Shop The Space

By |July 3rd, 2015|

Good Morning from the beach!

I’m sitting outside enjoying my morning coffee and wondering if I ever have to come home.

Do I??  Maybe nah.

Good morning, friends!

I didn’t really mean to disappear last week, but it was actually a happy accident.

After the market, which I’ll blog about very soon, we were exhausted.  I had a lot of resting, cuddling, and reading to catch up on, plus lots of behind the scenes work for our online shop & blog.

After the […]

wood walls

By |June 26th, 2012|

It’s been a while since our latest home reno, and Matt and I have enjoyed the little break of just living.

Ya know what I mean?

However, our built-in building, room-painting, nail-gunning fingers are twitching to get started on a new project.

Our list is looong, but we have already […]

furniture & diy eye candy | 508 restoration and design

By |February 28th, 2012|

I love those days where the click, click, click of my keys lands me somewhere spectacular.

Don’t you??

When I landed on 508 Restoration and Design, I knew I found something special.

When I saw this yellow chest of drawers, I thought I might faint.  Until I saw the knobs […]

beautiful hardware

By |June 28th, 2011|

Since I began blogging, I have found artists, designers, and online (etsy or otherwise) shop owners I’ve fallen in love with.

And a very rare sometimes, they’re all three.

I’ve been looking forward to this package for a while now.  You guys fell in love with her work when Kristi at […]

Anthropologie in the Springtime

By |March 4th, 2011|

Not much makes me happier than walking into one of the eclectic Anthropologie storefronts.

And because I can’t walk in one in my neck of the woods, I took a little virtual spin through their Spring Collection yesterday.

Here are my favorites (and possibly items you’ll see me attempt to make or grab on sale)…
