Vermont modern home and lifestyle.
Operating as usual
Most moms have well equipped kitchens — some with fancy French mandolins, sous vid apparatus, or even a swanky mixer (not me, I don’t bake 🙄.) But here’s the thing.. Even us lesser cooks still love a little re-fresh, right? So here’s a thought: Fill a nice new bowl with some fresh wooden utensils, maybe some pretty new spring linen napkins or upgraded tea towels. A couple gourmet pantry goodies. And then… Boom! 💥 It’s a Mother’s Day win. 😘

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Bacon the dog on West street post. Happy Sunday night everyone. Hope you had an awesome weekend. 💕
About a week ago we did a little live reel in the shop. When you do these things, you never quite know what's going to come out of your mouth. It's unscripted and, well, that's the point. So as we were cruising around I was talking about some lovely lamps. And when I got to this beauty I think I just said: another lamp-y lamp lamp. 😊 So here is your lamp-y mclampface for the day. Also known as the Tinabeth.
It’s Friday! Time to chill out a bit perhaps? We’re all about self care and these CBD-infused bath bliss balls take things to the next level. Each bathing ball contains a natural chakra stone that will reveal itself during the soak. Different scents allow for a varied bathing experience that will tune into and tune up your mood.
Wednesday mood is… mid-afternoon sun on these brass beauties, mid-week mix of calm and busy, pussy willow stems looking good no matter where they land. So Wednesday mood is… good. How about you?
Glass, stoneware, wood. Um, yes please! Loving this collection featuring some of our favorite items, particularly the romantic vibe of it all. Do others mix materials and love it as much as I do.

A spring Sunday. Grey-brown mud season here in Vermont. And it feels like a good day to do some spring cleaning and spring swapping. Pillows. Rattan. Pampas grass. I can practically *feel* the sunshine soon to come through the window. ☀️😎
If this were a painting, I think it might be called "Mood." Calm, dark, and also, well, moody. I love dark colors with a nudge of bright, like a glimpse through a window when the light hits just right.
Um, poet and didn't even know it? 🤪 OMG.
I've been thinking about first jobs, because my sons will be getting them this summer and because, well, I've got a new one. I have a friend whose first job was cleaning a pool at a country club: it was easy but boring, so boring that sometimes they'd throw all the pool chairs in the pool just so they could dive in and pull them out.
What's your best or worst summer job? (And are you hiring? Asking for a friend.)🤣🤣😊😉
See that there? The Daye Octopus? It was one of the first things we sold -- and sold out of. It's awesome but because of the nature of that beast (pun intended), it's been difficult to get more to the shop and online. When I say , I'm not even joking about that, but wow! Out of the blue, we got six more in. We now have two. The universe, man: it operates in strange and awesome ways.
Our Addison West candles are on sale this week, and here's a bonus: once you've melted down the dreamy scent, remove the left over wax and now you've got an AW whiskey glass! Two-fer!
I have felt emotional this week. Today, in a seemingly average moment of product sourcing I came across this and paused again. Creativity and compassion. Feeling the collective humanity. ❤️

Chunky links and house necklaces are two of my favorite things. Structural and bold but also bohemian at the same time. The Modern Marble Links are at the top of my list for an easy decor update -- entryways, living rooms, even the bath.
