Summer Meal

Last weekend I got really into making a fresh meal. I had a recipe from a magazine which was basically a new take on potato salad. Sliced red potatoes, corn, feta, tomatoes and basil with a balsamic dressing. Then I also made a homemade green iced tea with mint leaves, also from our herb garden. I must say it was pretty delicious.

A little Diebenkorn

Just felt like sharing a great little piece by R. Diebenkorn that I love. Bad reproduction but something is better than nothing right?

Plants and Trinkets

I've been a bit distracted by summer recently to post but I have been taking some photos of our plants as they grow and some of my new trinkets and changes around our place:

Finally got some of our art up on the wall and this amazing starburst clock from my parents was an early birthday gift.

Little glasses from Alex's mom that catch the sun on our window sill.

An old door stop from Sue that keeps our bedroom door open to get a breeze.

Our tomato plant out our bedroom door (2 tomatoes so far!)

An arrangement of greens from my cousin's garden in my grandmom's crystal. It's lasted forever and I have started adding some herbs and leaves from my own garden.

Succulents from my good friend Leah's wedding last summer, they're still going strong after the long haul back from California.

We got some string lights to hang across the back. I've got to get a picture of them twinkling at night.

Marianna Sztyma

I discovered this artist through theconstantgatherer blog (great blog check it out) and fell in love. Her table scapes especially make me very happy. Check out more at her website...
