Jess’s Picks

No picks from Mary who is taking the week off. Mine are full of yummy food and bright colors though so hopefully it will keep you sated until Mary returns next week.

  • Monday morning, Real Simple emailed me this recipe for Eggplant Parmesan Rollatini. I was in the mood for something along these lines anyway, so we made it for dinner on Monday. It was delicious! And not really that much work. It would be great to take along to a potluck.
  • I love the shade of yellow in this feeling like a citron sorbet… roundup at Oh Joy!. I pull of yellow pretty well — so well that all mom bought me for years was yellow and I rebelled against it until I finally reached adulthood and would admit that she was right.

Hope Chest

In our hope chest, we share products that complement our home aesthetic or make us excited about the directions of new design.



I live with Kyle, my husband, in Kansas City, Mo. We have a dog, Oats, and a cat, Logan.

I am a development professional who specializes in museums and the performing arts. I write grants, fundraise, and assist with marketing in the form of donor communications. My academic background is in history and museum science, focusing on the presentation and interpretation of Africa in American museums.

As a freelancer, I work with clients in need of websites, Wordpress upgrades, and FileMaker Pro database solutions.


Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
