I am not a religious person, but a spiritual one. When life gets chaotic, this Buddha, next to my bed, reminds me to be calm and serene (or at least attempt to be ๐Ÿ˜Š).

My messy linen cupboard. I've collected textiles for as long as I can remember. Old linens are my favorite. I love to find beautiful linen damask tablecloths and napkins at estate sales. Usually you can get them for a song because no one uses them anymore.
I also love homespun European linens, grain sacks, mangle cloths and towels. They are often beautifully monogrammed, and I can't help but wonder who owned and used them. I use and wash my linens, although I rarely iron them. I prefer the natural, wrinkly look, plus I would never be able to find the time to iron them. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I was playing with table settings yesterday, inspired by this gorgeous linen tablecloth (from Anthro's Tag Sale). Vintage goblets from @s_braaten, vintage Fireking, and Anthro mini cake stand. ๐Ÿ’—

Blackberry Buckle made with the blackberries in the previous photo.
The difference between a cobbler and a buckle is that the fruit goes on top of the buckle batter (and sinks in) instead of under, as in a cobbler. The batter is also more buttery and cake-like, where the cobbler is more of a biscuit batter. It's the perfect comfort dessert on such a cold and gray day. โ„๏ธ

Blackberries in winter.
Folklore in Britain tells that blackberries should not be picked after Michaelmas Day (Oct. 11th), as the devil has made them unfit by stepping, spitting, or fouling on them. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
I think these berries are safe, because they were grown in Mexico ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

I have a passion for old books. I love how they look, and the beautiful way they were made (often with marbled endpapers). I even love how they smell, as well as their design, typography and illustrations. But most of all, I love how they capture the moment in time in which they were written. Oftentimes the sentiments, ideas, practices and language are outdated, but I still find the content fascinating. ๐Ÿ“š

The Old Fashioned was invented in the 1880s by James E. Pepper, who was a bartender at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky. He brought the recipe to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar, in New York City, and it quickly became all the rage.
To make it, drop a sugar cube in an old fashioned glass, saturate it with bitters. Add a dash of water and muddle. Add ice, a jigger of whiskey, and garnish with a slice of orange. Cheers!! .

I love the designs and patina on old tins. Here, I have old tins mixed with new.
The British were the original producers of this method of storage, which became popular in the mid 19th century. These tins are made from sheets of steel with a thin coat of tin. The designs were printed directly on the tin with various methods. Tins were widely used for all kinds of packaging until around World War Two, when there were metal shortages. .

Tools of the Trade. As a food stylist, I use all kinds of brushes. These inexpensive pastry brushes have been a go to for as long as I can remember. Most of the tools I use are not top of the line. I'm extremely hard on the stuff I use, things get constantly thrown away (accidentally), and I simply don't have time to be careful with tools.
I shot these brushes on the stained concrete floor, because it has such a great patina. ๐Ÿ”ช๐ŸŽจโš™๏ธ .
