I was looking at some lovely Liberty projects online the other day and found this fantastic top made by Melissa at Polka Dot Chair. She used the Well Composed Blouse pattern by Anna Maria Horner. Find it here. I really want this blouse! Will someone make one for me?
We were in Bellevue (Seattle area) over the weekend and go to do some fun shopping. At Williams-Sonoma we saw their adorable Easter dinnerware. I loved this Spring Garden platter, but it was a little pricey... So we picked up a couple of salad plates. I can't get over how cute the bunny is!
I had not heard of cabinet houses before discovering Liberty's new collection. They are fascinating little doll houses and miniature rooms made in cabinets in the 1700s and 1800s. Here are some great examples. The first is called the Killer Cabinet (named for the owner) from the Victoria and Albert Museum. The other two examples are from the Rijksmuseum. Such a fun idea.
Liberty has a fantastic new line called the Chesham Cabinet Collection. The designs are based on antique doll houses and cabinet houses. That was so interesting to me because of my family's interest in the Thorne Miniature Rooms. Beautiful fabric, as always.
Since we've moved to Wenatchee, our drives home to Utah have taken us through Boise. Sharing a space with the Boise Fry Company is the fabulous Guru Donuts. This is a picture of mine - it's hipsterberry flavored (berry and lavender), and it's so good.
Have you heard about this charming new edition of Harry Potter? My mom and sister gave it to me for Chrstimas, and it is so fantastic. Jim Kay's illustrations are lovely. I'm enjoying reading the book again.
Our Christmas ended up being thrown off a bit by our trip to Florida, so many of our gifts arrived into the new year. One of my orders was from Shop Londons - a great resource for perfumes, soaps, etc., from London. I needed new perfume, and I love Penhaligon's. Their scents are complex but subtle. Malabah has become my signature scent, but I also ordered a sample library to try out some of their new scents. And I got this great detangling comb handmade by Kent.
