project 23: cottage socks

I don’t know about you, but all these chunky yarn–made things on Pinterest are making me swoon. Maybe not the most practical at times, but they would definitely engulf you in warmth like I imagine jumping into clouds would feel like. (Only in my dreamland of course… clouds are actually super wet and cold… seemsContinue reading “project 23: cottage socks”

project 20: DIY pom pom garland tutorial!

Have you guys all seen those cute pom pom garlands for sale on Pinterest/Etsy/everywhere? Well, I was stalking them a little bit… and… I decided to make one of my own. Pom poms make everything (at least to me) more lighthearted and fun. It’s like candy that never goes rotten… and you can put itContinue reading “project 20: DIY pom pom garland tutorial!”

project 19: festival crop top

I know that many people are craving fall weather, but that’s all we’ve had here in San Francisco. We’ve had chilly days, and apparently the coldest July in recent history. Our summer is coming up here in a month or so and I am super pumped about it. I’m getting ready with all my summerContinue reading “project 19: festival crop top”

project 18: sunglasses case tutorial!

I’m one of those irresponsible types that tries really hard to be responsible. This leads to things like buying 5 pairs of sunglasses a year because I can’t keep track of them, they fall and break (don’t look at my phone… I’m really surprised it’s lasted this long), or the lenses get all scratched up.Continue reading “project 18: sunglasses case tutorial!”

project 16: farmer’s market bag

The BYOB (bring your own bag) trend has been around for a long time now, and I’m hoping it’s here to stay. It definitely seems that way at least here in the city. A few years ago, city council passed a law taxing all bags (including paper) that you receive from a merchant, anywhere fromContinue reading “project 16: farmer’s market bag”

project 15: tiny triangle cowl

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone had a marvelous and fun-filled weekend! I know we did! We pursued the streets of the Fillmore Jazz Festival here in San Francisco, and ate anything we could find that came from a cart (which amounted to two too-full bellies, and happy faces), and the today ofContinue reading “project 15: tiny triangle cowl”

project 13: cast iron handles (and a free recipe!)

Hello all and happy Thursday! This week I wanted to showcase two things that have been almost a daily staple for my life this Fall: cast iron and broccolini. In recent months we’ve obtained a few cast iron skillets as a gift from my grandmother, and now don’t know how we lived without them. OurContinue reading “project 13: cast iron handles (and a free recipe!)”

project 12: DIY felted elbow patches

Hey readers! Happy Wednesday! If you live in the United States, I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend. We took advantage of the holiday by wine tasting for the first time. A few friends planned such an extraordinary day and we were so lucky to be a part of such a fun group.Continue reading “project 12: DIY felted elbow patches”

project 10: million-dollar socks

Hello all and happy Wednesday! I hope you enjoyed your long Memorial Day weekend (if you’re reading from the U.S.). I know we definitely did. My hunky man and I traveled to the valley to experience a little more heat and we sure took advantage of it! Kayaking, rock climbing and dancing the night away…Continue reading “project 10: million-dollar socks”

project 8: cozy cowl

Hello there and happy Friday! I hope you’re all staying warm under blankets with some hot tea… Maybe a fire in the fireplace? That sounds like my happy place. The past few days have been perfect pajama days due to the super rainy weather. I even finished up a project I’ve been putting off forContinue reading “project 8: cozy cowl”
