Poofy buns, softy hearts, and straws gone wild: It’s Friday I’m in Love

Pinterest Love: Y’all were digging on these crochet hearts from Belle Amour.

Beautiful Thing I Read: I really enjoyed reading Oliver Sacks’ essay in the New York Review of Books titled The Bull on the Mountain (which I believe is an excerpt from his book A Leg to Stand On). The piece chronicles his near-death experience destroying his leg while on a solo hike in the hills above a Norwegian village. When he recounts the memories that ran through his head as he approached death, I found myself moved by the clarity with which he recalled his childhood garden in London. I had a thought appear in the back of my mind as I read, a strange hope that some day, when I am long gone and Scarlet is very old, that she might remember our garden in the same way. I found this thought very comforting.

Hairstyle I tried: This updo from Parlor Diary. Whaddya think?

Project we wished we had posted: Straw dispenser turned pencil dispenser! Genius! Spotted on etsy.

Thing I acquired and utterly adore: Well, I gave this to my hubs for his birthday and he adores it. It’s a Linus Roadster Sport Limited Edition. So pretty!

So, what have y’all been clicking on, cooking up, and crafting this week?




I learned some HTML to be able to code for some specific parts of my brand new tutorial blog…although I’m learning that a lot of great detail goes into each post I am LOVING the learning as I go…and seeing the end result.I definitely have a new found respect for what you both have been doing this whole time that I have been following you:D Keep it up!

Thanks for your posting. Another issue is that being photographer consists of not only trouble in capturing award-winning photographs and also hardships in acquiring the best
camera suited to your requirements and most especially challenges in maintaining the
quality of your camera. This is certainly very correct and apparent for those photography addicts that
are into capturing the nature’s captivating scenes – the mountains, the
particular forests, the particular wild and the seas.
Visiting these adventurous places certainly requires a dslr camera that can surpass the wild’s unpleasant areas.
