My man and I headed out to Round Top last weekend on a mission to find a light fixture for our dining area.  For those of you who dont know, Round Top is a bi-annual flea market and antique fair 1/2 way between Austin and Houston.  Round Top caters to...

Just dye it!

So, if you were like me, you packed your closet full of lovely neutrals last year and are now in desperate need of some color!  As much as I would love to go out and buy an entire new wardrobe for spring, I am pretty sure it just isnt going...

I want to make that

My friend Matt has it made!  Matt is the mastermind behind Wood&Faulk, a regular contributor on Design*Sponge, and a part of an amazing community of craftsman and artisans in his new Portland studio.  I met Matt last year at the Tool & Tack pop-up shop here in Austin and have...

No Popcicle Sticks Here!

I found artist Jay Mohler today on Etsy and was floored when I started looking closer at his work.  The color attracted me immediately, but when I realize the scale and the intricacy I was even more impressed. Jay started making Ojos de Dios in his “hippie days” in the...

New Sign!

I have been working like a mad woman for the last 10 days making a new sign for the shop and I am so relieved to now be finished!  I still have two more “capital improvements” planned for the storefront {new lights and planters bordering the drive} but this was...

Finnish Himmeli Mobiles {DIY}

Yep, I am talking about mobiles again!  I know, I am sorry, but I was just so excited when I opened my daily inspiration email from Remodelista with a DIY tutorial on Finiish Himmeli Modiles, and I just have to share it with you.  I am getting majorly inspired by...

Modern Sewing Patterns

I wanted to do a post about modern and independent sewing patterns and pattern-makers.  It turned out to be A LOT harder than I initially thought! In this DIY world, I assumed there were some youthful, fashion forward, and well designed resources out there.  The only designer-turned-pattern-maker I knew of...

Embroidered Baby Quilt {DIY}

Is it just me or is it baby time in a major way!  Everyone I know is pregnant or just welcomed their first little one into the world.  I guess its just that time in my life and I have to admit I love it! A few months ago I...

the Purl bee

When gathering information to embark on my first quilting project, I stumbled upon the Purl bee. the blog arm of Purl SOHO.  It is such a great blog for any DIYer that loves sewing, crochet, knitting, needlepoint, and the list goes on.  Their projects are modern and relevant and range...

Quilts, Who Knew

It is hot and the shop is slow… so naturally, I have been watching quilting videos on YouTube!  Yes, I am being serious.  I will be attempting my first quilt in the next few months and even called up Grandma to see if she had any of her old quilting...

Aesthetic Outburst & Shouting Out

One of my favorite blogs, aesthetic outburst, just gave fail an amazing shout out on her site! This is especially exciting because her site is such an amazing inspiration. For instance, she has been making 20 handmade projects in 20 days, for 4 months in a row, and then GIVING...

Lindsey Adelman Lighting {diy}

Chances are you have seen Lindsey Adelman‘s pendants in the blogosphere for a while now.  For me, they are the perfect blend of modern, industrial and vintage. So of course I was VERY excited to see she she offered DIY instructions and a materials list to make your very own...

kilim painted rug {diy}

It has been a few months since our cohabitation and I am still struggling with getting the new mix of furniture, vintage & modern, just right.  After a late night consultation with my stylist (Jessica) we decided that one of the last things needed to balance out the now more...

I am a diy fanatic.  It is a problem really- too many projects and too little time.   However, I might actually make time to do this one! The ladies at Honestly…WTF came up with this easy and amazingly stylish hex nut bracelet.  They were inspired by the new Phillip Crangi...

Cleaning Silver 1-2-3

Depending on the climate, your body ph, hand soaps,  hair products, and various other factors, silver jewelry can tarnish rather quickly.  It is also not always easy to polish them with a polishing cloth and get into all the little nooks and crannies.  But fear not, you dont have to...
