Monday Moment: Yarn-pocalypse

Big fuzzy yarn-fluffy thanks to Honolulu Homie Lauren for uploading this color orgy of a moment into our Flickr pool. Or as she referred to it… "Yarn-pocalypse: Boring corner overhaul." The moment I saw it pop up like rainbow magic in our Flickr pool, I just had to know more… paintings, dinosaurs, what's hanging up over the kitchen pass through!? Amazing. And Lauren was more than happy to tell us all about her moment.

What do you do with YOUR fruit stickers?

Given the ubiquity of fruit stickers (…at least here in the US; is this a regional thing?), we've had a longstanding tradition in my house of collecting our stickers on the top of our water filter pitcher.

This begs the question: my husband and I can't be the only people who can't stand to just throw away a sticker. What about you, Homies?

Color blocked, Mondrian-style, Skittles-paletted mid-century home decor

I am losing my shit over this impeccably restored period home in Denver, Colorado. Not only is the home a mid-century modern dream, but it's been decorated — inside AND out — in color-blocked, Mondrian-style, using a Skittles palette colors of bright reds, yellows, greens, and oranges.

If you'd like to be schooled on color-block decor, come drool all the fuck over this 1952 ranch home.

Matching spice jars: pretty & awesome or stupidest idea evar?

Can we talk about matching spice jars?

Half of me says "You should totally do that! It's chic, pretty, and awesome." The other half says "THAT IS THE STUPIDEST IDEA AND MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. WHY WOULD YOU MAKE MORE WORK FOR YOURSELF BEYOND THE JARS THEY COME IN?!" My brain literally yells that at me.

What does everyone else think? Does anyone in the real world have all their spices in matching jars?
