i was reading Jillian's Shop Girl Tour on decor8 a while ago. i have always been attracted to old schools and industrial buildings that have been repurposed into living spaces and studios, retail shops and retreats.
i decided to check out Jillian's blog to see if there were other similar spaces she may have featured.
i got totally side tracked by her gorgeous food photography and recipes that i soon forgot why i had clicked over in the first place. but quickly came up with a new reason to stay.
i paused at this cookie recipe and with a recently acquired bag of dried figs i had everything on hand to start baking.
a warm + quiet evening, i propped the back door open to let a slight breeze inside to counter the heat from the oven and at the same time to savor the last of the day's light.
simplest days are the best days.
FYI: these freeze really well + are rather enjoyable eaten cold...
