Huset, one of my favorite stores on Abbot Kinney, stock these simple, bold cup and saucer combos by Anna Kravitz. On my wish list. Advertisements
I just covered three great food blogs over on Purple Clover – BroadAppetite, My Blue and White Kitchen and Manger. So looking forward to getting into the kitchen with some new inspiration. The salmon salad above is from Sini, the Finnish grad student behind My Blue and White Kitchen.
I’ve long been a fan of Design Milk. Jaime Derringer does an incredible job over there … and I am completely envious of the cool house she and her husband bought last year. Jaime’s launched a home office competition – send in pics of your cool work space and you’ve got a chance to win a very nicely designed laptop. Check out all the details here. I love that she’s using Pinterest for the judging process – very clever. I’m going to enter my home office…although I clearly need to take better pics.
Lunch. Simple. Prosciutto and tomato and parsley from the garden. #thisisadesignblog http://instagr.am/p/RjJcS/

Brian and I were watching a bad movie the other night – or maybe it was a TV show – one character was mocking the other saying she probably was the type of person that blogged about the food she ate. We looked at each other and laughed. Because, yes I do that. But this was really good! Eggs fried into the hole in the middle of a bagel. Slimming? Probably not. But very delicious. I usually dig a hole out of the middle of a piece of sour dough but we were out. It’s extra good with fresh oregano from the garden and Tabasco. Oh, and milky coffee.
Wallpaper magazine just published their list of Top 20 Sites…I do love a list and this one is no exception. Contains two of my latest obsessions – Kickstarter and Pinterest. Not sure about Patternity though!

Well this isn’t really lunch…I had my first Wednesday work meeting with Sal this week. Great to get out of the office and meet up with a friend who shares my obsessions. We spent the morning working at Bolivar – one of our favorite local cafes. Latte, beet and carrot juice and a madeleine. I get the same thing every time I am there and am never disappointed.
