It's been a crazy year... Happy 2013

It is hard to believe another year is coming to a close.
Oliver and Rust has bloomed wonderfully this year (namely in transferring from MT-Tails into Oliver and Rust) and as such has had some successful posts that you all enjoyed.

Here's a roundup of the posts you loved in 2013

our office got a little reorganizing and vintage styling to become a more functional work space

we are certainly feeling the need for an outdoor siesta right now with the crazy 
winter weather

almost a year later and i wouldn't change a thing about this runner. we are now considering using the same company for the stairs to the basement.


and a few runner ups

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around.
Look forward to lots more furniture transformations, house renos, crazy antics and vintage love here for 2014

Have a wonderful day,


common ground 


  1. I loved it all and can't wait to see what you do for 2014. Hugs, Marty

  2. I have seen many beautiful houses on line, and I may have falling in love with many of them, but then I saw your home, and I even dream of it,(REALLY, i HAD A DREAM OF THIS LOVELY ROOM...) Your "underground" area, is the most awesome room , your decor is like no other, You just have a magic touch, and know how to make a house a home... cozy, and comfortable , unique.... I love every one of your designs, in every part of your home..Just saying "wow"

  5. Meg, I too enjoy your blog and all of your wonderful decorating ideas. I'm looking forward to following you into 2014 and see what you come up with! Also, I thought I'd let you know that I subscribe to your blog via email and those emails still come over as MT Tails... didn't know if you knew that and maybe you'd want to try and get that changed to Oliver and Rust as well.

  9. Meg,
    Your top posts are truly inspiring. My favorite is the re-do of your office space. I pinned that beautiful chandelier when I first read this post. I've been following for quite a while, but need to add your blog to my blogroll.
