Little Touches

I’ve been working with some awesome bloggers and creatives recently, helping them make their websites even more amazing. And…well, I’ve been so inspired by some of them, I just had to gush. And Emily’s beautiful ceramics seemed like a brilliant place to start.  Aren’t they the sweetest?

Farm Style in a Big City

dailymemo1

Wide open spaces. Orchards. The rustle of wind in the trees. I’ve been craving these things lately, so much that I’m beginning to wander if I need to consider moving to a home with a little farm or garden. At the same time, I do love my big city apartment and all the excitement being in a place like Washington, DC brings.

So instead, I’m considering injecting some old-fashioned farm style into my current pad, starting with a wood farm table. Wood and I have a love affair going on. I wonder if it’s because I’m an Earth sign — it just sings to me. The creativity flows when I write at a wooden desk or table. And the more rustic, the more enchanted I become.

Since traveling to Scotland, I’ve been dreaming of moving to the Isle of Skye and making a home there. I would take anything, and I thought a small croft home would suit me well. Then a friend sent me a link to this home in Tokavaig by Dualchas Architects, called The Shed. Skye was heaven enough for me, but this? I would never come back.

Beaver Brook

Inevitably, in the middle of every August, I find myself longing for a month-long retreat in the woods, in a small cabin surrounded by tall trees. It’s not as if I grew up spending my summers in forested areas where the nights are dark and still, but it’s always been a dream. Someday, I’ll have a little cabin somewhere, probably on the West Coast, where a morning stroll takes me to cliffs and the Pacific Ocean. For now, I’m daydreaming about this little place called Beaver Brook.

Do you find yourself wanting a retreat right about now? Where would you go?
