Home and Heart

September 18 , 2012 by Hong - in Home

Confession: I’m a homebody. It’s been over a year since we’ve moved into our new home and guess what? I’m still in LOVE. In the past year we’ve entertain so many friends and family and have created countless memories. Here’s our space that we love so dearly. A piece of advice: never buy a white, […]

Backyard Chicken Update

July 16 , 2012 by Hong - in Favorites, Home

It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted about our girls. We’ve since named them Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert. (I was out voted) Several weeks ago, we woke up to the sound of crowing and realized that our girls actually included a rooster. Needless to say we had to find a new home as I […]

Vintage Finds

March 07 , 2012 by Hong - in Home, Places

I recently fell in love with vintage finds…or at least recently admitting to it. One of my new favorite places to shop is located in the heart of Seattle’s industrial area known as SODO. Pacific Galleries is an eclectic mix of everything from vintage jewelry to neon signs to french linens. Yes, all in one […]

Chick Love

February 24 , 2012 by Hong - in Favorites, Home

I’m so excited to welcome a few new chicks into our home! The Geek and I have been talking about raising chickens for awhile now and it usually stops short of us getting into an argument. So today I went to the feed store and decided I was going to raise chickens! Here’s how I […]

DIY: Linen Covered Books

February 08 , 2012 by Hong - in DIY, Home, Weddings

Remember in high school when your teachers made you cover the text books with brown grocery bags to “protect” them? Well, this project will yield a more sophisticated version of that. Start with some old hardback books. I snagged some up at the Goodwill for a really great price. Hint: the children’s book cost even […]

Nature Indoors

February 01 , 2012 by Hong - in Home

Remember the snow storm a couple weeks ago? And that tree that mother nature told me to re-purpose as cheeseboards? Well I’ve gone one step further today and thought I’d bring some of it’s branches indoors. One of the things I love(d) about this tree is the moss. Isn’t that texture gorgeous? So what are […]

Act of Creation

January 24 , 2012 by Hong - in Flowers, Home

“Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.” ~Pablo PicassoThis is the aftermath of our snow storm. We underestimated the power of Mother Nature and her snow and ice. We have yet to figure out what the next step will be so if there are any arborists out there that can […]

Cabin Fever

January 20 , 2012 by Hong - in Family, Home

The boys have been out of school for a whole week now. The snow has gotten a little too much attention and we are now ready to resume our normal routine. There is something to be said about social interactions and what happens when we lack it. There is light at the end of the […]

Seattle Urban Living

January 18 , 2012 by Hong - in Favorites, Home, Places

One thing that sold us on our house was it’s location. Our back yard is quintessential of the Pacific Northwest. This week, Mother Nature and Old Man Winter partnered up to give us a little Winter Wonderland. The Geek and I went for a little hike today through this beautiful park. It’s entrance is just […]

Winter Wonderland

January 15 , 2012 by Hong - in Home, Inspiration, Weekend

There’s something to be said of Mother Nature’s way of telling us to slow down and enjoy the peacefulness of snow days.With that being said…I hope it doesn’t last too long, as living in Seattle the snow can be crippling on the city. And honestly, life needs to move on. But for now, the beauty […]
