In the Sidebar: January 2015

Time for some introductions! I’ve been taking on a couple of lovely sponsors lately and I wanted to tell you a bit about them. This month, you’ll see:

The Fleeting Day
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Maggie through her beautiful blog, The Fleeting Day, this month. Although I can’t read her Polish words, I love that she writes her posts in both her native tongue and in English. I understand that, as a fellow expat, it’s a way of staying in touch with the place you call home. Maggie lives in Edinburgh, Scotland now and uses her blog to document her travels, though photography and stories. Her goal to “live an intentional, meaningful life” is inspiring and it shows through in her work. Like me, she spent the holidays in New York (though for her, the bustle of NYC). We also both moved to the UK in 2007, both love photography and travel and have both been blogging for more than 10 years! Swing by and read about Maggie’s favourite thing to do in Norway, her thoughts on embracing melancholy, and a sunrise trek to an active volcano in Indonesia.

Sadler Garden Collections
While I was home in December, I got to see what my dad’s been up to with his small business, Sadler Garden Collections. He’s been creating bird feeders, bird houses, planters and all sorts of products since my childhood and he somehow never runs out of new ideas! In the photo below, I caught him polishing off some roofs of a new series of Tivertons and then photographing one of them for his Etsy shop. Some of my favourites are his Tiverton bird house / feeder that looks like Liberty in London, his customisable lawn signs and the classic Gothic Tube Feeder which is one of his best sellers. He’s had 161 sales on Etsy alone so far and every review has been 5 stars. I’ve been taking over some of his social media, so feel free to follow along on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
