It was another great week for me. Between gardening and painting, I was a busy girl. Here are my favorite things from life and the internet this week.
There was no lettuce in the refrigerator one morning, so I couldn’t make my typical green salad. I improvised and combined a leftover sweet potato, some cilantro, black beans, tomato, and onion to this yummy bean salad. It’s never fun to fly by the seat of your pants when it comes to lunch making, but it worked out for me on Monday.
A certain kitty I know, was quite happy to jump up on my desk and investigate what was happening. Thankfully, he avoided walking through my paint set with the grace of a cat.
On Sunday I went to Anthropologie with my mom and my sister. Anthro is always great for inspiration. From Left to Right: Cute ceramic mason jars with a chalk spot that I might have to diy for myself. When trying on some dresses to wear to a wedding I’m attending in April I looked around the dressing room only to realize everything I brought in was a shade of red. I figured out this upside down mesh bowl is for protecting food from bugs when dining outdoors, another pretty cool thing to diy. Lastly, I loved the way a blown up photo looked all cut up and arranged on the wall.
My sweet sister is the flower sender in our family. For my mom’s birthday this week, Cass sent her a bouquet she designed. She chose the flowers to match the kitchen. What a thoughtful concept something I never would’ve thought to do.
I’ve discussed my obsession with good reads a bunch already, and I understand if you don’t want another website to check. But I have good news, they’re on pinterest!
Rachel is awesome as is pasta, so this post was doubly so.
I also think Meg is incredible and I loved this post in which she “shows her heart” through a photo, a poem, a song, a quote, an item of clothing, and a place. The quote she chose has become one of my very favorites.
Clare Elsaesser’s paintings are incredible. I especially love the ones featured on frolic.
Dealing with failure is difficult, this post from yes and yes might make it easier.
Ruche did a spotlight on Audrey Hepburn and I love the photos they chose.
A 10- year- old’s opinion on natural healthcare from South of the Fork. This was hysterical. My favorite line is the one about 50 year olds going ahead to die naturally.
LadyT is a really thoughtful. She articulated her thoughts about perspective so well.
This blog combines my love of birds and photography so nicely. I love those Horned Owl chicks.
Lastly, I’m really loving these madewell sandals…
Tomorrow I’m going into the city to have dinner with my parents and my aunt and uncles. It should be super fun because it’s supposed to be a nice day. Other than that, I don’t have much going on this weekend, which is good because I want to do some more painting.
What’s everyone else have planned for the weekend? I hope it’s lovely for all!
