Little Yellow Couch cut a pair of headphones in half and made bookends out of them!  Genius, right?  I love the vintage appeal.  The kind of DIY projects that I would buy if I saw them in a store are some of my favorites.

Home Happenings – September ’14

chalk on bricks

SEPTEMBER // More than starting a new calendar year, Septembers always signal an ending and the beginning of something special, or at least new, and this September was no different.  I felt a profound shift brought on by aligning my values with my actions and it unexpectedly feels like the universe is giving me a high five for it.  Things are opening up.  Life is expanding.  And there’s an excitement in the air because of it. I’m still debating whether […]

30 and Thankful

30 and thankful copy

When I was younger, I remember asking my mom what it’s like to be old (like in your thirties old which is ancient when you’re not even in the double digits yourself).  Was it scary?  She had a how-can-I-put-this-into-words look and told me that, No, it isn’t scary.  You learn to be comfortable with yourself and you don’t actually ever feel old.If I’ve been a bit remiss on the blog lately it’s because I’ve had a slew of visitors stopping […]

Fun with the Sun

1 - Kids Craft Sun Prints by Brave New Home

Today I have a fun little project to share with you.  It’s easy, you probably already have all the supplies you need on hand and you get to take advantage of those last few rays of summer sun. We were outside the other day and as the strong rays beat down on us I was reminded of these sun prints I used to make as a kid.  The heat lasts well through October in these parts so it’s still feeling […]

Touchscreen Cleaning Done Better

Gwee leaf cleaning

I’m a bit of a Luddite. I don’t seek out new ways to do things. I don’t have to have the latest and greatest gadget (case in point, my phone below). Every year I read Better Home and Gardens’ innovation issue and think, “Oh yeah, innovation…I forgot about that.” Innovation and technology can make our home lives more simple and streamlined.  Around the time I was reminded that innovation is a “thing,” I received the chance to review some touchscreen […]
