and a new blue bench….Oh MY!

Love my new Blue Bench!

I adore the color of my new bench.

Love my new Blue Bench!

I love the distress…and the bronze grommets!! #jewelry #summer #photography #Blythe #dolls #jewelry #summer #photography #Blythe #dolls

And the fact that my Blythe dolls love it too. #jewelry #summer #photography #Blythe #dolls

These silly little ladies decided to borrow two of my favorite necklaces to go along with their summer fashions.

The one with the arrow I purchased at Kemosabe, Vail & it’s by Maria Lightfoot. The necklace on the right I bought here in Telluride, CO at Sublime. It’s designed by Chan Luu. #jewelry #summer #photography #Blythe #dolls

I filled my arms with fresh flowers yesterday at the Telluride Farmers Market. #photography #summer #flowers


I’m so glad I did because they make out home extra vibrant, happy & lively!

Sweet peas are always a favorite. #photography #summer #flowers

So are mixed bunches with sunflowers. #photography #summer #flowers

Great photos! And I love your bench, it looks great! I also like dolls :). It was nice to see something different. I love the recipes, but everything extra is great too!

Thank you! I always like to spice up my blog with some “lifestyle” & surprise posts. Glad to hear you enjoy the twist too!

That bench…that is just AWESOME! I have an antique toolbox that’s a similar color blue. When I say ‘toolbox’, it’s more like a box you’d use to organize your silverware which is how I use it, but back in the day, they kept screwdrivers, tools, etc in it. Anyway, similar color of blue, chippy, etc and I could stare at it, or your bench, nonstop!! LOVE

Awesome & thank you Averie! Think I want your toolbox too 😉 I actually stacked up some of my vintage, painted boxes next to the bench. A super happy collection.

A feast for the eyes Marla. Love all of this. Aren’t Sweet Peas heavenly? Our CSA farm has had them the last few weeks and nothing smells better.

Hi Toni! I totally agree. Sweet peas are just so beautiful & fragrant. Each week I purchase some at the farmers market here :)

Love your photos!

I love that color blue. I can’t wait to live in the States again and actually get to buy stuff for my house! I have been living in Malaysia for 4 years, and knowing that any year now I might be leaving keeps me from investing in too much. It just costs too much to ship when you leave.

Michelle, that totally makes sense. Bet it’s hard to resist purchases in Malaysia ~ I hear there are amazing furniture pieces! Hopefully you can be freed up to shop soon :) How cool that you live there though!
