Jess’s Picks

Mary’s Picks

  • For some reason, I’ve been a bit obsessed with party planning. Do I have a party coming up to plan? Nope. Just really like the idea, I guess. I love these cross-stitch cookies featured on Design Sponge this week. How cute would these be to make for any party? The designs would be endless and I love incorporating modern ideas for embroidery into anything.
  • Have you heard of the Wedding Snap App? This seems really cool and a great way to collect phone photos from all of your guests. I wish they wouldn’t have named it Wedding Snap though. Because it would still be great to use at any party, 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!
