Lovely Things #7

Hello! YAY! Another Lovely Things post comes together. I’m clearly feeling pretty summery over here and I feel like a lot of these things would be nice wedding gifts or birthday gifts for Cancers and Leos. My birthday is coming up and I’m trying to resist the melancholy, but I suppose that’s probably futile. I’m pushing it back by being really enamored with what people are making right now and having fun doing deep dives into handmade magic rabbit holes. I hope you like my finds, too! See MORE LOVELY THINGS. ♥

Stone fruit is coming, so I’m thinking about this Peach Maple Soda recipe.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-anita-ekberg-la-dolce-vita

Happy weekend, friends. This has been a tough week for a lot of reasons. On Tuesday evening, we lost a beloved family member in Minneapolis — our sweet niece Madeline. It’s hard to lose a loved one and it’s even harder when it is a young person with so much ahead of them. She passed peacefully and is no longer in pain or being poked and prodded — this is the only comfort. We’re looking forward to being with family soon, loving everyone up, and helping in any way we can. Have a wonderful weekend — see you next week! xoxo Jen

Mighty Vintage: Educational Posters

I found so many amazing things at Mighty Vintage, but I’m particularly drawn to Timea’s fantastic selection of vintage educational posters. I love the Poppies Botanical Poster, the Water Lily Botanical Chart, the Primrose Botanical Chart, the Heather Botanical Poster, the Knitting School Chart, the Gekko Zoology Chart, and the Butterfly School Chart. I’d love to hang a few of them around my house. There’s just so much wonderful stuff in this little shop. Timea has a great eye for special pieces, colors, and clean lines. Looking around the rest of the shop, the Candy-colored Aluminum Cups, the Mini Moon Globe, the Brass Cat Ring Holder, the Hand-carved Owl Bookends, and the White and Copper Pendant Light all caught my eye.
