How to Blow Out Easter Eggs (and Dye Them Naturally)

I don’t dye hard-boiled eggs (although you can certainly do that, if you like). I prefer using “blown” eggs, so that I don’t need to worry about spoilage and I can use them for a good long time (sometimes a month leading up to Easter) in arrangements throughout the house. Here's how to blow them out. ...more

Plastic Easter Egg Pineapple String Lights

What do you do with all those plastic eggs after the Easter bunny has made his exit? Mine seem to accumulate in my yard, making me crazy. I have painted them with puffy paint, used them as dinosaur egg molds, and filled them cinnamon—and this year, I converted some yellow eggs into pineapples. ...more

Thrift Store Makeover: An Out-of-This-World Console Table

One night, right before closing, I decided to pop in a Goodwill. Dedicated thrifters believe that first thing in the morning and late at night are often the best picking times—and the theory held true on this night. In the back of the store was a long and low mid-century console bench … for a steal. I had long been on a quest for the perfect table to put behind my very low-backed Jonathan Adler sofa, and this piece really fit the bill. There was a table, a bench and a drawer. I knew that, with a little TLC, this table was just what my living room needed. ...more

365 Refections - Reflection 3

When I have time to kill surfing the net, one of my favorite things to do is to listen to a TED Talk. And one of the most memorable for me was the one I heard about the fact that as we have more things to choose from, the act of making a choice becomes harder. I know for me, this is a very accurate statement. Going to the grocery can take far too long if I am buying something out of the norm. For example, let's discuss a simple and common grocery item -  tomato sauce. Would you like meat or no meat?...more

Keeping an Organized and Comfortable home

http://jessicarachelorlo.com... with four kids.... in 1800 sq. ft.... without a garage.... after moving again. I can't handle clutter. It stresses me out to the point that I get bitchy if it doesn't go away. Fortunately, I don't project that on the rest of the family, because I'd rather just handle it myself anyway. ...more
