Craftsman and Wolves

I’ve been drooling over the Craftsman and Wolves pastry case online via their instagram feed. The craquelin bread with rose, violet and orange flowers in the first image is what first caught my eye and now I can’t stop thinking about eating at their San Francisco patisserie in the Mission. I’m thinking of ordering some of their housemade Matcha Milk Jam and other treats until I can spend a day eating at their lovely spot. Those shortbread cookies with the edible flowers! Everything.

Floral Ice Cubes

Seeing the Art in the Age post about floral ice cubes in one of their lovely Rhubarb Tea cocktail recipes made me so excited about sunny days ahead. In the warmer months, I love to make pitchers of strange summer beverages like apple cider vinegar, lemonade, lavender and spearmint cold brew tea with ice cubes with berries. I love the idea of using edible flowers — they look so pretty in the cubes, but I think they’d be wonderful in spheres as well, like these round ice molds or these. If you need a list of nice, edible fleurs — I was just thinking about the lovely edible flowers post that Ashley English did for Design Sponge a few years back. You can also use berries, melons, lavender and other herbs!

Meus

I love this amazing, new to me shop, Meus. There are so many lovely little things that make sweet gifts for yourself or loved ones. Mirachelle carries wonderful designers, like Claire Ginn ceramics, jewels from Seaworthy and Melissa De La Fuente, Cainnon hand-carved combs, clothing from Pippa Romana and Ace & Jig, dishes and ring cones from Bailey Doesn’t Bark, leather goods from All Hands, canvas bags by Nicole Vannucchi and a lot more. I was also so happy to see my favorite whipped seashore honey sold by the jar and in an amazing little gift box with beautiful ceramics, tea, linen and a serving board — such a sweet idea! Here are some of my faves below. More HERE.
