Because, in my mind, Tuesdays are the day that I really just let it all hang out, I have a little Behind the Scenes update to share with you just how fancy things are around here lately. Read: Not at all fancy. Not at all.
I mean, there’s certainly no shortage of colorful ice cream sandwiches, but there’s also the occasional fur ball tumbleweed that gently floats into said ice cream sandwiches because I haven’t swept the floor in over a week.
That said, here are a few photos that capture a little bit more of the realness that goes on behind the scenes.
That time when Franz photo bombed a DIY series that I put together for Handmade Charlotte (photographed by Heidi Geldhauser). See all 3 DIYs I created for Handmade Charlotte here: one // two // three.

Oh, what? That little hole in the wall that I didn’t finish up before my office makeover shoot. Yeah, that’s no problem. I’ll just tape a piece of artwork over it. See. Problem solved. Don’t worry. I’ve since put the plastic protective plate over this hole. So it’s nice and safe now. Promise.

When you need your couch to face a certain way (in the name of natural light), but the wall behind the couch is in shadow, you go ahead and fake it with a giant backdrop board. See the textile tutorial for this pillow here.
Extra glamour points for the broom handles in this photo (on the far right before photo). See, I have a broom. I just don’t use it much.
And finally…the fur tumbleweed scenario….If you look closely, you can see ’em piling up to the right, by the stairs. Yep, that’s how I roll. I have three animals roaming the halls (and stairways) around here. Enough said. Recipe for these stroopwafel ice cream sandwiches here.
