d.i.y. anthro: doily drops


Wow, was I smitten with Anthro's "Doily Drop" earrings... so shiny and candy-colored... like wearable little petit fours, no? Alas, pink and confectionary though they were, that $198 price tag kept me away. Far, far away. But thanks to some scalloped brass blanks from Etsy and OPI's "Coney Island Cotton Candy" polish (gosh, I wish they paid me to say that), I was able to replicate these little darlings for a fraction of the price tag. Enjoy the silent tutorial.

pony up


So, one thing about hosting frequent house guests: it supplies a LOT of deadlines for smaller, more manageable projects like this little closet makeover. Our guest room closet was beat up and boring. The dominant feature was a gaping hole punched through the drywall where somebody once did some plumbing.

spring baskets


Well, we're about midway between Easter and Earth Day, so I'm covering my celebratory bases with these little "Welcome Spring!" baskets for the neighbors. 

It's been a busy month with new chicks, new garden boxes, and new adventures hosting out-of-towners... but I took last Sunday afternoon to try out this recipe for Meyer lemon curd and this one for lavender lemon cookies, and both were too delicious to keep to myself.
