Top 10 Places to Shop for Fabric Online

We are finally getting to the stage of building where I’m thinking less about the guts of the house and more about the pretty things. Hardware on cabinets, rugs, curtains, and fabrics are where my mind wanders to these days. For the past few weeks I’ve been spending most of my "stuck on the couch breastfeeding” time scrolling through fabrics … [Read more...]



Crafts of Christmas Past

Well, December is here and Christmas prep is in full swing...sorta. As usual I’m a little behind, but this year I am totally okay with that. I have my tree up (but not decorated) and I may go crazy on the mantel...I’ve never had a fireplace or a mantel before this year and it’s begging for the full Christmas treatment. So while I don’t foresee … [Read more...]



Round Top Antiques Fair

The weekend before last Adam and I went to Round Top for their giant antiques fair, which is one of the biggest and best in the country.   Last year I went for the first time and was blown away by how insanely huge and amazing it is. It is miles and miles and MILES of fields and pastures, barns and tents bursting with unique old … [Read more...]



Things I’m Lusting After

Before we jump into this post, I just have to say thank you for all the comments on my latest post about the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". First of all, y'all are hilarious, and second of all, you proved me right beyond the shadow of a doubt. It's funny because Adam loves to read (as an adult and a kid), reads to the boys all the time, AND … [Read more...]



The Top Ten Posts of 2015

.Happy New Year everyone! 2016, isn't that crazy? It's like we're living in the future or something. When someone talks about an event that happened in the 90's I'm like "okay, so like 10 years ago." But no...I'm about a decade off. I swear it feels like yesterday that I was rocking my slap brackets, blue eyeliner, and knockoff JNCO jeans (thanks … [Read more...]

Hey everyone, hope y'all had a great Fourth! So today I'm sharing some of the pictures Adam and I used as inspiration while designing our new home. But first, a public service announcement...

10 ways to decorate above your bed

Lately I've been spending time mindlessly scrolling through pinterest and Houzz (what else can you really do when breastfeeding at 3am?), gathering ideas for something to hang above the bed in our master bedroom. There are lots of great options out there, so I thought I'd put together a post showcasing a few of them.   1. Art This … [Read more...]



Ten home improvement projects I would do again

Well, I didn't really expect to be sitting around my house writing posts this week, but alas, here I am...41 weeks pregnant. According to the doctor there are no signs that I will go into labor in the next week, so he scheduled me for an induction on Wednesday if nothing happens before then. I'm praying it doesn't come to that though, because … [Read more...]



The Top Ten Projects of 2014

Happy 2015...I hope everyone had a great holiday break and is ready for the new year! Ours was great, though we did have to skip some events and stay home because of sickness.

9 Painting Tips & Tricks – what you need to know before starting your next project

  1.Skip the tape Painters tape is great for a lot of things, but when it comes to painting a room painters tape is basically the worst. It takes forever to tape a room and you have to use a lot of it. If you have textured walls and ceilings (like I do), then forget about it...paint is going to leak under it anyway. If you have a … [Read more...]

2011 In Review – The Top 10 Projects

February of this year I started Domestic Imperfection on a whim. I had been reading lots of craft blogs and thought "I do all this stuff, I should start a blog." And start a blog I did. I had no idea what I was doing, which was okay because I didn't really figure people would read it. And they didn't. In the month of May I got a whopping four … [Read more...]
