Random thoughts on a chilly Saturday in February:
1. Are you watching Victoria? She is the cutest queen ever. We were watching the latest episode last night and there’s the sweetest scene between Albert and Victoria where they are making up after a fight and he looks into her eyes and you want to freeze that moment forever.
2. If you have read this blog for more than a hot minute, you know I don’t cook. But when it gets cold? I bake. Here is the recipe for the BEST pie crust on the PLANET. All you need is a cold day, three ingredients and a little time.
3. There is nothing more entertaining than 10th-grade gossip. Especially if you are not in 10th grade anymore.
4. Most of Whitney’s new room just arrived on the UPS truck and its sitting in the living room.
(total aside: if you are in the DIY and Decorating Facebook group, those were all the boxes that were all over the place in the tour).
I can’t wait to show you the before and after. She is so excited she’s pointing her toes and twirling.
Here’s to amazing Saturdays everywhere.
Let’s see what the internet has been up to this week.
Why didn’t I think of this brilliant idea?
Here’s how to use sugar lids for hooks.
Love this fun room with the mural on the wall.
She hand-drew this.
Love the coziness of this space.
And the brilliant idea to hang the throw like that on the back of the chair.
My friend, Yvonne from StoneGable (whose house is on the COVER of my latest book) has a new decorating course to help you decorate with confidence.
I adore her style and her heart.
Check out the course here.
And in random news this week:
