Some Faves this Week:

I am sorry things have been quiet around the blog front lately, but things have been crazy with work and my brother's wedding. I am happy to get back into the blogging mood and geared up to share some new recipes for fall. These are actually some of my faves from the last couple of weeks:


I have really been enjoying

My Yoga Online

. It's like Watch It Instantly on Netflix, but for yoga. They have monthly membership and the videos are great. It's refreshing to get up a little early and do a quick practice before work or something to unwind before bed.


Now, not just a fave this week, but of all time is the artwork of the late, Margaret Kilgallen. She has always been an inspiration to me; poetic and celebrating the greatness in every subject, even the ordinary. This week I have found myself constantly referring back to "

Margaret Kilgallen: In the Sweet Bye & Bye

," a collection of her work coupled with biography and interviews. It is a beautiful hardbound book put out by Redcat. I've been toying with the idea for a while now of getting my next tattoo of one of her pieces, Matokie Slaughter, a figure in folk history which is reoccurring in her work. I highly recommend checking out her and her work in these two videos:

Beautiful Losers



I love these little felt creatures by Sabina of

Royal Mint

. She was the featured seller on Etsy today and I instantly fell in love with her work and her


. I really love folk art and her celebration of it and their stories. My favorite is Papuan Spirit Bear (seen above).

Okay, technically it was a week ago...but my favorite thing was witnessing and being included in the wedding of my brother, Keith and his bride, Theresa. I love these two and was so happy to be a part of their amazing wedding.

Youth Lagoon - Montana


Tyler T Williams




I am a little behind the times, but I have recently fallen in love with Youth Lagoon, their dreamy and howling songs. The music video "Montana" by Tyler T Williams is also no exception: it is beautiful, haunting and a sobering look at Americana.
