La La La Love You

Hello! Happy Valentine’s Day! My winter break went a bit longer than anticipated and I’ll post more about what has been going on with me next week (it’s a long personal post that I’m not quite finished with), but I wanted to pop in beforehand and send you all some love and post some beautiful new paintings by my fellow rose lover, Seattle-based artist Jenny Vorwaller. I dream of someday hanging a big night rose garden scene by her talented hands in my home. See more of Jenny’s work HERE. xoxo Jen

P.S. Check out the yummy pistachio meringue and rose water cream cookies I made! They are from this wonderful book. I talked about my minor tweaks in my Instagram post. ♥
