Full Source List: Cabin dining room. Every Decor Item & Furniture Piece in Our PNW Cabin Eclectic Scandinavian Inspired decor

I’m not fully finished decorating the dining room of our PNW cabin yet, however I can’t quite put my finger on what else it needs! Because of this, I’m embracing the idea of slow design and letting it play out with small changes along the way. Right now, the balance feels really good to me, so I wanted to share a resource list similar to this one I did for our living room in case you’re curious about where anything has come from. Once my new site launches, we’re going to have an entire section dedicated to the cabin and where you can shop to get the look! Until then, I hope you find this recap helpful. Now, onto the details of our cabin dining room and why I chose these pieces!

How We Stay Prepared for Emergencies at the Cabin (Our Entire Kit!)

How We Stay Prepared for Emergencies at the Cabin (Our Entire Kit!): first aid kit, pet first aid kit, winter emergency supplies, and more!

As an accident-prone person who now lives in the middle of nowhere, we’ve had a steep learning curve when it comes to being prepared for emergencies and disasters. Throughout all of our various misadventures this past winter, I learned a LOT very quickly about what we needed to have on hand at all times. I’m often asked for recommendations, so today I wanted to share a comprehensive list of our emergency and disaster preparedness kit. I’d love additional recommendations, too, so please don’t be shy about leaving a comment! Also, sorry if this seems like a really random blog post… it’s basically the culmination of a LOT of questions I get asked on Instagram. I wanted to get the information all in one place where I can easily update it and share!

Monthly Life Update, May 2021

Dappled sunlight on a vintage patchwork quilt, lazy summer afternoon picnic with a kindle, magazines, rosé, sunscreen and more. A quick life update about my health, our cabin, our pets, my business, and more.

I find it really funny that this time last year it felt like time was slowwwwly dragging along, whereas now, in 2021, May was literally a blip on my radar. In between renovating the cabin, gearing up for summer, Sean’s birthday, and starting to welcome our first house guests, May was very full for us. Here’s a bit more about what’s been going on behind-the-scenes!

5 Plants That Keep Away the Bugs for a (Mostly) Bug-Free Backyard

These 5 plants that keep away the bugs are garden essentials — not only because they are beautiful but because bugs (like mosquitos) hate them! Including marigolds, alliums, lavender, rosemary, and lemongrass for natural bug repellent

We’ve had a few days in the 80s here in the mountains and it’s getting me SO excited for hanging outdoors this summer. But I know that with summer comes mosquitos… and I’m totally one of those people who gets eaten alive all summer long. I’ve started to also plan garden beds, which means I’ve been researching options for plants that keep away the bugs, too. While I know nothing will keep bugs away forever (and that some bugs are beneficial), I would still like to keep them at bay a bit. There are so many plant varieties out there that do this, but here are my top picks. I’d love to know your faves, too!
