We have an easy Easter sewing project for your sweet bunnies this year: bunny ears headbands made with soft pastel linen. Perfect in a basket surrounded by eggs and chocolate. And just in time for those Easter photos.
Here’s how to make them…
Like many of you, I grew up dyeing easter eggs with vinegar and food coloring. The colors are so bright and vibrant! Right now though, I’m loving the look of more natural dyed eggs. Today we tried dyeing eggs with all kinds of teas! Here’s how it went, and a color guide just for you…

Toast is high on our list of favorite foods. Recently we heard of a new kind of toast and immediately had to try it out: sweet potato toast. Made just like bread in the toaster, the thin slices of sweet potato are topped with everything under the sun. Plus, this toast is gluten free, sweet + nutty, and really good for you! Here’s how we made ours…
According to French Vogue, blush pink is the ‘it’ color this spring and we can’t get enough of it. Here’s an easy tip to incorporate it into your outfits this season…
Happy weekend! We have some exciting news: we’re officially in contract to buy the home we’ve been renting here in Montclair, in the Oakland Hills for the last year! It’s been a crazy last few months trying to figure it all out after finding out the owners were wanting to sell. I put all my decorating and organizing on hold (so you can image the clutter that piled up around here), and we jumped head first into house hunting every weekend, making offers, weighing our options, and in the end we decided to purchase the home we’ve been in. And we’re feeling really excited about it! My head is swimming with projects and plans including a new studio space here. You’ll probably hear lots more about them in the weeks and months to come. With all the house hunting going we haven’t been up to Tahoe much at all the last few weeks, so thinking of heading up there this weekend. Have a great one, here are some links to explore:

Have you heard of golden milk? All my health-conscious friends are obsessed with it right now. It’s delicious (like a spiced chai latte!) and because it’s made with turmeric, it’s packed with a crazy amount of health benefits for your liver, heart, brain, immune system, etc. Stephanie’s been incorporating it into her night-time ritual and raving about it. So much so that we decided to try making it ourselves. Turns out it’s super simple, here’s how…
My friend Audrey just did something amazing in her home here in Berkeley: she painted a beautiful mural on the wall of her little girls’ room without any formal painting experience beyond high school art classes. I was totally floored by the result (and her bravery!). Here’s what she had to say about the process, how she accidentally became a textile designer after starting out as a DIY blogger, and how being a mother to four girls has changed her…

Spring is our favorite time to visit Tilden Park’s Little Farm. It’s full of baby pigs, chirping chicks, and blossoms on the trees. Nestled in the Berkeley Hills it feels like a world away, but only 30 minutes from San Francisco. Here’s how our outing went last week in partnership with Old Navy’s gorgeous spring line of florals and vintage inspired basics. Keep reading for more photos from our outing and a few tips if you’re planning a family visit there…
