La Maison Boheme Has Moved!

10 years ago, I began blogging at La Maison Boheme. Initially the blog served as an online dream journal where I could catalog my favorite design ideas and inspirations. La Maison Boheme quickly became a community where I met bloggers, designers, and people who would help me develop and more fully embody my personal aesthetic.

Now the blog has transformed into a more personal place where I share my art process, my thoughts on parenting a special needs child, and other topics of interest like gardening, radical homemaking, minimalism, social justice, literature, and travel.

The time has come for me to consolidate my online spaces, which is why I'm leaving the Blogspot platform. The content will be the same, but from now on, La Maison Boheme will continue via my website at www.sarahgreenman.com/blog. And of course you can always find it (as you did before) at www.maisonboheme.com.

Thank you, dear readers, for sticking with me through the past decade! And cheers to a new home for La Maison Boheme! The party continues...

Cottage Green

I don't have a cottage, 
but I sure do love these moss, sage and kelly greens cottage colors.

Postcards from Eastern Oregon

I'm soaking up every beautiful day in far Eastern Oregon at my Mama's home. The Wallowa-Whitman mountain range, the Snake River, Eagle Creek, Pine Valley, Oxbow, Brownlee... this place is heaven on earth.

Remember to Play

I happened upon this lovely video by Michelle Housel and McKenzie Elizabeth Ditter about dolls and dollhouse making. The video, which accompanies a recent article in Taproot Magazine, depicts a step-by-step process for making a hand-crafted dollhouse from boxes, found objects, clay and paint. It's a great reminder that play is not only reserved for kiddos, but important for all ages.

Foraged Morels

One of my favorite things about visiting my mother's farm in Eastern Oregon is that her neighbors are always dropping by with fresh veggies from their garden or eggs from their coop. Today's surprise was a grocery bag full of foraged Morel Mushrooms. For a city dweller like me, who will easily drop 8 bucks for 5 morels at the Whole Foods, this was a miracle. Tonight, I'll be cooking up a mushroom feast for my family. And I'll probably do something like THIS. Thank you Oregon. Thank you neighbors. Thank you nature!

Home in Oregon Again

Some places are magical because of the curvature of the land, the quality of light, and the verdant energy inherent in the soil. And some places are magical because it's inhabitants. My Mama's home is both. My family and I are staying at my Mama's farm in Eastern Oregon for a month. It's a heavenly place and I love what happens to my brain and my body out here. I slow down. I notice things. I breathe deeper. And I feel truly "home". Here are three snapshots from my first day. And yes, that is a double rainbow at the end of my mother's driveway. A sign? I think so.
