I love you Wally Woolypocket! Our new place is surrounded by green trees, a lush park and trails galore, but we don't have any private outdoor space where I can grow plants of my own- just yet, anyway.  I'm thinking Wally might be my only option for an herb garden this year, but I'm also considering this.

More work, better weather, cross-country travel and life in general have come before the my time writing for this blog as of late, but I'm still here- are you? It appears there are still some of you out there reading on occasion, and I hope that despite my lack of attention to this space that you'll swing by from time to time.  

I'm excited to report that on Easter Sunday (tomorrow morn) we will be moving to a lovely little oasis in the city of Baltimore known as the Clipper Mill. It's a renovated mill/foundry that has been turned into condos, galleries and artist studios, and most importantly- home to the city's best known and tastiest restaurant, Woodberry Kitchen.

We're excited -and a bit exhausted- but thrilled about the move. More to come on that adventure soon...

Happy Easter, all. xo

p.s. This great photo up above had to be taken somewhere near Napa/Sonoma, yeah? We've been dreaming of buying a little plot of land in the wine country and popping a little pre-fab house on it in an effort to live the dream... Give it a few more years of dreaming first.

Spring Table

I am a big lover of yellow and gray/mustard and taupe/ and/or any other variation of these tones. Proof: we broke the rules and used these springy colors for our fall wedding, gasp! 

With the long spring that we're having these days in the mid-Atlantic, these tones seem to capture both the essence of the season both locally and in many parts of the world right now- bursts of bright color contrasted with doomy, gloomy skies and sudden bright and striking sunbursts. The drama of this season continues to impress me and reminds that there is life in the daylight.  

Don't know about you, but I'm loving spring this year, and this table runner would be perfect-o for Easter brunch, yeah? 

Two words: eggs benny. Or maybe just one: hollandaise.

Happy Monday!

A forest of colored pencils.  What an awesome outdoor installation.  

P.S. I loved spending a long weekend in Seattle.  Thanks to all who made it so memorable and lovely. xo!
