Snow


This morning started off grey and dreary and then all of a sudden, the air was full of swirling snow. Settling on my hair and shoulders and moving in eddies around me. I love to think of the snow making its way down to Earth, one second there's nothing and the next, you're wiping snowflakes from your eyelashes. Snow, you made my dreary Monday a beautiful one.

But next time you come? Snow me in :)

PS: Is anyone sad about Downton Abbey's episode last night? Those scenes were heartbreaking and I could barely watch. Don't wanna give it away in case you haven't watched yet.

Food

I wanna be snowed in with this olive oil cake from Lingered Upon.

Eggs are deceptive. It seems like it would be easy to cook the perfect egg. Scrambled: I can do no problem, hard-boiled eggs: I own you. But soft-boiled? Not so easy. Ashley at Hither & Thither has just taught me how.

Here I go pushing my coconut fixation on you again, sorry about this, but you'll have to take a look at these lemon coconut bars from Green Kitchen Stories.

 Interior design

Victoria at SF Girl by Bay loves the mid-century butterfly chair. And now, so do I.

I'm (always) in the process of framing photographs to put up in my apartment. And I'm constantly on the hunt for awesome frames. Decorology took the mystery out of framing for me today with this piece on Change of Art.

Fashion/style

Miss Moss does an amazing job matching sweet desserts with sweet fashion. It's the cutest (and most colorful) post ever.

Unruly Things pointed me towards You are My Wild, an incredible weekly photo series of photographers sharing the little details in their children's lives. Inspired to create some of my own series now.

This Little Street is turning 1! To celebrate, she's giving away a $100 Anthropologie gift card. Stand back, people, this one is mine. Go here to enter. (And yes, London sister, you can enter this one too.)


I'm off to North Carolina for work for the next two days. It's in the 60s down there! Wheee!
