The end to a long day. Being self-employed is wonderful in that you can work whenever you want. At the same time, I tend to feel I never stop working. Recently, I’ve been trying to wind down before bed with a cup of hot tea. It’s really relaxing and is becoming a nice nightly ritual. Chamomile and peppermint tea is my current bedtime favorite.

Pretty weather in Charleston means the perfect opportunity for a picnic. This DIY project (which I did as part of the Charleston City Paper’s DIY series) transforms a bed sheet into a lightweight picnic blanket for less than $10. By varying the length of the dye time, a single dye color produces a gradient from light to dark, which is called ombre.

Lauren, Christine, Gretchen, and I are so excited to have the Charleston Craft Bee featured in this issue of Country Woman magazine. They did a lovely write-up of our Spring Cleaning Craft Bee, including our recipes as well as cute downloadable labels.
Now, we need to get to planning the next bee!

We finally got our mid-century modern couch reupholstered this past month— what a transformation it’s made to the room too (unfortunately, I can’t find a good “before” shot with the old couch). We’ve had this couch for about two years now (it was a curbside find in the neighborhood). Picking a fabric seemed really daunting, so we just left it sitting in the bedroom. We checked out a fabric store in town and found this great green/brown tweed-like material (on discount!); of course, there wasn’t enough yardage left to cover the couch. I googled the fabric name and found it carried at a store in Texas (and it was even cheaper). We’re so happy to have it finished!
