things i love thursday...

My new studio is tops on my list this week.  It's coming along slowly but surely and that includes my cork inspiration wall.  I have just a little patch up so far...


Can we talk about the closet that Andrew Henry has outfitted for me to use as my "shipping center"?  My heart goes pitter patter...


and it wouldn't be a things I love Thursday post without a little something to nibble on would it?  Tess from Life at Willow Manor recently published a gluten free dessert - Lemon Polenta Cake.  I am in love with it's dense texture and subtle nutty flavor.  I think it would be best with a little creme fraiche or unsweetened cream, I had neither but I did have some homemade strawberry sauce which didn't disappoint!


What are you loving this week?

Oooooo - LOVE the shipping center! Is that MJM in the big hat with her cheeks hanging out! LOL! Way cute! I think BAM might like your cake too - he is fully embracing his gluten-free-ness.

Today I am loving that more and more I am see, after much practice, I am finally learning to be at peace in the midst of storms.

Peaceful and joyful - what a great place to be.

I am DYING over your shipping area. I'm afraid if it were mine, it would only look like that for about half a day. If that. I wish I were that organized. It is oh so pretty!

Denalee, not everything looks that organized over here I can assure you.
Bronwyn - ha, this is only day two of the closet, give me time :)

Love the shipping closet! Kudos to A.H.
I am loving the daffodils around town, the blossoming trees and the migratory birds now returning to our area.

I am loving that I picked up the first hint of citrus blossoms in the air this past weekend. The best part of Spring...

MJM said...

I'm loving that I'll be home soon!!!

Felicity said...

The cooler crispness in the morning air as we make our slow descent into Autumn [your Fall] in my pocket of the world.

Your space is really taking shape Jeanette and I agree Andrew Henry is a whizz and you make a great team.

I'm also loving packages that come all the way from the desert that spark my creativity and will be a gift that keeps on giving for a very long time!

i love that you do a "things i love thursday..." i've thought so before, but not said so. but what a fantastic idea :)

what do i love in my own life right now? so much. and you've inspired me to go make a list. thank you. one thing i'll say right now is, i love my daughter. and this may be the first time i've ever said this too but, i love staying home with her. i'm so glad i didn't make myself go back to work before i felt ready even though i never in a million years thought i'd be a stay at home mom. but now i feel proud. and lucky. i'm so grateful i get this chance to share all this time with her before she grows up and wants nothing more to do with me :)

wishing you well always! thanks for sharing your positive energy and inspiration :)
