just when you think you should slow down your wine intake on account of the new year, you discover it’ll help spruce up your home. so you continue as you were.

I believe in the beauty of wine bottles. and in recycling, or better re-purposing them. as candle holders. or possibly a vase.

I was searching for a way to divide the eating portion of our peninsula from our sink, and think I found the prettiest barrier.

and of course, we keep the corks. and any significant dates like [J]’s golden birthday we make sure to document before adding to our collection.

time to go restock the wine rack!

happy wednesday.

decorating above the kitchen cabinets.

[J] & I have made so much progress in our apartment. I am absolutely in love. I walk through the door and immediately “ahhhhh” in happiness. it feels like home.

we are so excited to be welcoming our first out-of-town guests this afternoon: [J]’s family. they’re coming from chicago, to spend the day with us. and to see our new place. so naturally, we spent the weekend working on the projects left on our ‘to do list’. including ..

we have a lot of empty space between our ceiling & cabinets – it needed to be decorated. but it’s an area I’ve never tackled before. I took to {pinterest} for ideas. where I stumbled upon my final {inspiration}.

we did all of this in one day. from two stores [TJ maxx & hobby lobby]. and all for under $100.

there is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the pieces we picked. we just liked them. [especially the fish]. and they provided the ‘pop of color’ we wanted.


it may seem to be an ‘insignificant’ space to take time & money to decorate, but it has made a huge difference. and we are so happy with the finished product.

happy monday all.

[and let’s all hope for spring to come to the midwest. it’s been snowing for two days. and I’m over it. I’d happily settle on 40°].
