I am also loving the cover of their new catalog. It makes me want to be there, wherever she is. Just standing, watching the water, thinking about nothing.
Enjoy your weekend!

Urban Outfitters just added a ton of new stuff, with two of my favorites being the barnacle vase and the pennant bedding.

I found this vintage pattern at a local antique store. I think the dress in the middle will be perfect for a little summer dress.

It is peony time over at Trader Joe’s. Reason 147298473 that I love TJ’s.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy going to work every morning. But my new coffee mug is really going to help cure those Monday morning blues. I mean, who can’t be happy with a coffee mug that is the color of sunshine and has pennants all over it?! Buy yours here. (And no, this is not a sponsored post. I randomly saw this and looked at Bryan and said “Ooooooh I reeeaaally want this.”)

I’ve said it before… I love a gorgeous wedding dress paired with a pretty sweater. It adds the perfect pop! of color.

I am in love with this centerpiece by succulentLOVE. And the cake doesn’t look too bad either!

(Bryan hates it when I use the word dude. I say, you try living in San Clemente for 15 years and not having it be a part of your vocabulary. I reserve it for times like these.)
Dude. I made bread, people. Bread! It didn’t come out as perfect in shape and texture as the pictures from the recipe, but Bryan finished off one loaf with dinner and almost snuck the other one in bed with him. I am going to say it was a success. The recipe was pretty easy to follow, all you need is time (I stayed home sick today which meant I got to watch Friends while the dough rested.)

I have been in need of a pin cushion and I could not bring myself to buy one of the red tomatoes. I know they are a classic, and they do the job, and if you have one, great, but I just couldn’t have one of those sitting on my sewing table. This has led me to almost 6 months of going without because I couldn’t find on I liked, and couldn’t decide what kind to make. Finally I settled on Martha’s heirloom tomato pattern from this book, but I put my own twist on it. And by twist I mean green patterned fabric and a purple felt heart in the middle. It is a little lopsided and could have used a bit more stuffing, but it will do the job. And it doesn’t remind me of a vegetable.
