Gorgeous Chair Inspiration (via Google Image Search)

Have you tried Google’s newish tool that let’s you search using an image? Basically, instead of typing text into the search bar you upload an image and Google Finds similar images. I tried it this morning with a gorgeous chair that Jodi told me about last night. It’s sold out on One King’s Lane, but […]

Pantry Organization

Our pantry is now prettier…and a bit more organized, too. One of my favorite pantry organizing tips is to use Lazy Susans (turntables) wherever you can. I use three in my pantry right now. You can see two of them here. They’re perfect for corners because with one quick spin you can see what you […]

Berry Crisp Recipe

I just have to share one of my favorite recipes with you. I’ve been making it for years. It’s the perfect thing for the day you come home from the farmer’s market with fresh berries. The recipe came from one of those “magazines” that you probably get from your local hospital. Quick, relatively healthy, yummy… What you […]
