I don't know what has gotten into me these past few weeks but I am just tumbling through days and popping up for air when I can. There have been some lovely shining moments with friends and family and wine. But my weeks lately have really been filled with work. The good work, and I am so grateful. I got a promotion last week at my design job and I've been signing new clients with happy frequency. It's great, but it also makes me realize that as much as I want to be successful I also want to take three weeks, sit on the beach and read. Just trying to wrap my head around both.
I stumbled upon Plain English the other day via Pinterest and I've officially decided that there can be no one else to do the cabinetry in my dream kitchen. They may be a pond away but their work is seriously stunning and I'd gladly pay their way across the seas to come build me some beauties.
"We don't like gadgets and plastic bits. Most of our drawers run on candlewaxed wooden runners. Our shelf pegs are hand turned for us by a small company that makes wooden nails. Our baskets are hand woven for us in Suffolk from willow grown along the banks of the river box."
And on and on. Be still my beating heart. There is nothing that I love more than crafted furnishings done in a way that has been handed down through the generations.
