One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday is something I call a House Shuffle. Really I just move decor from one room to another. Sometimes it’s the smallest tweaks that make me happy for weeks after!
My mom gave me the two crocks you see – the big one on the floor and the small one on the buffet. The big one has been outside for a year, and the little one downstairs tucked away. I just moved them both to these new locations, and I feel like I have a little bit of country farmhouse in my living room now!
I’ve also had this tray downstairs on the marble top table for ages. I couldn’t think of a good spot for it, as it’s really heavy and has some nails underneath that can scratch surfaces so I never wanted to put it on anything wood that it might get dragged across. I randomly carried it up to my room and it ended up in my closet holding my perfumes that were all just lined up against the wall. I think this is the perfect spot for it!
Survivor + Chocolate
Ethos Chocolate sent me some samples, and this one is my favorite. Ironically, I enjoyed it while watching Survivor! Fitting too because of the tropical fruit.
My intern Emily is married to the owner of Caribe Juice, which makes some really delicious cold-pressed juices from tropical fruit sourced in the Dominican Republic. The Starfruit Limeade is my fav! I’ve been mixing a little juice with seltzer on weeknights and it’s taken my mocktail game to a whole new level.
To Black Out Or Sun Share?
I do not yet have blackout curtains in Birch’s room. I know many people swear by them and ultimately if they were already installed that would be great. I’m still wondering if he really needs them. If he never has them, won’t he just get used to napping in daylight?
I’m avoiding them because 1) the cost of curtains and rods 2) drilling the rods into plaster will make a huge mess 3) we already have blinds in there so it’s dim but not dark when they are closed.
So my question is, do any of you NOT have blackout curtains and have great sleepers?
