This week

NY world's fair globe

Greetings from NYC! I’m here for a few days visiting friends and family and to work on a fun project (details forthcoming!) and Paul and I have been seeing things that I haven’t seen in all my times of visiting and living here. For example, yesterday we attended a Cubs/Mets game out in Queens afterward taking a stroll through the site of the US Open grounds and the former NY World’s Fair of 1964, which included this huge globe, which seems much much larger in person. The site is gorgeous! So many beautiful trees and rad architecture of yesteryear.

I’m gonna keep it short today. So many things to go do/see. What are your recommendations?

This is one gorgeous honeymoon! 

These look delicious!

I always love seeing Natalie’s picks. I want them all.

Such a pretty dress. Perfect for a wedding.

Have a happy 4th of July!

Oh no! I’m already behind on our #PopsicleTheRainbow project, the 8 day Instagram project I’m doing with Trisha Zemp, master popsicle maker. We saved red for July 1st, yesterday, for Canada Day, Trisha’s home country. So, of course, celebrations are in order!

Firecracker ice cream

Firecracker ice cream

Raise your hand if you love the 4th of July?! I’m all about it. The sun, the heat (although this year it’s been a bit much, no?!), the friends, the family, America. Our resident baker ME Hammond came up with this firecracker ice cream to cool you down and celebrate the holiday. What’s the firecracker, you ask? Oh, just a little thing we like to call POP ROCKS! It’s a game changer, folks!

Upcycled lampshade vases

painted lamp vases

I’m so pleased to introduce you to another guest contributor, Therese Wikman, based in Stockholm, Sweden. Therese works as a print designer for H&M and spends her spare time hunting for the next thrift find to upcycle, furniture to paint or any other DIY-project. She sells her curated vintage products on her shop Miss Vintage Valentine. Today, Therese is showing us how to turn old lampshades into vases.
