my new favorite book
Thank you, Amy Butler, for being such an inspiration. This weekend, her newest book, Midwest Modern, was delivered to my home. I waited five patient days, and it was well worth it. Butler's style is so very close to my own, and her husband and she are just too cool for school. They were recently featured in the (dear-departed) Blueprint magazine, and their home is just as I thought it would be. This book is really emblematic of her work as well as her lifestyle. Flipping through it, I felt the urge to ride through a field of daisies on a horse and then retire on a hillside with a cup of tea.
