This weekend I finished building these kitchen shelves. We used pine and I will coat it with an Eco-friendly lacquer this next weekend to protect the wood and maintain its color. There is a sense of satisfaction from building something with your own two hands that money could never buy. I also didn’t realize how much fun a circular saw could be: the screeching noise, the sawdust flying around, the smell of heated metal and woodchips…I think I’m addicted!

While driving from Tennessee to Colorado, we came upon the heels of an ice storm that had just passed through Oklahoma and made the area into a ghost town. Gas stations were frozen shut, cars stuck to the road, and the sun had just broken through the fast-moving clouds to make the whole world feel as though it were made of diamonds. The playfulness between light and stillness was amazing.
