Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Aaron and I aren’t big Valentine’s Day people. We don’t go all out because Aaron’s birthday is at the tail end of December and mine is the week after V-day, plus we just got each other gifts for Christmas…it’s just gift overload for us this time of year! But we usually share a heart-shaped pizza from Papa John’s and exchange a small gift. Last year, Aaron got me a sweet print from Roll & Tumble Press and I got him a bottle of Maker’s Mark (anything with red wax on it counts as romantic, right?). How do you celebrate V-day?ValentineGiftsforHim

2012 : Top Posts and Fave Instagram Photos


Manscaping, Phase 2 : A Guest Post from Aaron

The post heard ’round the world! For some reason, this post struck a chord with Pinterest users everywhere and turned Aaron into an internet star. Or, in his words, “Move over, Keyboard Cat! I’m an internet sensation!” When we finished up our front yard landscaping project, we chose to use recycled, biodegradable newspaper in place of that black weed blocker fabric. That little eco-friendly detail made this my most popular post by a long shot.

So I guess it makes perfect sense that the first half of that project was my second most popular post of the year. I’m trying to not be a total brat about the fact that my two most popular posts of the year WERE WRITTEN BY AARON.

84th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Fashion Recap : Oscars 2012 or “How Billy Got His Groove Back”

If I know anything, it’s this: you guys love a fashion recap. This year was no different, with the Golden Globes and the Emmys showing strong numbers. But the award for most views goes to the Oscars Fashion Recap. I’d like to thank the Academy and Billy Crystal’s jowls. {view past fashion recaps here}


The Big Door-y Reveal

Back in January, Aaron and I spent a weekend replacing seven (!) interior doors in the hallway and master bedroom. This was what our hallway looked like before the new doors, and just looking at this photo makes me sad. Excuse me while I go stand in my bright, happy hallway for a moment. (P.S. Replacing doors is hard. Which is why we still have seven left to replace. In the future, we’ll set our pace to one door per year or so.)


Light Strawberry Cupcakes

Another post whose Pinterest popularity caused it to skyrocket into a top post position. Did you know that diet soda and a cake mix make the most delicious diet cupcakes of all time? No? Well then, today is your lucky day…

My hostess-y Christmas wish list


Miss me? I’m chalking up my absence to a particularly busy holiday season and hope to be back and blogging regularly after the New Year (fingers crossed!). In the meantime, check out the At Home in Arkansas blog where I blog regularly and also where I shared my hostess-inspired Christmas wishlist today!Rosemary's Wishlist | | For At Home in Arkansas

Fit as a Fiddle

Every few years, a new trendy accessory de rigueur emerges that it seems designers and stylists can’t resist. I could sit here and pretend like I’m too cool to fall for trends like that, but if I’m being honest, I’m just mad I can’t afford the Cabinet of Natural Curiosities. Plus, there’s totally a chunk of coral in my bathroom and I consider buying antlers every single time I see some.

So basically, I’m in no way above ubiquitous design trends. That being said, I’m already aboard the fiddle-leaf fig train.

These indoor trees are becoming familiar fare for readers of shelter mags like House Beautiful and Elle Decor. Their oversized leaves make them a sculptural design element in any room. And they’re so versatile – whether you’re thing is earthy, boho chic or classic glam sophistication. (Pssstt…can anyone tell me the original source for the image above?)

And depending on the space you have and the amount of drama you want, you can have a lot of fiddle leaf fig…

Or just a little.

And from what I hear, they’re relatively low maintenance. Which is awesome for plant killers like me. Suddenly, my piano is starting to look a little lonely against its wall.

What do you think? Is this a trend you’d partake in?
