all available at this time in my shop. i've also updated my checkout policy. you no longer will be directed offsite via paypal to purchase. you will have the option to use paypal or your credit card at checkout and everything will take place right there, no offsite business. OPTIONS! i love options. 


i am signing off until monday so i can focus on eating everything i can

like this

and dear god this.

also, this is a genius idea. 


if you find you miss me you can follow me on instagram for nothing particularly awesome. but probably a pic of pie in my mouth. 


this is the best table for the day. you understand.

i get uniquely excited about table settings.

this year we are hosting a friendsgiving the first week of december. 

this is where my head is at-

my favorite white dinner plates from west elm...they have an irregular shape that i love.

they are enormous too. perfect for piling up all that food you fatty. 



 this pale gray border stitch cotton tablecloth would be pretty. white seems too formal and i tend to like the plates to contrast with the table. i typically don't love tablecloths preferring the wood of a perfectly aged farmhouse table instead. which, if i had i would totally go with a tea towel or placemat underneath instead of a tablecloth. 


these washed linen napkins in plum will play nicely with this amethyst transferware platter


 do yourself a favor and buy all the cb2 marta tumblers you can because they are perfect for everything;  wine, sangria


i likes to serve the desserts on the frou frou frilly lady parts plates...the ones your grandmother loved the best generally do the trick. the more mismatched the better. i think vintage is best, but anthropologie does a nice job with quirky dessert plates


i have been snatching up pretty mismatched silverware at junk shops for about a year now for this very occasion. anthropologie also sells them


this year, instead of candles, i am going to try a long strand of battery operated holiday string lights down the center of the table. fewer sleeves on fire but all the sparkle. 

so reckless. pray for me. 


brass bird pitcher for holiday sangria

did i mention i was making holiday sangria?


and finally, every table needs a tiny wooden pinch bowl full of maldon smoked sea salt

so much more ree-fined than shakers. 

the end. 



art inspiration: imbi davidson

today's artist is relatively new to me, as in only discovered a few weeks ago. 

but her work is so beautiful i had to tuck her away in my inspiration folder (not creepy).

her name is imbi davidson.  

"Imbi Davidson is a visual artist currently living on the east coast of Australia. She is a painter, drawer, mark-maker & intuitive explorer of surfaces on any form of material. Her work penetrates the landscape of the soul, giving resonance to its form, pattern and history. Imbi recently completed her Masters (Vis.Arts) researching the visual representation of native plants in Australia."

for me her work is luscious and moody and makes me feel like i want to crawl up in it. 

specifically her series titled The Lost City



so cool.
