A while back, I posted a plea for help in my quest to find Mint Wrapping Paper. Luckily, you guys are awesome and led me to Spoonflower where I was able to easily purchase the color I wanted for a little home project. I realized I never shared how it turned out, so here is my little “moment” side table project in my living room:
Covering your books is a great way control the color palette in the room. Plus you can pretend you’re reading something sophisticated instead of Tori Spelling books.
I had a dinner party on Saturday night and it was my first opportunity to use these napkins my friend Andrea got me last month. They are not only beautiful but PERFECTLY match this large octopus triptych I’ve had for years:
This made the perfect touch to elevate an otherwise casual evening with friends. Plus it’s not wasteful like using paper napkins, so you can stroke your ego for being environmentally friendly at the same time! I loved these so much I tracked down the store on etsy who makes them and ordered more.
They’re called Oh, Little Rabbit and have a great assortment of cloth napkins, grocery bags, dish towels and more.
I LOVE buying from local artists vs. corporations so you will probably see a lot more etsy links on here. Target already has enough of my money.
Come on, you have to love her Blurred Lines pun.
At least we all know which performers married Jewish!
Honestly, my mother-in-law is a living doll and I think it’s awesome that she stays current with music. And her opinions are fucking gold.

I’ve recently changed my blog name to reflect more of what I want this place to be. Most of you (okay ALL of you) know me for my comedy and that won’t change here. But I also have a passion for lifestyle/decor/DIY/ & food stuff. I live to make my home a perfect sanctuary and love creating “experiences” out of everything. It’s the storyteller in me. Every part of my life tells a story and it’s the thing that makes me the happiest. I want to share more of that with you all because maybe some of you will find it inspiring or it will give you ideas to incorporate in your own lives.
So I’m adding some whimsy and keeping the “wry”= rye. I’ll still be funny. I’ll still be inappropriate. I’ll just do it while sharing a little more of my tastes along the way.
Just be thankful I haven’t become a mommyblogger.
