Drooling over: The cinder block planter bar and dining room transformation at Design*Sponge are swoon-worthy! I am gathering design ideas by the minute and these are total keepers!
Elsie’s delicious ways to mix up an Arnold Palmer over at A Beautiful Mess are brilliant! I love all kinds of tea, especially black tea.
Watching: Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Poker After Dark. We don’t watch shows live so we are catching up on our queue. This can be challenging with soooo many spoiler posts on the twits and fb.
Excited about: Our new rental house! We will be leaving the Greenlake/Ravenna area and moving 10 mins away to the Ballard/Phinney Ridge area of Seattle. While we will miss our favorite places like Atlantic Crossing, Pies & Pints, Cafe Racer and Latona Pub, we are stoked to try out some new bars and eateries within walking distance of the new house.
Also, my little sister is currently in Italy for a six week art program. I am super excited that she is able to have this experience with her friends. Traveling overseas does change a person a little bit, in a good way of course. I love that she’s the only one in the photo not sketching and just taking it all in.
Eating & Drinking: We have been eating our greens, as we normally do but they are from Michael’s garden! So far we have lettuce and spinach! It’s crazy how something that comes from your own backyard can taste way better than store bought produce.
I have been drinking lots of green tea lately. Even though it’s June, the weather in Seattle is a bit chilly (it was warmer in April!). Once the outside temp warms up, I will get on the iced tea bandwagon.
