I am really loving:

*My two current reads. The Night Circus is such an enchantingly quirky novel and makes for an interesting contrast to the grittier world of A Storm of Swords. Still loving the Game of Thrones series.
*Free Amazon Prime instant movies. This one in particular was so funny and reminded me of those wonderful John Hughes teen movies where the girl next door always gets the gorgeous guy at the end, after experiencing humiliation and heartbreak first, of course. Great soundtrack, too.
*Making a summer outfit from a long forgotten FO.
*The simple pleasures of summer. Nothing beats a super slide or juicy slices of watermelon sprinkled with sea salt.
*Anticipating all the fun ways to wear my almost finished summer scarf/stole.

    I've never tried watermelon sprinkled with sea salt, but now I'm really curious!

  5. I really liked the Night Circus, it was such a different book! Your pictures are wonderful, and that scarf.........couldn't be more lovely. I really enjoy how you pair projects with your tops, so clever.

  6. Got to love the Game of Thrones series, last year, I read the entire series after a friends recommendation.

    Super slides are so much fun, aren't they? The one in the above picture reminds me of a carnival my daughter and I went to here in Maryland. It had a similar setup.

    I love the colors of your summer stole, simply gorgeous!

  7. I loved The Night Circus! So magical. (Well, obviously...) I'm a Song of Ice and Fire fan as well, hoping he comes out with a new book in before 5 years are out. Looks like a fun summer :)

  9. Lovely shots! Silly, but the thing that made me squee out loud was the watermelon plate. Those are totally my childhood plates. Thanks for the nostalgia!

    1. So funny that you mentioned the plates. These are the exact ones from my childhood, too. They were handed down from my mom.
