Friday's Worthy Links


It's Friday and we've made it!  And somehow I've managed to post 5 times this week... which feels nice.  I love to blog and share my creativity, but with life's commitments I can't always do it as much as I like.  Nevertheless, I always love catching up on other's blogs and finding new inspiration.  So today I thought I'd do a "Worthy Links" post to share a few of my favorite things going on around the interweb.

-Emily Henderson shares the story of her son's birth and it {almost} makes me want to have a baby.  The story is so raw yet so beautiful.  I love when big-name bloggers give us a glimpse in to their private lives.

-My favorite wedding planner, Jacin Fitzgerald of Lovely Little Details co-hosted a floral and fine foods workshop in San Francisco called Flour+Flowers.  She shared pictures and tidbits from the first class on her blog, and the images, including the above, were stunning.

- I discovered a few new online shop gem:  Old New House is a website with specialties in rugs, wall art, maps, furniture and repurposed decor.  What began as an Etsy shop run by couple Melissa and Dave has now become a full-fledged website of it's own.  The vintage, down-home feel of it is just lovely, and I'm dying for this early Peking rug fragment.  Wouldn't it make the perfect entry door rug?

-Meg Biram talks painting and the importance of hobbies in her latest post. She also references a quote from a book by Winston Churchill called Painting as a Pastime that really stuck with me:   "To be really happy and really safe, one ought to have at least two or three hobbies, and they must all be real."

  2. Flour+Flowers might be the best name I've ever heard for a combination food and flower workshop. That photo is gorgeous.

    Also, Winston Churchill was always great for excellent quotes, whether about perseverance, fighting the good fight, hobbies or any other topic!
