21 Jan


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.”

Lovely flowers growing in the parking lot at work.

Friday Faves, May 28

1 :: Add a fun splash of Memorial Day red to your day with this cherry pie chrysanthemum ring from Illy’s Etsy Shop.

2 :: Now that so many spring gardens are bursting with herbs, find a hundred ways to use them up with Martha’s favorite herb recipes.

3 :: This mock two-piece cabana dress from Old Navy is bright and comfy with fun nautical stripes.

4 :: Wondering what to do with that drink caddy from your weekend limeade stop? Make it into a sweet box full of flowers with this fun DIY from Dandee Designs (includes a free printable banner).

5 :: I discovered the Let’s Colour Project earlier this week and it made my day. The breathtaking music video (with the song “Go Do” by Jonsi) is absolutely stunning and every shot is filled with the actual people who painted the cities.

6 :: Travel + Patriotic Red & Blue = The perfect stationary on which to write about your Memorial Day weekend. This airmail letter set from Present&Correct comes complete with vintage labels and handprinted tags.
