My name is Mary, and I live just outside Washington, DC with my boyfriend of about a bazillion years. His name is Peter. We bought our first house in August, and we are slowly but surely fixing it up and making it pretty. Our decorating budget is a bit on the teeny tiny side, so I will have to be creative, shop sales and vintage, and do some diys. We've already made some progress, though, which you can see here.
This blog is about many things, but mostly about art, design, diys, inspiration, handmade, crafts, vintage, photography, and my life. I have a shop where I sell felt jewelry, illustrated journals, and vintage earrings, but I'm planning to add new items soon!
I can't imagine a life without books, and I visit my local library every week. (My mom's first question to me when we talk is almost always "What are you reading?") I love classic movies and Masterpiece on PBS, but lest you think my taste too refined, I've also seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer more times than I can count, and I force Peter to watch Toddlers and Tiaras (I know, it's horrible) whenever it comes on.
I never met a vegetable I didn't like, but I only eat fruit in dessert form. That is all.
