here's looking at me kid

I am more than slightly obsessed. I have a bunch of vintage craft books with pretty patterns that I want to try! Also...I am majorly on the lookout for awesome pieces while thrifting.

Bossypants is sooooo funny. I loved Tina Fey before but now I like her even more. Hilarious. I am only part way through but I highly recommend this book!

2. This Now We're Cooking Print
I love it! So cute for a kitchen.

1. Cherries
I have been eating so many cherries lately! Definitely a summer time favourite.

Tonight Ivan and I are going up to visit family and see the house that my dad grew up in! I am really excited and I can't wait to take some photos of it!

What are you up to today?



  1. I can't wait to read Bossypants! I don't know what's holding me back, haha.
    Today is all about hanging out with my bestie Sarah who is visiting from Minnesota. We'll be enjoying the great weather in the park and going to an improv comedy show tonight. Should be fun!

  2. Bossypants is on my list to read! I can't wait to get started on it. I feel like I a slightly obsessed with crewel work as well. I want to put some up in my house!! Do you have a book on how to make your own?

  3. Love these favorites. I'm definitely checking out the blog thing.. sounds really interesting! I'm still not sure WHAT I'm doing today other than working in the yard and giving the mutt a bath. :P Sea Marie

  4. i still have to read that tina fey book!

  5. Bossy Pants was hilarious! I read it while in the hospital, and it totally took my mind off everything. Love her!

  6. Everything about this post if right up my alley. I live right on the outskirts of Amish country, so I find some amazing crewel and embroidered pieces constantly.

    And I ate a bag of cherries the other day. In one sitting. By myself.
    And I'm okay with that.

  7. <3 <3 Thank you!

    I never knew it was called Crewel! I love the look of it

    i've been snacking on lots of cherries lately, too. they are perfect this time of year. yum!

  9. I just finished Bossypants and loved it! Tina Fey is so smart and sassy... my hero.

  10. I LOVE that kitchen print. So cute! And crewel work is some of my favorite. It's so cute, pretty, etc. ^_^

  11. Hi!

    I really LOVE cherries <3! but the sad part is that i live in Mexico and here cheries are very expensive so i cant eat them that often): instead I eat bananas, i cut them in round shape and paint them red and think that im eating cheries... (jaja what a bad joke...sorry)

    Love your blog and your hair!

    Hope you´re having a lovely day full of inspiration and cherries(;

  15. I always wanted to try crewel work but I feel like I'll go into craft overload.
