  9. This DIY has my name all over it.
  10. Whoa. Sometimes I’d like to wake up to a cup of Green Eye.

    The Container Store is dangerous for me, too. I have more stuff than space to put it…and somehow I always think if it’s in cute containers, that’ll be better. Meh, not really. lol

    And your photography class…nice!

    Love your Friday lists and I’m looking forward to a fun weekend 🙂

  • Kelley Larson

    Oh man the Container Store is a danger zone for me to!

    Cats + Boxes +’s made my day

    I love photos of abandoned places. There is something so beautiful and intriguing about them. If you have time you should google abandoned houses in Detroit. There are some amazingly beautiful photographs out there. Also, I would love to take your food styling class….hopefully you’ll do one in southern california one day :).

  • Jenny (VintageSugarcube)

    Come to San Diego and teach a photography class! I could round up the troops:)

  • Jojo

    I’ve super loved all your posts this week! And I especially love ‘I love lists, Friday’. It’s genuinely a highlight of my week! I wish I lived in the US to come to a photo class by you! Also, the video this week totally nearly made me cry. Your parent and child relationship is the absolute cutest. Cooper is so incredible. As are you. And I’m sure Casey is. 😀

    Totes may your biggest fan,
    Jojo xxx

    I love that the title of that spoon video is How to Open a Can Like a BOSS! Funny yet amazing.

    Cooper and you in the video = **sigh** SO GREAT! The opening a can with a spoon- the can said Pears not Peaches. Haha.
