read more...]

  This is always the time of year where I like to make a few changes around the house. Once the holiday decorations are put away and I've had a chance to get through my annual January purging and organizing, I turn my attention to "fluffing" the house.

I literally woke up this morning and realized that the Super Bowl is tomorrow! I don't think I've watched a NFL game in three or four years but a lot of times we will at least tune into the Super Bowl for the commercials since they are so funny and creative. We used to always host a party and it was … [Read more...]
