Get It Together: Backyard Movie

The oncoming warm summer evenings mean so much more time to spend outdoors and I, for one, have always wanted to have a backyard movie party. These two photos provide some wonderful inspiration. Let’s break down some of the elements (inspiration photo 1, 2, and 3).

Armchair Junking: Garden Markers

This spring, I want to start an herb garden! I’ve been scoping out the offerings at the local farmers’ market, and I’m just trying to decide where to keep my plants. Ada loves greens and would chomp them down if within reach, so I’m looking into window boxes or a shelf indoors. I also would like some adorable labels to go with them:

1) These chalkboard painted silver spoons would be perfect for your indoor herb garden.

2) Whimsical pottery markers with adorable veggies.

Armchair Junking: Enamelware Round Up

I love vintage enamelware for its rustic durability, bright colors, and crisp whites, so I couldn’t have been more excited I was given this sign a Valentine’s Day gift!  “Attention Chat Lunatique” definitely applies around here.  Three crazy cats live in our apartment, it’s just that two of them are in human form.

I did this chalk drawing of Ada before the original “cat party”  – a cocktail party to celebrate when we moved in 2 1/2 years ago. I decided that my new sign belongs near the entrance to our apartment below the chalkboard.

This week, let’s look at other fantastic enamelware finds for the perfect collection.

1) Green trim seems unique in a world of black and navy, so I love this enamelware baking pan.

2) I’d love to wash fresh summer berries in this navy blue trim enamelware colander with a handle.

3) This cobalt blue trim enamelware dining set contains soup bowl/deep plates, two mugs, a small plate and a covered tureen would be a great set for glamping (glamorous camping).

4) This red trim enamelware basin would be a great fruit bowl or serving dish.

5) Another unique color is the teal edge on these enamelware mixing bowls and saucepan.

6) Finally, it’s easy to imagine this navy blue trim enamelware coffee pot filled with wildflowers.

 

As mentioned, here’s that chat lunatique – Ada.  Can you see the crazy in those eyes?
