I recently came across and bunch of vintage glass baby bottles and found myself drawn to them for some reason. Perhaps it was the increments of measurement in red. Regardless, I took them home and right now I have one on my table filled with daffodils from Jared’s mom’s garden. It’s adorable and is just the right size for a hand cut garden bouquet. It makes me wish I had a baby shower coming up. I think these would be the perfect vase for fresh flowers in a nursery.
It’s stormy and cold outside again today and whole chickens were on sale at the local grocery so I figured it was high time I roasted a chicken. I think I’ll be modifying this herb roasted chicken recipe from the wonderful Pioneer Woman Cooks and stuffing it with a lemon and garlic and using some lemon pepper on the outside. I think I might serve it with potatoes but I haven’t quite decided yet.
Light permitting I will to post some pictures tomorrow and will most certainly let you know how it goes. Also bookmarking her recipe for petite vanilla bean scones for a later date when I’m feeling adventurous.
I love new takes on old classics. As I’m writing I’m currently wearing my Lamixx asymmetrical halter in vintage red that I recently purchased from Jacqueline Rose’s beautiful etsy shop. It’s a unique twist on the classic halter. The back is incredibly flattering and the fabric is soft, comfortable and washes well. It looks adorable tucked into a high-waisted skirt of untucked with a pair of shorts or skinny jeans to show off the curved bottom on the back (reminiscent of your favorites vintage baseball tee). Most certainly a staple in my summer wardrobe this year.
She also has other beautifully made basics in her shop like white v-necks, black leggings and slouchy sweatshirts (that don’t look dumpy). All are made of beautiful fabrics, have interesting lines, a beautiful fit and handmade right here in the US.
