Best New Pool Floats for Summer 2018 by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

It may be spring but things are already heating up here in Texas and we couldn’t wait to get a head start on summer. Since 2015, it’s been an annual tradition of ours to share our favorite water flotation devices and we have to say, some of these posts have been quite popular!

With the pool float trend increasing each year, new players are emerging and are creating floats that we’ve only dreamed of (let’s just say we’re big fans of rosé,

DIY Rug Hook Pillow

DIY Rug Hook Pillow by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

Every so often, a DIY technique will come along that completely rocks my little crafting world and this DIY rug hook pillow is my new obsession!  Can you relate? I’ve recently started rug hooking and can’t help but eat, sleep and breathe it! #sendhelp

What I (Erin) love about rug hooking is how fast and forgiving it is. If you’ve ever attempted knitting or crocheting, then you’ll appreciate what I’m talking about here. Rug hooking is relatively simple and fast to do.

Perfectly Simple Pastel Easter Table Setting

Perfectly Simple Pastel Easter Table Setting

Sometimes I have a vision for a table setting or DIY that just does NOT come together like I imagined. I had originally pictured this setting to be photographed outside, but then wind and rain were not our friends.

On top of that the original table I ordered hadn’t come in in time, so I snagged this guy last minute instead. So on and so forth, you get the idea! Hence why we’re just now sharing this table inspiration…ughm …

Little Sugar & Cloth: Gwen’s One Month Update!

Little Sugar & Cloth: Gwen's One Month Update! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

I realize that she’s now just over two months old by the time I’m getting around to writing this post, but that basically sums up almost everything about how smoothly the first month went, haha. So here I am, finally digging my way out of the newborn haze a bit enough to share Gwen’s one month update!

Let me just say that the first four weeks were simultaneously the longest and shortest four weeks ever. In a lot of ways it felt like one giant 24 hours that never ended on account of that fact that she slept when she felt like,

Products Wishlist: 18 Creative Workspace Must-haves

I know I’m not alone when I say that the best part of ‘Back to School’ was shopping for new school supplies. New binders, new pens, folders in every color! Of course, labeling folders and filling binders with fresh paper was a lot more fun than taking notes and studying, but c’est la vie.

As an adult, this joyous time of buying things for the workspace doesn’t have to be an annual occurrence – and it shouldn’t be!

Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail

In celebration of the arrival of baby Sugar & Cloth, I (Ashley Conway) made this Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail to celebrate Ashley, Jared, and little Sugar & Cloth!

Baby Gwen was born just a few weeks ago into a fun, colorful family and this rainbow sprinkle topped drink is to celebrate Gwen and Momma who can actually drink this drink now! What’s not to love about boozy, liquid dessert?

This birthday cake cocktail is definitely an indulgent one,

DIY Faux Stoneware Salt Cellars

These days, I’m of the mindset that pretty much everything looks better in a speckled stoneware finish, and these DIY faux stoneware salt cellars make no exception.

I, Erin, have been jones-ing for a stoneware cellar in my kitchen for a while now. They’re all-around chic (as far as kitchenware goes!) and handy for decanting specialty spices so that they’re right at your fingertips while cooking. However, I just couldn’t swing the cost of hand-thrown pottery right now,
