Happy Weekend

Vogue, August 1958

Oh what a lovely day it is outside today! I can't help but be in a good mood. It's Friday, my mom and grandfather joined me for lunch, and I had a heaping ice cream cone.  Did you know calories don't count if you are eating in the sunshine?  Yes, it's true. ;)
Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends! Got any fun plans? For once I don't, but I don't mind. Looking forward to doing a bit of reading and writing and tending to my deck garden. If it's warm enough, I may even  go for a swim. I'm glad it's that season again.

Anyway, here are some things I enjoyed around the web this week:

+ Blooming Monogram. This is such a cool DIY. Add flowers to your life even if you don't have a green thumb.

+ This weekend marks the official start of summer and the official start of camping season (in my book anyway) which means it's time again for my favorite summer dessert...S'MORES! Unfortunately my family will be kicking things off from the comfort of our home instead of around a campfire like last year. But to keep in the spirit, I'm going to make these pretzel s'mores anyway.

+ A thing of immense beauty: macro shots of a fiery-throated hummingbird. And just plain cute: this bunny.

+ The world's smallest hotel. Copenhagen, you are too cute. (via dwell)

+ Speaking of real estate, check out these random renovated places New Yorkers live. I think it would be so cool to live in an old storefront. (via New York Mag)

+ "Know How" by Kings of Convenience

Take it easy today...xx


  1. Wonderful song (as usual), awesome renovations, and sorry you're not camping this weekend. I wish we were too!
    P.S. Why is the "prove you're not a robot" thing back?

    1. thanks m'dear. the comment verification is back because of the obscene amount of spam comments I was beginning to get. :(
