I've been craving farmhouse red. Maybe it's all those colorful displays we've been seeing lately. I've said before that I can't live with a lot of red up close and personal EVERY day. But I need it every once in awhile. Sort of like I need anchovies. A little goes a long way.
Can checks and stripes be done in a better color? I've gotten out my vintage farmhouse cotton and linen towels to use as napkins. Nothing feels more indulgent to me than a thick soft cottony swath of cloth in my hand while I'm at table. Some crisp whites for balance, and a bit of vintage glass rounds things out.
I've taken up station under the trees for a bit of cookbook browsing. I have a new one that makes my mouth water every time I open it.
After seeing it in House Beautiful, I had no success finding it locally until I tumbled upon it at ANTHROPOLOGIE!! People flock to Ottolenghi's London restaurant for these vegetable dishes. It won't bore you.
We're still plucking a few garden peppers outside the back door. And the herbs seem to go on forever. It's easy to imagine on a day like this that the gorgeous weather will go on and on too. . . .
I hope your lovely weekend goes on and on too!
Thanks for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!
