Links and photos and happy weekend!



If you're heading into the weekend with a cold (we're having a flu epidemic in NY!), check out this post on Design Sponge about beating the common cold and treating yourself well. I know at least one friend who could use this.

And if you're well/lucky enough to potter around your kitchen then consider these tips from The Kitchn on the 10 things that will keep you happier in your kitchen.

Food

I'm roasting a chicken for our Sunday dinner so I liked Maxwell's Viking chicken on Apartment Therapy, it's really nothing new except that Maxwell tosses fruit in with the veggies in the roasting pan and that sounds like fun to me.

This simple salad of fennel, apple, and gruyere from Ashley at Not Without Salt would be gorgeous served with the roast chicken above.

Tell Heather at Sprinkle Bakes what your favorite cookie is and be entered to win a cute Kate Spade clutch.


This weekend is for starting Homeland and catching up with my sister visiting from London. Oh and then I'll kick everyone out the door on Sunday night in time to watch the season 2 premiere of Girls! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.

  3. Great links, perfect for some Sunday evening reading :) I love the pictures especially the ones with the sun shining, they make me feel warm despite the cold here in Sweden. Hope you have a lovely weekend. /Niki

  4. That Design*Sponge link is great; thank you! I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog. I discovered it a couple weeks ago (I think when looking for some recipe?), and I could get lost in all the links, in a good way. I spent quite awhile on your Pinterest last night reblogging various recipes and the like. I look forward to discovering more things through your blog in the future!

  5. Great instagrams! The one with the sun shining through the gate reminds me of "The Secret Garden". So pretty. I didn't catch the season 2 premiere but LOVED season 1. The characters are all so funny and just feel like people I've actually met before. I'm catching up on American Horror Story season 2 right now and man, that is a show that is hard to stop watching. It sucked up both my evenings this weekend!

    1. thanks Eva, it reminded me of James and the Giant Peach for some reason, the house sits on a huge hill and with those crooked gates, i always think of the evil aunts living there. Oooh, i don't watch American Horror Story - I can't take on another show!
