on the farm.

As summer comes to a {sad} end, I look back at my much-neglected, much loved blog and all the wonderful things I have to share these days and commit to being more frequent in my postings.

We've been "on the farm" for several months now. We're in the midst of building a new house {and studio!} and as I'm sure the kids would put it - having the time of our lives living in the country with my in-laws on the family farm. It's so beautiful here and I find a little dose of inspiration in something new every day.

I wish to live in a barn and this just might be as close as it comes for now.

Take a peek at my Instagram to get just a tiny glimpse of what we've been up to and I hope you'll enjoy seeing a little more on the blog these days!

The Passing Down of Heirlooms: Composition Books.

As the school year comes to a tragic start once again for children across the US, I can't help but smile as long-standing composition books continue to grace back-to-school shelves everywhere. Once a pretty standard staple for school children, these black & white books with straight-lined paper are simply iconic. I actually think they are quite lovely, and generally stock up when the adorn the shelves this time of year, as their simple black spines make for a nice way to keep your notes & thoughts collected and stored together on an office shelve or in a worn laptop bag.

A perfect heirloom item that, despite it's commonality today, has remained year after year a staple item to stock for journaling for years to come.
