FrenchBaguette - Etsy love of the day

 Always a fan of simple elegance, and beloved patina, this shop has it! And, of course, if it's French it is beautiful! Was so flattered to have a Parisian toyshop contact me today to order some toys- ooh la la!

trying not to worry

On this government shut down kind of day, I am sitting here feeling uneasy- trying not to worry about our future, and trying to think of things to do with the kiddos close to home using what we have.

So here I am, sneaking away to peruse Design Sponge and take a mental vacation. Thank you Grace and the team for inspiring me yet again!

Baking makes me feel calm and nourished- I am going to give this one a try:
Gluten Free Chai Bundt Cake- yes please!

Once I get to cooking the kitchen warms up and the house smells nice, and I get to feeling crafty.
Now to make something pretty for the house! I love having a homemade home- down to the smallest touches- how about a custom honey jar made from a pretty repurposed bottle?
Now all I'm missing is a cup of tea- ah much better!

Lise Blackford's photostream

Sometimes a person will really suprise me, take Lise, for example. A fellow preschool mama, quietly dropping off her darling son, and tiptoeing away to her land of simple beauty and genius. I learned about her photographs through the grapevine, and inspired and in awe.

Take a look, and set off on your own photo safari.

Cheers to the creative genius lurking about!
