DIY J Crew inspired corsage shirt

how to make a J Crew-y corsage shirt

Have you seen these sweet corsage shirts? J Crew always has a darling variety, but I’ve seen them floating around at Mini Boden and Gap as well. They feel especially apropos with Spring right around the corner (I should note that the first flower spotting of Spring in Denver was always a huge boost of […]

make your own detox waters- tropical style

how to make your own detox water (tropical style!)

I am kind of a slow learner. I discover something that makes a giant difference for my overall wellbeing, and if it doesn’t become a daily habit, I kind of forget about it. Then, I am somehow reminded of that game changer and happily take it back up. That’s how it goes for me with […]

watercolor painted wooden silverware

add watercolor paint to wooden/bamboo silverware for perfectly customized party cutlery!

I have been smitten with bamboo silverware ever since I saw it as part of a laid back, picnic-y wedding in a Martha Stewart Wedding magazine onceuponatime.

I always think of salads as summer fare, even though I eat them for dinner pretty much year ‘round (and I’m sure you do too!). Lately, I’ve been getting creative with my salad toppings and rediscovered an old kojo recipe for rosemary brown sugar walnuts. I am smitten with these yummies and, really, it’d be […]

the yummiest churro bar


So once upon a time, back a few months ago, we had a Churro Bar as part of Piper’s Sparkle Party. But then I never shared it on here. Churros and a whole buffet of dipping sauces need to be shared, y’all, even a few months late. And this is perfect for those of you […]

happy 2015!

2015 word of the year- connect

If you’ve been around here for very long, you know that I lo-ove New Years. List making, organizing, reflecting, goal making, fresh start-ing, glitter- all of these are right up my alley. And this year is no exception. So far I’ve organized and deep cleaned my studio (which is also the playroom), made five lists […]
