In Our Home

My sweets, this morning I thought I’d share a few of the sights, tastes and smells that have been filling our home of late.

Press play and enjoy!

There are few things more pleasing to my eye than a bookcase stuffed to bursting. Especially if said books have been organized by color rather than any logical content. Ah.

A serendipitous little rainbow came to say hello to my sad, dying flowers.

After sorting through all of our worldly posessions, I realized we had rather a lot of useful fabric – old duvets, scarves, ya know. Without so much as blinking, I chopped it all up to hand sew this funny door topper. What do we think? If anyone would like my makeshift pattern I’d be happy to share.

A few weekends ago we spent a day working on the farm and were rewarded with bags of produce and this delicious salad mix.

My favorite of these verdant treasures was the miner’s lettuce. Rich in Vitamin C, fleshy like spinach but softer on the tongue, and with the most pleasing of shapes (the other leaves look like ginkgo), this little plant was used by miners to prevent scurvy.

pot pie

Though it’s really more of a Fall/Winter dish, I couldn’t resist making my vegetarian pot pie at least once more.


Stormy skies and sunshine out of our window.


The real queen of the castle demands constant worship. And usually gets it.

Have a lovely day my dears!
