About Me

otk-boots-5Hello, and welcome to my humble blog! I hope you’ll enjoy perusing the many DIY projects, often-spicy recipes (I am from Texas, after all), inventive cocktails and style-related posts I stay up late to create. Please feel free to write me a note if you have any questions, post ideas, friendly hellos or you simply need someone to tell you which pair of shoes to wear with that new dress. I get that a lot.

I currently live in Iowa City, IA, with my friendly papillon pup and soup-obsessed boyfriend (for whom we are braving the prairie for the next few years in the name of higher education). Having spent the past decade in cramped but lovely city quarters from Boston to San Francisco, I’m making the most of things here in the Midwest and thoroughly enjoying the crafting space afforded to me by my modest—but very spacious by city standards—little homestead among the cornfields.
