Loving...

This cozy (but still simple and minimal) book and game filled room in an upstate NY vacation home. Pretty much exactly how I'd want the living room to look in my fantasy vacation house. (image by tim street-porter via metropolitan home)



This thrifed dollhouse via fine little day. It's sort of like a giant multi-room diorama. I'm going to ask Bryan to build one for Audrey and me to trick out with little found treasures and wallpaper and fabric scraps as our summer project.


Green tea ice cream -- I have to have a bowl every single day. I'm officially addicted.


Duet Letterpress... I love her letterpress work + her equally excellent blog, especially the gorgeous pics of her recent Paris vacation.


Caris Reid's work (still!) If you're lucky enough to live near Columbus, Ohio be sure to check out her show.


Melissa's gorgeous pottery... especially this little egg vase.

I love, love, love the first room in your post. It is serene and so well edited. Interesting placements of the art in the room.

I had a good laugh at the pic of the doll house with the nest and paper people hanging out with Bambi.

Green Tea ice cream. Have you tried it at Tei Tei's on Henderson... pure goodness. Not in a scary shade of green either.

Glad for the update on the art show.

Love the textural simplicity of the egg vase.

mb -- i've tried tei tei's ...it's good! we love that place.

the dollhouse is a hoot, no?

Vivi said...

Dollhouses tend to creep me out, but I am spared from that feeling when looking at your dollhouse due to the presence of that green haired toy! Thanks for breaking the spell!

Amanda Nicole said...

Ooo, the vase is so cute! And I totally know what you mean about the green tea ice cream. It is truly one of the most refreshing things to have in the summer.

Joslyn said...

My little lady wants a doll house for her birthday, so fun.

The Hip Homemaker said...

That dollhouse is a nice basic shape so it should be pretty easy to make. I can't wait for my bean to get big enough to be excited about stuff like this! I loved anything tiny when I was a kid (who am I kidding? I still do). good luck!
