New Work by Jenny Vorwaller | In the Shop

• 22 August 2014

It always feels a bit like Christmas when one of my favorite artists restocks her online shop.  I literally feel my breath taken away when viewing so much beauty in one little space.  If I didn't already own four of Jenny Vorwaller's works, I certainly would not be able to restrain myself this time. Hopefully, that means you don't!

With the kids almost back in school, treat yourself to a piece of original art and revamp your space to celebrate the tranquility that September inevitably brings :)

Guava Pineapple Refresher

There are only three ingredients, but they are good ones!  One hundred percent guava juice is difficult to find, but not impossible!  I use the Ceres brand from South Africa, which oddly turns up at the most random of places (my local drug store?).  It's definitely worth seeking out.  Sometimes, you can even find it on sale for around $3.  When you do...stock up!

A Morning at Volunteer Park Cafe

• 13 August 2014

With school starting back up in three weeks, I am starting to dream again of the occasional morning get away with friends.  Don't get me wrong...I am not wishing away a moment of summer; however, it is always fun to ponder a change of scenery.  

I often am asked what my favorite breakfast spots are here in Seattle, so it was a real pleasure to be asked to taste the new-ish menu at Volunteer Park Cafe.  My short list includes about five restaurants, all very different from each other, but tasty in their own way.  I was thrilled to confidently add this fantastic, local joint to my list of must-eats! If stepping away with a friend to enjoy a delicious breakfast in a setting that feels like one of Seattle's best kept secrets, take yourself to Volunteer Park Cafe.  Not only is this popular neighborhood joint a choice destination, but the allure of the beautiful park down the street cannot be ignored.  So indulge in a few extra pastries and then promptly walk them off at Volunteer Park afterwards.  Be sure to stop at the arboretum as well!  

This welcoming cafe is casual, cozy, communal and gourmet.  If skipping the hussle and bustle of downtown sounds appealing to you (and why wouldn't it?), this Capitol Hill joint is a must-stop.  
While I prefer eating here for breakfast or brunch, please note they do offer dinner services Tuesday through Saturday.

Nautical-themed Pie Slice Boxes

• 04 August 2014

Late Summer is the perfect time to throw a nautical-themed gathering (shower, bbq, party, dinner, birthday, etc.) with the warm weather during the day and the cooler breezes at night settling in. However, let it be known that in our home, any day is appropriate for a get together involving anchors. My three-year-old is surprisingly obsessed with them and this new offering is to celebrate his love. Note that this set includes a color block spoon, because the color is amazing and because sometimes it's fun to eat with a spoon instead of a fork :)

This is a limited edition DELUXE set and will be offered until supplies run out.  View it here
