DIY Party Wall Hanging

DIY wall hanging // stories by sarah sherman samuelThis wall hanging was a fun last minute addition to our NYE PARTY and I might just keep  it up year ‘round! Read more for the full DIY…


weekend scenes: palm springs drive-bys

palm springs architectureWhile project a-frame has gotten off to a slow start (so far the carpet has been pulled out and that’s about it), we have been making more frequent trips to Palm Springs to get the show on the road! Luckily it’s one pretty road, and we often spend Archer’s nap-time driving round and around it, ogling all of the houses. Rupert drives, and we poke and point at different mid-century gems, I take photos out the window, and Archer snores. It’s a pretty great way to kill an hour and a half when you don’t have a bed to nap in. ;)

Here’s a couple more from our last trip… here and here. I can’t get enough!

travel stories: mexico

quatro-quatros-mexico3quatro-quatros-mexico2mexicoquatro-quatros-mexico8I give glamping in Mexico a 10 out of 10. Well, maybe a 9.5… the .5 being taken off from a run-in with some angry bees, but aside from that the trip was pretty magical.


Home Bowl Party

modern-homebowl-08-smSpeaking of parties… Evite, Coca-Cola® and NABISCO recently invited me to participate in a Home Bowl party contest, (vote for me to win the Top Party Pro contest here) and since I can never turn down an excuse for a party and Rupert is always looking for an excuse to get me to watch more football, I rustled up some friends and family and made a day of it.

New Years Dinner

New-years-eve-dinner3-640Happy New Year! I blinked my eyes and 2015 was over!

I decided to wait until the final holiday (Bachelor Premier Monday, of course) to get back to work, so here we are…. happy Tuesday. :) To celebrate the new year we had a few friends over for an intimate dinner in the still completely naked studio. I brought in our old dining table from storage, rented a few white chairs, put on my sparkle pants, and threw together some decor from things I had around the house (aside from the sequin table cloth and noise makers which I ordered the day before thanks to good old Amazon Prime. I really never have to leave the house… ever).

New-years-eve-dinner5-640New-years-eve-dinner8-640Honestly, I wasn’t planning on sharing the party because zero planning went into it, but as timing would have it with Archer’s schedule, I had to set the table early in the day as I invited our guests to come over just as I was putting him to bed and his bedtime routine starts around 6ish, sooo it was still light out, and the studio was so bright, the ridiculous gold on gold on gold was glistening and my DIY wall hanging turned out even better than what I had in my head. It would have been a crime not to take a few snaps and now I get to share just how simple it can be to set a New Years Eve worthy table.
