Happy Friday, everyone! Have anything fun planned for this weekend? Here is my second installment of Picking Favorites to hopefully send you off into your weekend on a relaxed, stress-free note!
As fall really sets in and the weather continues to drop, I can’t help but fantasize about being in the countryside. When all is said and done, I think it’s where I belong. I’m googley-eyed over this barn from A Complete Life. I could walk the property with one of these cups in hand, sipping a warm drink and taking in the beautiful scenery. (These cups are from PRESERVE, Blake Lively’s new online marketplace. Each cup is handmade, and no two are the same.) When I finish my drink, I could settle into a knitting project with some of Rachel Duvall‘s hand-dyed organic indigo fiber. I can see it all now!
I’m a believer in less is more, and these ceramic bowls from WAGOKORO are dreamy to say the least. The color palette of these cotton scarves from enhabiten lends itself nicely to fall clothing. Mustard yellow is such a fantastic color, but it’s always so hard for me to pull off with blonde hair. And with these whimsical, dreamy red berries from Moods of the Moon, I am reminded that the holidays are around the corner. I am so excited to celebrate Thanksgiving with Anne’s family and Christmas with mine! We have a lot to be thankful for, and I am looking forward to the family time.
Who would have thought to use the bottom of a crystal glass to make an elegant cookie mold? They look like different kinds of snowflakes, and could make a perfect Christmas cookie! While I can’t find the source of this picture, this baking project is definitely on my list of things to try. These last two pictures are showing me just how powerful the color green can be, especially this time of year. Green and white pair so nicely together. This sweater picture from Old Man Sea evokes the countryside and all-things natural, and Matt and Lentil Purbrick’s living room brings that woody feeling indoors in a relaxed, well-styled way.
Check out my first installment of Picking Favorites here if you missed it, and stay tuned for more favorites to come!
Just stumbled across your blog and noticed the beautiful mug in the first collage. They are absolutely gorgeous, as are the rest of your photographs.
Thank you, Liza! I didn’t take the photos for Picking Favorites (they’re images I’ve found around the Internet), but I hope you keep reading posts on Scissors & Sage for more photographs by me! -Victoria
I definitely will keep reading, because your photos are also beautiful! (I meant them all, not just the Picking Favorites. 🙂 )
