Welcome to the weekend view.
It has been a week full of weird weather, photoshoots and lots of autumn colors.
This week was full getting ready for a photo shoot with my Balsam Hill family.
It was an outdoor shoot- with several areas for catalog and digital shoots on the agenda. And I got to see some brand new pieces that will be available soon- that are absolutely incredible. Cannot wait to share them.
A few behind the scenes sneaks:
What it looks like on camera:
And what it looks like further back:
Ladders, ‘leaves’ pumpkins and lots of photography tools- not to mention furniture and other pieces used for other photos. So much fun.
I am so behind over here on some of the spring stylings I was going to share… and so, I am moving onto summer.
I started to snap some photography for a few bedroom changes this week- and yes, that little ‘Pea’ decided she wanted in on the photos. Ever since the book- she has decided she kind of likes to be the center of attention. I will share more about why next week. 🙂
It is kind of self explanatory… but yes, I am loving the peonies that are in the house right now. Some that are full of rich decadent color and some that are barely blushing. I love them all.
And these are part of 2 special projects I am working on right now which means I am doing more than just enjoying their blooms- which are literally the size of a hand they are so.big.
Walnuts & Cauliflower
An interesting twist on ‘sloppy joe’s’… when you are vegetarian- some of those recipes aren’t the easiest to make. Of course, you can use meat replacements- but sometimes- you want to try something new.
My husband decided to try making sloppy joes with walnuts and cauliflower last week. And they were incredible. As a side note: Know that using walnuts is actually not a totally crazy idea- we enjoyed some amazing vegan food in New Orleans that was made with walnut protein a couple years ago- and have seen it popping up here and there. They may look interesting… but they are actually good. I am thinking the man needs to write a vegetarian cookbook all about creating recipes people love in a healthier way. haha.
Something for You
I am working away on something new for you. Something to do with celebrating something, giving away a bunch of somethings, and something that is exclusive for you. I know- that is a lot of somethings! haha.
I can’t share yet-but stay tuned for a sneak peek and the first chance to get involved- it is something you won’t want to miss.
Coming your way- another installment of High Point Market inspiration, how to keep cut lilacs looking good longer, my new favorite bedding (under $100!) and taking you along on a vintage inspired re-design from start to finish.
Have a safe Memorial Day- and in between the bbq’s and beach days- remember the reason behind the day off.
Happy weekend everyone.
