Here is a list of lovelies tickling my fancy today.
1. Orange Desk-sicle
In fact, it has me thinking. See this little repurposed desk I picked up recently at a yard sale? I wanted to re-sell it, but now I’m thinking I should paint it orange, change the knobs, fit it with a new top, and keep it. How expensive could a scrap of carrara marble be? Expensive. I called. But maybe something else? I’ve had it in the kitchen a few days to see if I like having an island in there. I like the idea of wheels–move it when I need more room. The space could use the jolt of color.
Here is more of the space. What do you think? Crowded? Or, cozy? Talk to me, please. I need your help.
The other side of the kitchen:
See those lamps way down there, too? I’ve been considering black & white stripe lampshades. Anyone know where I can find some? Thank you, Jill, for the inspiration!
2. Bad Boy Smoothies
We’ve been downing these a lot lately. It’s my antioxidant one-two punch. Banana + frozen organic berries + heaping spoonfuls of ground flax seeds + handful of fresh spinach + oj or rice milk or coconut milk. The bebe loves his “otro jugo.” Delicious! Spinach never tasted so good.
3. Reader’s Real Life Eden
Reader and friend of TPH, Miss Karen T, sent me these photos of her garden in Southern California. A pool and she’s a master of vegan cooking–I think this would make a lovely vacation spot for me. I love inviting myself over.
Can’t you just smell the citrus?
Thank you for sharing, Karen! Oh, and how long, again, is the flight from Atlanta?
4. Turquoise Wedges + Skinny Jeans That Fit
The comfy everyday sandals are from BC Footwear, Shipwreck. They are smiles on my feet–especially when they are kissing the hem of my new French Connection skinny jeans. Happy day, I found skinny jeans that don’t bag at my knees or my caboose by mid-day and don’t fall off my waist. This is major on the luv list.You can go ahead and toss adorable vintage yellow buggy on the luv list, too.
5. Looking Forward to Good Things on the Calendar

7. Portraits of Me & My Daughter Drawn by My Daughter
Under a rainbow, holding our purses and Ositos, what could be more luv list material than this?
What is on your luv list today? Happy weekend, everyone!
