My favorite Etsy stores are the ones where real people are hand-making and curating beautiful things, vintage is still vintage, and things are priced like an antique shop, not a boutique. If that’s your jam, too, here are some Etsy stores you’ll enjoy.
I’m getting more questions lately about how to start to blog. I thought it might be useful to throw together a list of the blogging tools I use and love.
There’s little I can say about this year that hasn’t been said around the globe; in our little corner of the world there’s been profound loss, but also so very much to be grateful for. Our sincere wishes for a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season and new year.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’re all going to have a little more home time this summer, so if you’re looking for a good read to read to fill the space, here are some books I’ve gathered over the years I hope you’ll love as much as I do.
There are so many great books to read right now I’m honestly having a tough time choosing. Here are my spring fiction and nonfiction choices.
I recently spent the day finding things to do in St. Augustine and ended up on Matanzas Bay exploring Castillo de San Marcos. I studied the design-related aspects as well as the color and texture created by the aging of construction materials and furnishings.
No matter where life and love take me, I’m always grounded by crossing the Mississippi Delta toward the foothills of the Ozarks I call home. With the relentless passing of time, these trips home seem more consequential. People and land are changing; there’s much to be done in preparation for passing all of these things and memories to the next generation to value.
Windows open, a good coffee pour, biplanes buzzing in the background, good friends on the way to spend the weekend with us – this morning, there is much to be thankful for; I’m reticent about “missing” anything. Still, I do miss having four seasons, and this is the time of year when my mind wanders to (and my friends’ feeds remind me of) the almost-sudden, spectacular Seattle spring tailor-made for walks and rhododendrons.
We’ve had the pleasure of living in the Pacific Northwest three times – on beautiful Fidalgo Island, in Portland, and most recently, in Seattle on the north shore of Lake Washington. Anacortes and Whidbey Island remain some of our favorite places.
It’s that time again – I always struggle with the end of school teacher gifts. I want them to really reflect my heart for the people who keep my kids safe and happy each day. Nothing really fit the bill last year, so I designed the teacher appreciation gifts myself. They were a huge hit so this year, I’m sharing them with you. I hope you love them as much as I do.
I love this budget-friendly cleaner and use it for everything inside and outside my house.I even use it to clean my car.
