I can’t believe we’re already entering our last full week of March next week, but I’m grateful Spring has arrived again. The sun has been warmer and already I’m dreaming of day trips to the beach like last summer. This week, I stumbled across this dreamy image of Ocean Beach in San Fransisco, a place I’d love to linger at some point. Then again, that Californian coastline always has a place close to my heart.
I unpacked the kitchen this last week but find myself daily revising and tweaking everything to make it more a more comfortable and pleasant space for us. It’s still the corner of our home that needs the most attention and we’ll attend to them as we can, financially or otherwise. Although our pantry is relatively large, the storage is disproportionate. I’ve been eyeing little things for this space that are both practical and beautiful. I absolutely adore these wood and glass limpid jars from merchant no. 04–a modern twist on a classic design.
Earlier this week, Joanna Goddard of a Cup of Jo featured Courtney Adamo on her blog. For a while, I’ve followed Courtney and her beautiful family through their London home and travels via Instagram, but I really loved hearing her perspective on beauty in this interview, especially in relating with her daughters (something that’s been on my mind much lately).
Isn’t it beautiful to see the resurgence of handmade goods again? I’m regularly astonished at the variety of beauty made by people’s hands–such a gift to the world. I have never learned to sew or knit or crochet or anything in that vein but am hoping to learn alongside my children soon. I loved this weaving tutorial and am hoping to try this project with the kids at some point this summer–after we finish unpacking of course. I hope you all have a wonderful first weekend of Spring–enjoy some sunshine for us while we continue moving in to our new home. (Wink.)
