    I also bought up a bunch of those beautiful postcards when I saw the exhibit in London. 🙂 The seaweed shapes are my favorite!

    My sister in law had a baby about a month ago and she has had a little of a hard time adjusting since she had a c-section. How do you like the new mom kit from portland apothecary? Is it only worth it for brand new moms or will it be a good gift even when the baby is 3-4 months old?
    Those linens look beautiful, I will have to add them to my want list 🙂
    Thanks and have a great weekend!

    This is always one of my favourite reads of the week! I am constantly drawn into how the simplicity of each shot really does tell a story of how you live your life. And thank you for directing me to the Natural Linens Etsy shop…Aaaamazing.

    We hand-dipped beeswax candles when I was little! (For fun, not because we lived on the prairie, I swear…) If you get a bit more beeswax and use a larger can, say about 8 inches tall, you can keep dipping the candles and create lovely tapers.

    We have the same plant from above your door in our nest. Once I trained ours to grow up, it changed the energy immediately. Think up and positive. Happy Nesting.

    I saw the Matisse exhibition in London last year too. Wasn't the huge seaweed piece stunning?

    Thanks for the birthday candles link! I have leftover beeswax remnants from your own candle tutorial. Great way to use it up.
