A beautiful vintage French cottage daybed & why it is major love

I have been doing a bit of treasure hunting lately.

Scouring For Sale posts, thrift stores and roadside sales for vintage treasures and old pieces of furniture that make my heart sing.  
And in between the common pieces and not much so keep moving along to the next one...
 sometimes the vintage fairies sprinkle a bit of pixie dust on you and you find yourself gazing at an absolutely incredible piece that takes your breath away.
So much so...
 that you buy that piece before even seeing it in person.


Weekend View

Happy weekend everyone.


It has been a busy week over here... and crazy hot. 
So what do you do when it gets into the record breaking 100+ temperatures?
You head to the coast.
Where the cooler air and fresh breeze is perfection.
And this week, 
I was excited to be staying in much cooler Sausalito 
for a couple days of fun and work. 

Simple summer berry topped rustic cake

Ahh summer... I love you.
Sunshine filled days, warm evenings out under the stars and get togethers with friends and family.
Which always means lots of laughter and memory making- and desserts.




Yes, I said the 'Dessert' word.
And today I am sharing a simple and sweet rustic cake that is nothing but layers of white cake, creamy buttercream frosting and decadent yet simple topping. And the best part? 
Easy easy easy to make- because I have a little secret.
