nothing to worry about

the new peter bjorn and john album is out on tuesday...get excited with their "nothing to worry about" video!!!

ferns, ferns, ferns!

on friday, being so beautiful and finally feeling a bit like spring, i decided to do a little indoor gardening. i've had an available vintage bullet planter that i got from brimfield last fall that was waiting for some love. i picked up three varieties of ferns, a staghorn, alligator and some cute little curly one. i love the way it turned out and it brings such life to the room! i'm looking forward to planting our garden...warm up weather!

st.germain elderflower

i love beer. good beer. but i am more recently a girl who loves drinking cocktails-- delicious ones! my two most favorite drinks, the grapefruit gimlet of the independent and the boheiman of green st are drinks that sum me up as a individual- sweet, but not too sweet, a bit of tart and sass and says it like it is, straight up! and what these two drinks share in common besides gin and grapefruit is the magnificent st.germain elderflower liquor. so i went and bought some and am trying desperately to recreate this amazing concoction.

image and video from

ever since i watched "the green" show on the sundance channel, i've been wanting one of these lovely pieces by scrapile. the founders of scrapile are two friends who collect, design and build furniture out of scrap wood. it amazes how beautiful the things we throw away can be; i plan on being more mindful in my own disposal.


i've always loved this artist's beautiful work... katherine dejarnette babin creates unique jewelry out of found and natural objects--everything from vintage lockets, fabrics, and even wood. i've always loved her "grow" necklace. check out her shop here.
