The Art of A Collection

By Erica Fehrman

Each time I came down the stairs from my childhood bedroom, the first thing I saw was a wall full of horse blanket pins.  Dozens of antique blanket pins tacked on the wall, their shadows creating double patterns throughout the day.  My mom would drag me through antique stores with a sharp eye for ...

15 Floor Plans of TV Houses

By Carina

By Neptune's beard! I ran across this post with floor plans of TV houses and I, kid you not, squealed like the TV and architecture nerd that I totally am. Most of your editors at TodaysMama are complete TV and movie geeks, by the way. Something about seeing these sets turned into actual flo... Read More

Laundry Room Organization

By Rachael Herrscher

I think the organizational style that some might use to describe my household is that of a "piler". We've got piles of everything. My laundry room organization (and thus the entire basement as an extension of the laundry room) was no different. In thinking how to solve our piling problem I litera... Read More

Laundry Room Ideas

By Rachael Herrscher

(p.s. getting rid of moths is a "how-to" post for another day), and yes, their nest was in a box of cheerios (imagine the Dragon's nest in How to Train Your Dragon). But I digres... Read More

A Neon Twist for Your Table

By Erin Oltmanns

A few weeks ago I found myself in the enviable situation of wandering around Target, just my Mom and I. It was one of those trips when you take advantage of the fact that the kiddos are at home tearing up the backyard with Dad and look at everything.  I knew that neon was BACK, but until my big ...
