scenes from the weekend

We had a nice weekend, a good mix of being social and laziness and getting shit done. Friday we met at Latin American Club for birthday drinks for Nolan’s coworker/friend. A few too many (for both of us) meant a quiet Saturday at home, nursing our hangovers with a large greasy brunch and watching movies. It rained on and off all day, so we didn’t feel too bad about taking a lazy day. Sunday was for baking (Challah) and running errands… I got the West Elm striped sheets I’ve had my eye on (on sale, woot!) and painting supplies, because Nolan is on board with painting the living room grey! Now we just need to decide on the exact color… We wrapped up the weekend with a phenomenal dinner at Front Porch. It was hands down the best Southern food we’ve had out here, and I can’t wait to get back to try their brunch. Hope your weekend was lovely!

friday finds: luna & curious

Lovely little curiosities from Luna & Curious… I’m crazy for that feather necklace!


The spring/summer 2011 lookbook from knitwear label Primoeza is one of the best I’ve seen. Beautiful products shot beautifully. Love.

Mom, if you’re reading, don’t worry, I always wear a helmet! Just not for the picture.

It seems almost unfair how nice the weather has been in San Francisco this week, considering many of you are dealing with below-freezing temperatures. Not that I’m trying to rub it in, just mentioning it as it motivated a bike shopping trip this weekend. The bike I’ve been riding I’ve had since I was 14 (it’s a tad small and has definitely seen better days), so for Christmas Nolan gave me an IOU to pick myself out a new bike! So this weekend we did some research, stopped in a few bike shops, and did test rides before choosing this beautiful blue Linus roadster sport. I was so excited that I took it for a spin through Golden Gate Park just before sunset, and it was glorious. So that was the big highlight of my weekend! Hope yours was swell.

I’ve been helping my friend Lauren with her bakery/catering business and this weekend we had a big delivery to the Moscone Center for the Fancy Food Fair. Lauren was commissioned to do 900 cakepops and seven fondant display cakes for Gartner Studios’ line of Duff products (yes, that Duff!). I of course forgot my camera, but snapped a picture on my phone while I was sitting in the back of the car with all the cakes. Hilarious, right? I hope to have a picture of the whole display to share with you tomorrow!

The rest of the weekend was spent working on an order for a wedding – how cute are those custom bride and groom toppers? – and spending some quality time with the hubs over brunch, a trip to Amoeba Music for some new records, and watching season one of Damages. (How did I not know about this show sooner? It it SO GOOD.) Hope your weekend was lovely!


Noticing a bit of a trend in my bookmarks lately…

1. Wasabi tape gift wrap by Essimar; 2. The trails rucksack from Dusen Dusen; 3. Made by Hank geometric tote; 4. Studio Fludd wooden pins.
