bar cart by taylor donsker

another wonder from mr. taylor donsker
my friend said it best when i shared these photos with him this morning
this is great for 2 reasons
1.) that taylor designed and built it and he's awesome
2.) a reminder that friday is somewhere on the horizon

cheers to that!

wood slab furniture by taylor donsker design

i am one proud, proud girlfriend
taylor has been hard at work designing and hand crafting a wood slab desk and dining table
for one of his clients 
i dont know why, but every time i see one of his finished pieces
im amazed
he is self taught, and i can't wrap my brain around his talent
how someone can be so creative and see the world how he sees it

here are some beautiful pictures of his wood slab desk
its made from claro walnut and was salvaged from someone's front yard in the bay area
its one of a kind and to be honest, the pictures don't compare to how amazing this looks in person
its smooth, solid and the streaks in the wood are incredible

he has a gift!

russian tea cakes

 as i was taking a shower today
i was randomly thinking about russian tea cakes
and being thats its sunday, and i usually always bake something on sundays
i thought why not make 'em?

they're not perfectly round, but they're just as good
no matter what shape they are!
