Finnish Woman from the Eyes as Big as Plates photo series

  • I’m signing off for the week to enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend, feeling very thankful this year. Summing it up in a couple of sentences sounds trite, but please accept a simple and heartfelt thank you to all of you.

  • These Finnish Eyes as Big as Plates photos by Riittai Konen and Karoline Hjorth are stunning. Beautiful. Inspiring.

  • The 7 word autobiographies of famous creatives (Joan Didion, David Byrne, Madeleine Albright, and many others) are pretty clever.

  • Feel the fear.

    I read your post on throw blankets since I am now admitting that I have a blanket obsession. My husband makes fun of me constantly for it. :) Anyway, these amazing blankets are made in a town not far from me here in MN. They reopened the factory a couple years ago and are using the same looms and patterns that the company began with and are also creating new, more modern designs as well. I really hope you’ll check out http://www.faribaultmill.com/ I absolutely love the deer jacquard wool thrown, amazing weaving!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    We have plenty of room for our artificial tree, but I am seriously considering not putting one up this year. I have a huge indoor houseplant that is in the window right next to where the tree will go, and I realized today, as I was decorating for Thanksgiving, that I could totally string lights on it. I have two boys, and they don’t really get into decorating the tree, so it’s mostly up to me, and it’s a lot of work.

      String lights go a long way toward making things Christmasy. ;)

    Jane (my 18yo) says if you want more bells to catch sharks and beetles at night on the island and then sell them at retail. Idk what all that means but at least then you’ll be able to get your fancy card table :)
