It’s the Little Things #80
Happy Friday! It’s time for some little things from this week. I hope you’re well and hanging in there. My hope is that these posts spark a little something with you, give you an idea or solve a problem for you too. It might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.
I went through my recipe binders last week and took out old recipes we haven’t used in awhile and reorganized it a bit. Do you have recipe binders? I love using them for menu planning and just as a method for holding on to special and important recipes. Here’s a post on how to put together a recipe binder if you’re interested.
We had built-in bookcases built and installed for our family room after we re-did our hardwood floors in February and I’ve been struggling to find just the right component of books and decorative accessories. But then I found @dreamywhiteslifestyle on Instagram. Goodness, her photography and French antiques and linens is well, for lack of a better word, dreamy. Find the Dreamy Whites website and shop here. I’ve purchased a few pieces – ironstone and French canning jars are my downfall. I can’t wait to show you the whole room when I finish!
I’d like to say that I’ve been busy reading and sewing and crocheting during this time, but I’ve found that with the kids home and online school it’s been busy. I finally feel like we’re getting into a little bit of a groove now that we know we won’t be going back to school this year 🙁 Here’s one book that I have paged through and it’s really good and the photographs are delightful! Simply Living Well by Julia Watkins.
Did you see the Spring Edition of Clean Mama Quarterly? Little habits, small acts, things that seemingly have no impact on anyone outside of our homes but they mean so much. I wanted to bring you something NEW, different and a little pause in your season. That’s how the Clean Mama Quarterly began. I find that this helps me slow down so I have time to do some of the things that are really important. You know the things that make life fun and memorable? Let’s do more of those.
What have you been enjoying this week? Any little things to share?
