Friday!

Happy Friday! And hopefully a happy long weekend to everyone in the U.S. for the 4th of July. We have a couple of days before we have more fun houseguests coming and I am going to be doing some snoozing, sketching, garden planning and iced everything drinking. Every year on the 4th of July we end up sitting in bed eating pho from Luc Lac, watching movies and trying to keep our very scared, Xanax-ed dog as comfy and calm as possible from 8pm to 2am. I can’t remember the last time we got to watch pretty fireworks, but Zelda is better than any explosions in the sky. Have a good weekend! I hope you all get to do some lazing and hanging with loved ones. Happy 4th! xo Jen

Monday!

honey-kennedy-pola-negri-beach

Hello! It was my birthday this past Friday and I didn’t get a chance to post, so I decided to do a Friday! post on a Monday. For my birthday, I bought myself more rose plants (shocker!), had brunch with a couple good friends, a manicure/pedicure with our niece and a mellow hang in the backyard. We extended the fun the day after by going to the ocean. It was so fun to spend the day on the Oregon coast with our niece, jumping in the waves and enjoying the whole stretch of beach. Of course, the news Friday that everyone in this country can now marry who they love was the happiest part. It’s a beautiful thing and makes all unions more meaningful when we can all choose to participate. It has taken far too long to get here. I hope this means we can move more quickly through narrow-mindedness and bigotry and get on the right track so everyone can have the happiest life possible — it goes by so quickly. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK, FRIENDS! xo Jen

Rose Petal Ice Cubes

I LOVE roses for their beauty, scent and flavor, so I was excited to see this DIY Rose Petal Ice Cubes tutorial using Cardinal de Richelieu garden roses. I just need to figure out if my garden roses are safe to use. I imagine they’re probably fine because I don’t think the plants were ever grown with pesticides. A rose with smaller blooms than I currently grow would be easier to use to make this work, so I might try it with dried rosebuds and petals first. I also love that the classic sturdy steel ice cube trays are still available and that you can even get an ice cube tray stand to conserve space and hold up to three trays. These trays would be a nice gift for a classic cocktail enthusiast or anyone who loves those little vintage details. This Rose Petal Honey recipe looks great too! Rose everything, please.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-stripes-beach-robe-conical-straw-hat-capri-summer-1954-emilio-pucci

Happy Friday! I feel crazy because this weekend is the last we have to get our house ready for a steady stream of visitors starting this Monday and running through until late July. Also, this is the last weekend before temps in Portland skyrocket to almost 100 next week. WHAT!? So much to do. Aaaaand next Friday is my birthday and I still don’t have anything special planned. It’s crazy how we push those things to the side more and more as we get older. I’d like to change that proclivity — even just a little bit. I hope you’re planning fun for yourself this weekend and the weeks ahead! xo Jen

Carpenter’s Daughter

I’ve loved the Carpenter’s Daughter aprons for a while and now I’m loving their camera straps as well — and the photography by amazing Shantanu Starick. I love that their designs are beautiful, well-constructed, utilitarian and fun all at once. The wonderful leather and canvas works are by Camille Moir-Smith — a designer, graphic designer and interiors stylist based in Melbourne. It’s so sweet that her work is inspired by hanging out in her dad’s workshop as a child — even without knowing more than that, it just makes sense. Carpenter’s Daughter has a lovely instagram feed and hosts nice interviews. More HERE.
