It's Friday! Is it just me or did this week fly by? Lots of exciting stuff has happened this week. First, I launched my new line of pencils. They are truly a labor of love, so it was awesome to see them received so well by you all! So thanks for that!! Last night was spent at First Thursday for some live music and a beer or two. We were lucky to snag one of the very few bistro tables that are part of the park. Afterward, we stopped by our favorite sushi place to grab some sushi to go and a six pack of IPA to celebrate IPA day. (Yes, I realize we are beer nerds.) Tonight we head to Oriole Park for another O's game. Baseball and live music are seriously the best things about summer! With Friday here, I figured it was time to share a few things that I've been loving lately.
You may already know I'm a sucker for turquoise, and this necklace from The Bauble Dept is one that I could definitely see myself wearing.
What are some items that you've been loving lately? Any big plans for the weekend? I think this is the first weekend that we have nothing on the calendar and can do whatever we please! Happy weekend everyone! :)
I took last Friday off from blogging with the holiday weekend in mind, but I've collected quite a few things that I've been wanting to share with you all. After a busy week, rounding up a few of my favorites seems like a good way to wind down.
This recycled mail notebook is pretty fantastic. Not only is it completely made with recycled mail, but it also gets shipped to you as if it is the package! I want someone to send me one of these! Seriously!
Yesterday for the first time in the six years that I have lived in Baltimore, I went to the basement for a tornado warning. As a Hoosier native that was born and bred in tornado alley, I decided that clearly things with the weather were not so hot when I glanced out the glass-paned door in my studio to see a sky that had turned black and green. Forget tornado warnings. Sometimes they don't predict the right thing. And sometimes they come after the fact when it is too late (like the time a tornado touched down literally three houses down from my childhood home). But when that sky is green, that's my warning. (I also often half joke that if it sounds like a freight train is about to come through your living room, then that's a good sign you should head to the basement. That sort of happened in the situation of that last little side note I made.)
This morning is a different story. Lazy, gray wisps of clouds are dissipating to show peeks of blue. It makes for a good Friday morning. Not hot enough yet that the buzz of the air conditioning units in our alley have taken over the peaceful morning. And promising of better weather for tonight's baseball game. So, what better to do than round up a few things I've been browsing upon while sipping my morning's iced coffee.
My sister has some pretty amazing recent adds to her shop, StarSeventeen. I recently favorited this hat. The colors are just fabulous! And I've commissioned her to paint a super awesome hat for me. I'll be sure to share it once it's all done!
Any plans for you this weekend? We're heading to the O's game tonight. For Saturday and Sunday I see some bike rides in our future, plus some painting. Yup, big basement project is underway. Will have to update you all soon!
