lune’s diy notebook jacket

October 14, 2010

diy notebook jacket

it’s just that time of year.  summer playing and time at the beach are long gone and it’s time to start thinking about this winter’s hibernation (unless you’re on the other side of the globe, happy spring to you!). what better way to start the season then with a cup of cider and a new handmade notebook to start jotting down your winterisms in? jill from lune wrote this great tutorial on how to turn an old notebook and a thrifted tea towel into one of these snuggly journals.  off to thrift i go (as if i needed an excuse..)!

what is one of your favorite ways to welcome cool weather?

every eskimo

October 12, 2010

every eskimo

i liken looking around every eskimo to stumbling across the most unique and perfect little antique shop, in some quaint little town right beside a river.  as i browse,  there’s one of just about everything that i’ve been on the scout out for, a typewriter, dress from and a pair of antlers to hang on the wall.  with a beautiful setup and a surprise around ever corner, the shop inspires me to give my home that rich-story-telling depth.
