friday finds: pot + pantry

Brightly colored vintage kitchenware from Pot + Pantry.

Pssst! If you’re in San Francisco, be sure to check out their adorable brick and mortar shop in the Mission.

sessun ss 2011

I love these dreamy shots from Sessun‘s gorgeous spring/summer catalogue. Makes me long for warm weather! It is waay cold in San Francisco this week (compared to normal) and there’s even a chance of snow on Friday night. Crazy!

cocktails at the Orbit Room

I bought this pretty little gold-lip dish (from Up In the Air Somewhere) at the Rare Device re-opening party on Saturday. It’s the perfect size for my favorite earrings.

friday finds: tortoise loves donkey

The teeny tiny succulents and air plants from Tortoise Loves Donkey are just too cute. I want them all!

bali wedding

This just might be the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen. A sunset ceremony on the beach followed by a candlelight dinner on the beach? Swoon! And don’t even get me started on the gorgeous portraits at the infinity pool… Photos by the magnificent Jonas Peterson.

hetterson: how to wear

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!

scenes from {a} weekend

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.

lady grey

Love the angular pieces from Lady Grey jewelry at Totokaelo.

scenes from the weekend

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!

This is pretty much my dream bookshelf. Just so you know.
