Pillow Talk

It all started with this FB add…. I”ve been pinning a ton of this color lately when looking home furnishings pics. I love that deep turquoise, almost green, but in VELVETS and accented by Fur (faux of course) for fall and into holiday instead of the traditional reds and greens. So of course I lookContinue reading “Pillow Talk”

Curb Appeal

It has come to my attention that I haven’t put in nearly enough effort in the fall transition on the front porch. Honestly? It’s still summer; Technically AND in my head. Many of you are familiar with my favorite hashtag of all time #lovesummerhateeverythingelse. I can’t take credit for this tag but I do borrowContinue reading “Curb Appeal”

Lucy: the first 60 days.. and I don’t do crafts part 2.0

Well, this is the third year I’ve managed to not write a solitary thing during the month of December. I skipped November this year too. Oh well, I added to my plate remember? So, Jan 3rd is here and I have a few things to go over. I will try my hardest to write more.Continue reading “Lucy: the first 60 days.. and I don’t do crafts part 2.0”

I don’t do Halloween, part 3.

So this is the third year I’m writing about this and the truth is that I now do Halloween. After years of diffusing it and making it not so fun… I’m all in. This is partly due to the fact that I now have a few more hours a week (like 15-20) where I’m notContinue reading “I don’t do Halloween, part 3.”

The funny thing about Homegoods…

….and agreeing to help a friend pick out curtains, is that it can go one of two ways:  Boring, indecisive, wishy-washy and tears of frustration OR you pick the right friend, incorporate wine and have a few laughs and get something accomplished all at the same time. I get this text one day… “Nice”, IContinue reading “The funny thing about Homegoods…”

dipping my toes back into the water..

You know I couldn’t stay away long….from style, styling, and new products, that is. But DO NOT PANIC. I am not going back to the mall. I am still part owner of my family business and working from home and watching my kids grow. BUT, I need to be a part of something creative andContinue reading “dipping my toes back into the water..”

Summer Luvin’ had me a blast…

I came across the most amazing sentence that I can take no credit for but it sums up my occasional “seasonal depression disorder” quite nicely. (This disorder btw, I realize is totally a made up thing in the past decade by us gen-xer’s; always the innovators.) So I’m turning it into a hashtag. #lovesummerhateeverythingelse Who saidContinue reading “Summer Luvin’ had me a blast…”

on the cusp

Memorial Day weekend is such a tease. What I’m learning from my work from home role and also as the kids get older is that waiting for the end of the school year is like waiting for nail polish to dry if you are painting your nails outside in 98 degree humid July heat. ItContinue reading “on the cusp”

Theresa goes viral…

I came across the most perfect Mother’s Day inspiration today. My AMAZING mom posted a pic of my nana (who passed about 6 years ago) on her Facebook page. Then my crazy family started commenting and posting snippets of Theresa-isms. Anyone out there from a crazy Italian/American family with all the stereotypes? The made upContinue reading “Theresa goes viral…”
