We spent most of the weekend resting up and relaxing. We cleaned and cooked and crafted. I’ll share more details on the blog this week. I think I’m very slowly learning how to use my camera. I’ve been shooting in manual now for about six months, but I’ve been lazy. Yesterday I finally decided to study up, pay attention, and actually learn how my camera works. I’ll be sharing my eureka moments (which all you photographers will probably think of as duh moments) here on the blog soon.
*I broke out my glitter toms over the weekend. It’s amazing how a little sparkle can lighten your step.
*I found this awesome copper tray at Target over the weekend, and it fits our ottoman perfectly. I’m very pleased with myself.
*I made donuts yesterday using my dad’s recipe, and they literally only took 10 minutes to make. The recipe will be up on the blog on Wednesday. so easy.
*Almond Brittle. It’s seriously my new favorite thing. It’s from the best ice cream shop in SF — Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous. They make their own ice cream, cookies and brittle in house. SF friends, it’s worth a trip to the dogpatch.
*I love how all of the flowers are blooming around us. The orange flowers above bloom in our backyard every year in March and April, and they always remind me so much of our wedding colors.
*These plants were a birthday gift, and I’m really trying to keep them alive. They bring so much life to our little dining room. I sure love green, but I missed the green thumb gene.
*We picked up those little red bud vases a few months ago at Crate and Barrel, and I love them. They’re like buddies.
*While over at a friend’s house (can’t remember whose), I saw a wine bottle coaster. The kind where you can set your open bottle of wine. So I saw the coaster, and I had the classic DIY thought that I don’t usually get. I thought, I could make that! So I did. The DIY is coming at you on Wednesday.
Have a splendid Monday-
