Holiday Pajamas

How cute is this cowboy pattern? I think we may have found Hank’s Christmas jammies. These are part of a pajama roundup I just did for Target, go have a look.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for there, there are more pjs in the roundup we just posted on Mighty Goods too.

Moms Gone Wild

I’ve been making videos with a bunch of other moms. We roll around in hot oil, and then talk about Thanksgiving:

We also talk about ways to punish our partners when they disagree with us:

All right, I kid. It’s us in twin-sets, knitting and drinking tea.

Heather, Alice, and I did do a few segments with our tops off, but they edited them out. Stupids.

(I posted this yesterday, but accidentally deleted it, so a few comments are missing. I’m sorry if yours was one of them, because I think you’re nice.)

Tea Light Shelf How To

Remember that Apartment Therapy House Call I did a while ago? I forgot to tell you something kind of cool about the photo above.

The little votive shelves in the hallway are handmade. I went to a hardware store and bought some flat metal plates (I think they were mini circuit boards? Not sure.), and some metal L-brackets with holes for screws. I glued them together with epoxy, let them dry overnight, and screwed them into the wall.

Because we live in earthquake country, I affixed the Ikea votives to my mini-shelves with double-sided foam poster tape. All together though, each shelf, including the votive, only cost me about 90 cents.

We took them down recently, because hard metal edges and low flame aren’t particularly toddler friendly, but I loved them while we had them. They were gorgeous all lit up.
