Salad niçoise is one of my go-to’s for back porch summer dinners, especially with guests. I like that guests can mix and match–add anything to their salad they like, and leave off stuff they don’t care for. It’s a win win. And now that we’ve finally got back porch weather, bring on those entree salads. WhatContinue reading “cook | niçoise porch life.”
For those of you that know me personally, I’m a Gilmore Girls fan. Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino, the show’s creators, are my heroes. The pop culture references, book references, quick wit, and well -timed and brilliantly curated music selections were, and are, near and dear to me. And so, when the opportunity to makeContinue reading “f.o. | mrs. kim cross stitch”
I’ve been hemming and hawing over floating shelves for my kitchen since I bought and moved in last June. I looked at Ikea and hated the quality–twice. You can see where I’d hang them from most parts of the house and I wanted something sturdy and substantial, something that “shows” and is a piece ofContinue reading “home additions.”
Grabbed these glasses from Easy Tiger. A great addition to our bar cart. It’s Friday. What are your favorite glasses for a nice beer or cocktail?
This past Sunday, I nodded into my favorite antiques shop in Manchester, NH. I love it because the prices are great and the mid century modern selections can be to die for. I got this incredible bookcase there for just $35. This time around, I found this incredible teak hanging shelf in mint condition forContinue reading “hanging.”
Finally, home feels settled. And after years of living in the city without proper outdoor space, I have not one–but two–giant porches. One facing east toward downtown in the back, and one facing west and the world’s best sunsets. The back porch is a great place to enjoy an after work cocktail, or a bookContinue reading “porch life.”
Sean gifted me these amazing bronze piggy book ends last year for Christmas. We finally hung the mid century modern wood shelf my mum found us while she was antiquing. Perfect spot to show off these oinks? I think so.
We call it the hogan at Rozzie. You may remember when I announced the most important project in my life to date: home ownership. Since my purchase, I’ve done quite a few things to get settled; a whole bunch of antiquing, placement and replacement of my many knick knacks, oh, and moved in my guy,Continue reading “home.”
My first housewarming party was small–just my good friend Mack–and a pile of homemade nachos, ceviche, and margaritas. It was the perfect way to show one of my closest chums the new place.
This adorable slanted Danish midcentury modern bookcase I recently found antiquing (for a whopping $30!) is brilliantly residing in my new home’s long hallway. It’s also the perfect place to house my ever-growing Penguin Clothbound Classics collection, which are, in my humble opinion, the most gorgeous book designs. What do I do when this littleContinue reading “mid-century.”
My mum was ferreting around in her basement and inside the old dark room and tool shop room my dad used to use, she found a rusted out utility stool that was clearly left behind by some workers 20 years ago when my parents had their house remodeled. It was in rough shape, having satContinue reading “diy stool.”
This little 2 x 3 cross stitch was perfect for a small frame I recently picked up. You can get the pattern, and loads of other adorable mini patterns, here. It now sits on my dresser, where it belongs, really.
