Time for an overhaul, so the search for a forever set of dishes is on. We're going porcelain, Williams Sonoma & white for our next dinnerware set. Here's why.
Chipped dishes, scratched-up dishes, mismatched dishes...after spending so much time eating at home this year, I was just over all of it. I had some cute stoneware dishes I loved the look of, but they were scratched beyond belief and made a really awful, pull-your-hair-out squeak when your fork hit them just right. OMG, we do not need these...
We're shopping little miracles for the home, plus post-holiday sales (Pottery Barn, West Elm, Crate & Barrel) & pining to dine at Extra Virgin.
Happy Holidays! I had the treat of reading a book as a special guest with my 8-year-old's 3rd-grade class this week. We read The Story of Hanukkah together, and asked and answered questions — about stories, truth, perspective, and beliefs — and miracles. And now I'm still thinking about stories, beliefs, and miracles. Weekly Favorite Finds In Home Decor: Extra...
To spark joy, we're going sustainable. Think handmade, artisanal, eco-friendly, Black-owned, fair trade & community supporting. Beautiful home decor, right this way.
I went in search of sustainable home decor inspiration, because I wanted to take a minute to celebrate the folks out there who work extra to create, find, and/or source items that are handcrafted — by artisans, sustainably and to support communities — that this community might otherwise not have access to. All of the businesses highlighted below...
Oh, hey, 2021! We see you. We're done w/ #2020 memes & moving on to sparkly face masks, glitter balloons, party hats & champagne to celebrate NYE at home & virtually.
Anyone else ready to kiss 2020 goodbye from right behind a glitter sparkle mask? Truth be told, NYE has never been a favorite of mine. It just doesn't coordinate well with my 9pm bedtime. New Year's Day Brunch and a Big Parade...now that is my idea of fun! Oh how I do love a good mimosa, a big brunch,...
The best of our WFH / remote school set-up in home organization ideas, plus Black Girl Baking & sales at Nordstrom, The Container Store & Pottery Barn.
When I pulled together the Coffee Table Books post, it really had me reflecting on this past year and the one ahead. I was shorter on words because the visual images speak for themselves — but the reflection went deep in my heart. This has been a year unlike any other that many of us have lived through. Thinking about...
Um...This Philips pasta maker is right on time. It's our newest obsession. It's refurbished (eco-friendly, affordable) & easy to clean. WINNING.
Thank you to eBay and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. This year is all about finding little joys. That perfect first cup of coffee in the morning, the cozy holiday-movie-watching Friday night with the family, the crisp air on the neighborhood walk...it's what we have this year, so it's what we focus on. If you're a fellow food fan...
Big on beauty & on ideas, we're ogling 21 of the best coffee table books — to gift or to get for 2020-2021. Literary art w/ lifelong impact — done.
This is a collection of amazing, and relevant to #2020 coffee table books. They are largely, a little bigger, like this beauty on Humans, and this beauty on Chess Masterpieces. Some are larger-than-life in their subject matter, like this tribute to The Notorious RBG, and this tribute to the International Space Station. They are mostly hardbound, except for where...
Just the kind of challenge kids & adults need: beautiful puzzles — double-sided, round, recycled, layered...perfect for indoor family time (& also for gifts).
I am mind-blown right now, in a great way, by a puzzle. This Gray Malin Beach Puzzle is not only a beautiful work of art, it's double-sided!!! Is this concept new to anyone else? I'm so excited about it because this is exactly the kind of new challenge we need in 2021 — a beautiful double-sided puzzle seems just about...
We're on to fun pops of color for accents like umbrella stands, pendants & pillows,+ sales at WIlliams Sonoma & PB. Jungalow's on our home decor list, too.
Happy Hanukkah! I hope your first night of light was totally lit! We pulled out the electric skillet (that links to the current best sale price on the one we have — it's 10+ years into latke-making and going strong.) I do giggle when my friend Lauren refers to it as my Latke Maker — she's not wrong. We...
Chess is all the rage (oh, hey, The Queen's Gambit fans), so w/ fresh eyes, we're scooping up cool, modern chess boards — for those grandmasters in training.
If there's one holiday gift move to make this year, if you're also obsessed with The Queen's Gambit, it's this: order a Chess Board (this is my favorite) before they sell out. Holiday shopping this year is in fact a bit like speed chess — you need a good strategy and fast moves. I binged the Queen's Gambit, solo, all...
