Today is the day! The Gal Meets Glam dress collection is finally being released. I’m so excited for it and so excited for the incredibly talented Julia! Um, yes to this potato recipe! Do you follow miniature artist Lorraine Loots? She’s amazing. How mind blowing is this kangaroo? We try to support our local farmers as much as possible, and a CSA is a great way to do that. If you’ve never heard of it or of thinking of trying one, this is a great read. For those of you in the Knoxville area, this CSA
Interesting read. “That’s all.” I feel like I keep seeing this cookbook pop up everywhere. Looks like a good one to add to a cookbook library. Affordable, compact outdoor dining set. The bistro set is nice too. I’ve really loved the chance to work outside in the yard over the past few weeks, but my eczema doesn’t seem to love it quite the same. Interested in trying this from First Aid Beauty. When I haven’t been outside, I’ve been obsessively researching examples of cottage gardens to aspire to and mostly saving them here. Also, if
I’ve mentioned before that I absolutely adore Easter decorations. There’s just something so fun and cheerful about them, and I think a big part of what makes them so appealing is that they are such a representation of spring. Don’t get me wrong, I love decorating for Christmas, but that gap between December and spring can really start to feel grey. When it’s finally time to start pulling out the cheerful hues and florals, I could not be more ready! This year, we were busy most of Easter weekend tiling our bathroom and working in the yard, but we quickly
We made it to Friday, and I’m so excited! While we have a call for freezing temps this weekend, my mood has definitely been uplifted by the transition to spring, and I can’t wait to continue to soak it up this weekend. Spring does mean tax season, though, and I really liked this breakdown on tax basics by the Skimm, which we’re big fans of. Loved this post about this cute little dish shop right here in Knoxville. I pass it all the time but have never stopped in. Adding it to the list of places to visit.
We just got some dahlia bulbs in for summer from Floret Farm, and we are pumped to plant them! Have you all seen that both Mark Sikes and Madcap Cottage are coming out with new fabric collections? A peak of Mark’s collection here and Madcap’s here. Love the use of vertical tiles in this bathroom. It feels so fresh and interesting. This before and after is my current favorite. Jealous of Alice Gao’s recent trip to India. Remember when we took a poll on whether to go with the hexagonal or basketweave tile in our
I know this is not new and that the house has already been given away, but I LOVE rewatching these episodes of Home Love Network: Win This House, especially the dinging room renovation. Anyone else love that clean feeling you have after taking a shower? I can’t help but feel that this shower would make that feeling even better. My spring break was last week and I spent any free time (which was surprisingly little) looking at Marie Flanigan’s interior design work. I couldn’t get over all the detail and her eye to create captivating and timeless spaces.
Spring is finally here, ya’ll!!!! For me there is no bigger anticipation all year than that transition from drab winter to life-filled spring, and while there may be a chance of snow here in Knoxville tomorrow, I can still rest easy knowing that spring is officially here and that cold days will soon be behind us. At the start of each season we like to pull together a list of some of our favorite essentials for that season. Summer was filled with swimsuits and water bottles to encourage hydration, and fall was all about warm, cozy hues and goods.
We love a good Nancy Myers movie set. We recently watched It’s Complicated, and it had us looking up all things Nancy Myers. Did anyone else see this pie of Oprah for Pi Day!? Mind Blown! I have seen some gorgeous home exteriors popping up on Instagram recently. For starters, this, this, and this. One of the best lip sync battle performances ever! If you are looking for the perfect candle for spring, this is our absolute favorite. Smells just like fresh laundry! We have seriously laughed at this video for the last three days.
The Oscars last weekend has us wanting to watch this documentary that won the Oscar for the best documentary. Got this book in the mail and have been too busy to sit down with it yet. I did take a quick peek though, and it’s going to be good! Eyeing this book and plan to preorder. For those of you who regularly follow our Friday links, you know we love her work. We have binged watch the whole season of Queer Eye and Jonathan has us dying laughing every episode. Though I was loving the warm
So let’s talk about our outdoor space for a second. We’ve shared a lot of our interior, but our exterior also takes up a chunk of our time and is a space we’ve been giving more thought and energy to since wrapping up some projects inside. We were very fortunate to find a house with beautiful, well-established landscaping, but since the house had been vacant for over a year, it was also a little out of control. Time mixed with an endless number of beds and some very invasive ivy is not a good recipe! Slowly but surely we’ve been
