Weekend Reading 3.7.21

I’ve been traveling vicariously through Scotland watching the travel show “Men in Kilts” because I’ve never visited (and always wanted to) and I like those two actors from “Outlander”. I would love to see more actors do travel shows featuring their birth countries. How about Oscar Isaac showing off Guatemala, and Pedro Pascal spotlighting the best of Chile. Priyanka Chopra highlighting the culture of India? Who else would you suggest?

Renovation on the fixer is underway, I picked up some tile and flooring samples yesterday and I’m pulling together the kitchen design plan this week. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the materials to arrive to start the installations. I have some new fabrics I’m releasing on Spoonflower too, those new prints are coming soon! Meanwhile…
