1. Have an Indoor Picnic.  The weather in Georgia is going to be seriously terrible this weekend.  Rather than going out, whip up a simple supper of a sliced baguette, fancy cheeses, charcuterie and cornichons (check out this link for inspiration – or just grab takeout), spread a blanket on the living room floor and listen to the rain.

2. DIY Braided Cord Cover. Exposed cords really bother us. We work hard to conceal them (we’ve been known to tape them to the bottoms of tables, weave them through tiny nails hammered into the wall, etc), but sometimes we have no choice but to let them show. Fabric Paper Glue to the rescue! In the time it takes you to watch a cheesy TV movie, you can create this adorable braided cover.

And if cords REALLY make you nuts, try these washi tape cord covers perfect for phone chargers.

3. Style Your Shelves. This is a perfect rainy day project! Think like a stylist: scour your house for interesting objects (random vases, figurines, tiny photos); group similarly-colored books together; and give the eye somewhere to rest every now and then. This is a great article with more how-to advice.

4. Visit a Flower Market. IT’S PEONY SEASON! We both love peonies; their explosive beauty is perfection in arrangements short and tall, simple and complex. If weather permits, visit your local flower market, scoop some peonies (or whatever flowers you love), and create an arrangement yourself. We love these ideas from Apartment Therapy.

5. Bake Something. Sundays are for baking at our houses. Try these peanut-butter pretzel brownies from on the ADORABLE blog A Beautiful Mess. Chevron pretzel pattern optional.
