It’s Friday already, so I’m back with a list of things that have been on my mind and what’s been inspiring me on the internet in the past week. It includes an update on our foster dog, the audiobooks I finished this week, a 1950s house tour, a good laugh, a new tea kettle, a homemade kombucha update, thoughts on our food, unique artwork, and a hot tip on traveling for free!
I posed an open-ended “ask me anything!” questionnaire on Instagram last week and got oodles of questions. So, I’m here to answer them for you. Every. Single. One. I’m hoping this gives you more insight into who I am, more about the house, and my tricks of the trade. Enjoy!
The highlight of my week, kitchen and bathroom trend predictions, a helpful book I’m digging, a PSA, a minimal kitchen and a moody one, plastic-free toilet paper, news from everyone’s favorite design blog, a new perspective on Marie Kondo decluttering, and more!
My house was featured on Emily Henderson’s blog! Eeeeek!
A weekly recap including a custom-framed heirloom, a foster dog, a bathroom, my motto, Marie Kondo show, holiday storage, my playlist, and more!
Throughout 2018, hundreds of thousands of people have read my blog posts. (first off, thanks for reading and being here!) After all that perusing, I looked back to see which posts were read the most and I identified the most popular ones that were enjoyed in 2018.
Happy 2019!! This past year FLEW by. I definitely didn’t accomplish all the things I hoped to, but it was definitely year of great experiences and change. Let’s take a look back at 2018 and see what’s comin’ in 2019.
Looking for organizations to support this year or into 2019? There are so many causes needing financial help, so I’ve rounded up my favorite non-profits that would appreciate your support. I hope this list of charities encourages you to donate this giving season, or at least introduces you to new organizations. If you can’t afford to donate cash, maybe a new year’s resolution is to volunteer more?
A recap of: My time in Seattle with a favorite blogger, a teaser for whats to come on my YouTube channel, an enviable holiday mantel, a minimal kitchen course I’m looking forward to, the Still We Rise auction, a dreamy kitchen, and a recap of my gift guides.
I tend not to entertain as much as I’d like to - I prefer to sit at home by myself in my PJs, I suppose. But, since I’d like to host more, I rounded up a few items that would make entertaining more fun. I think all of them would be well appreciated by the person that’s always inviting you over.
Psst! Everything is plastic free, btw.
I guess I’ve made it known that I’m a type-a neat-freak that likes cleaning, sorting, and organizing because I got a bunch of requests for an organizer gift guide. I’m not surprised because I admitted the other day that one of my hobbies is oiling my wooden utensils. Anyway, I’m a proud neat-freak, so here’s a collection of goodies for your tidying loving friend.
