Jonathan Adler in my Bedroom

Well, I had Nate Berkus in my dining room. I might as well have Jonathan Adler in my bedroom. It’s driving me bananas that my bedroom redecorating is not yet complete. Up until yesterday, I actually had a Christmas tree in there. (I put it up about two weeks ago in order to work ahead […]

Succulent Pumpkin Planter

Hey there, friends! Happy Monday. I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are doing well. It’s been a few years since I carved a pumpkin. Probably seven years to be precise.

A Day in NYC

Wow. As much as I LOVE Fall Cookie Week (and I hope you do as well), it has put me a bit behind in keeping you up to date with what’s been happening around here. Even though I’ve spent a good deal of time in the kitchen lately, there have been other events that I’m […]
