The teeny tiny succulents and air plants from Tortoise Loves Donkey are just too cute. I want them all!
Have you been following Hannah’s How To Wear series on Hetterson? She sent the striped crenelle sweater from her spring/summer collection to a few of her favorite “sartorially inclined” bloggers to see how they would style it. Isn’t that a grand idea? I wonder who (and which piece) will be featured next!
A great weekend of celebrating (birthdays and last days at old jobs), good food, new friends, and a long walk to soak up the last of the warm sunny weather (the forecast for the next week is cold and rainy, boo). But I have no pictures of all that, whoops. We got a bunch of film developed this weekend, so I’ll share a few photos from when my parents were visiting last August and we hit all the touristy hot-spots.
Pictures are of stunning redwoods at Muir Woods, awesome tile pattern at the Embarcadero Center, Cowgirl Creamery at the Ferry Building, pretty garage flowers on/near Lombard Street, and the view of downtown from Coit Tower.
Saturday morning I was up early for errands and happened upon an Estate sale at St. Joseph’s Church. They were selling some pretty incredible things (pew benches! organs! stained glass windows!) but I only made out with some miscellaneous glassware. The church has been boarded up for years but the interior is still beautiful, despite decay. After errands, the glorious weather demanded a bike ride and a late lunch at Outerlands. The open-faced pastrami sandwich was AMAZING.
The rest of the day was spent painting the living room, as I finally committed to a color. Our living room doesn’t get a ton of natural light, so even though I loved the medium grays I ultimately decided on Sherwin Williams Grayish (2nd swatch down in the fourth photo). And I couldn’t be happier with the result! But now I have no excuse for not hanging artwork on the walls…
Sunday was spent relaxing and enjoying the weather before making bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers and running off to a Superbowl party. (For the poppers: mix softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese, smear inside jalapeno halves, wrap with 1/3 slice of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.) Hope your weekend was wonderful!
