What is it about these adorable kids in these pictures that make me want to stock up my kitchen for rainy day movies & baking? Sigh! I wish my niece and nephew were closer so I could reenact these scenes.

Has the spring rain hit where you are?

DIY on A Subtle Revelry

Since watching Moonrise Kingdom, A and I have been talking about converting our secret attic room into a cute “tent.” This beautiful inspiration on A Subtle Revelry had me lusting after a sweet and feminine version. I’m extra loving those stars & giant flowers.

Do you have an attic room? What have you done with it?

{Collecting Rainbows} Colorful Garden Hoses

Gone are the days of running through the sprinklers and setting up the slip and slide in the summers. At least until I get my own house with a yard! When that happens, I’ll be sure to get one of these colorful garden hoses ($70). What could sound more appealling?

What color of the rainbow would you choose?


{Collecting Rainbows} Animal Erasers

I remember collecting erasers as a kid. They weren’t all that crazy. I’d get really excited for one shaped like a book or a popsicle, But, I probably would’ve gone crazy for these little animal erasers and wanted them in every color.

With summer solstice happening yesterday and summer weather fully on the rise here in Portland, I’m daydreaming in all things summmer. Trips to the river and coast, bicycling to picnic nearby, and all the summer bounty – especially fruit! I’m so excited to go pick berries soon and be stuck with an overabundance so that I “have to” make pies and muffins, and jam. The best!

Do you like fruit motif-ed things? What’s your favorite fruit?

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Lissy Elle Laricchia’s Let’s Play Pretend

Girls grew up on fairy tales. I won’t deny that I still hope to someday wake up and land in one. Not so much for the story line or plot, but simply to live in a world where anything is possible, animals talk, and things can be oversized or miniature without a second glance. It’s truly something magical. Photographer Lissy Elle Laricchia has found a way for this world to come alive. In her world and in her photographs. This series aptly named “Let’s Play Pretend” is hauntingly and playfully beautiful. I’ll trade in my tape measure for a giant tea cup any day. (Via Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard.)
