Monday's Pretty Things

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: Greens in Florals and Foliage

Well, it’s not Monday; but these are still pretty things, so let’s just roll with it. :)

Justina Blakeney kitchen tour on the Kitchn

First of all, I have to talk about blogger Justina Blakeney‘s kitchen.  Isn’t it real?  I can not get over how welcoming it is! I feel like Justina would make a really good best friend, because it seems like the kind of kitchen a best friend would have. Seriously, you need to go see the whole tour here.

While I’m on a green kick…

Mel Kendrick Walnut Wood Sculpture

It’s a walnut sculpture by Mel Kendrick, but reminds of scrap wood you’d find in a great-grandpa’s workshop. I like that.

Daughters by Floral Magic - Florist Shop In Singapore

And this floral shop in Singapore . . . wow. What an amazing space, run by a mother-daughter team. It’s really worth clicking through to see more.

This is so pretty. A self-portrait by Alexis Mire. I love the floral robe.

Lavender via Geraldine Cooks

And finally, lavender, from a favorite Turkish blog, Geraldine Cooks.

These soft greens are a bit of a departure from the usual stark Scandinavian interiors I find so inspiring — yet perfect for tonight.

Calming and peaceful.

Sweet dreams! xo


Baby owl hats now available on Green by USA as well as Etsy!

You might have seen me post on Facebook or Twitter recently about Green by USA, a new website which offers green, American-made products from a variety of vendors. Well, when Tina — an old family friend, miltary wife, and babywearing, cloth-diapering mama of 3 — asked me if I wanted to sell a line of natural-fiber hats on the site, of course I said yes! (This new line is in addition to my Etsy shop).

So check out Green by USA, and be sure to leave them some love on Facebook.
