Vege Delight via Donna Hay

Started out the New Years with roasted beet salad and goat cheese,
curried brussel sprouts (who knew?)
and a lovely carrot, peanut and green onion sautee.

A full belly to not be ashamed of!

Happy New Year!!!

Vintage Days

Inspired by her grandmother's china collection,
Rachael of Pistachio Press created these lovely
letterpress calendar pages.

I'd love to frame them and wax nostalgic of days with my
grandmothers too.

Browse the months here at Pistachio Press

Man Shops Globe

Went to the super delicious premier of Man Shops Globe last night at Anthropologie. Yummm...

The show reminded me of flea market shopping with my mother when she owned an Antiques business. If want to see what the main buyer/decorator for the store does (and get a good list of global shops for your little moleskine) then check it out on Sundance.

You will never look at an Anthropologie store the same.
