My favorite Etsy stores are the ones where real people are hand-making and curating beautiful things, vintage is still vintage, and things are priced like an antique shop, not a boutique. If that’s your jam, too, here are some Etsy stores you’ll enjoy.
I recently spent the day finding things to do in St. Augustine and ended up on Matanzas Bay exploring Castillo de San Marcos. I studied the design-related aspects as well as the color and texture created by the aging of construction materials and furnishings.
When I travel, fabric shops are always on my itinerary (near the top with antique stores, thrift shops, and flea markets). Here are my favorite online and brick and mortar stores.
If you have a small room you’d like to appear visually larger, there are a few tricks to achieving that effect. Doing just one can make a dramatic difference in the “feel” of the room and make it seem larger in size overall.
Windows open, a good coffee pour, biplanes buzzing in the background, good friends on the way to spend the weekend with us – this morning, there is much to be thankful for; I’m reticent about “missing” anything.

So excited to share my DIY matte finish plaster paint recipe as well as the beautiful dining room cabinet I refinished using it. This paint is so inexpensive and easy to use, and color choices are limited only by your imagination.
