SHOPPING SMALL IN A BIG WAY

MY FAVORITE UNCOMMON GOODS FINDS

I love when companies support small businesses and Uncommon Goods has always been one of my favorite places to shop. The fact that they give smaller companies their support has always been a win for me as well as the fact that they…

A TACOMA PHOTOGRAPHER EMBRACES THE SPACE SHE’S IN

#mywholehome

Our home has evolved so much over the years. We've raised babies and toddlers here, now we have 3 teenagers and a first grader. The look and feel of our home has changed with every age and stage. When we moved in to this 100 year-old home there were so many things that needed updating, cosmetic and otherwise…

best side + coffee tables for small spaces

I think we’ve gone through a billion arrangements in trying to figure out how to make a small space feel large and I’ve settled for now on using our ottoman as a coffee table which isn’t a bad deal if you ask me but I’ve had some requests recently on Instagram

 

BEST HOSTESS GIFTS

Okay, maybe I lied. Maybe these gifts won’t get you invited back to the party next year but since gift giving is less about you and more about the person you are giving it to, we can all agree that these are surely gifts that will make your hosts feel thought of and loved.

How many times have you scrolled through Instagram or Pinterest and struggled with the images you see believing that the life being portrayed in those images is a far cry from what yours may look like ?

Okay, so if you've followed me for a while you know that one of the reasons this little gig was even named RH was a tribute not only to God's restoring of my own life BUT to honor my love for vintage and antique findS…

 I started this series almost four years ago over on my other blog before I switched things over here. I gave it a go for months as I felt I was led to and then after about 6 months, the desire and the passion or felt need to continue with the series fizzled and I was on to other things…

BEYOND THE PUMPKIN

Simple Fall + Thanksgiving Tablescape Inspiration

I’m all for decorating my home and setting the table with things that I already have in my own home. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE buying new things but when I AM buying those things, I typically try to purchase items that are basics and that I can use beyond just one season…

FALL TABLE INSPIRATION

I've always loved coming together and bringing new and old friends around the table. I really don't think I could have said it any better than Alice Waters. She truly, in the above quote, encapsulates why coming around the table with others means so much to me…

FRIDAY 5 | FALL FAVES

I thought it was so cute, yesterday on my IG feed someone suggested I do OOTD posts. I don’t think I will be doing them consistently any time soon but there’s no doubt that I love creating not just in homes but on my own body with my clothing…

 

GALLERY WALL INSPO + MY DILEMMA

We live in a rental. We can't touch anything in the home we live in. No new flooring, no new cabinetry, no new wall colors-nothing. Now, if you're reading this and you're a creative like me who loves changing the aforementioned more than you change your unmentionables then you understand my plight. Couple that with an architectural design that isn't exactly my own and it COULD be a recipe for disaster…

 

FRIDAY 5| LIGHTING

I've been on the search for the perfect sconces for our walls in our little cottage and since we are renters with definite restrictions, I’ll be needing a plug-in option vs. hardwire…

 

OLIVE BAR CHICKEN from THE MODERN PROPER

With all the busyness the fall season brings, I am always looking for ways to cut corners but not taste. This recipe from The Modern Proper 100% delivers in every way and I HAD to share it with you guys. It’s officially my new favorite…

 

MONDAY MUSINGS

So, yesterday I was driving along, minding my business when all of a sudden I realized that it was October 1. Now, I know that fall officially began a couple of weeks ago but for some reason, in my mind, it's really not fall until I see change in the seasons. The trees begin to fade into beautiful hues of red and golden browns and yellows and the temps truly begin. Around here, that's usually right around October…

 

I feel like that title is a little misleading. Mostly because when I say hard in the title it should actually read “really hard like can’t get outta the bed and you feel like you’re dying and you’ve lost it all…hard”. The past year was pretty rough for me. It's been a year since I've written anything not related to my book…
