Happy Friday, my lovelies! Look, more of my origami garland! Going to be a bit shorter with my list this week because I'm just PLUMB TIRED. And so befuddled that I locked myself out of my car at a parent organization meeting at my kiddo's school. That was embarrassing. I think next year for Mother's Day, I might make the request that I'd like to spend the entire day in bed watching movies. The only time I ever do that even a little is when I'm sick and then I'm usually too sick to enjoy the process. I'm going to start convincing the family (and the dog) that this should be a thing every couple of months. Bed Days! Speaking of Mother's Day, once again, I'm going to make the complaint that I have no idea what to get my mother and my mom-in-law. Neither one is that fond of tea or jam. That's a problem.
Here's what I managed to scrabble together this week:
Lovely ideas in this post.
This is the only thing I asked for as a Mother's Day present.
I must have this book!
Would you like to try a framble?
I'll always have a place in my heart for Shabby Chic.
Coming-of-age stories for girls. (thanks Allison!)
Saveur's best rhubarb recipes.

Cool Book of the Week: 'Steeped: Recipes Infused with Tea' by Annalies Zijderveld is a beauty and after my success with my jasmine tea cookies, I really want to make more things with tea. Like, sweet tea jelly, green tea coconut rice and chai pumpkin bread. If you're struggling with a gift for Mother's Day, you might want to think of this one if you have a tea loving mom! I've seen this in person and it's really gorgeous and has amazing looking recipes.
