steam punk industrial midcentury modern via seejaneblogFriends!!! For those of you who might be new to SeeJaneBlog – our family resided in Utah for fifteen years from 1996-2011, then we moved to Boston, Massachusetts for two years in 2011-2013. Then returned to Utah in July of 1013… Nineteen months ago. After nonstop projects during this time, and more projects currently underway I am ready to start a tour around our home! I plan on sharing our home in sections – starting with the entry and living room.

First of all, this home is fairly unique and came to be ours in a unique way too. Our last Utah home is only ten houses away down the road from where we now live.


valentines day in our home

February 15, 2015

minimalist valentines day home decor via seejaneblogAs each holiday approaches I find myself craving more and more simple traditions. Less decorations, less focus on what we should buy for people and an increased focus on the time we have with those we love. In the past few years I’ve had numerous conversations with friends about this – tell me what you think…

minimalist valentines home decor via seejaneblogIn my twenties, after getting married and starting a family, I had this inner urge to consume STUFF. Whether it was furnishings for my home, decorations for holidays, kids toys and gadgets… I collected and purchased stuff like Gus from Cinderella collected cheese. I couldn’t wrap my arms around the items I was bringing home. I was prone to overspend with anything I could easily convince myself I needed.


today i have a beautiful new blog that i want to share with you,
and i hope you will become acquainted with… everything bloom!

irish or not, i like to spread a little green + rainbow cheer this time of year. i prefer years when march is the focus of st patrick’s day and april is easter. this year i feel crunched for time with the two happening only two weeks apart. regardless, both holidays mean spring and that is constantly on my mind…

sunshine, rainbows, and warmer weather one of these days!

DIY yarn-wrapped canvas

February 12, 2013

creating change. since i took down my christmas decorations i’ve been craving change. something new. specifically: a new large piece of art. so, this is what i did:

i picked up a 36″ x 48″ white canvas with my 40% off coupon from JoAnns. i chose some new thick wool yarn in an almost-ombre selection of colors + red, and started wrapping my canvas! the red was chosen in honor of valentines day.
