thoughts for a friday

Hi friends! I was going to send this on Monday morning, and here we are on  Friday… Anyway, I have regular office hours these days, and it is fabulous! Lots of ideas percolating, designing, a little bit of painting… And sometimes, sharing with you on ye olde blog. 

Artist, Suzanne Jongmans, is turning packaging material into beautiful Renaissance costumes. I love this kind of stuff. 

Reading this article. Sobering and so, so sad. But, we all need to do something about the way we treat the earth. NOW. 

I’m not sure how to follow that, but I have been trying to make small changes in my own life. I’ve switched to bamboo toothbrushes, a soap bar for face wash and shampoo and conditioner. Small things, but I feel like we all need to start somewhere and go from there. Also, we need to vote for the green movement.  

I’m excited for Christmas but in the non-consumeristic/mindful variety. Buying gifts, just to give something seems so tiresome these days. I am all about gift-giving, but want to do so with intention and thoughtfulness. This article, even though written several years ago, seems very timely.  I know there are a million gift guides out there this time of year, but maybe I’ll pull together some ideas I have. What do you think? 

Hope you have a lovely weekend, friends!

just some things.

a piece by Phoebe Cummings

This essay by Audre Lorde. So. much. to. think. about. Thank you to Sarah at Saipua, for the recommendation. Loving her blog and whole direction she is taking her company these days.

This tiny house (and inhabitant) fascinated me. 

Also, this video about the artist Phoebe Cummings. I love her work.

And is it cool if I just post links to beautiful british houses for the rest of my blog/life? Cool. 

Hope you have a great Friday. And please remember to Vote on Tuesday! And vote Blue!!


these things are a delight.

This kitchen is making me so happy to know that it exists in the world. I love the charm of british interiors, and this whole house is quite good. 

Have you seen the amazing work of Ron Nicole? Her flower fossils are breathtaking and the world she creates/shares on her Instagram is just so beautiful. Someday I’ll buy one of her pieces. 

I made this soup last night and didn’t even add the beer and it was amazing. Have i mentioned I really enjoy cooking? I do. Very convenient as I do a lot of it these days with two young children and a sick husband. :) Make this bread to go with it. Thank me later. 

So glad that we live in a world where Call the Midwife has another new season on Netflix.

A great, thought provoking article from a much needed voice. 

That’s it for now lovelies! Have a great rest of the week. 

xo, Sarah
