bread & honey : a new weblog.

I am quite excited about posting this. Within this past week, my friend Alice and I decided to put our love of food and productivity in the kitchen to good use: we have created a food blog. Bread & Honey is a place for us to write about and share our experiences food, be it cooking, baking, tasting, buying, or just plain enjoying it. If you have time, please comment and let us know what you think!


tara donne.

The work of Tara Donne truly inspires me. Tara is a "long limbed and graceful" photographer who resides in New York and takes photographs of her favorite things: food, travel, and friends. She has had a number of impressive clients including Domino, Martha Stewart Living, Cookie, and Real Simple. Each one of her images is just so beautifully shot- oh, how I love them.

a thank you & pretty plates.

First of all, I would like to say a big "thank you" for the comments and emails regarding the new layout. It makes me so happy to read all the kind words- I appreciate all of you more than I can say.

Second of all, look at this beautiful dishware I just came across at Deschoulieres! I just adore the simple and darling utensil designs.


new layout!

Just a quick note before I end things here for the weekend: I just whipped together a simple new layout that I hope you enjoy. The font used for the header is by the oh-so talented graphic designer Blake E. Marquis (thanks to Emily for the link!). This layout also features a small "about" section on the side.

Have a good weekend everyone!

sweet paul.

Sometimes I get completely lost on Sweet Paul, the food/design weblog of food and interior stylist Paul Lowe. The photographs and sets on there are completely breathtaking- his recent Vanilla post happens to be my favorite. Such perfection.

I am madly in love with the work of illustrator/designer Emily Forgot, or Emily Alston. The above pieces are from her Playground Plates collection and are available for purchase in her shop (£35 for set of 3). So very lovely.

catherine campbell : water girls.

I am constantly in awe of the beautiful artwork of Catherine Campbell, a.k.a. my folk lover. She posted the above painting today, which is for the La Femme show at Nucleus Gallery, and I am actually quite sure it is my favorite one she has done yet. Isn't it just gorgeous?

More from Catherine: her Etsy shop and her flickr photostream.


50 ways to help.

If you are interested in learning new small ways that you can help become a little bit greener, the folks over at Wire & Twine compiled a fabulous list of 50 Ways to Help the Planet which can be seen here. I am definitely going to start working harder on living more eco-friendly, since I feel like I have been slacking off a bit lately. I hope you all do the same!

eco-friendly children.

Good afternoon everyone! I apologize for not posting yesterday- both of my boys have been sick with the flu so I haven't had much time to spend on my computer. Luckily, they both seem to be feeling much better now. Speaking of my boys, London, my youngest one, is one year old today! This year has gone by so quickly and I really cannot believe it has been a whole year already. Since both his birthday and Earth Day occur on the same day, I thought it would be nice to do an eco-friendly kid post featuring some of my favorite sustainable and/or organic baby and children's items. So enjoy and Happy Earth Day!

three potato four.

Every once in awhile I will revisit a shop that I haven't looked at in awhile and fall completely in love with it all over again. This is the case with Three Potato Four which has been linked all over the past couple of days because of their Action Against Hunger Milk Bottle Program. It is just such a lovely little shop filled with so many one-of-a-kind beauties.
