Little Things :: Family Memory Game

I love getting together at the holidays and seeing my nearest and dearest, but it makes me so sad when I realize that sometimes my kids don’t remember these lovely folks. This year we created a memory game that associates things we like to remember about these family members with photos and magazine cut-outs so […]

Little Things :: Including Them

For me, one of the most precious sounds is hearing my little people hone in on what they’re thankful for — really digging deep into that place where they realize that they have lots to be grateful for, even in their most “dire” of circumstances (like, not getting to have three cookies after dinner, or […]

Little Things :: A Fall Menu for Kids

For me, Fall is all about getting together with friends and family. The summer is spent gallivanting around with no school and no schedule, and you miss a lot of the routine get-togethers and weekly catch ups with the folks you love. So as the air cools off and things kick back into gear, its […]

Little Things :: Printstagram Lunch Box Notes

When I was in school, my dad created an ongoing character who made a special appearance on the napkins in my lunchbox.  I didn’t see this character everyday, but he showed up often enough for me to be wondering when he’d be back again. His name was Superdog and he was precisely how you are […]

Little Things :: Queen for a Day

There are about one million things about Austin that I love, but if I’m totally honest, the blazing hot dog days of summer are not one of them. Y’all, it was 106 last week. That sounds like a made-up temperature, but it’s real. So when I’m feeling a little bluesy about being stuck inside (or […]

Little Things :: Summer Berry Picking

Today I’m thrilled to introduce a brand new monthly series here on the blog: Little Things will be brimming with inspiration for fun get-togethers to do with the littles in your life — and if you don’t have any, you just might get inspired to let loose and act like a kid yourself for a day. […]

Food and Flowers :: Luxe Bohemian Girls’ Night

Though neutrals seem to be all the rage these days, it’s no secret that I’ve always had a deep love for bold patterns and rich textures, decadent sweets and unruly cocktails. Ashley here, and I suppose you could say my style sensibility is luxe-yet-bohemian. This particular photo shoot was inspired by the deep red color […]

Floral Trimmings :: Organic Holiday Bouquet

It’s not unusual that my home is decked out with as many fresh flowers as possible, but when the holidays roll around it’s a whole different ball game. For this week’s floral trimmings project, Ash is back with a gorgeous holiday-inspired arrangement that boasts her signature wild and organic style, chock full of seasonal blooms […]

Floral Trimmings :: Bay Laurel Garland

I’ve been looking forward to the holidays for a while now so I could take my mantle back. All year long there sits a giant television, so this is my time to have fun with the space. I’ve been wanting to place this wonderful portrait from Scott’s Antiques  on the mantle, and surround it with some […]

The Byrd Collective :: Saint Cecilia Wedding

Last month, Adam & I checked into the Hotel St. Cecilia here in Austin for a little stay-cation to celebrate his birthday. Every detail was perfection in that so-hip-without-trying kind of way…so when our floral contributor Ash sent me the latest wedding that she worked on there, I knew it would be full of cool, […]
