learning curve

I’m experiencing some steep learning curves right now. My mind is boggled to say the least. It’s a little bit like picking up a new language. At that moment not a lot is making sense but I’m sure if I immerse myself that slowly it will all start to come together. I just cross my fingers each night hoping that the baby Orla sleeps more or less through the night! I need as much of my brain power as I can muster.

As a result I’m making this short and sweet. Here are a few things that have caught my interest lately.

Picture 1

This house tour belonging to Brady Cunningham. I want that macrame textile hanging over the fireplace.


These stunning natural dyed Easter eggs. So much prettier than the garish store bought dyes. I’m totally giving this a try this weekend.


Kristin’s studio photographs of the two amazing women, Claudia Dey and Heidi Sopinka, behind the new Toronto based fashion label Horses Atelier. I want all of their dresses!


And finally a little interview with me on the West Elm blog!

    I’m sure you are a bit boggled at the moment! You’re going to be a fantastic Homes Editor – very exciting!
    Now about that macrame…I love it and everything else in that picture.

    You have to see those Horses dresses in person. The fabric is stunning and custom made for the dresses. Each dress feels like a perfect find at a vintage store. just love the tunic!
    thanks for including me in the round-up!

    As a follower of your blog I am constantly impressed by your talents and ability to seemingly “do it all.” Best of luck in your latest endeavour – and I hope little Orla gives you some restful nights!! Maybe you could share with us some of your baby sleep tips next ;)

    I so hear you on the learning curve!! And its actually refreshing to hear you are experiencing one too precisely because you always blow me away with your talent. I think you see to have discovered the perfect mix of precision and spontaneity in terms of design.
