Thank you for so beautifully featuring our farmhouse Cottage Hill Magazine. It was an honor to be a part of the grace issue, read more here!

“Authentic. We wanted the house to have real materials – wood window and doors, marble countertops, and handmade items throughout. Our favorite element in the house is the artisan zellige tiles in our kitchen.

Hardworking. The finishes needed to be easy to clean; spaces need to be functional. We wanted what was utilitarian over what was trending. This helped when we decided about a powder room. Builders and house plans typically have a powder room, but this important quality we wanted in our house made us question the need. So, we took it out.

Warm. The house needed to be comfortable, open, and inviting. To offset the white and gray, we made sure to have warm elements of wood and a huge fireplace.

Intentional. Everything must have a place and purpose. When designing the kitchen, we created two rooms on each side for dish storage and pantry. It didn’t make sense to us to have the fridge separate from the rest of the pantry and having to open and close tons of cabinets for dishes.”

Feelings of love and joy in having such amazing friends to help bring a vision of my new site and letterpress to life! The inspiration started with a gorgeous antique botanical print of “Clary Sage” I fell in love with. Miya from Layers of Loveless illustrations are visually stunning and there is so much artistry in her work. Together we created this hand drawn font incorporating Clary Sage. The lovely Megan with Ruby the Fox designed letterpress and Stacey from Steracle Press crafted these final beauties.

Snow Day

And citrus frosted cinnamon rolls roasted over the fire.

Waking up to an orange sun and a blanket of snow is a welcome guest while we wait patiently for spring. The winters are long so we’ve made an art of staying in, building a morning fire, and finding fun ways to cook over an open flame. Our favorite is roasting cinnamon rolls which turn perfectly caramelized and gooey like the best part of the cinnamon roll, the middle. The secret is adding a little orange zest to the icing for dipping. Enjoy a morning at our farmhouse and the recipe below for fire roasted cinnamon rolls with citrus icing below.

Fire Roasted Citrus Cinnamon Rolls

1 package of cinnamon rolls

the zest of 2 oranges

skewers for roasting

small bowl to mix icing and zest

Open the cinnamon rolls (our favorite but any will do great) and place the icing in a small bowl. Mix the zest and icing until smooth. For your cinnamon rolls cut them into around 8 inch stripes for roasting. Small rolls may not need to be cut. Wrap the roll around skewer using the prongs and roast each side for 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool and cover with orange icing. This recipe is also amazing for camping or enjoying at a bonfire.

After zesting the oranges you can make citrus juice. We love mixing 5 or 6 squeezed oranges with a cup of pineapple juice for sweetness but any juice mix you love is perfect. It’s a nice break from hot chocolate and makes you excited for warmer days. But the best is using the rids to make the house smell amazing. Throw those in the fire to release all the oils. xx
