The weekend, briefly

It was an overly busy weekend, but we managed to make some time for the little things.

Like freshly picked sweet peas. Perfect for burying your face in.

And admiring my mom's glass collection (entirely thrifted).


Doing a bit of thrifting myself.


Trying to get the little terrier to cooperate with the camera (she has avocado blossoms all over her fur).

Not pictured - driving (lots), making lists, TAXES, more driving (in traffic).


  1. Sweet peas are my favourie flower! So fragrant and pretty. I love your doggy shots so much!

  2. i get overly excited with Circe makes appearances. she just gets cuter each time!

  3. I agree, Circe is amazing!! The first photo is so beautiful, as are all of your thrift shop finds. Every time I go thrifting I think of you for inspiration -- you always find the greatest things! xox

  4. love the thrifting and the deep purples

  5. Oh, for the love of sweet peas. Really, there are few flowers I would rather bury my face in. And an avocado blossomed-Circe is a pretty fabulous concept for a painting, mes non?

    Also, hats off to you for you for getting going on your taxes this weekend. Boo-hiss for me for me for NOT doing taxes this weekend. D*S did a helpful tutorial for small-business owners here, if you're in the market for advice (which I certainly am):

  6. loooove the sweet peas. <3 gorgeous.

  7. I'm pretty convinced dog's don't look at the camera on purpose. Bailey stares at me and the minute the camera comes out, it's like she doesn't know who I am.

  8. Your sweet peas are GORGEOUS! :o) You're absolutely right -- I do want to bury my face in the petals (I thought I caught myself inching closer to the computer monitor -- alas, I pulled back before I embarrassed myself).

  9. the color on those sweetpeas is deafening (it's so good it's synaesthetic!). lovely work thrifting as well! it's entirely fitting that an enamel bracelet in that gorgeous shade of turquoise made its way to your jewelry pile - i've associated that color with you since you showed us your salt and pepper shakers.

  10. what a beautiful glass collection.

    we also did lots of taxes & driving this weekend. taxes = no fun :[

  11. This post reminds me that I am in need of thrifting!!!
    That glass collection is lovely and so are your recent finds!!!

  12. Gorgeous post. I love how thrifty you are.

    p.s. Don't forget to enter my Peruvian Feather Earring GIVEAWAY!!!!


  13. The sweet peas are a fantastic purple. I love them. Oh and your pooch is especially cute :)I found your blog from cupcakes and cashmere. I am new to the blogging world, but very excited about it!
