Up to his Old Tricks

That Matthew Mead is at it again. With simple, fresh, budget friendly ideas and such appealing photography & styling, it is a true feast for the eyes.


His new ideas for summer are fantastic and his recipes sound de-lish!

His projects are lovely and easy to pull off. I always wonder why I didn't think of them first.

I find him so inspirational and I think you will too. If you haven't signed up for his newsletter you are missing out. Also, don't forget to check out the archives.

  5. Oh my gosh - how did I not know about this guy? Maybe it has something to do with the 3 kids under 5? I see some "mommy time" in my near future. Thanks for the post.

  6. Cool! I didn't know he had a magazine. I know him from a segment he did on HGTV's Country Style (which, sadly, is no more). I especially love the platter house numbers. Darling! ~A :-)
