Friday Footnotes


A friend found this little gem this week, and it makes for great fun to read! Some of my favorite Shakespearean insults are: "You heedless jolt-heads," "A pox damn you muddy rascal!" Or combine them for hyperbolic effect such as, "Sanctimonious pirate, you ruinous butt!"


Liking this fresh spring color combination of mint and yellow!


I've been inspired to include more paintings in our home decor. I'll be searching this First Friday weekend in Kansas City's West Bottoms-turned antique district for some different pieces.


You had me at St. Germain and fresh thyme. In my house, my husband makes the cocktails, so I'll be sure to pass this gimlet recipe onto him.

Budapest was uber stylized, a visual treat!My husband, the graphic designer, said it had the most beautiful typography. The movie was zany, ridiculous, charming, and hilarious. Loved it. I said that already.

Happy Friday!

1. At a recent party, a friend made hot cider on the stovetop and it made my apartment smell amazing! I was excited to find this aroma recipe for Autumn gatherings with friends and family. There is something so wonderful about walking into a warm, lit home with delectable aromas when the weather gets cold and the nights get longer. 834b8043c3c640da22ea104d7f84cbf9























2. Design Sponge put together this list of bookish home goods. I love the Hermes fabric and the wallpapers.

















3. I'm loving the black on black with a hint of gold color palette for Halloween.
















4.  Huffington Post, Huff Books posted this article about one of my favorite books, Jane Eyre. The article is called, "11 Lessons That Jane Eyre Can Teach Every 21st Century Woman About How To Live Well."








5. I've been debating about getting an army green parka from H&M, and the lovely Coline from fashion blog, Et Pourqoui Pas Coline, has convinced me to go for it with this lovely photo. I love that plaid scarf as well.





















Happy Friday!!!

Here are some of my favorite finds this week. 1. Jana Christy has done some charming illustrations featuring my favorite character from the BBC TV series Call the Midwife. Seasons One and Two are streaming on Netflix. But I warn you, you'll be laughing and crying multiple times in each episode!




















2. I love this classic great a-line skirt made by Mata Traders, a fair-trade brand employing and empowering tradeswomen in Indian and Nepal.



3. I found this Darling Magazine Article, "With Eyes that Look Out," encouraging. "Let’s be women with eyes that look out. Let’s be unafraid to claim our distinct bodies, gifts, and stories—however distinct they may be from the cultural ideal—and generous enough to encourage each other toward the same goal."











4. 10 Recipes with Apple Cider from blog, Oh the Lovely Things.




















5. The Nate Berkus for Target Home Collection, Fall 2013. I love that candelabra and basket!

















Happy Friday!
