Scenes from my Week

Kangaroo selfie {I mean!}

This week will forever be remembered as the one in which I snuggled a baby lynx (and took a selfie with a kangaroo). And let’s be honest for a second – it doesn’t get much better than that. My sweet animal-obsessed cousin had one wish for her birthday: to turn her backyard into a veritable zoo. So that’s just what happened. And I can tell you with certainty that birthday’s from here on out have a whole lot to live up to. Trying to narrow down my 400+ animal photos proved to be difficult, but in an effort to reel it in, here’s a super quick peek (plus a few from the rest of the week to boot!)

ps – I’m headed to my cottage next week and will be taking a mini blog break as well. I’m trying my hand at this whole unplugging thing. Let’s see how it goes! I will likely still pop in on Instagram, if you feel like following along: @larkandlinen.

Strawberry Lavender Jam

Strawberry lavender jam recipe

Strawberries are abundant at grocery stores and farmer’s markets far and wide these days, and I’ve admittedly been soaking in the berry-glory as much as physically possible. They can be found atop my ice cream, tucked into my morning smoothie, or straight from the basket – really, no berry is safe in my presence. I recently stocked up on a massive batch from the market, and whipped up some strawberry lavender jam to take us through winter. I had some leftover edible lavender from my lavender honey ice cream recipe, so I tossed that in too on a whim and was pleasantly surprised with the results. It’s subtly floral, perfectly sweet, and tastes particularly delicious slathered on warm homemade bread.

12 of my Favourite Artists on Etsy

amazing artists on etsy

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time pulling together the finishing touches on a few of my client projects, which in turn makes me feel like I’ve become somewhat of an Etsy connoisseur. While I love perusing the shops and stops in and around Toronto, with a little (okay a lot of) digging, I’m always amazed at the unusual goodies you can find on Etsy for a steal. I’ve recently stumbled across a ton of really beautiful artists, and thought I’d share a few of my favourites. Art is so subjective, but if you ask me, here are 12 of some of the best artists on Etsy.
