What's that? You'd like to see some pics from my exciting weekend?* Oh, well what a coincidence, I happen to have some right here. Check it - Windsor and Churn - part old-school ice cream shop, part perfect day-drinking destination. $5 Bloody Mary bar, pitchers of beer and Pimms, and some of the best mac and cheese this side of the Mississippi. A bold statement, considering how much I love me some mac and cheese (see disclaimer below). Add to this a 75 degree sunny day and life is good. Oh, and the decor? Yeah, that's pretty rad, too. Why yes, that is an entire wall made of OLD CASSETTE TAPES. What? Yeah. That just happened.
*Exciting weekends these days consist of meals I get to eat not standing up in my kitchen. Also not from a box. Not that there's anything wrong with meals from a box. Especially if they come fully loaded with powdered cheese. Mmmm, fake cheese.
On this fabulous Friday, I thought I'd share my latest fabulous addition from Michelle Armas. I love the colors in this piece, and how it fits perfectly on the tiny wall outside our bedroom. And the little bits of gold satisfy my craving for a little shimmer while keeping it from being all Studio 54. Even though secretly I'd be fine with that, too.
I'm having a secret love affair with color. What the what?? I know. Not craaaazy color, but interesting ways it can be incorporated with my long-time beau: white. I love how this apartment pulls it off with unique pieces and textures, and I am flat out OBSESSED with that nursery. Makes me feel like I did all the right things with the painting in my own kid's room. Or at least a little less freaked out that I could be causing him seizures.

Peeps, I just realized that I don't have anything for "daddy" from "baby" and I got all sweaty. I know, I know, I don't NEED to do anything (for this holiday I've never found to be a big deal) but what can I say. I'm a sappy wreck these days and just want to. Soooo, I'm thinking something heartfelt and handmade is in order. (The horror.) Here are some of my faves this year!
