If I had a million dollars!

If I had a million dollars!

When I was back in college and mix CDs were still cool, a girlfriend of mine made me a mix she aptly titled, “Happy Tunes” (not to be confused with Looney Tunes). Among the Natasha Bedingfield and Norah Jones tracks slipped this one little song by Barenaked Ladies, “If I had a Million Dollars”. The … Continue reading

What’s up with all the Pellegrino?

What’s up with all the Pellegrino?

My decision to make some changes in our kitchen has had me browsing through oodles of pictures of lovely farmhouse kitchens, sleek white cabinetry, and exposed kitchen shelving. I’ve seen white cabinets, cream cabinets, door-less cabinets, open shelving, builders grade cabinets, custom cabinets, and cabinets with chicken wire stretched across the doorframes (how cool would … Continue reading

My Inspiration

My Inspiration

As I confessed on Wednesday, I have picked up nary a paintbrush or hammer in the past week. The Hubs has breathed a little easier knowing he can come home without walking into a “guess what’s different in this room!” game (guess which one loves that game and which one hates it! Here’s a hint: … Continue reading

Evolution of a gallery wall, continued.

Evolution of a gallery wall, continued.

Hi, my name is Hannah, and I am addicted to picture frames. Somebody needs to stop me. I can’t help myself! It’s like doing crack… only in this case, crack = picture frames. Not that I’ve ever done crack, but if I DID, I think it would feel something like this. I love picture frames. … Continue reading

New Year Resolutions: Cottage Style

New Year Resolutions: Cottage Style

Yes, that was a shameless reference to PSY’s Gangnam Style, which was basically song of the year for 2012. Hmm, that reminds me, 2013 needs a new song of the year! Any suggestions?   You’re welcome. Anyway, I’ve been kinda-sorta following along with Apartment Therapy’s January Cure. Here’s what they have to say about it: … Continue reading

This is the last time, I swear!

This is the last time, I swear!

The funny thing about style is that it is so intensely PERSONAL. What one person loves, another person loathes. A style that puts one person into a mood of calm & relaxation can seem stifling or boring to someone else. Maybe you adore falling into a mound of fluffy throw pillows at the end of … Continue reading

An English cottage Christmas

An English cottage Christmas

The cool thing about writing a blog is that I can assume everyone else wants to talk about what I want to talk about! When my little fingers type up these posts, no one yells, but Hannah! That’s boring/overdone/seen it already! Nope, there’s just blissful silence, broken only by the ticka-ticka-ticka of the keyboard. Today, … Continue reading

Getting in touch with reality.

Getting in touch with reality.

Reality bites. It really does. My obsession with decorating books and magazines only serves to make this fact more painfully obvious! The latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens? Be still my heart. There’s nothing I love more than a French Farmhouse-inspired home decked out for the Holidays in vintage splendor (but seriously- white everything? … Continue reading
