Friday!

honey-kennedy-coffee-flowers-and-dorothy-parker

Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to having some good friends from Seattle come stay with us for the weekend. Hopefully the weather will hold up and we can have a nice picnic at the park near our house on Saturday and maybe a little day trip to the falls or the lilac gardens. Have fun! I hope it’s sunny skies where you are.

PHOTOS: 1. I took a little break yesterday just to sit and read in a coffee shop. I feel like I never do that anymore–it was nice. The bag is from the new Tanner Goods collection for ladies that launches Saturday. 2. I picked up some spring blooms from Hilary’s flower shop at Alder & Co. yesterday. LILACS!

Eden’s Savory SAP

honey-kennedy-edens-savory-sap-06

My friend, Eden Batki, is making the yummy new Eden’s Savory SAP organic herbal syrups. I’ve been sipping on her Turmeric Almond Rose mixed with lemon mineral water for the last few weeks and it’s SO GOOD and not too sweet. You can pour her 13 syrups over ice cream, put them in cocktails, drizzle on fruit salads, mix into frosting and baked goods–and about a zillion other ideas. I’ve got my eye on Espresso Tears, Espresso Cardamom Cocoa, Orange Shiso and I’d love to try a fun Mystery concoction. I’m also looking forward to Earl Grey Rose (!!!) and Thyme Grapefruit once they’re available online. More HERE.

If you’re in Los Angeles, you can stop by Otherwild, Shelter Half and Auntie Em’s to pick some up. Check the Eden’s Savory SAP Facebook for tasting updates, too.

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.
