An outtake from a recent photo shoot for an as yet unannounced work-related project. Mmm... it includes my own recipe for a Blueberry Blackberry Free Form Pie. Oh, yes. Stay tuned for more details and maybe the recipe!
One :: One trip to the thrift store and I snapped up this set of six cups in my favorite shade of aqua blue. Delish!
Two :: Two weeks away and zero dead plants! That's right, our house plants survived the first trip of the summer (much thanks to my little sister who watered them for us). I really love the gray crocks mixed with the white milk glass. All containers were found at thrift stores, flea markets or estate sales.
Three :: After three years here I finally found the right rug for the living room.
It took all my strength not to write Valentime's Day up there in the title. I've had this clip from 30 Rock running through my head all morning. And I love it because Mark keeps correcting me when I say it. Just knowing that my mispronouncing the word is even the slightest bit irritating to him really makes my day. Ahh, love.
When it comes to keeping my house plants alive and well I'm trying to turn over a new leaf (both literally and figuratively). This orchid loves living in my office and I love that I haven't caused it any harm.
Happy 2011 everyone! Here's a shot of my current inspiration board:
So, did I tell you that for the past year my office/studio has been in our front sunroom? Mark suggested that I relocate to this space and I love it! I was so worried that I would have to move back into the dining room for the Winter because for the past two years we've sealed off this space. It was so drafty! First, I would shut the french doors separating it from the living room and then I'd stuff and squeeze wool fabric (dark brown to match the woodwork thank you) into the cracks to stop the whoosh of frigid air. But not this year. No siree. I took the advice of a few friends and spent an entire evening (nine windows worth) using the window film and voila! Mark and I could hardly believe the difference. It is so pleasant and I get to use my office 365 days a year. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
