Let’s just not talk about the day

a baby alpaca nursery, kilim boots, diy copper wall hooks, and baked brown butter doughnuts
Have I mentioned I’m a little bit superstitious?

… so I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t secretly waiting for a piano to drop from the sky (that doesn’t happen where you live?).

Stay safe today — keep your eye on the sky — and have an amazing weekend! The sun will come out when the curly-haired girl said it will… and I have some really fun things to share with you next week!

Eye this baby alpaca nursery — it’s pretty much perfect.

Buy these kilim boots I’m coveting.

Make these diy copper plumbing pipe hooks.

Bake these brown butter doughnuts.

The new pope is kind of awesome.

Mind. Blown.

I thought he was going to say “smash the garlic with the bowl” lol! Have a great weekend, and stay safe out there today, Laicie! xo
