One of my favorites, looking good during grow season.
I made this tomato gruyere tart for brunch last Sunday. It could have been elevated by some fresh herbs, like basil, but I didn’t have any on hand. I basically used Martha’s Asparagus Gruyere Tart and just modified my vegetable. I’ve made the asparagus one before and think it was more successful.
There’s nothing like a pitcher of this Spanish delight.
My sister made these killer spicy jalapeno cucumber margaritas on Memorial Day weekend. Burns your lips, so good.
Tending to my vast array of succulents.
Finally. My favorite season: iced coffee season.
Took a stab at “aging” some of my clay pots for that weathered terra cotta look. I used this tutorial from The Curtis Casa, which is actually a pretty unique blog I will now follow.
All you need is a mixture of baking powder and water. However, I wanted some “color” in my aging, and so used some turquoise and green and white paints to achieve the exact look. I didn’t measure anything, but it was just a mixture of all these elements until I thought it was just right.
Tip: used a piece of stiff cardboard to rub off some of the paint and baking soda to create texture.
What do you think? Success?
Painting on a Saturday; trying to age some of my clay pots for a more used “weathered” look.
Nothing like some delicious bourbon and mexican coke. My go to drink.
Found in work, tested out in the art wing. Everyone loves an old, rusty, beat up cycle.
Trying to declutter and reorganize my life. It starts in the living room, and it feels really…good. Decorating tips, anyone? Do I even have a style? I’d like one.
Lace from my dress, in the shadows, walking home from work. Finally, these skies, sunny.
