What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! We had the most amazing thunderstorm last night. As I snuggled in with Huxley to go to bed, all I could hear was the soft rumble of thunder in the distance and a serenade of raindrops. My favorite way to drift off….

Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:

*Absolutely stunning blend of music, dance and passion.

*Great granola tips.

*Cordwood hits the mainstream.

*I adore Alys Fowler and her lavender shortbread in rainy England.

*Love this glimpse into Hannah’s studio (check out her newest pieces, too; they look like cicada wings!).

*Peaches, peaches and more peaches!

We’re throwing an ice cream social here tomorrow. It’s part of the new book and I’m so excited to spend today making toppings, sauces and, of course, the main attraction, ice cream (I’m thinking Blackberry Mint). Also, Stacy‘s in town from Seattle and is making a trip out to the cove today to say “Howdy!”

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!

*For any of you new to the site, each Friday I post a photo of Huxley, ‘cuz he’s what I dig the most!
