Our Newly-Reupholstered Living Room Chairs

Despite the unintended radio silence, life has continued to move along even if I fail to chronicle much of it here on the blog. The past weekend, though, I finally had a development worthy of writing about: the vintage open-arm chairs that I found for a song at an auction last year came back from the upholsterer's!

Win $150 to UncommonGoods! {A Giveaway}

What could be a better way to overcome a mid-week slump than with the chance to win $150 to a fabulous online retailer like I was thrilled when the team from UncommonGoods reached out to me, because the company features unique designs and handcrafted goods that make perfect gifts for anyone, any home, any occasion.

I'm always reluctant to endorse companies here on my blog unless I completely agree with their mission, their vision and their products. UncommonGoods stands apart in a world of big box stores and ubiquitous inventory--they provide a platform for artists and designers to reach customers who are looking for just the right piece while also supporting non-profit organizations like RAINN, Women for Women and City Harvest. It's shopping with social conscience.

Today, I'm highlighting some of my favorite products from UncommonGoods, but I'd be silly not to draw your attention to a fabulous selection of gifts for women here, a number of unique personalized gifts here and a collection of jewelry that anyone would be happy to wear here.

Here are just a few of my favorites pieces currently available at UncommonGoods:

Thank you UncommonGoods for this giveaway! Good luck, friends.

Decisions, Decisions

Before I was a homeowner, I never realized how many decisions person could possibly make during a lifetime of homeownership. From paint colors to hardware styles to fabrics, there are so many potential choices, so many directions, so many design crossroads a homeowner must cross in an attempt to make a house feel like home.

Lately, our living room fireplace has been the subject of intense deliberation around these parts.

Our Guest Bedroom {A Long-Overdue Reveal}

Hello, friends! How have you been? The past few weeks have felt like a blur as I settle into my new job during the weekdays and work on our living room during the weekends. That said, I finally have an exciting reveal worth sharing here on the blog: our guest bedroom!

I made it my mission--just as the year started--to rework the space so it more accurately reflects my evolving style.

Quince, Of Course {+ Other Garden Developments}

In the last week, our garden has erupted in color as flowering bulbs, shrubs and trees awaken to the spring. I wish we could take credit for each one, but we are the lucky beneficiaries of a previous owner's choices, which include a mature pink magnolia, a star magnolia and two coral quince.

This weekend the quince buds opened and, despite their thorns, invited me to snip some for display around the house.

Hi, friends. This post--appearing promptly on Tuesday morning--was intended to be a Monday morning post...can you tell I'm a little out-of-sorts? After a week at my new job, I'm slowly settling into a work routine and trying my best to balance all of the things I have to do with all of the things I want to do; perhaps you know how that goes, too?Acknowledging my late start, I'm happy to share the progress that was made on our living room carpentry projects last weekend.
