Out Like a Lamb

March 14, 2019

Well, we’ll see. While we’re experiencing record low temperatures for March its the perfect time to start the segue to Spring with a simplequietmodern project like the Elementary Wrap from Purl Soho, knit up in their Linen Quill…a transitional combination of wool, alpaca and linen. Get it on the sticks now and you’ll be ready to wrap yourself up just in time for that first Spring outing.

Shown in Kettle Black, Linen Quill is available in 30 additional colors. And, the pattern is free…https://www.purlsoho.com/create/2018/05/02/elementary-wrap-in-linen-quill/

Give a bunch or two…

March 10, 2019

keep a bunch or two. Nothing sparks up a gray, blustery March day like a fistful of sunshine. So, as we wait for Springs arrival, brighten someone’s day, as well as your own, with a bunch or two of natures perfect yellow…Daffodils. Available everywhere for a couple of bucks a bunch, you can’t go wrong.

And, nothing holds two bunches as perfectly as this Tall Modern Cup from Heath Ceramics.The current glazes available can be seen here: https://www.heathceramics.com/products/tall-modern-cup-in-turmeric

Better Than Takeout

March 6, 2019

Nothing hits the spot on a cold Winter day better than a hot bowl of soup. And, if you can whip up a steaming bowl of comfort in a just a few minutes with only 5 pantry ingredients….well, I’m on it. I’ve had a craving lately for Egg Drop Soup. So, when l ran across this simple recipe on Food52 I knew I had to give it a try. Add an egg roll and you’ve got lunch or a light supper.
