Oh! Some of you home-lovers will enjoy these gifts I gathered just for you today:
After this video, I felt as though I'd traveled to a gorgeous river in summer time (gotta love that). The couple's deck, floating garden, writing cabin, potato garden, bedroom and, well--all of it inspired me.
I did have to smile, though, when she stated something like, "There's a simplicity to living off-grid." She said that while my eyes were still glazed over from all the complicated details they'd had to take care of in order to do so!
Tom and I could never live this way, but for whatever reasons, we do love watching other people who do.
This young man will restore your hope in teenagers. A kid who's actually thinking ahead to his future! Didn't know there still was such a thing....smile... Loved the desk in the bay window, the siding, his proud grandpa, the boy's tenacity and the cleverness of the whole darn project.
From Scratch Magazine
Oh wow! The premier issue of this farm magazine is nearly like seeing a free issue of Mary Jane's Farm online. Gorgeous photography and informative articles for those who farm in reality or mostly inside their heads (like me). :) A special thanks to Robin for sharing this with me via Facebook!
Photos From Beverly Cleary's Childhood Home
And if you've enjoyed Beverly Cleary's books, especially her autobiographies, you'll love seeing photos of her childhood Portland, OR home. What a sweet house! Thank-you, Sara, for sharing this link with me at Facebook!
These gifts should keep you all busy awhile. Enjoy your Thursday whether you have sun or snow or something in between....
Oh! Did anyone else watch The Middle last night? The way the kids' project presentation came together was one of the most hilariously clever high school moments, ever. Laughed till I cried and even chuckled about it all the way up the stairs to my room.
