cheering up my sink. this lovely lady suggests finding ways to make you mundane chores more enjoyable. in fact, i like all of her tips on living beautifully. her books are my new guilty pleasure.

marketblackberries
flea marketing with chelsea cook and mollie little. i brought home fresh cilantro, lavender, peaches, kale, cosmos and blackberries. i devoured a lobster roll. we drank stumptown coffee for the first time. i slurped down a peach and lavender popsicle. chelsea introduced me to a rosehip bush. i acquired frilly linens to masquerade as a table cloth and a bathmat. i ran into an old high school classmate (go cats). i left with a very full belly, happy heart, and heavy arms (weighed down with all my spoils). life is pretty sweet and i am very grateful for every moment.

Isn't stumptown coffee delicious? I love it, and all their coffeehouses over in Portland are pretty cool too.

Your pictures are inspiring! And thanks for the link to the blog post about daily routines - I'm trying to get into the swing of housewivery, and it does become a bit overwhelming if you don't keep it simple!

I love all your old-timey books!! I wish books were still bound like that... and you have two of my favorites, Little Women and The Little Prince.

You're totally blowing my mind with all your Flea foods. I had no idea they sold all those things! I haven't gone in forever and must plan a trip soon.
