Finch 2

Recently received my copy of Mr. Finch’s new book, Living in a Fairy Tale World, with preface by ME! Beautifully photographed by Finch himself, this retrospective of the artist’s work in stitch is simply breathtaking. Very honored to have played a small part in this stunning publication.

beach twine knits by Marnie Campbell, photo by Justine Hand, basket and finished hot padsFor years Marnie’s knits have been the best kept secret in Orleans, MA. So happy to share them with the rest of the world on Remodelista today. Here are some more “behind the scenes” shots from our day of gathering weathered marine twine for Marnie’s “salty knits”. For more see Pot Holders Knit from Ocean-Tossed Twine.

Solvi's room by Justine Hand, yellow bear Rearranged Solvi’s room at the cottage this summer to reflect her status as a “big girl.” Love the light in this space. And the curved ceiling. Such a sunny, cozy spot for adventures of the imagination.

calligraphy, colonial style

dipping the quill

While on a recent trip to Colonial Williamsburg (see Williamsburg in the 21st Century: An Insider’s Guide), I purchased some feather quills, natural inks, and handmade paper books for the children to write in. Last night while I made dinner, Oliver decided to give old fashion illustration a try. I’m not sure which is more charming, the pictures of the process or the actual drawings themselves.

Justine-Hand-Cape-Cod-cottage-Matthew-Williams-Remodelista-7B

As many of you know, our Cape Cod cottage was featured in Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home. Today, the sublime blog featured even more images and outtakes from the book, as part of their cottage week. Here are some of my favorites by New Zealand photographer Matthew Williams. See Remodelista for more.

Solvi's grass posie 2

I think this is the second (or is it the third?) time I’ve entitled a post about Solvi thus. She’s always watching, always taking in.

Yesterday Solvi picked the sweetest posie featuring, of course, grass. Excellent, expressive, delicate swaths of it. To these sweeping tendrils she added what for a six-year-old girl is the most restrained application of color: one purple spear of Veronica and a single pink phlox. She also selected, as an integral part of her arrangement, the accompanying rock. “You need to put this by the vase, Mom.”

See, chip off the ole block.
