3. this basket repair.

5. this calendar.

{for helping us keep track of the days.}

other things:

rent relief for families.

jasmine and cardamom.

i would much rather stay here and be a bad guest. and, believe me, i am being a bad guest.

dispatches from the gender gap.


happy clouds.

new york is silent.

what do you do with this kind of helpless love during “virus time”…?

prettiest compost.

color and whimsy in case you need it.

if you haven’t already, i’d be so grateful if you shared my skillshare class with someone who might need a little encouragement right now. (sign up at and receive two months of free access to every class on skillshare premium.)

    Hi Erin, hope you and your family are doing well. I really enjoyed the interview with Fran Lebowitz. Such a refreshing and frank voice to hear during uncertain times.

    Those eggshell pots are a great idea! I’ve been thinking of how I can start an indoor garden without the need to order so many pots to start out and I might try using some leftover eggshells!
