Yesterday we took the train into the city and on the way back I treated myself to the British Country Living. Rested my tired feets on the train soaking that baby up on the ride back here to the country. I thought I'd do a little Friday Favorites posting. I noticed those type of posts are going 'round blogland and well, I just enjoy them. Here's my weeks little list of loves.
I stumbled across this post on food photography and it really spoke to me. Now I haven't ever submitted my photos to sites like Foodgawker, ecetra - never felt the interest in doing that. But I love how she writes about letting your spirit come out in your photos when developing your photography style. The best blog post I've ever read about photography all year - straight to my heart and something to ponder.
I love the tranquility and simple farm living that Fig and Fauna shares with their readers. This post on fig and honey cream cheese spread makes my mouth water.
I am redecorating our powder room and I am wanting to add these towels and this soap. I have a very small and simple powder room in the garage door/laundry room wing of my house.
I am loving this kitchen. These photos exemplify the style I am most driven to - simple, neutral, a little bit modern country, a little bit coastal, a little bit Hamptons, a little bit farmhouse style - you get my thought. So inspiring. I can look again and again.
I've been decluttering, purging, simplifying the house all week. Trying to keep the neutrals thing my focus. I always get so absorbed in my purge the house days; that's why I've been away from the blog. I was doing the kitchen drawers today and finding useless gadgets shoved to the back of the drawer. I realized I will probably never use a red plastic lettuce cutter. Into the donation box it goes. I need to start staying with the classic things and avoiding the trends; it just comes down to that. With fashion too and I'm finally getting it.
Have a happy sweet weekend.
