Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Macrame 10 Ways


One of the biggest home decor and craft trends lately has definitely been macrame. From wall hangings to plant holders and many other home accessories, the art of knotting string has greatly surpassed yarn crafts like knitting and crochet. It certainly has a more boho-chic and modern look to it. Personally, it doesn't quite fit in with our traditional and very Pottery Barn-ish decor. But I think it's the perfect addition if you have a lot of boho, eclectic decor in your home. Macrame would also blend in well with casual coastal decor. Pictured: Large Macrame Wall Hanging


The most popular, and one of the easiest to make yourself (depending on the size and design), is a macrame wall hanging.


This hanging macrame chair is definitely not a DIY, but if you have the space and love boho decor, it's a very unique and beautiful piece to have.


Macrame bunting, just like any other kind of bunting or decorative banner, can be hung over a fireplace, and entryway vignette, or above a small headboard. This macrame bunting would be lovely in a neutral nursery.


This macrame hanging storage is perfect for a small space, like a bathroom or entryway. With little hooks attached, it's just the thing for organizing jewelry and accessories or for hanging keys and other smaller items by the door.


Large macrame panels can serve as either curtains or a decorative room divider. To add more privacy, simply layer white fabric panels underneath.


This look could go either inside or outside. Cluster a few macrame plant hangers for a very boho-chic vibe.


To bring a little boho-chic into your dining area, try this beautiful macrame table runner. It makes for a lovely centerpiece, though you could also use it as a decorative table runner on a sideboard, mantle, or entryway table.


Accessories like the macrame plant holders pictured above don't have to just be used as plant hangers. You can fill them with decorative bowls to use as hanging storage, or fill them with tealight holders for some outdoor hanging candles.


Another great use for the large macrame panels is a photo or ceremony backdrop. It's perfect for a boho-chic wedding!


I'm not sure how easy these macrame decorative bowls would be to make. They involve knotting and connecting rings. Though they're certainly worth buying ready-made. They would look great clustered on a counter top, table, or an oversized coffee table. Fill them with fruit, decorative spheres, or leave them as-is. I think they're pretty enough all on their own, don't you?
