Lovely Things #12

YAY! Lookie! Here’s a new Lovely Things roundup. I don’t see that much of a common thread through it besides muddy rose hues, metallics, shine, and fleurs. I’m so excited about spring. Winter has felt dreadfully long this year for a lot of reasons personal, political, and also with our muddy, somber weather. Here’s to sunshine, birds tweeting, and flowers popping up. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

This lovely art print is how the season feels right now — flowers peeking around the corner.

I’m not usually really into purple, but I’m feelin’ this cute jacket.

Currie always has an amazing selection of ceramics in her shop.

I’ve been thinking about this one time we got all the things at Maurice — need to go back SOON!

I’m glad Elise restocked these lovely Matisse-inspired totes!

Oh, just some sweet pink new school wedge clogs. Love them in black, too!

Oooh la la! I adore this little pink moon wallet and its shiny zipper.

Hello there — you pretty mother of pearl modern signet ring.

This gauze-y top, in its mocha-taupe-lavender-pink hue, looks like a summer staple.

There’s something sweet and very modern Jane Birkin about this top and high-waisted jeans.

A pretty salmon softshine top that gives a big ol’ nod to vintage slips. And it comes in 5 colors!

Yeah. This sculptural dirty blush clutch is a vision with that marble fastener.

Jessica kills it every season and her new spring shoe collection is beautiful.

I’m really into this double-breasted golden metallic jacket. It would be so cute over a dress or with jeans.

A brass snake? A squiggle? Love these lightweight brass earrings!

Two shirts in one! This simple cotton wrap top can tie in back or front.

This whole new collection is beautiful. Shout out to that perfect orange-leaning red shade!

This scarf speaks for itself. Vive La Resistance!

I really want to get my nose on this fancy stromboli candle and my hands on that gorgeous ceramic jar it comes in.

I need a truckload of tulips and daffs, please. Mine are all late to the spring party.

Super Marché

WOW. Victoria’s beautiful shop, Super Marché, is… the bee’s knees… the bomb… just really freaking wonderful. I pretty much want everything. The things I would pass on — it’s really only because I have enough home goods already like them. I even wilted inside upon finding out some of the pretties I wanted are already sold. Super Marché is a gem and it isn’t surprising that it is all so drool-worthy since it’s Victoria who shares her good eye every day on her blog SF Girl By Bay. AND THESE ARE THINGS SHE’S FOUND WHILE SHOPPING FOR ANTIQUES AROUND FRANCE. Sigh. I’ve rounded up my faves below (this is the edited list and it is humongous!), but SM is to the brim with amazingness. I’d love to have this stool, this nude figure, and this, this, this, and these to hang in my home. More HERE.

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. ♥

Happy New Year!

Happiest New Year to you all! I’m so grateful for you joining me here — it means so much to me. Truly. It’s been such a tough year and the next one doesn’t look to be getting any easier with the people in power. I am working on my New Year’s Intentions list to post in the next couple weeks, but my heart is just so thankful for unity and community. Most of us aim to be on the right side of history and knowing that is what keeps hope alive for the triumph of decency and progress. Knowing that there are more good people than bad is a potent energy. Sending you all lots and lots of love. I’m going to keep it light and take some much needed time off in January, but I’ll definitely be popping in for some posts. I hope you make room for some self-care, too! xoxo Jen
