Keep it Flowin’

I love a good list…

Fire Drill

What would you take with you if your house were burning? I’m really enthralled with this idea, and the site called The Burning House. I’m finding it particularly poignant since I’m packing up all of our belongings in preparation for our move in a few weeks. As I pack I ask myself, what would I really want to save if I only had a few minutes?

I’m realizing that I haven’t really had many “wants” lately. And I’m thinking it’s because moving has acted as seriously effective cure for my normal list of wants. The thought of having to pack anything is a major deterrent to my even looking at stuff.  However, I’m finding myself drawn to these perfectly organic wood, and wood like, objects as of late. Maybe it’s because I wish I was hiking in the woods, or that I love wood and wood grain anything, or that maybe I wish that I lived in the woods and all my belongings fit neatly in a knapsack…

Now this is the stuff that makes me excited to move, thoughts of redecorating a new space!  I’m so inspired by these photos of the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House.

Weekend Scenes

The weekend was saturated with food and family, it literally flew by.  The clouds were kind enough to stay away and we had the most beautiful spring Saturday, filled with walks, open windows and most of the day light hours spent out-of-doors.  I did devote some time to making two quiches for Easter brunch, using a basic recipe from Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything”, adding my own flavor preferences, sharp cheddar/cayenne and carmelized sweet onion/thyme/sharp cheddar. They turned out super yummy and we even had a few pieces left over for lunch today, to remind us of the weekend, mmmm.

Hope your week is perfectly delicious!

The Creative Wagon

I apologize for the lack of posts but I had a run-in with unmotivated, uninspired me over the weekend. I’m blaming it on allergies and low vitamin D. However, the sun was out today, the sky a glorious blue, and it was a perfect pick me up for a Tuesday, or any day really.  Kim and I have planned an “art day” for this Thursday, plus we’ve been discussing a lot of ideas, to get us back on the creative wagon – making skirts for spring and summer, re-fashioning and sprucing up a few jackets from winter for spring, watercolor painting and just general inspiration and incentive  has been on our minds. I try not to force it but sometimes you need a little push to get the creative gears moving again. I am finding comfort in the feeling that it’s turning into spring, a time for renewal and refreshment after a long winter’s nap.

On that note,  here are two fun projects that I spotted and added to my must try DIY project list – I can’t wait to try them this spring!

These Poloroid magnets and this typographic paper marquee lamp.  

Cheers and hope the rest of the week ahead is a wonderfully creative one!
