DIY :: Tin Can Valentine’s Votive

If you caught yesterday’s 10 Best DIY Valentines, you may already have your February 14th crafting game plan all mapped out… but Valentine’s Day DIYs don’t have to be limited to small tokens of affection for your loved ones. For this project, I used a small, tarnished paint can to make a votive that’s perfect for adorning the… read more


Pulling it Off :: Girl in a Tux

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m really feeling the boy-meets-girl vibe for fall and winter this year. Last month we took a look at the boyfriend sweater, but this month I wanted to dress up the trend with a feminine take on the classic tuxedo. I adore this playful, unexpected style for cocktail parties and… read more


Field Trip :: Round Top Antiques Fair

Our latest Field Trip took us to a longstanding Texas institution — the biannual antiques fair in the small town of Round Top, located just an hour and a half southeast of Austin. Thanks to a few tips from friends who had been before, we were able to navigate the somewhat overwhelming fairgrounds and head… read more


Transformed :: Dressed up Dresser

Refinishing a dresser can be super overwhelming. I’m often asked the questions: What qualities should I look for when furniture hunting? How do I ensure that I prime properly? What paints should I use? Claire here, and today’s project has been a long time coming. Over the last couple months, Chanel has had some major dresser drama… read more


Featured On… Cooking Channel!

Next up in our “Party in Five” collaboration with Cooking Channel is the one summer party concept that we simply can’t get enough of — a retro picnic in the park. This one’s especially romantic, featuring a comforting lunch menu for two, a must-have kite, and of course, blankets and books for kicking back and basking for hours. Catch… read more


An Antiquarian Baby Shower

It’s no secret that we’re longtime fangirls of everything Antiquaria (remember this sneak peak into their entertaining style?), so when we first heard that Emma was expecting a little girl, we immediately began counting down to the big reveal of what would undoubtably be a gorgeous baby shower. Turns out, the day was every bit… read more


Transformed :: Take a Seat

Claire here, and if the warm weather is inspiring you to get outdoors and be creative, this cheery DIY project is for you. It’s a bit more involved than my gold brick bookends from last month, but the end result is one that’ll totally transform an entryway or cozy nook in your house. Two weeks ago… read more


Byrd Collective :: Georgia On My Mind

There is just no place quite like downtown Savannah, GA… the old historic homes with secret gardens in hidden courtyards, the inviting squares full of children playing and students creating, and Forsyth Park, in all its splendor. I (Ashley) had just returned from a wonderfully inspirational trip to Savannah when the lovely Ana of Grown Up… read more


Featured Artist :: Saltlabs

Around this time last year, one of my best friends packed up and moved to Chicago. From the moment she delivered the news of her relocation, I racked my brain tirelessly to think up the perfect going-away gift for her… something that would remind her of home in Texas, but wouldn’t clutter her new life.… read more


The Antiquarian Post

Remember our minor freak-out over Antiquaria back in March? Well, we’ve kept our dials keenly tuned in to the dynamic duo, and since then they haven’t slowed down for a minute. To add to their list of trades (like vintage bridal registries, china pattern coordination, and custom stationery design), the gals have now published two… read more
