Also, I don't know if you've been experienced the storms of spring like we have, but last night we had a rumbler so intense the very foundation of the house shook, the windows wavered, and the dog cowered like the end times were at hand. Huxley loves thunderstorms and runs around yelling "Ton Er, Ton Er" (his word for thunder). That sight alone makes all the risk of the house getting struck by a random lightening bolt worth it. Well, almost.
Here's a smattering of this's and that's that caught my attention this week:
*The cover of Time is getting lots of attention (personally it seems a bit sensationalistic, but then, I guess that's how you sell magazines!).
*Pretty much loving all of their clothes.
*Pickled beets, I love thee so!
*Loving These Days In French Life (big thanks to Sacha Joy for tipping me off!)
*This summer to-do list sounds about perfect.
*Rhubarb Fool with Cardamom Cream, ya'll!!!
*Check out Camille's giveaway.
*Floating cloud geodesic city!
*Details on the great light bulb phase-out.
*Keeping Chickens is crazy discounted right now!
I've got a post up on Design Sponge today. I'm chatting about making your own signature perfume. It's amazingly easy to do and is a great idea for gift-giving.
Tonight we're headed to a little cocktail party of Jen's house, which should be a blast. Tomorrow will find us in Knoxville for the International Biscuit Festival (I. KNOW!!!). I'll be signing books in front of Union Ave Books at 1 p.m., so be sure to stop by and say "howdy" if you're in the area.
Otherwise, wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*For any new readers, I always post a photo of Huxley on "What I'm Digging" because he's truly what I dig the most. Yesterday, we were chowing down on some Cherry Vanilla Pot Pie left over from a photo shoot. You think he liked it?
