messy projects, love lists, and spring!

Happy first day of spring! From now on any wintry weather will be laughed at and referred to as fickle spring weather. That fifteen degrees this morning and the flurries forecasted for tonight? Oh well, that's just spring. In like a lion, out like a lamb they say…. (haha winter, we won!)

I spent a rather embarrassing amount of time this week figuring out how to use mail chimp, designing a logo, and switching my e-mail list over to a newsletter that I have more control of. I really love the look of it, and I get to personalize it a lot more than the generic feedburner style that was there before. If you were subscribed before, you should have received a Welcome Newsletter earlier this week. If you're not signed up, you can do so here. I'll only be sending weekly-ish updates with links to new content on the blog and some other rambling bits you all so sweetly put up with!




I had to share one messy photo of my most recent project. I bit of a teaser I guess, I'll have the whole post up on Monday for you to see. DIY chalk paint and IKEA hack unite. It was a fun one! Especially on the third day of our dining room looking like that when the man ever so politely asked me so, uhm…. how long do you think this project is going to take?


Now…. onto a Friday love list::


I've been trying to decide what the perfect shade of white is to paint the studio for some upcoming big news. The discussion is over on instagram…. I would love any suggestions you have!

Swooning over some artwork on etsy this week. This lovely terrarium print by Gennine and the someday cottage by The Wheatfield (this is what I picture my broken-down-farm looking like that I mentioned yesterday!)

I pretty much adore everything in this jewelry shop : india y la luna. Hello gypsy-hippie-boho mama jewelry!

Heather is running a Whole Food Kitchen class this spring! If you haven't taken a class with her before, you should. She is wonderful, a wealth of information, and creates the kind of e-courses you print up and keep forever in a binder. Her popular bring a friend offer is good through the weekend. Come join us! It's going to be fun!

I keep asking the thrifting fairy to bring me something like this. So far, no luck. But I'm patient… it will happen eventually…..

The best tutorial I've seen on sewing a curved hem.

I want to dye some curtains like these ones when we paint our room this summer. I think I could pull it off…..

This is a must read. I love that Ginny and I were kind of on the same wave length yesterday!

Lastly, a year ago this week.


Tell me what you're loving….

And happy, happy weekending to you~~
