This post is part of a series I do to write important things I need to tell you about and a mix of homemaker stuff. And let’s be honest, sometimes popular culture BECAUSE I HAVE THOUGHTS. I love doing things by the seasons, so I share one that often. There are some re-occuring categories such as: “netflix-ing,” “unpopular opinion,” “all is vanity,” “into it!,” and “I am not tech-y, but.”

merch: rifle paper co. rugs at loloi! also i forgot to include this in autumn, but i trust you saw gwenyth paltrow designed furniture for cb2?

color world: I like seeing some fresh colors in retail! A complex oxblood that isn’t the same old palette everywhere. And also at target I would love this basket hung on an exterior side door or garage door with flowers or wheat.

no such thing as bad weather: I checked this book out from the library. I only ended up skimming, because kind of reading the summary on the back serves as enough to get the whole concept. It inspired me for the coming winter, that with just making sure you have good clothing, you can keep playing outside a lot, in almost all weather. Just amazon-ed some snow pants and good gloves for everybody. And I got these hooks to hang at kid height in the mudroom so everyone can be responsible for putting their items away.

all is vanity: Just when I started to crowd source from friends an amazing hand cream recommendation for cold months, David was researching something for his hands and found this working hands hand cream that we now both love! We ordered three and keep them in different spots around the house for everyone. Can’t remember if I’ve shared this before but this is the only lip chap I use.

netflix-ing: I dare you to tell me a television show you love with zero sexual content that isn’t a period costume drama.

bake time: gingerbread cookies didn’t used to be a christmas “must” for me, but now that I have this soft ones recipe I love I genuinely look forward to them. Also martha caught my eye with these sugar dusted macaroon trees.

into it!: beautiful, understated christmas decor ideas here and here.

insta life: I don’t follow many brands and don’t buy much vintage online, but this feed was so inspired they won me over for a follow!

on cookbooks: I like the look decoratively of cookbooks in a kitchen and would love to build up a stash as I’m finishing styling out phase two of our kitchen. BUT THEY ARE EXPENSIVE! And they aren’t really essential because mostly I use the internet. But they look good and are still fun to turn to now and then. Where can I get cookbooks for discounted prices? Because just buying like five would be like, $100. I used to use, but they died sadly.

    Marshalls/TJ Maxx Home Goods for cookbooks! Popular ones for a fraction of the price.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Oh nice. I didn’t think of that.

    For cookbooks, don’t rule out Salvation Army and Goodwill – I’ve found many that are barely used if at all.

    • Rachel Schultz

      So true!

  • I buy cookbooks at library sales! I love vintage ones, which I also get at library sales.
