Lovely Things #7

Hello! YAY! Another Lovely Things post comes together. I’m clearly feeling pretty summery over here and I feel like a lot of these things would be nice wedding gifts or birthday gifts for Cancers and Leos. My birthday is coming up and I’m trying to resist the melancholy, but I suppose that’s probably futile. I’m pushing it back by being really enamored with what people are making right now and having fun doing deep dives into handmade magic rabbit holes. I hope you like my finds, too! See MORE LOVELY THINGS. ♥

Stone fruit is coming, so I’m thinking about this Peach Maple Soda recipe.

Cavalcade!

It’s been a while (again) since I did one of these mega Cavalcade! posts. With taking time off last week to take care of Zelda–I’ve got a backlog of lovely things and not enough time in the day. So, here are some things I’ve been admiring lately. There’s not really a theme per se, but it looks cohesive through my rosy goggles. Maybe a “blush silk Morocco quartz crystal diamond whiskey jetsetter magical rays” kind of theme? I dunno–that’s all I got.

I love this old photo of model, Jean Shrimpton. Such great style–those bags!
honey-kennedy-jean-shrimpton

This print from Liam Stevens is fantastic–love his work.

Cavalcade!

I haven’t done one of these big posts in a while, so I thought I’d share the mountain of things I’ve been admiring lately. I’m not sure I really see a strong theme coming through in this Cavalcade! post… maybe just the colors and some muted geometric shapes–if that makes sense. They seem less bold and contrasted in these pieces. Anyway–here are a bunch of beauties for you to peruse! I hope you enjoy them, too.

This magical photo of pigeons on a Brooklyn rooftop is by Gina Vasquez.
