DIY & Home Decor on TikTok
Some of the most beautiful before and afters.
DIY & Home Decor on TikTok Can’t believe I’m moving out in 2 weeks 😣 Making the best of it and reminiscing on these befores and afters. Which rooms is your favorite?
Are you team deep, saturated color or team light and bright when it comes to bathrooms?
WOW, what a gorgeous shot from . Our Glasshouse wallpaper is looking seriously stunning in their bathroom makeover!
Almost done decorating the 12 foot Christmas tree. Luckily, most of these vintage ornaments are not breakable!
For all the fragile ones, I just order a set of 48 hooks. Fingers crossed that these work well. My fingers were tired of twisting floral wire. 😂
They also donate 10% of their proceeds to no-kill animal shelters. All of our sweet pups have been rescues, so I love this! ❤️
Always satisfying to polish brass.

So much natural light and such a beautiful setting!
See Inside Jazz Great Dave Brubeck's Groovy Connecticut Home In the early 1960s, Brubeck moved from California to a modernist masterpiece in the woods of Connecticut.
For real. Cauliflower believes in itself.
The view from where I sit. Scroll to see why.
I fractured my foot BEFORE vacation but didn’t realize it. Foot falling asleep + trying to walk on said foot (in clogs) + falling hard to the ground = fractured foot. First time to ever break anything.
I thought it was a bad sprain, so I wore a compression brace and took it easy. Fast forward to back home, school started, back in the swing of things...and pain. Had some X-rays and voila!
Funny story, this leopard is part of another piece. I found two intact platters, and got the figurine for half price once I pointed out the issue. Also, if you are like me, you might want to know the difference between a leopard and a jaguar (last pic). You can thank me later.
Worth sharing, worth reading. May we all be so confident in ourselves no matter our age.
So let’s have a conversation about style and risk-taking, and what it means to be the sartorially-conservative, chubby daughter of a narrow, tall woman who once wore a fringed brown suede poncho as a skirt because her neck and her waist were the same size. .
Susan texted me from the commuter train the other day with a picture of the woman sitting across the aisle from her. “A HAT” said Susan, along with “Where the hell is when you need her.” But Susan was in awe. And I was in awe. Susan said the woman was not a day under eighty. I sent the picture to , a former correspondent friend who said “yeah but her fabulous SHOES.” (Details, those reporters.) I shared the picture with a stunning design/food writer friend who could wear a burlap sack and still be gorgeous. “I want to be HER in my dotage,” my friend said.
And really, so do I.
Such certainty in style.
Such self-assurance. .
So, Motherland. A reporter asked me the other day what I had learned after spending three years writing this memoir about my life with my mother, about aging in parallel, about her NPD that has impacted and informed every part of my life.
I said this: my mother’s sense of style is so profound, so daring and all-defining, that I realized she took her talent for stage performance and simply translated it to the sartorial. And that had I paid attention to this rather than be infuriated by its reflection of her relentless need for the spotlight, I would have learned more from her.
I wrote Motherland as an inquiry into us.
There is still time.
There is always time.
And this is why I decided to write the book while we are both here on this earth:
to know her, and myself, together.
Meanwhile: the woman in the hat, on the train. .
A pair of Picassos...that is a pair of Picasso print ceramic wall hanging tiles. Perhaps vintage. Made in Spain. Still doing my research to find out more info and date them.
Finally found a piece of Blenko glass in the wild. Love the color!

Whenever I get home with a new find, I sit down, photograph it with my iPhone, and then start researching. Lately, I post things on Facebook groups devoted to art glass or Italian glass or studio pottery, etc. I research whether or not I plan to sell the item. I love to learn more about the things that I like to collect. If I do sell it, I love to tell the back story and explain why vintage items are unique. My past includes working for a large catalog company, importing mass produced home furnishings and decorative accessories. Funny, that my joy now comes from finding items that are not available in abundance. This green glass apothecary jar is still a mystery. 💚 I welcome your thoughts!
Playing around with my coffee table this morning. My most recent find was the The Bombay Company Chinese checker set. (2001). I figure we can play as a family. 🙂
Everything, including the huge 43x43” coffee table was thrifted, etc. Vintage Maitland-Smith tessellated box for remotes, vintage Freeman McFarlin California pottery on a Target black tray. Brass & glass terrarium with gold sculpture.
The last day of school was yesterday. Excited about the absence of routines, homework, etc. Not excited about the sibling squabbling that has already begun this morning! Sigh.
Made a huge batch of chimichurri dry rub to give as teacher gifts, with extra for us. Perfect for summertime grilling. 5 oz. IKEA glass spice jars are the perfect size and look so good.

How is it only Tuesday?? It feels like this has been the longest week!
Instead of the long list of things I need to do, I will look at all the pretty inventory cluttering my house. 🌈
I am going to try and list a couple of things a week on Etsy. 2-3 is my goal! Baby steps.
New library books for Sunday reading. I am a obsessed with greens, so thrilled to find this book! We eat out once a week and cook the rest, so I am always trying new recipes.
Organizing the black hole, a.k.a the game room, and you have one clean surface so you document it! 🙌🏻
I also notice that we are missing a drawer and I don’t know where it went. 😂
Why We React Badly When That New Sofa Arrives
What a relief to know it isn’t just me.
Why We React Badly When That New Sofa Arrives For the first three weeks after her new furniture is delivered, our design columnist tends to absolutely hate it. Here, she analyzes this fairly common syndrome.
Baby, it’s cold outside (at least for this Texan). Too cold to go out or . Maybe if it warms up later. I think I will work on the huge amounts of inventory I have in my home! Stay warm friends!
