have a beautiful weekend


what are you up to this weekend? anything fun? i've been writing, staying outside as much as possible, taking in spring, the quiet, the birds and hanging out with my bunny friend. now that my leg fiasco is behind me, i'm hoping to start running again this summer, it's a goal! i also am finding that i'm living in dresses lately and mildly obsessed with my current dress purchases. this, this and this one are on my radar this weekend.

i hope that you are having a beautiful weekend! and some fun finds from around the world wide web...

vintage love.

want to change up my bedding for spring. these poppy dot sheets might do the trick.

this confetti duvet cover is super fun too. 

her flowery couch, and everything else in this interior. 

been very into wearing the color red this days. giving my a boost and confidence. this may be my next purchase. 

their sinks and faucets are just gorgeous. how about this tuscan farmhouse marble sink? yes please!

really want a set of these linen sheets in the color terra.

have a beautiful weekend!


spring is here, can you feel it? after the crazy year that was 2020, i feel that we are all opening up, like cracking out of an egg shell and that everything is looking fresh and new again. so if we gain that perspective after all is said and done, i guess that's pretty neat. 

my leg is healed (last xray this month), i'm back to my beach and my ocean. taking longer and longer walks and so happy that i'm beginning this new year healthy. i hope that you are having a beautiful weekend. 

what are you up to? anything fun? you'll find me in the yard checking on my plantings from last year and hoping they made it through this cold winter. writing. sipping wine and reading my recent book purchase (see below). 

and some fun finds from around the world wide web:

what are you reading these days? i just ordered this, based on her recommendation.

the sweetest wallpaper. just ordered  this pattern for my dining room. bold & beautiful!

kind of in love with this 3d printed vase.

these vases. i want one of each.

happy new year! how are you?


we are experiencing a rough start to our brand new year. no doubt about it. but tryyyyyyyy to think of it this way...it's only the beginning of many clean slate days ahead, many days to do good, to be good, to be healthy and push the reset button as many times as you want or need. there's room for all of that. so that's what i'm feeling and just going to stick to it!

i hope you are doing ok and feeling the hope, cause it's there! and some fab finds from around the world wide web:

a wow couch, to say the least. wow, this one too.

hi how are you? have a happy weekend!


i haven't posted in a while. there has been working remotely, and then working back in person, there has been a writing project that i'm getting nibbles on, there have been 3 hour walks on the beach, there has been research, there has been reading and a new boating commute, there's been painting purchases and painting with my fingers, there have been long nights looking at the stars, there have been dinners outdoors.

in between all of that, and like most of you, i'm fighting off a week of the blah's, paying attention to what it takes to make me feel less anxious, or happy or content. and then eating it or doing it or committing to it. how are you doing? i hope you are all hanging in there and finding spaces and places that make you happy.
