ARTIST SPOTLIGHT :: EMILY FERRETTI

Three pencils

Two things lately have increased my love, appreciation, and endless hunting for new art in my life. First – our hosting of art walks in the studio. When I see talent in my own city, I want to celebrate it and share it! And second, I’ve finally gotten to the point in my loft decorating process where […]

GLAMOROUS IN THE GARDEN

ikea outdoor kitchen set up

In the last three weeks of travel I’ve gone from lounging by the lake in Michigan, to enjoying Manhattan rooftops and city parks, and both have made me realize two things. 1. I’m so happy to be home for a bit. And, 2. Wherever you go, and whatever the size, it’s so important to have a little outdoor space […]

    I love to garden; I find it really meditative although now with the heat and humidity we’re having in Montreal, I find it almost unbearable some days. Looking forward to slightly cooler days so that I can get back out there.

    On another note, the gold garden hose has caught my eye. I might just have to get one.

DULY NOTED :: 7.18

coco-kelley-friday-links-7.18

This has been one of the busiest summers I remember, and I feel like we’re just getting started around here, so this week’s roundups are all very much a reflection of the many places my head has been lately…   1 // Yes, I know. Shoes – how deep. But, it’s wedding season, and I’ve been […]

    The last photo of the plants with the exposed roots has been circling Pinterest like crazy and I have to tell you, I re-pinned it as well, they look awesome. Great selection of things, and no matter how “deep” or not, a good pair of shoes is always nice – and seem to inspire entire outfits so thanks for posting these!

    I just love the Ashley Buzzey items you featured. I might have gone on in ignorance for the next 50 years if you hadn’t flagged them. Thanks, what a great find! And of course, yes, the Gingham is very cool.

A CRAVING FOR (SUMMER) CAMP

grown-up-summer-camp

When I was little, I had a day camp I went to in the hills of Malibu (I know, it sounds like such a charmed life) where we rode horses, practiced archery, and – of course- took part in many craft days. So, the past week of vacation – swimming in lakes, painting rocks, building forts, and […]

    Carefree summer vibes. I too grew up in SoCal so summers were spent outdoors and mostly at the beach. No school, nothing to study, no cares — I don’t think the longing for those days ever really goes away…at least not for me. Thanks for the little toss back to easier times.

    That polaroid camera looks so. fun. If I had to choose one summer splurge, that would be it.

    I grew up with NorCal summers (where the water is a tad colder than it was for Tanya :)) – so this makes me want to grab friends, wood, marshmallows, and head to the beach for a bonfire like I would in high school this time of year. Santa Cruz sweatshirts and Converses were the uniform, and someone would always bring a guitar to sing Jack Johnson songs. :)

    Thanks for a great dose of nostalgia!

      Oh, I had those same days and memories up here too! We had our spot at the closest beach on the lake that was all ours during summer nights in high school! SO fun! Thanks for sharing your own summer memories!
