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’m probably going to always be someone who engages with “the arts” AND I HAVE THOUGHTS. I love doing things by the seasons, so I share one that often. There are some re-occuring categories such as: “all is vanity,” “a follow,” “into it!,” “prime-able,” “a cry for help,” and “I am not tech-y, but.” All of it is here!

big news!!: if you like these posts, you’ll LOVE LOVE the new shop page! it’s where i put a curation of links to buyable things i think you would like and i like too. many of which are on amazon and prime-able. right now there are home decor, children, favorite books, children’s books, kitchen, and favorite cookbooks sections. i have ideas for a few more too like cleaning, cosmetics, and clothing (mom and kids). let me know if you have any other ideas you want to see. A thing about me, I like beautiful versions of even utilitarian things (and definitely kid things too). YOU KNOW THIS.

a cry for help: related to sourcing. i am pretty into sourcing cute versions of things and one that i have never seen a good one of is a puddle jumper. please contact me with help if you ever find one.

mom style: i needed a new purse that fits the iphone 11 but is still small. out of necessity that I just needed one because i couldn’t do another round of errands with my phone half fitting in my purse and in danger of crashing to the cement, I ordered this one and it was only $17.50 came like, instantly and had lots of color options. pleased!

a follow: please be aware there’s a sweet man on the @farrowandball account doing the most lovable and quaint “dose of color” series.

into it!: strands of wooden beads are a versatile, stylish decor element. i ordered these very inexpensively and strung a bunch of them up and put tassels on the end and they add great little layer to so many places!

prime-able: a plant (on amazon) that doesn’t really die. even with zero sunlight. which given plants 101 i don’t understand but god made a wonderful world!

kitchen stuff: my all time favorite cutting board. never warps and is fine with hot stuff. AND GOES IN THE DISHWASHER. i still have the first ones i bought, eight years and counting.

  • Hi Rachel,

    Thank you for the post.

    Question on the cutting boards. Do you need to put anything under them so they don’t slip?

    Thank you

      Nope! I’ve not had any problems with that.
