Years and years ago, we (Stephanie and Nicole) collaborated on a lifestyle blog, before we realized that lifestyle blogs were even lifestyle blogs. We called it "Cinco Style" and it was an assortment of photos, recipes, projects, and favorites. This was pre-Pinterest, pre-Instagram, if you can even remember that far back! In time, our professional … Continue reading Welcome!
Mushrooms. Daisies. Swirls. Mod. Pops of color. What decade do these make you think of? Our city's art museum hosts an annual fundraiser that helps restore pieces of art in its permanent collection.
