Hey, internet! I miss you. I mean, I’m pretty content getting newborn snuggles and baby smiles over here, but I do miss work (and Pinterest) too.
Calvin and I are sort of getting the hang of this whole breastfeeding thing now, which means more efficient nursing for him and less pain for me. He’s also settling into a routine, and I’m able to get more done. I haven’t been on the computer much, so I haven’t had many interesting links from around the web to share, but I did want to at least pop in with some of the posts that I’ve written elsewhere lately.
You know we’re cooking on an antique stove (it has its pros and cons), but my heart flips for retro mid-century styles. Would you bring a vintage stove into your kitchen?
Decorating around a lot of wood trim, or in a room with custom built-ins like our library? I picked four paint colors to complement unpainted wood beautifully.
Of course, if you’re looking to paint some wood trim (*ahem* I have some experience with that), I’ve got you covered with some tips and tricks.
It definitely feels like fall outside in Chicago and around much of the rest of the country, but has your home reflected the changing on the season? Here are some excellent ways to welcome fall into your home.

I’ve been cooking on a 1952 restored Chambers, similar to the one pictured, for almost ten years and I would not cook on anything else. I absolutely love my stove! I am a very experienced cook and have cooked most anything you can imagine on my Chambers. It is different from most vintage stoves because the level of insulation in the oven makes it much more accurate than most gas ovens and it roasts and bakes beautifully.
