book // food // decor // + more

Many of you have probably seen the ‘something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read’ series that a handful of bloggers do on a regular basis. Bleubird is the first that comes to mind. And while I like these posts, it just doesn’t quite fit what I want to do in my own home-blog space. First, I am no fashion blogger- scratch the ‘something to wear’ column. Second, I don’t really ‘need’ much, so scratch that, too. After several failed attempts at rhyme, this is what I’ve come up with: a book, a food, a piece of decor, and then one more thing. Things I like. I enjoy the last category particularly; it leaves me feeling less hemmed in, more free to roam.

Book. I’m currently reading this for book club and am finding it a page-turner, a fun read.

Food. My sister told me that the pudding I posted about here is vastly inferior to this recipe and I took her word for it. No regrets. It’s so good.

Decor. This reminds me of our new sheets. Too matchy-matchy? Maybe, but I am a sucker for a birch veneer tray.

+ More. In search of a summertime replacement for my beloved bonnet, I ran across this on my friend Maggy’s pinterest. Love.

Emily - I am afraid of cutting the bangs, but you’re right- they can always be pulled back with a wrap or something.

I agree wholly with your Gone Girl proclamation!

Haley - Also: If you pick out fabric or a scarf that you like, we could totally make that bandana headband on your next visit!

Emily - Since, oh, last week. Our second cousin who lives in town invited me! It WAS fun.

Emily - Yes! But, I don’t know what kind of fabric. Does it have to be stretchy?

Haley - No, it doesn’t have to be stretchy.
