This is my story of the missing socks. Sure enough, after a load of laundry there’s always at least one random sock without it’s partner. every. single. time. I’m convinced the drain eats them up or they mysterious get in between the walls. I put the solo socks back in my dresser drawer assuring myself that once I find the matching sock I’ll remember to pair them. Enter a sock drawer of individual unpaired socks. The solution:…

Each day when I get home from work I stand outside our front door trying at least three keys before I find the one that opens my front door.

I recently got tired of our guest bedroom decor and decided to spruce it up in more of a ‘mid century modern’ style. I was looking for pillows to add a touch of color and texture, but couldn’t find anything reasonably priced. (Since when have pillows gotten so expensive?!?!) Realizing that I already have many pillows from past room designs, my most economical option was to create my own pillow covers. The fabric that I bought was…

So technically this Fast Fix Friday takes longer than 5 minutes …. depending on how long you sleep tonight. I’m no beauty expert and this definitely isn’t a beauty column, but I do have a nack for time saving tips which extends in to the beauty department. With the cold weather, my hands always seem to get extra dry. Standard lotion just doesn’t do the trick. But I found a solution. If you’re willing to…
