Michelle and team have been busy getting ready for Saturday’s Remodelista Holiday Market in SF (with a Gardenista section and workshop). Take a look at their perfect-for-right-now DIY ideas, exotic drinks included.
- Tour Chicago’s New Leaf in this week’s Shopper’s Diary, a flower shop set up for browsing. Make a beeline for the basement to find vases, ribbons, and candles in every color.
- The elixir that Martha and George Washington swore by, the vinegar-based shrub is making a comeback. In An Old-Fashioned Drink for Modern Times, learn about a new book of shrub recipes, plus how mix a shrub-improved Old-Fashioned.
- Why buy what you can make? In A Star Is Born, Justine fills us in on how to fashion the perfect tree topper. And stay tuned for more of her God’s-eye ornaments next week on Remodelista.
