How To Use Tassels In Your Home Decor


Because you really should. Tassels make everything better. Now, obviously fort decoration is the best possible use of handmade tassels (click here to learn how to make ‘em)…but you can use them lots and lots of other places if you’re not planning to install a tent in your living room (although you should).

Make Your Own Tent (With Tassels!)

diy fort

WE MADE THIS. You will note, please, that I said “we” and not “I.” That is because I had literally nothing to do with like 99% of this project, because I am not talented like that. I do, however, have a friend, Erin, who is, and who responded to our son’s love of cave/fort things with “Well, let’s make him one!” ... Read More »

But really: there are few things in life that can’t be improved by the addition of a little neon. (Painted that penguin, too. How cute is he?) Looking for good neon paint? It’s weirdly hard to find; trust me, I’ve looked. Try Martha Stewart Satin in Lightning Bug, Orange Soda, and Lime Zinger; they’re the paints I’ve been unleashing on everything we ... Read More »

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of These)


I cannot stop making dreamcatchers these days. I’ve always loved them – the tattoo on my arm is inspired by one, and I’ve had a huge one hanging in our house ever since my dad and I picked it up on our post-college cross-country drive – but what happened to ignite the recent obsession was that I found one on ...

I wish I could write a song called “Please Don’t Throw Out Your Mirrors.” It would go something like this: “Please don’t throw out your mirrors. They are useful for so many thiiiiings!” Or something. But really: please don’t throw them out. Even if they’re kind of ugly, like my bathroom mirror pre-bathroom spruce-up. (They are useful for so many thiiiiings!) ... Read More »

Thrifted Footstool: Before And After

thrifted footstool before

I told you I legit couldn’t stop crafting. I think it’s because I’ve decided that I don’t care whether the end result is especially spectacular. I mean, it’s nice if what comes out of an hour or two spent in the company of a paintbrush and some bad reality TV is a beautiful addition to my home, but far more ... Read More »
