Yay, it’s Friday! It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and the busyness continues on Monday when Tom and I head to NYC and then San Diego for his work. I’m lucky enough to tag along so that I can explore and hunt for vintage treasures, and I’m really excited for the trips even though I’ve been to both cities before. Here are the things that have piqued my interest recently!
1. New York City. Alright folks, where should I visit while I’m in NYC? I’m looking for good/cheap restaurants, flea markets, thrift stores, hidden gems…so if you know of any please let me know!!
2. After the Jump Podcasts by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. I discovered these podcasts right before Christmas, and I’m officially hooked. They are great inspiration for small business owners, creatives, bloggers, and anyone who is interested in art and design. The first one I listened to (episode 99) featured Emily Henderson and a few other creative-type business owners, and they discussed working for free in the design community (not necessarily a good thing), and why you need to charge what your time and skills are worth. You should definitely check this out if you need a little creative education!
I loooooove Thai food but have never attempted cooking it before. Last Saturday all that changed though, and I may not order shrimp pad Thai ever again. This recipe from Cooking Light is AMAZING, and was actually really simple to make! You need to try this!!!
4. Etsy Shop.
This foo dog, the ginger jars and the brass and lucite candlesticks will all be listed in my shop!
Y’all! I’ve finally started photographing the items I’m going to list on Etsy! I’m hoping to start listing items next week, so stay tuned!
Aren’t these the most darling napkins? And they are a DIY project too! My sewing skills probably aren’t good enough to make these, but the tutorial on Design Mom is really thorough, so maybe one day I’ll give them a shot.
