She: slender as glass

I'm afraid, companions, I have little to offer you on this luscious early spring afternoon.

I still don't have the internet (so am writing this covertly in my office at work), I do have a ridiculously huge fridge (but have yet to produce any new recipes of note), and come Friday will have a fabulous collection of thrifted seventies furniture to wow you with. Oh, and my new herb garden, planted lovingly in funky vintage crates.

Living with friends without a television or the internet has thusly proven fruitful. On Monday night we played a mean game of Scrabble, and last night I cooked potato and onion hash with fried eggs while the boys wrote a very TV on the Radio-esque song on Garage Band, using lyrics from a magnetic poem I'd written on the fridge (it went along the lines of she slender as glass/ he immense as a bomb. Deep much?). It all feels awfully wholesome. I think I might even bake bread, and if it proves successful, share with thee the recipee.

In the mean time, here are some of my recent Etsy purchases, which I hope will bring some cosy homelyness to the currently rather empty spaces of our new house. Please peruse, buy, feed a starving artist. Seriously, it's addictive. Plus, the sellers always send the cutest little thank you cards with their products, which I, for one, find fills me with the most satisfying feelings of warmth.

The Royal Couple set of prints, $20 (US) from Almost Famous.

Alpenglow and Growth Patterns from groundwork, $20 (US) each.

Screen printed linen pillowcases, from maramiki.
