12 Patchwork Patterns

Patchwork-Patterns-1

I’m a big fan of the patchwork seen in quilt patterns. I’m always reminded of the quilt my mother would bring out on occasion, a memento from her grandmother. While I don’t have to sew, that doesn’t mean I can’t piece together a beautiful crochet afghan reminiscent of my great-grandmothers quilt. In my hunt for […]

Bring on the Burgundy!

Autumn ushers in rich variations of red, orange, yellow, and purple. Violets, burnt orange, marigold, and burgundy begin popping along the trees, bushes, and decor. I’m a huge fan of color, but fall colors tend to be my favorite. To me they’re like dark chocolate, rich and delightful. While I tend to lean towards the […]

The winter ushers in a sea of white and blue (and brown; all that bare bark and mud-stained snow). Now, I’m a fan of winter. The peacefulness of a fresh coat of snow, the frost creating exquisite mosaics on your windows, the fun activities, the list goes on and on. The only thing that bothers […]

Each season has a different aesthetic. There’s the light and feminine for spring, bohemian and nautical for summer, and of course woodland and rustic for fall. While I can appreciate an aspect from each of these aesthetics, I’m particularly fond of fall. I’ve always been partial to combination of the darker tones of fall, especially […]
