Jessica Scott does it all. A devoted mom and wife who runs her own photography business, the founder of Feast & Dwell still somehow manages to find time to curate her online-based shop of handcrafted home goods.
Scott designed Feast & Dwell, a virtual home-goods hub, to encourage and inspire the welcoming of others into one’s home for both the biggest and smallest of get-togethers. She works tirelessly to empower hosts through the act of gathering others in their own homes.
To celebrate her company’s second anniversary this month, Austin Woman asked Scott to share her five kitchen essentials, each hand-picked by the supermom herself and sold online at feastanddwell.com, to help ring in spring.
Linen windowpane dinner napkins
“Handmade in Boston, these are such a wonderful addition to dinner every day or for something more fancy,” Scott says. “The windowpane pattern is one of my favorites and is the perfect pop of fun for the spring season.”
6-ounce ceramic mug
“These guys are handmade in LA by my friend Rouanne Garcia and are one of my favorite things in the shop,” Scott says. “They are perfect for a cup of your favorite spring tea or a cup of coffee with a friend, not to mention they are great to display in your kitchen.”
Long maple serving board
“This beauty was handmade in Austin by my dad. He designed and handcraft-ed it and it’s perfect for cheeseboards, cookies or for a fun spring centerpiece,” Scott says. “The lighter color of the wood is a great pop for spring. I love to serve cookies on it when people come over for coffee.”
Linen tea towel
“These are handmade by me with fabric sourced from a local Austin shop,” Scott says. “They are a great neutral color to match all your kitchen décor and help with all those spills, messes and dishes.”
Sweet peony candle
“This candle is hand-poured by yours truly and has notes of sweet pea, peony and clover,” Scott says. “It is the perfect mix of floral and fresh, and you will find it burning on my kitchen windowsill all through spring.”
