Beach Day!

Beach Day!

Who else misses the beach?? As much as I would love to go and lay out on the sand and hear the water, it's still not the time to indulge. The next best thing? Create a bit of the beach mentality in your outdoor space! You absolutely don't need much space (more later on decking out small spaces!) but you can still feel like you are only a day away from a beach adventure! How cute are our rustic handmade shelves?? You can dress them any way that you like and they really pop on a wall. I am going to have so much fun playing with ways to change them up based on my moods. One of my new projects is to turn a small outdoor space into a functional multi use area. This shelf would be a perfect way to all sorts of fun things on my plant wall! More to come as I set it all up! Our mastermind creative team is also looking into offering this with a gold finish! Just a touch more fanciness to any space and let's be honest, who doesn't love a bit of gold? Can't wait to see what they come up with!

Father’s Day: Success!

Father’s Day: Success!

How was everyone’s Father’s Day yesterday?  I celebrated with the special guy in my life...in this home, we like celebrating each other when we can. On a pretty day, that means a manly cookout in our gorgeous backyard. It always amuses me when I literally put everything together and he turns on the grill and throws some burgers on. However, I guess it’s all about perspective...he thinks he was A) in charge and B) the mastermind behind the success of the night. Luckily he is cute and I let him shine (but secretly knowing that I’m the work horse and the brain in this relationship!).

Yet again, our cutting board/prep center saved the day so that I could load up in the kitchen and bring everything in one go to the grill for toppings. Not only are these boards beautiful but they are versatile and lightweight for carrying around. The hardest part was taking some photos while holding back the big guy from diving into the burgers. My favorite side dish rounded out the yummy meal....blistered shishito peppers with a squeeze of lime right off the grill. Yum!

Eating with our Eyes!

Eating with our Eyes!

So I have a confession...while I absolutely love cooking, during this quarantine, I have cooked waaay more than I ever wanted to. There literally comes a time when I cannot even think about eating something else that I have made for myself! Do you ever feel that way?? In addition (here is where my self rationalization kicks in), I really want to support our local restaurants so that they are around once our city opens up more fully. So, takeout meals occur with some regularity. However, there comes a time in one’s life where takeaway food shouldn’t necessarily have to be eaten right from the disposable container it comes in. We eat with our eyes first right? Presented in the right way, delivery food can take on a restaurant quality meal. This is just one of the reasons that I love our handmade wooden platter. So dang versatile, you can use it for so many things. One of my favorite ways is to present food on it. Whether it’s an appetizer or main course, these gorgeous pieces make whatever you have on them shine! I mean... I could have made this prepackaged sushi at home with hours of prep work right? My eyes say...absolutely!

Quarantine To-Do's

Quarantine To-Do's

I don't know about ya'll but I have been working from home for over 3 months now and while I have finally come up with some structure to my days, I find myself getting antsy to get out. To combat those feelings, I have been looking for all sorts of projects around the house! As many of you have done or are currently doing, organizing my life seems to be the one thing that makes me feel better! I have a bunch of recipes that I have been given me over the years and most of them are on post-it notes and random.  This is the perfect time to think about organizing them and making them more accessible. I didn't actually get around to doing it but I was reminded again as Father's Day is barreling down on me. So hence, the post today!  How cute is this organized with my thank you cards and other things that I want to keep close to me so I remember to actually use them?  I loved it so much that I think I am going to make a whole new one for future gifts.  Not forgetting the wonderful man in my life, I am going to use one of our rustic crates to create a custom BBQ gift basket for him! There are so many uses for these handy, hand-made crates and I just love thinking of new uses for them. Hopefully you will check back on our blog to see all the multiple ways that we come up with - I will post them as we create them!  Also, we would love for you to share your ideas with us - you can find us on Facebook and Instagram too!
