I am the first to admit that when November comes around, with thoughts of holiday travel and house quests, my nesting instinct kicks in.  Anything that can be done to organize and make things less stressful for the next two months is very appealing.

Anyone who knows even the slightest thing about me, knows Fall is my season!  In jeans and sweaters, taking salty walks on the beach and visiting cities where the smell of changing leaves is in the air.  In our home, the nesting and prep for hibernation begins with a few things on our Fall To Do List.

Do You Have A Wabi-Sabi Kitchen?

The Perfectly Imperfect Kitchen

Kitchen projects are some of the most popular for everyone.  We all want our kitchens to be the best they can be.  It does not matter if you are a weekend DIYer, or have a full contracting crew to help you create the kitchen of your dreams….you will most likely have to deal with an element that is not quite “perfect”.

The Humble Orange Is How This Blog Started

Gorgeous color, refreshing fragrance, and an explosion of taste.  For me a white bowl of oranges on the table inexpensively adds to the decor and reminds us to take a few minutes out of our days and treat ourselves.  I like that oranges remain defiant in today’s constant on the go lifestyles.  No matter how you prepare….peeling, slicing, or segmenting….an orange takes a little time and is deliciously messy!
