1 :: It’s definitely still sweater-weather, even here in Florida. All the fog and mist we’ve been having lately really makes me want to layer on cozy items. The Eight Days a Week Gray Cardigan from Ruche fits in perfectly with the paleness of winter, but adds some sweet floral detail embroidery.
2 :: I feel like I’ve been in “soup” mode for the past few weeks, and I’ve been having fun discovering new recipes. Sunday Suppers brings this recipe for Fennel Potato Soup, which is warm and filling. The ingredients are simple, letting you really focus in on the individual flavors.
3 :: There are so many different methods for making flower pins and boutonnieres! This fabric flower tutorial from How About Orange uses fabric scraps and fabric stiffener for crisp, bright pops of color.
4 :: Valentine’s Day is s-l-o-w-l-y getting closer. I always like an excuse to peruse fun stationery, so for the next few weeks, I’ll be throwing in some fun Valentine’s card designs. This Valentine’s Mixtape card, from Wit and Whistle, is fun and sweet without being too sappy.
5 :: Herman Miller just released their new interactive exhibit, Discovering Design. It’s a really fun way to explore the history and innovation of modern furniture design (and will certainly make you drool over all the wonderfully designed pieces).
6 :: I know I’ve mentioned the talented Matte Stephens before, but he’s got some wonderful new work up for sale right now on Etsy. His building and city illustrations are some of my favorites, but I love this painting, “Irving was an Avid Bird Watcher.”
