The Projectory wares

Philadelphia friends! I’ll be setting up shop at Greensgrow Farm’s holiday bazaar tomorrow from 10am to 4pm. Come shop locally for the holidays, pick up a tree at the garden center, and say hello to Milkshake, Kensington’s resident pig and 2013 mayoral candidate. I will have an array of my box zips: Flat zips: And […]

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve heard the news, but here it is, officially officially! I’ll be launching an online shop at the end of the month featuring a collection of modern bags and home goods handmade from vintage and recycled materials. These are just some sneak peeks, I’ll be doing a […]

Leaving well enough alone. That, my friends, is for the birds, and people who enjoy a sense of completeness in their lives. Not me, in other words. The living room is the one room in our apartment that I’m not decorating right now. I’m not decorating it so much that I haven’t taken a single […]

Hemlock Tee

So I have a clothing problem. Or, more accurately, I had one clothing problem, and now I have a different one. At the end of the summer, I finally took a long, hard look at my overflowing closet and realized that I wasn’t wearing most of what I owned. I just didn’t like a lot […]

The very last of the unpacking. It’s happened! You know what happens when two book lovers combine households? Too many cats. And yes, too many books. But really, is there such a thing? (cats, yes, books, never.) After all the boxes were unpacked, even the chaotic studio was tamed. But the piles of books remained. […]

A terrarium made from a light fixture

I love thrift stores. I love the hunt and the sense possibility and the deals. I love having objects that carry their own history, that have been in lives before they’ve come into mine. I have a circuit of three near my house that I like to stop in on a weekly basis and  a […]

Harvey knit vest

One of my very favorite things I’ve ever knit is now out in the world! Kelbourne Woolens recently introduced another amazing yarn, Knightsbridge, a blend of baby llama, merino wool, and silk, and as part of the accompanying collection, I would like to introduce you to Harvey: Harvey is a vest that combines traditional gansey […]

In progress, August 2014

Summer is flying by, and between the productive exhaustion of settling into a new job and the unseasonably mild weather, the inside of the house hasn’t gotten nearly as much attention as my picnic blanket and my bike. I’ve also been spending significant time on the balcony, reading and napping.  Adding the church pew has […]

The design decisions that have been made in the hallway by previous owners are confusing at best. The brick wall was plastered over (it’s exposed in some of our neighbors’ units), then painted, then papered, then painted again, then papered in a raised polka dot patterned paper, then painted a fleshy beige. The overall effect […]

After a wholly pleasant and unusually extended Spring, Philly’s heat and humidity has made an appearance in full force. While we’ve put an air conditioning unit in the bedroom for sleeping at night, we’ve resisted turning it on before 10 or putting another one in another part of the house. Frugality and a curious-but-unsubstantiated belief […]
