A week's worth of Inspiration, Eating, Listening,

Watching, Reading, Working & Making


hey there, friend!

There is so much to absorb this week.  Everything seems to be coming from all sides, all at once.  It's completely overwhelming, and it's too hard for me to find the words.

Simply put, I'm not handling anything well. 


But, I can do what this email does best, and share some links:

NAACP Legal Defense Fund

Movement 4 Black Lives

The Okra Project

World Central Kitchen

Latino Community Foundation Norcal Wildfire Relief Fund

National Smokejumpers Association

Iowa Derecho Relief

DonorsChoose Teacher & Classroom Support

First Nations Emergency Response Fund

 Americares COVID-19 Relief

COVID-19 Charity Navigator

United States Census 2020

Betterhelp Counseling


After having more than one close family member or friend have very serious health scares in the past 3 weeks, I am begging you to take care of yourselves.  Don't ignore those little twinges, don't think getting it checked out isn't safe right now.  Ask for help if you need it.


You are important, you matter, and you've only got one life.  


Here are some seemingly frivolous things that have brought me small moments of relief this week. I hope do they same for you, wherever, and however, you may be.




Had a conversation with someone the other day about how tired I am of grey - I am craving color!  But I know that I personally need it tempered with a bit of a neutral backdrop, so I really love the way this Sussex cottage by Beata Heuman is done.  Especially this bedroom.

The whole place is Cozy, Eclectic & Colorful - all my faves.  






Thank you so much for following along, {{ subscriber.firstName | default('friend') }}!

And hey, if you're looking for some thoughtful design help for your overwhelming project, I'm here for you!  Because you're totally allowed to ask for help.


Take care of yourself, okay?
