friday things

happy friday friends. i’ve got some new collage bowls coming. i’ve really enjoyed making these so much. it’s been a real lesson in efficiency and patience. creating patterns, mixing them, the utter frustration when things don’t work and then doing the happy dance (literally) when they do. the top 2 photos are of the mini’s (6 x 8) and the bottom two are the mid size (11 x 15). the mini’s will be listed in my shop today under bowls. they really are just so fun and i love them so much.

and in other news:

i’m getting the new XR phone. and i need a new case. want this one from bauble bar. can’t decide between the mint with white and gold or the red with pink and silver or the yellow on yellow. my phone is yellow but i don’t think you’d see that with a case on. thoughts?

mike anderson says i use too many paper towels. i would agree but i NEEEED them. cat puke. cat poop. wine dribbles on the counter etc. found 12 (TWELVE?!) sustainable alternatives. have you used any of these with success in the paper towel replacement quest? (we are currently sans washer and dryer so this is all giving me massive anxiety, assuming you have to wash 12/12 of the alternatives.)

are you konmari’ing errthang? read this now. but ok read this first.

barrettes are going to be huge this spring. (maybe scarves too!) i’m here for all of it. i’ve been stalking these for a while.

i love this wallpaper. a lot.

“when you don’t know what to say a casserole says plenty”.

an easy make-ahead and practically readymade kid lunch.

i’m here for the combat boot trend but they need to be a little less in your face (dr. martens) and a little more subtle. these are speaking to me. or maybe the slightly more distressed version, which could say- “oh, these old things? i’ve had them forever.”

where the hell do i find fresh elderberries? help i want to make this magic elixir very badly.

dear god not floating vanities.

i made this salsa last night and it really did taste like restaurant style salsa. side note- i did not use the cans of rotel. i just used 1 28oz. can of whole plum tomatoes. it really does make a fuck-ton of salsa. even without the added rotel.

this ombre citrus tart is so pretty and honestly beyond easy. i’ve pinned this to my party food board bc i just think it is so special to look at with VERY little cooking ability acquired.
