Arrangements for the mid-winter mantel, a coveted book on the California landscape, and more things we have our eye on this weekend:
- Michelle is coveting The California Field Atlas, written and illustrated by Obi Kaufmann. As he describes his work: “Map after map pile up in my frenzied quest to peer more deeply into this land’s great, beautiful being. Major highways appeared as ghostly red lines and urban centers became faded red dots beside resplendent green waves of marching forests.” (Take a look at his work on Instagram, too.)
- Meredith is poring over the nature-inspired work of clay artist Phoebe Cummings, now on display through February 5 at the V&A Museum in London (along with 11 other women artists and makers).
- Finally: steps for a more organized kitchen or utility sink, over on The Organized Home.
- Back to veggie-forward basics: how to buy the best lettuce at any grocery store.
- Over on Remodelista: houseplants add to the Southern grandeur in A Fresh Take on the Old South from Workstead.
- This week on Throwback Sunday: a look back at the staghorn fern craze, when a DIY mounted staghorn fern took us an entire weekend to make (with the help of a second set of hands).
- And, in case you missed it: how to help succulents survive winter (and stop the senseless succulent slaughter).
