Wine on the brain

Sounds like a medical condition, right? I did already tell Chris that I plan on drinking while cleaning the house tonight… But actually my previous post about the wine hanger has reminded me that we don’t have a wine rack … Read More

Holy macrame

Jane was invited to her first play date a few weeks ago (thanks Gilbert family!). And in their home hangs the most magnificent thing I’ve seen in awhile – a macrame wine bottle holder! I didn’t even know they existed!! … Read More

Tea totally

I really like these Jonathan Adler tea towels (they’re even on sale for $6 a piece), but I have no use for them. I don’t even technically know what tea towels are used for. I’ve tried to use them as … Read More
