Sneak Peek: Domino Quick Fixes

My husband and I loved this cover. It reminded us of our four-month-old Weimaraner puppy, London!

Like many of you, I mourned the loss of Domino magazine three years ago. And, when I caught wind of the revival I lit up with anticipation. This first special issue, Domino Quick Fixes, did not disappoint. Those hoping for a clone of the original Domino, may be a bit surprised to see that outside of the familiar masthead, the design approach is completely new. Even with the new design, the special edition stays true to what made Domino a beloved asset of inspiration -- great interior photography, attainable elegance and DIY tips. Some of my favorite features are highlighted in this post. If your loved Domino or simply love interior design pick this issue up immediately!

It is here! Domino Special Edition

Words cannot express how excited I am about the newest special edition issue of domino magazine. I scooped up the last copy available at my local bookstore yesterday. The features are great and I can't wait to share more with you.

My Herb Garden: Update

My herb garden has officially been planted! And I must admit, I'm pretty proud of myself. I decided to start with three of the herbs I use the most in everyday cooking -- thyme, sage and basil. I actually purchased the plants a few weeks ago from The Home Depot. They are doing pretty well so far outside on the patio. Any suggestions on additional herbs to try for first-time growers?

Spring Is Sprouting

Azaleas are in full bloom. The magnolias are on the verge. Oak trees are lush with new foliage. I just can't get enough of Spring! My birthday was last Friday, and my AWESOME parents gifted me with a new Canon T2i DSLR camera. I absolutely LOVE it. See more of my Spring pics below!

Project Tutorial: Easter Tree

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I'm a Spring baby, so Easter was always near and dear to my heart as it evoked wonderful birthday memories. For years I've collected little easter knick-knacks, but the one thing I've been missing is an Easter Tree. Inspired by beautiful mercury glass egg ornaments from Pottery Barn, I decided to make one for myself this year. See the full process below!

Egg picks
Egg ornaments
Floral wire
Floral Tape
Curly branches

1. Cut the tops of the branches and attach them to floral wire to make them pliable. Cover with floral tape.

2. Place the foam inside of the basket, and insert your tree form into the foam.

3. Add the grass to cover the foam and base of the tree, along with an assortment of egg picks and eggs.

4. Use floral wire to attach your ornaments.


More Easter decor shots coming this week. How are you celebrating the holiday?
