what’s that, you say? you’ve procrastinated with the task of finding your mother the perfect gift for mother’s day? fantastic, because I have a few suggestions. moms are the best and deserve a little something. these are all mom-approved; i know because i got them from my mom’setsy favorites. so get on it, there’s not much time left!
I had the day off because of the rain, and instead of being productive…it’s been a web-surfing kind of day. Seriously. Look how many tabs I have open.
Much of my time was devoted to pinterest. I love pinterest. Who doesn’t?! Here are my favorite pins today. (please excuse the terrible formatting. CSS code and I are not getting along! EDIT: my issues seemed to have mysteriously resolved themselves. anyone else hate being a code dummy?)
These seafoam green and turquoise hues always reminds me of summers spent in Cape Cod while growing up: drip-drop castles in the sand, peanut-butter-and-fluff sandwiches for lunch, quahog hunting at low tide and my grandma’s whoopie pies waiting when we get home from Skaket Beach. These memories are enough to warm my heart, even on a cold and rainy April day.
I have a best friend that craves salad. Like, eats it a million times a week. How are we even friends? I need carbs carbs carbs. Pasta, sandwiches and the bakery are what my heart needs to feel satisfied. It should probably be my stomach that’s satisfied, but it sure feels like its my heart that’s full when I’m devouring a veggie panini.
When everyone else is on facebook at work, I’m at home baking.
That generalization is, for the most part, grossly true. I don’t believe I’ve told you about my (f)unemployment.
I’m a seasonal worker. Thank the Lord, because I don’t think I could handle working all year round. I whole-heartedly respect everyone who does, because to maintain my sanity I need an off-season. I’m blessed that the man in my life can provide for me and my baking addiction, although I’m pretty sure he doesn’t mind that I do, well, most things around here. I don’t know how people get it all done at home while working, because you do not want to see our house in the summer. Disaster.
I feel like doing something a little different with handmade monday today. Sound good? People can put some of their favorite Etsy items in a collection called a treasury. Here are a few calming treasuries for your Monday, because that’s the kind of Monday I had. And I want you to have that kind of Monday, too.
