Happy Friday! And Happy Valentine’s Day! Earlier in the week I intended to make this a themed roundeup of Pinterest Picks, but then I sat down to write and totally forgot. Sooo… just pretend all of these relate to the holiday. There are some pink and red things below, so it’s close enough. Let’s get started.
I hate it when I see something I love and want to buy it, but then discover it was a random find at an antique mall somewhere–because we all know that’s code for “you’ll never find one.” LE SIGH. I wanted that gray and red blanket at the foot of the bed. To make it even more devastating, the lucky woman who bought it only paid $35. Sniffle.
Mmmm, curried lentil and kale soup with mushrooms. Doesn’t that make you feel warmer just thinking about it? (Yes. Yes it does.)
Place card holders made out of wine corks! This is happening. For a while my friends and family brought me their old corks because I planned to get crafty with them and never did. That was, like, two years ago and I still have a few bags of them in my office. So, this will take care of at least eight. Baby steps.
I’m in the market for a light-colored blazer to wear in the spring. At first I was thinking tan, but then this black and ivory one showed up and now I don’t know what I want. Maybe I’ll just buy two and then it won’t be an issue. (Boom! Look at those problem-solving skills.)
If I could magically renovate the kitchen at no cost to us, I’d choose these exact finishes. Which should not surprise you. Sometimes white kitchens can look kind of clinical, but the butcher block counter tops and dark hardware really warm this one up. Bonus points for the enamelware on the shelves.
So what are you up to this weekend? We might move some furniture around upstairs and there’s been talk of seeing the Lego movie. As for Valentine’s Day, we’re doing the usual dinner-and-exchanging-of-cards. Anybody else going out tonight? And I know some of you just got slammed with snow–how’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
