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

Watching, Reading, Working & Making

hey there, friend!

This week has made me realize that while I am ready for life to get started again, I am also not ready at all. Because, yes, please bring on the new projects, the family gatherings, the excursions and the errands - but please also let me temper it with rest, and quiet, and alone time. 


I don't know about you, but in the before times, I needed like a 70/30 ratio of being around people to total rest and recover.  Now?  It's like 40/60.  Give me fun BUT ALSO GIVE ME SOFA.


So for the next few days, If you need me I'll be wrapped in a light blanket and enjoying a glass of iced tea and a new book in total and complete quiet before the next round of interaction.


Some small moments of  joy:

A very fancy squirrel

Season 2 of Ted Lasso looks like perfection

Happy Birthday Luther Vandross

Such a smart way to wrap gifts

A lily for a skirt

A really, really good Target Collab

I'm obsessed with Big John

A concrete tablecloth

Go ahead, release it.

A vintage wallpaper find

Hoagie as sculpture

Here are the other things that got me through this week.

I hope they do the same for you, wherever and however you may be.


Pin of the Week

Beach-y, weathered finishes on the mind this week, with a design for a nice little mid-century exterior. I started with square channel siding ran vertically, painted a soft with and complimented with a sandy colored brick.  Weathered wood accents add warmth and are balanced by modern metal finishes.  Then a bright pop of coral on the door and in some accent pillows on the patio furniture tie it all together.  Relaxed, classic, and fun.
