Remember when I mentioned I’d bought several Pendleton wool remnants because I wanted to refinish an antique wood bench I bought for my new house? Well, with the help of my artist sister, this weekend, I successfully decided which print would fit the style of the bench best and got it done. It was mostly…
I’m moving, very soon. And so, that means since I’m a homeowner, I can make things in my life a little more permanent. Like custom return address stamps, from this awesome place, which has a really fast turn around. I did a version that is just mine and then one that includes that my guy…
bathroom cross stitch.
I decided to make this cheeky cross stitch for the guest bathroom in my new home. It’s fun and ridiculous, just the way I like it. I never take myself too seriously, and this is a good example. Subversive style cross stitch is so fun and quick, too. This project took one weekend to complete.…

My guy bought me these amazing pig book ends this Christmas to showcase my Penguin cloth bound classics collection, which is now at about 30 volumes. However, because I’ve maxed out every book nook and cranny in my humble abode, I won’t be able to truly use these to display every cloth bound until I…
Gifted to me by a former student; adding to my cactus and succulent collection, and so happy to do so. I can’t live without plants, and I appreciate low maintenance ones.
