hello again.

what’s everyone been up to this week? i’ve been laid up with a nasty cold and am generally feeling overly pregnant as of late so i’ve been trying to take it easy over here…just 2 more weeks until i’m officially ‘full term’ woohoo!

meanwhile, i’ve been directing a lot of activities from the couch, busily ordering diapers and onesies from amazon and trying to get our place somewhat organized for baby. i cannot believe we could actually meet our little babe in less than a month!

i promised a few photos of our home improvement projects last week and, though we’re not quite finished with either room, i wanted to share these ‘work in progress’ shots just for fun…

we got crafty with wooden squares, repainted our canvases and made a table from the original beams of our 1959 butterfly (which sadly rotted and had to be replaced a few weeks ago-good thing our house didn’t collapse before we realized that one-yikes!)

finally found a cool, modern chair for baby on giggle


since our place is tiny, our spare room is working double time as a tv room/nursery. as many of these little projects go, i was planning an entirely different nursery theme when all of a sudden i stumbled upon this awesome geometric throw pillow and basically designed the entire space using that color palate. gotta love target



that’s it for now! stay tuned next week for more home improvement updates, photos and maybe a fall recipe or two…!

happy weekending.



hi friends!

just popping in today to share quick little baby room photo. we’ve been doing a fair bit of nesting/home updating in the last week or so and i’m hoping to share some photos of our projects next week! until then, here’s just a little sneak peek of our babe’s new space…


counting down the weeks!

found this randomly and cannot stop laughing. creepy and oddly hysterical-the captions are fantastic! oh mrs. bufkins…


truth be told, we actually knew very little about these incredible homes until just recently when we landed our very own krisel butterfly! between the long sexy roofline, awesome mountain views and whimsical name, it’s hard not to fall in love. if you’re curious about krisel, check out this fun article in dwell. he was quite the innovator in his day and his sense of design and space still feels incredibly fresh and modern today.

i cannot wait to share some photos of our new home later this week. until then, here are a few fabulous ideas for creating a cool modern PS pad…

(a sunny entry, plush accents, a twisty topiary, pops of orange, and a lovely place to rinse after that morning swim)






ps. !

after a few wild days of painting, sanding and demo work, our place is finally ready for furniture! i’m excited to share some photos of our progress next week, but until then, here are a few fun odds and ends from my (late) sunday night pinterest spin…

happy sunday!
