pin your places

January 19, 2012

 

pin your places

some of you might know, we travel a lot. we’ve moved every year since we’ve been married (that’s 5!) and have made it clear across the country. when i saw this u.s. cork board project over at yellow brick home, i thought it would be such a cute way to log our travels!

pin your places

it also instantly reminded me of this map on my iphone. as we drove home (yup, from california to north carolina) for Christmas, my iphone took note of where i took pictures- represented here by the pins!

pin your places

different pins can mean different things, like where you’ve lived, where you’ve travled and maybe where you would like to travel! and, i think these twig thumb tacks would make it especially adorable. :) visit yellow brick house for the diy instructions!

small town love

January 18, 2012

small town

{small town chapel}

i love living in a small town.

where you wake to the rooster’s crow and the honor stand is just a short walk away.
where everyone remembers your name and neighbors become your friends.
where traffic slows at 6 o’clock and everything closes by 8.
where dogs can be unleashed and your spirit can roam free.
where waiters remember your favorites and the mailman rings your doorbell.
where the market becomes a gathering place and everyone waves from their car.
where walks are routine and strangers say hello.

i love small towns, because the time seems to pass by just a little slower.

a color story- winter browns

January 18, 2012

winter browns

winter browns.

crunching leaves and frosty noses,
brisk mornings and frozen hoses.
lots of fires with warming flames,
hazy skies and indoor games.
slippery footing and falling snow,
and lots of cuddling with my beau.

- by yours truly. :)

these are just a few of the things that winter browns mean to me. what do they mean to you?

wild pulp wild pulp

the perfect mixture of flora and fauna. i just love these little guys from wild pulp! all from a series called ‘north american animals in bark’, owen smith photographs the barks of specific tree species and then looks for the animals spirit reflected in the world of flora that surrounds them. i love that. :) the perfect inspiration for this project? john muir’s quote, “when we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world.”
