I had intended on beginning my break next week but...life. I (like so many) am in need of a break. I’m taking some time to rest...like all of the rest y’all.

I’ll be back on January 28 with some functional home decor items to remind us all to do just that. Kick your feet up, lean into the corner of you sofa, grab a blanket, light a candle, and just rest. I hope you give yourself a lil time to rest too. See y’all soon!

There was an article written about JBurgess Designs in the Devil’s Strip💗💗💗

When Jessica Skinner was a little girl, she and her brother would take family trips down to sunny Pensacola, Florida to visit their grandparents. Her grandfather, whom she called “Papa,” was a farmer who would work magic turning raw materials into functional structures that lit a creative fuse in Jessica.

Her company, JBurgess Designs, is named after her grandfather, who would build dog houses, barns and fencing from ordinary pieces of wood. The summers visiting her grandparents and observing her Papa’s ability to transform raw materials into beautiful, functional structures left an impression and helped inspire her vision to start her own furniture design company.

“The overall goal is to help people be able to make their home be a beautiful space, visually and intangibly,” Jessica says.

Here’s a close up of one of the bowls that’s available now at www.jburgessdesigns.com. This one reminds me of spring time. Late spring. When oodles of things have begun to grow but nothing is quite in full bloom. When novice gardeners (like myself) who have planted seeds start to seed life peek through the soil. That’s my favorite time of year. It’s my forever reminder that whatever seed we plant, comes up and bears fruit from such a tiny beginning. Same is true in our lives. It’s my forever reminder to plant good seed in me, in my home, and where ever I go. We reap what we sow. Seeds never lie.

Today I’m holding space for both joy and grief. Joy because I get to be home enjoying my kids. Their laughs and giggles. Their songs and dance moves. My daughter and husband’s “omelet off” this morning. While also grieving along side so many families who have lost loved ones this year. For those whose faces won’t appear in the family zoom calls. Praying those who need to grieve allow themselves to do so today....while also praying for joy...so much joy💗💗💗

Ok I lied twice in this video but I have a one and done method in regards to recording videos 🤷🏽‍♀️. Lie number one...a lot of people did not ask me if this could be a table top it was actually 4🤣 but maybe I more of you were thinking of asking me. Second lie...I said I was going to video tape the table but by the time I put the legs on and turned it over I decided pics would be best sooooooo enjoy! (In the next post). 😊 It’ll be posted on the website tomorrow at 2pm.

The legs are made of raw steel by @hairpinlegs.com_cbus!
