IN THE DETAILS- NO. 28

in the details no 28| Where is June?

Happiest Friday to all of you!  We are just back from a week long ski trip to Steamboat Springs, CO.  Maybe some of you saw the pictures over on Instagram.  We didn’t get any new snow, but the blue skies and sun were pretty amazing for this “barely” intermediate skier. After 2 seasons on downhill skis {something I said I would never do}, I am starting to grasp the obsession.  My favorite part of of skiing on this trip?  Quiet moments on the chair lift with my husband or my kids.  Which, of course, were directly followed by real moments of my ten year old swearing like a trucker and my almost teen rolling his eyes at me.  Gotta keep things balanced!

Here are few things that interest and inspire me this week:

1.  Frame wallpaper and your own printed snap shots would be so great in a play room or kitchen.

2.  Good. Lord.  This cake looks divine.

3.  Northwest winters require sturdy footwear and these boots might be the perfect investment. Don’t you think they will only get better with time?  I was surprised by the brand!?!

4.  I came across LIVELOVESARA when I was packing for a recent trip to NYC.  Now I’m obsessed.  She breaks down packing for trips and dressing for the everyday.

5.  Cement tiles are one of my favorite things.  These black and white beauties surrounded the bar at Salt and Lime in Steamboat Springs.  So good. {PS/ I love their URL!}

6.  No, I’m not going vegan.  But, since I don’t cook with dairy, these recipes are great for me!  Maybe try to cook one vegan meal a week and see how it goes?

7.  Such an awesome cut!

in-the-details-no-26 | WHERE IS JUNE?

A giant storm is heading toward us.  The rain has already arrived and the wind is set to hit later today.  If we are lucky enough to keep our power, it will be a cozy weekend.  The boys want to make Halloween cookies and I want a big pot of soup.  Stay dry, stay safe and give your little ones an extra long hug.  Life is precious.

Here a few things that interest and inspire me this week:

1. A DIY costume that’s too sweet for words!  If only I was willing to “make” a costume.  {Although I can’t wait until Big W’s costume arrives in the mail!}

2.  The most amazing geode drawer pulls.  How amazing would these look on a single drawer bedside table?

3.  Polo Beach, Maui.  The sand, and a Mai Tai, and ME in only 21 days {but who’s counting!}

4.  I am loving the illustrations by Mari Andrew every Friday on Cup of Jo.

5.  A slouchy beanie, a rainy day necessity!  I just found the perfect one…and bought it in two colors.  Soft {not itchy} and only $25.

6.  Stormy weather calls for warm mini pretzels.

7.  How cool is this IKEA hack?  It’s a slatted bed base used as office storage.  Brilliant!

This week was an absolute blur. I worked Monday – Thursday {more on that in an upcoming post} and suddenly it’s Friday.  The forecast shows rain all weekend, so it seems we are entering our hibernation mode.  {At least I will be.}  Time to break out that happy light!  Are you going hunting for the great pumpkin this weekend?  It is that time of year!

Here are a few things that inspire or interest me this week:

1. Central Park.  Fall.  I mean.

2. I read this book in two days.  I couldn’t put it down.  I HIGHLY recommend Relativity by Antonia Hayes.

3.  My bedroom is desperately calling for a little TLC.  The simplicity of this room is striking.

4.  Just added this new rug to our family room.  We love it.  And now Target is having a sale on rugs….get one!

5.  These awesome lights would look great in a kids room or in an office.

6.  Popsicle stained lips.  Right on. Ordering this lipstick today in Jam.

7.  Pajamas for a night out?  Why not!  A few accessories and velvet shoes and you are good to go.

It’s a Friday Night Lights kind of night.  We are headed to the UW v. Stanford football game this evening.  Well, actually the fun starts this afternoon.  Looking forward to catching up with college friends and being back on campus.  What are you up to this weekend?  Fall is here!  Have a good one. xo

Here are few things that inspire and interest me this week:

1. A misty view at Machu Picchu.  Seriously on the bucket list.

2.  Have you ever heard of magic cakes? Looks delicious, right?

Giddy up- it’s Friday!  I’m looking forward to this first fall weekend.  Little Man is playing in his first flag football game of the season on Saturday.  We are hoping he will pull a flag this year.  Man, I love that kid!  Hope you have great things planned for yourself and your family.

Here a few things that inspired and interested me this week:

1. Oh, these black houses in Iceland have me Googling “Best Exterior Black Paint Colors”.

2.  An ingenious way to store/display heels.

3.  Call me old fashioned, but I like my earphones.  Obviously I didn’t just by the iPhone 7.  Instead, picked up these gold ear buds and they are AMAZING!

4.  Clogs with socks?  Totally PNW right there, but I kind of love it.  Totally out side my comfort zone-so I think I’m going to try it.

5.  This side shelf lamp would be perfect in a guest room.  Wish we had one in our house.

6.  Bomber jackets of my dreams.  Seriously.

7.  The 70’s called and word is that wall hangings are all the rage.  Like or dislike?

I’m so happy it is Friday!  This week seemed exceptionally long, but I did accomplish quite a bit.  Finishing a few projects that have been lingering always feels good.  Fall officially starts next week, but I can already feel it in the air.  I swapped out my closet and I am ready for long sleeves and boots.  What are you up to this weekend?

A few things that inspire and interest me this week:

1.  The epitome of cool.  This snap shot of Lauren Hutton feels like it could have been taken on the streets of NY this week.

2. This salad sounds so delicious.  If peaches are out of season, I’m thinking you could swap pears in their place.

3.  Looking for something different to do in Seattle?  The Smith Tower has been re-imagined with a general store and a speak-easy bar.  Great views of the city in a historical building.

4.  These jeans.  Is 42 too old for rips and frays?  I say, no.

5.  Colder weather is on its way.  Time to cuddle up and read.  How perfect is this blanket?

6.  A positive message each and every morning.  Everyone could use a friendly bathmat.

8.  A modern farmhouse in Missouri.  This family knows how to dwell well.

And just like that it is Friday again!  Amen, to that.  I am thinking that every work/school week should be 4 days.  So much better!  Little Man is off to a camp out with Dad this weekend, so it’s just me and Big W.  It is so nice to have a little time one-on-one with my kids.  The weather is going to be awesome in Seattle, so I have a feeling it’s going to be a great couple of days.

A few things that inspire and interest me this week:

1.  Today is National Donut Day!  Go ahead and splurge.

2.  Love these nails and the play with negative space.

3.  Oh. My. Gosh.  I am obsessed with this vanity.  I will be eternally grateful to anyone that can help me find the source!

4.  Summer sandals.  This color way would look awesome with a tan.

5.  Warmer weather is begging you to spend hours outside.  These lounge chairs totally up the patio game.

6.  Confetti Cookies.  That’s all.  {Well, also, these will be perfect for our family’s summer birthdays.}

7.  Time for a matinee my friends!  Me Before You is in theaters now.  Bring your tissues.

And some how it is Memorial Day weekend.  The boys have exactly one month until summer break begins.  I think we might JUST make it!  I hope you have something planned for the long weekend.  We are spending time near the river in the woods.  Food, wine and babies!  I look forward to time holding my two month old nephew, while my unruly children shoot BB guns and throw rocks in the river for hours!

A collection that inspires and interests me this week:

1. Anjelica Houston and friend circa 1971.  Their patriotic style is everything.  I feel this picture could have been taken today!

2.  This garden mint candle fills the room with the most lovely scent almost instantly.

3.  My birthday is months away, but this rose gold bracelet will be on the top of the list.  It is even better in person!

4.  The 5 piece french wardrobe. A basic list, but so fantastic.

5.  I need to up my shorts game this summer.  Need to take a trip to the mall and try these on.

6.  Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Bars. That’s all.

7.  My grandfather Giuseppe Scarcello, an Italian immigrant.  He served in the US Army in WWI, which earned him United States citizenship.  Thank you to all who have served our country.  xoxo

in the details no 18 | Where is June?

Not sure how we are mid-way through January, but we are on the downhill slide into February.  The beginning of a new year always brings renewed desire for creativity.  I’m always looking.  We are about to tackle a bathroom remodel, so I’m back on the hunt for inspiration in design.  I’m also facing swim suit shopping in my near future.  Pretty sure trying on swim suits can, and should be, classified a form of torture for middle aged women.  {More on that FUN topic in the near future!}  What are you up to this weekend?  Our town is Seahawk crazy again!  Hoping for a big win on Sunday.

Here is what has me inspired and interested this week:

1.  I {heart} snowy evergreens!  I’m heading up to ski with a girlfriend today.  If all goes well, I will post a thumbs-up picture on Instagram.

2.  An ingenious way to hang and display the most amazing lights!  {Emily Hendrson is magic.}

3.  Kind of digging the neutral woven chair.  I think I have a chair/lust problem.

4.  A bright rug.  It would brighten any entry way or office!

5.  On to List #2 of The 52 Lists Project.  {List your favorite characters from books and movies.}

6.  Everyone is on a cleanse and all I can think about is doughnuts!

7.  Street Style.  Long coat, ripped faded denim, oxfords.

In the Details-Holiday Edition | Where is June?

For the next few Fridays, this series will be holiday gift editions.  I will try to share gifts for all the gals, guys and kids in your lives.  I love browsing in shops and stores, but let’s be honest, the majority of my shopping happens with a click of a mouse.

Here is the first of my finds:

1.  Peppermint Cocoa for your neighbors.  Easy to make and all the ingredients can be found at the grocery store.

2.  These might be the cutest long johns ever!  They are like running tights with the most darling pattern.

3.  Road tape for the little car lover in your life.  My boys would have LOVED this!

4.  Bloody Mary kit from Mouth, the new and hip Hickory Farms.

5.  Trials Fusion, an  Xbox One game without violence.  They are hard to find!

6.  I am in love with this backpack by Will Leather Goods.  Perfect for me, but I think the guys would love it too.

7.  Gold helium balloon ornament.  The perfect addition to any tree!  {Or tie it on a package.}
