What I’m Digging

IMG_3781

Happy Friday, friends! And Happy Solstice! Hooray for the return of the light!

It’s crazy windy here this morning-55 mph wind gust crazy. When you live in an 11-acre forested cove, those kind of wind gusts can wreak some serious havoc. We’ve already lost power twice this morning, so I’m going to keep today’s round-up short and sweet.

I’ve got a Small Measures post up today on Design Sponge. I’m sharing my recipe for homemade chocolate mint patties. Oh. Yeah.

Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:

*Amy’s winter flowers. Breathtakingly beautiful.
*DIY stamped scarf=great last-minute handmade gift idea.
*I could easily live here, you know, forever.
*Excited for Modern Farmer.
*This eco builder would be wonderful for a (one day) renovation.
*Kate’s holiday drink recipes all sound heavenly.

We’re hosting another get-together for Handmade Gatherings (my newest book, due Spring 2014 from Roost) out here tomorrow evening. The theme is Winter Wonderland. It’s going to be a stunner, folks. A stunner!

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!

*Each Friday I post a photo of Huxley here because, truly, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most.

    Oh I wish I could come to your handmade gathering! We are having a solstice gathering of our own out here tonight- so excited! Thanks for the link- I’m interested in what Modern Farmer is going to produce. How it will look different from my favorite stand bys. Also- that home! Can I live in the out building?!?
