Ya know….

When you make something that is delectable
but looks not so delectable?
yeah. me too.
Enter sage pesto on roasted veggies.
if you will

My sage was taking off in the herb garden from a few weeks ago
The basil was looking downright shrimpy.
So….made a pesto from the sage.
Note: Breastfeeding mom’s do NOT want to eat sage. Decreases milk supply.
true story.

then roasted some fresh from someone else's garden veggies…

ugly

But dayum good.
yep.
:: Sage pesto ::
loose cup of fresh sage
1/2 cup of parmesan
3 TBSP of walnuts (or pine nuts)
1/3 cup of oil
Blend sage, parm and walnuts in blender or cuisinart….slowly stream in the oil. Blend till creamy.

Searching for a fireplace…

I Have long had an obsession love for

those vintage/retro metal fireplaces

Think ski lodge in the 70’s

or I do…cuz that is where we met

malm3

We even have one in the Casita…

and it is used many a night.

casitafireplace

Look how cozy….and this is just filled with Christmas lights.

But

lately….

I have been on the hunt for another.

for outside.

where we often sit by a fire. That is currently far less cool. Far less hip. far less ski lodge.

I would love this…

or this…

Hello gorgeous…

malm2

Malm is still making these same fireplaces they developed in the 60’s.

They started out as a metal manufacturing company

and played around with designing fireplaces on the side.

Quintessential cool.

In my book.

But I am gonna keep on looking on craigslist.

Anyone have one? Or two?

It will be my new kitchen herb planter…Cuz I love cooking with fresh herbs
and hate spending $2.50 for a little packet.

So much for retirement, dear fountain.

Mark the date….2015!

I happen to have a love

for all things

Calendar.

hey it’s a new year….no?

I like to know where I am going…where I have been. And I prefer it on a wall

to a phone.

One that I have….and a couple that I want

you may too…

Linnea makes a beautiful artful calendar that I have been using, and gifting, for years

linnea-design-2015-7-470x600

It fits in an art frame….and it is always fun to see what month comes next

linnea-design-2015_wall_black-423x600

except when I forget to change it

for, oh, maybe a month…

Next….is an I want.

a phases of the MOON calendar.

Beautiful in it’s copper screen print on soft paper.

moon

Ain’t she purrrrrty?

Find this lunar baby right here at etsy

And for you kinestheites…..you know who you are

the touchers…the feelers…

A calendar of bubble wrap.

bubbble 

at 40 inches it is long…so find a perfect wall, and pop the days away.

at uncommon goods

Go….get thee a calendar.

if ya want.

no forcing, it’s 2015.

A hiatus, of sorts…

A day goes by

and then a few.

Trusting you had a merry Christmas and beautiful holiday…

May the coming year be fruitful.

Oy…Christmas.

Maybe just me….but the thought of

pulling out Christmas

stuff

Isn’t intriguing this year.

I was all aboard two weeks ago…but petered out.

Did get a Charlie Brown tree decked him out with some

vintage ornaments

IMG_7907

Put him in the kitchen/familyroom

IMG_7910

Paperwhites are reaching…slowly.

IMG_7904

Lulu borrowed some branches from the tree…

In all of her merry-making style

IMG_7887 

Happy Merry.
