let's paint the walls!

It's been quite some time since I posted things on this blog. The world, as well as mine has changed so much since I started to post things to keep an archive that I was unable to loose. This random thunderstorm-y thursday will mark my attempt to get back into posting things that I find interesting and want to be able to access easily. 

Mum will have things to read and I will have a place to pop back into from time to time to call upon those sparks of inspiration that make this lovely life, lovely.

Carl - I love you so

Carl Kleiner has been rocking it as usual with some beautiful abstract paper photographs. They never disappoint and always inspire me. It's not what you have, it's what you make of it.

Cutting Boards

My friend Jon told me a while back, that cutting boards are the new stocked bookshelf. They speak to a person's passion about enjoying food and life. I thought the comment was quite sweet as I have an addiction to those beautiful, useful boards. They act as serving trays, plates, prep areas and are just beautiful to look at, to me that is.

I came across this shot and it made me think that my dream kitchen isn't so much about the fancy appliances, the size or really the location of it. It's about well used beautiful objects that have been put to work on memorable meals shared with loved ones, and this lighting certainly doesn't hurt!

Soon I will be off to Copenhagen to celebrate love and lifelong friendship, but first a few peeks from an amazing weekend in Aspen. Food and Wine is my official favorite magazine and Stephanie Izard can do no wrong in my book.

Back from Paris!

Before I start to tuck in and post some of the amazing food & wine that was had in Paris, I thought I would share my morning garden and dessert. Yogurt, Strawberries, Pistachios, Flax Seed, Fraise Jam and Fresh Mint. Duralex makes my favorite glasses in a small size, so I will pick some up for the office and start to bring my American portions more in line with the European ones I have been enjoying.
