    Mounds of Rounds

    Based on the familiar children’s toy, Mounds of Rounds unstacks into a low table and floor cushions. Unfortunately, this piece from the Cumulus Project seems to be only a concept for now.

    Weekend Test Kitchen: Berry, Apple, and Rosemary Shortbread Bars

    After several very warm days in Austin (including a 91 degree afternoon yesterday), it feels like winter again this morning. That’s all the excuse I need to try out this shortbread bar recipe featuring my favorite winter herb, rosemary. You can find the complete recipe – including from-scratch berry jam – at desserts for breakfast.

    Spring Stripes

     I love the way black and white stripes can add vibrance to a white room. They are perfect for personalizing a plain white apartment when repainting isn’t an option. (Image via Pinterest)

    They can make a small amount of color really pop. (Image via Pinterest)

    Or mellow a bold patterns. (Image via Back Yard Bill)

    DIY Cat Tree

    This cat tree is made out of an old set of drawers screwed into 2″x2″s. What a great way to repurpose a piece of furniture that has gotten too old or too damaged to serve it’s original purpose.

    Update-able Office

    Turning clipboards into mood boards is a great way to organize projects in your office that would work equally well for your craft room. Plus, the mood boards make for fantastic, update-able art.
