The little floral painting came home with me. Can you spot it?
I have been wanting to make these cookies for so long, and finally got around to it this weekend. I added vanilla to the white dough and espresso to the brown dough, which gave the cookies just a bit of oompf.
They were perfect for a little tea time.
This was a really solid set of five. My favorite was The Underground Railroad but they were each fascinating in their own way.
Summer is over, which means I had to go out by revisiting my absolute favorite tomato tart. I know the mustard sounds weird, but it makes the dish. The tart works best with the sweet juicy tomatoes abundant at the markets in August, but honestly, standard grocery store fare works too.
We took a long weekend trip to the Smoky Mountains, a place I haven’t been since I was a kid. We rented the most adorable cabin, which was perfect for drinking wine and watching fireflies at night.
My favorite was the Glass Hotel. Beautiful prose, and enough twists that I didn’t want to put it down.
i have been feeling very eh about everything, especially my wardrobe, so i went to my old stand by billy reid. i haven’t bought anything there in years, but found some gems to bring home. the fabrics are so lovely and feel wonderful on.
