inspiration nation: Nadinoo and Herriott Grace

i'm finding myself in the process of working on several projects right now, which can be the toughest part of getting stuff done. the initial excitement of starting something has faded a bit, but that satisfying feeling of accomplishment when a project is completed is nowhere to be found either. this is when it's easy to give up, call it a day, and walk away from the whole thing, right? at a time like this, only the beautiful work of others can help, so here are a couple of my recent favourites. please feel free to swoon with me.

Nadinoo: ever since a friend introduced me to this clothing line a couple years ago, i haven't been able to get enough. i have saved up to buy a few of my favourite items, but it is so tough to choose because i basically want them all. please check out Nadinoo's gorgeous video "Sounds of the Woods" to enjoy some of her most recent collection. you're going to be hooked, don't say i didn't warn you.

Herriott Grace: not only does Herriott Grace make items out of wood and ceramics that will knock your socks off, but she has the prettiest blog, too. i mean, check out this post about ice cream clouds! i love the idea, now, and child me would've definitely flipped her lid over this one.

it is surely no coincidence that both of the blogs linked in this post have serene and beautiful pictures of their respective countrysides. i feel like i can smell the grass and mud in them! i think that means that i'll have to make my way to my own nearby countryside as soon as the ground begins to thaw, and maybe take pictures of my own.

    1. yes, PLEASE. warm weather is not that far off, so i think it's close to planning time!

    2. I could really go for another day trip like our st. jacobs market/diner brunch/thrift store/ice cap adventure.

    3. let's scheme and come up with a getaway plan.
