Another Ode to Anthropologie

I recently noticed the Expanding Universe Tank on Anthropologie’s website and thought it was a really interesting treatment of the striped fabric. I happened to have a striped knit here with me in Alabama, and thought I would give it a go. Here is Anthro’s Tank Top (the picture is a link to the site.)…

Our Master Bathroom

So this Spring (I know, jump around much?) I did some work on our master bathroom, I tiled a backsplash behind our sinks, and I wanted to add some color to our tub without having to redo the whole thing. I found some white tiles that were the exact same size as the existing white…
