Every Thing Will Be Okay.

24 Apr

Sometimes when I’m feeling particularly get-me-out-of here all I want to do is run away. Let's Run Away Screen Print Art

Better yet.

Let's Run Away

But since it’s not always the most practical thing to run away—responsibilities, people I love, pets I love, and then the whole I-don’t-want-to-lose-my job-thing—instead, I say nice things to myself.

Like.

It's OK Banner

But let’s be honest. Somethings aren’t OK and you might want to take that sweet little banner and say, Do not be positive with me right now. This is a bad deal. It’s not OK. 

In that instance, I’d say go with this:

Everything Will Be Okay Screen Print

Because eventually everything will be okay.

Get something fun for your walls here:

Gatherings: Best of the Web

17 Apr

Pretty things abound. Here are some things I’ve seen this week that I think you’ll enjoy.

I am the pickiest when it comes to coffee mugs. I prefer tall slender mugs to big bowlish mugs—the coffee gets cold quickly, too much surface space. And I like the way a skinny mug feels in my hands. This one meets my criteria.

This mind-over-matter plant container makes me smile.

If I had to live in a barn I’d choose this Michigan barn.

Speaking of barns… West Elm has the sweetest Love Thy Farmer tote bag. And, I do love my farmers.

I’m into kale. I want to Jodi’s  recipe for crisp kale and brussels sprout tacos with avocado and white bean creama. Everything is good when it’s in a tortilla, right?

If you’ve got a bare wall in your closet and a few clipboards here’s a fun idea for your chunkier necklaces.

No matter how smiley the dustpan, I will likely never feel happy about sweeping.

Finally, my favorite wallpaper in removable tilesFor those of us who like to change with the weather.
