the smitten studio office space.


peanut butter cup pancakes.  i know i can’t help but, almost always, share sweet recipes.  they are the ones that look most enticing to me.  pancakes + peanut butter cups? why shouldn’t they go together?  and, vegan + gluten free to boot.


this quote has to be read a few times.  oohed over and then read again.  coming undone precedes growth.


this new family photo of the royal family.  pretty perfect, right?  i just cut my hair (as in yesterday) and now kate has me wanting to grow it out again!


the grand budapest hotel.  i must have been living under a rock because how did i not know a new wes anderson movie was coming out?  the colors were absolutely fantastical.  i mean look at that pink ombre hotel pictured above!   i can’t wait to see it again to just to really take in all of the amazing art direction!

indoor / outdoor living.  i think it would be pretty amazing to live in a home where you could just basically open up a wall.  i’m loving everything about this home which is featured in the book The Inspired Home Nests of Creatives (on my wish list).  click read more to see the room with the track door up (sigh).

beautiful things quote

this quote from walter mitty, ” beautiful things don’t  ask for attention.”  this was the line i wish i would have written down when watching the movie.  i couldn’t quite remember the line exactly but i couldn’t get away from remembering the idea . . .  and then, look cocorrina created this beautiful desktop image and it found it or it found me.  i love this thought so much, and i couldn’t agree more.  true beauty doesn’t look for attention.


this photograph.  what do you see when you look at it?  i wonder who is really living.  the ones being watched below or the ones who took the ride?

wildley raw

the wildley raw instagram feed.  kelly is kirsten’s cousin and i dream of eating healthy when i spy her feed.  i also secretly wish that she could ship me food everyday.  this is an insta must follow.  who are you loving on instagram these days?


mr. selfridge.  anyone else watching.  i’m a total pbs nerd.  and, don’t tell anyone, but so is mr. lovely.  he may be wearing camo but he’ll watch pbs with me.

dining area

this dining space in a small kitchen (loving  the whole house, really).

seeds in ice cream cone

growing seeds in ice cream cones.  spring + summer = love.


this girl in these overalls.  you guys, i have a very vivid memory of wearing overalls with a striped shirt under them (thank you gap, circa 1997).  i was in belgium for a very long layover, where i had my first chocolate croissant and for some strange reason had my hair washed and blow dried (before dry bar was probably even an idea).  i’m not sure why i chose to do that except maybe i had been in africa for 10 days or maybe i thought it would be super cool to get my hair done in europe?  i suppose i’ll never know the why, but the memory is all kinds of crystal clear. i just wish i would have looked as cool as this girl.


banana bread brie and chocolate grilled cheese.  ummm this is so wrong it has to be right.
