We fell in love with our weird blue wall + other weekend things.



Over the weekend, we made too many plans and got in over our heads. 
We were indecisive and spent way too many hours at Home Depot mulling over pieces of wood. 

We remembered our mothers and made mandu from scratch. 
Then realized making the skin, too, from scratch was just a bad idea. 

We also made jangjorim, artichoke dip and guacamole. 
Our kitchen was a happy place to be in. 

We sanded, painted & stained. 
The wood we turned into shelves had little imperfections that made them perfect. 
Our neglected frames of pictures and art prints finally found a new home. 
And we fell in love with our weird blue wall. 

Little knit pieces had their ends weaved in and found themselves inside little packages ready to be mailed. 

The weekend was a crazy one. 
But we need a little crazy from time to time. 

I hope your weekends were a little crazy, too. Crazy and comforting.

    1. oh i was very misleading huh. i only made about 10 skins. it was just too much work and they weren't coming out as thin as i wanted. so i did buy a package of skins just in case this would backfire (oh how i know myself so well - lol)

  6. We made dumplings this weekend as well. Have never attempted to make the skins from scratch though. I find the pre-made skins a little thick sometimes.

    1. thanks nicole. we went back and forth with the shelving. first floating shelves but we realized how expensive they were going to be just to make and i have these tendencies where i want to rearrange and taking the floating shelf apart seemed like a nightmare so we just went with shelves with the L-shaped mount. i was worried they wouldn't look nice but i like how they came out! :) happy thanksgiving week to you!

  15. this is great. I love that you had a "crazy" weekend. You're right...a little craze provides a good mix-up.
    Yummy food memories are great like that. I often remember my mom in the kitchen making some of my favorite Shanghainese dishes. What I would give to have some now.
    xo,
