crafter, I am still inspired by people who are. That is why this cute project really caught my eye on Design Sponge. I think this cork board is a great alternative to the usual map or globe. Still love our old globe too by the way. As Halligan said in the DS post, she and her husband are desiring to travel this beautiful country of ours. We have the itch to do the same. I really want to go to Dollywood. Alex would oblige considering he knows what a crazy Dolly fan I am. More on that later :)
cute sandals are from the Nine West Vintage America Collection. They are on sale too. Gotta love that. They used to beThese
$69.00 now $39.99. Even better... there is an additional 30% off at checkout. Nice! I think I might be able to swing this one considering my black sandals are on the outs from constant wear.
When I saw this small art collection I had a "Ah-ha moment" as Oprah would say. We have a little corner space just before entering our bedroom that has always seemed like wasted space to me until I spied this. As I have stated before, I am a lover of the little so this is such a great idea and so charming. Next on my list is to find cute white shelves. Should be easy since Ikea is right down the freeway from us. I will have to enlist the hubby to hang. I'm sure that will make him happy. Not really, but he is a team player.
Melissa has been a fan of her CSA pickups from Suzie's Farm for a couple months and has finally convinced me to join too. The night before she left for Costa Rica she had Alex and I over for zucchini risotto and too much wine. The risotto was amazing but it wasn't until we were able to bring home her left over CSA box of zucchini that I was completely sold on joining. For din din the other night we ate salmon and simple sauteed zucchini. Seriously speaking here, it was the BEST we had ever eaten. So today I joined with a bi-weekly pickup trial. I am looking forward to being creative with the box contents. Maybe if things work out I will post some food pics of our CSA journey. Maybe being the key word since my photog skills are
kinda totally lacking. They usually end of looking very undesirable. Wish us luck!
You probably already know that I am always down for a bargain. I was searching online for "southwest, aztec purses" and came along Saddleblanket. I am kinda obsessed now. I just received two amazing bags that both cost me under $24.00. Here are the two that I bought.
With summer here, those words couldn't be more perfect for how I am feeling right now.
I am itching to hit the road with our family and go visit some beautiful people, places,
and things. Maybe get in a little thrifting along the way. Clothes for me, records for Alex!
I was scrolling through my phone photos earlier and realized that I have a bunch of random pics that I love. Since I have nothing better to do on this Friday night I thought I would share some of them with you.
These cute and amazing kids are a reason I might consider having a child.
Might being a very loose word.
I am really happy that it is Friday and for the first time in weeks we don't have any plans. I am just looking forward to relaxing, getting some things done around the house, and hanging with our little family. Simply. Here are some pretty stunning pictures that I stumbled across today. I love the color! They are taken by Matthias Heiderich. These photos inspire me to take that photo class I have been putting off signing up for. You can check out more of his photos on his flickr.
They are for outdoor and indoor use since they have a built in moisture barrier. I would love to get some for my little balcony/patio redo. Since they are made from recycled materials, what a better way to make your greenery even greener!

Tomorrow I am attending my friend Colleen's mumu party. She has themed parties a couple times a year. They are a reason for us ladies to get together and act goofy while consuming cocktails. I wish I had this mumu from designer Ossie Clark's spring/summer 2009 collection to sport at the festivities. A less sheer version preferably. I love the jacket too. Have a great weekend! xo
It was hard to decide what to order because everything looked so yummy!
Some things were already sold out so it made the choice a bit easier.
were waiting for our food. Can you see the hunger pains on our faces?
I got the spicy pork tacos with picked red onion and cilantro. I love anything
picked or spicy so these were a must try. Alex opted for the Bahn Mi with
lemongrass chicken. I had a bite of that and it was pretty tasty too! I can't
wait to hunt Miho down again and try some of their other options.
It was super nice to meet up and have a little lunch on the grass with my man!
