With all the hoopla of my travel to Maine and releasing our Collections last week, I’m not sure I quite got to celebrate getting 3191 Quarterly Issue No. 7 out into the world. So, it’s fun to spend a little time looking at outtakes this week. I love this issue. It holds some great memories and experiences, and I am very happy to share it with you.

I have come to really love the recurring features At Home and our Deep look back at the past season. I shoot the photos for these sections on film when the mood strikes, and they feel really personal and spontaneous. I love the serendipity of how they pair with MAV’s photos as well.

When MAV visited earlier this spring, I was often cooking and making while she took the photos, but I did manage to snap this photo on film after we polished off brunch. You’ll find my recipe for the aebleskivers (Danish pancake balls) that once filled that plate in the issue.

I *heart* sandwiches. I share a few of my favorites in Issue No. 7. I call the one shown here “The Hippie”.

My daughter fell in love with San Francisco earlier this year. I share a little scrapbook of our visit in Q7. Here she is in my talented sister, Lisa Congdon‘s, amazing studio (many more photos of that inspiring space in the issue). Lucky girl, she is headed back for two weeks this summer to attend art camp and live the artist’s life with my sister and her partner.

Finally, I am pretty passionate about making stuff, and it is always fun to share simple projects with you. In 3191Q7, you’ll find instructions for making baskets from vines you can find in your own yard or neighborhood. I have these little baskets to hold found treasures all over my home.

I hope you enjoy the issue!
