Love this look. It's perfect for this in between time. When it's nice out one day and then raining the next two.

I can't wait to get out in the dirt and plant our summer garden. Soon...

Good as New

Leather sofas can last forever. Well nearly. Inevitably, though the cushions get to be unbearable long before it's necessary to replace the whole thing. Which is just why recovering just the cushions in fabric is such a great idea!

Art Appreciation

Love this combination of materials; a vintage doily displayed on a weathered wooden embroidery hoop. Ready to hang. Here.

Lately, finding time to spare has been impossible. This school semester is especially time consuming and stressful. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to a leisurely summer.

Travel Bug

Do you read Selvedge? It's a textiles magazine from the UK that is amazingly beautiful. This is a photo of their shop in London. Someday I'd love to step inside for a visit.

I keep all of my books on a shelf in my closet (and in piles next to my bed) that shelf tends to get a bit messy. I decided to cleaned it up this week. Now the orderliness of it is making me crazy. It feels all wrong. Some things are just better left alone.


This was the view from my kitchen window this morning. . .

Love. The only thing I'd be left to long for would be a view from a kitchen window.

Art Appreciation

Deborah Forman's work is so beautifully layered. This piece makes me think of looking through a window on a rainy day. See more of her work here.
