Investing in Art

I’m one of those nuts who is moved by clay. I love “art” (meaning very debatable, but I’m referring to visual art here) in general, and ceramics in particular. And I’m trying overall in my home to have less but have better; to surround myself with objects and art that I love and inspire me, … More Investing in Art

Five Year House Tour

In honor of our sweet little 60’s ranch and five tumultuous years together, I’m sharing a whole house tour! I’ve never shared the whole place at once, mostly because we’ve been in constant project mode since moving in. But this summer, just shy of 5 years of owning it, our entire home was shot for … More Five Year House Tour

Dressing Room Update

Not a ton has changed in this little workhouse of a room, but I’m excited to share its cuteness after some small updates.
