5 Things This Weekend
Happy news! Pencil Shavings Studio has been nominated for the best decor blog at Better Homes & Gardens’ 2016 blogger awards. Woo!! Would you do me a HUUUUGE favor and run over to vote for PSS? I’d be ever so grateful. (And extra gold stars if you share this post!)
No major plans for the weekend other than hanging out and enjoying pretty weather. I particularly love that the weekends mean no hurrying out the door. Jude has been fully leaning in to the classic firstborn (read: a little buttoned-up and anal?) tendencies, marked in particular by his attention lately to timeliness. This is also due to the fact that he is now accurately telling time and that apparently the kids can now receive an award at school for punctuality. HAAAAAA
This manifests at home with Jude standing over us in the morning with a thread of anxiety in his voice. “It’s 6:55am!” he hisses.
(Internet, school does not begin until 8:15 and due to our proximity, it means we can leave at 8am.)
Then, the intensity of the hissing increases as the clock ticks forward, ever forward! “IT’S 7:30! DAD! ARE YOU READY?!”
I mean, it’s like The End Is Near every single day. Yesterday, Jude marched into our room and said “DAD. It’s 7:35. Are you going to stay in bed ALL DAY LONG?”
This house is like the most amazing colorful time capsule. I’m pretty sure it’s my parents’ house’s spirit animal. It even has the same green carpet! Also – let’s make TVs on bar carts a thing. So chic.
An interesting read on the whole first-world conundrum of women being able to “have it all“. Some language used, so be aware if you’re sensitive to it.
A fun and colorful IG account. Super creative!
I am obsessed – OBSESSED – with this whole room reveal, in particular that bold floral Designers Guild wallpaper in the bathroom. YES.
Thanks again for voting for PSS as best decor blog at BHG! Happy weekend, friends —
