Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 18.10.21

I SEEM TO HAVE become fond of Esty once again, after not really finding anything there for years, and then, all of a sudden, ordering handmade soaps and avocado oil face creams, art and photo frames and even gold jewellery. There is also a soft hand-knit mohair sweater from Greece currently in my cart, as well as a beautiful wicker chandelier, and a small oil painting. It does feel infinitely more intimate than Amazon, and with the exception of the long wooden matches from Latvia, everything arrives nearly as quickly. This weekend was spent taking time off from work and screens, finishing a novel and doing some writing, leisurely reading the paper over coffee on Sunday morning and going for a late, moonlit walk in the evening. It was nice to slow things down a little, especially since things always get a little hectic this time of year. P got two new cookbooks and we’ve been eating all sorts of wonderful meals this past week, and already, around the village, it feels like soon there will be a festive mood in air, for once November hits, every here seems to go into full holiday mode. Noticed some of you were already looking for holiday inspiration in the TIG archives lately…

This week’s links include wool blazers and suede heeled boots for autumn days; Cédric Grolet’s new London pâtisserie; the rewilding of the Scottish Highlands, and much, much more.
