BOTB 1.25.15

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

I’ve been out of it for a couple days, I finally had my Lasik eye surgery (had to delay my original appointment) and it wiped me out for 48 hours but wow, it’s amazing that I can seeeeeee! I see mountains and leaves and birds and details I couldn’t see before without glasses or contacts, it’s life changing! I needed to rest for a couple of days, hence the belated Best of the Blogosphere … enjoy the latest roundup of inspiring projects and spaces!

This Ikea Besta buffet hack by A Place of my Taste is so fab – she added rustic wood to the doors to mimic a pricier West Elm piece.

BOTB 12.12.14 – Holiday Edition

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Weekend greetings! This week we’ve been pummeled with rainstorms here in Northern California, the flooded streets resulting in school cancelations for two days. The weather conditions have changed our schedule around but it’s been a welcome one, we’ve adapted with more holiday movies and hot chocolate, rough life. :) With the twinkle lights from the tree and the glow of the fireplace, I’m enjoying the extra moments of stillness.

I’m finally done with my holiday shopping which has also contributed to my laziness this week. This post marks the last of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ for the year (I’ll resume the posts in January) so it’s fitting that the final one is holiday related. Enjoy these favorite projects from bloggers around the web!
