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.
Took a lovely afternoon walk with Logan yesterday around 3:00. It was so lovely and warm. I was actually able to wear a tank and feel sun on my shoulders for the first time this season! All the trees and bushes are in full bloom right now. There were so many gorgeous pinks, whites, yellows and spring greens.
I wore my new “jeggings” (see trend test drive post), a sailor striped appliquè tank and my new Lux Coronette owl talon necklace. My hair was still a little wet from the shower and I let it air dry in the sun.
I’m so glad the weather is finally turning. I hear we’re supposed to have a couple days of thunder storms soon, but even that is better than snow (rain I can handle, I grew up in Oregon for goodness sake). We need to find some cute vintage deck furniture for our tiny front porch. Off to check craigs list!
- Wood Herb Planter from Andrew’s Reclaimed in etsy.com – $25.00
- Succulents from Succulents Galore on etsy.com – Vary in price from $4.50 and up
- Garden Juniper Doormat from Wrapables – $24.95
For special occasions I would probably put up some bunting in shades of green and put a festive vintage tablecloth on the table. I have the most perfect little vintage 1970’s goblets in green glass that would look so lovely on the table as well.
We have a tiny little front porch on our apartment and since the weather is getting nicer we wanted to find a little dining set so we could have dinners outside, sit and read or just hang out with a drink. I found this bistro set from Target online that I think would be perfect! Compact, easy to fold and store or move, on SALE and has some pop (and a cute perforated design in the enameled metal top!).
So, how would you accessorize it? What plants, lanterns, etc? I’ll show you my picks later.
With spring quickly approaching I am taking the first step in taking my blogging to the next level by moving on over to wordpress. Eventually I am hoping to host my blog and really have my own space, but that is still way ahead of me.
I do hope you will follow me over here as I will be posting new, beautiful content (but still much in the same taste and style) and have lots of adventures ahead of me as a young, creative newlywed. I am very open to suggestions for new topics and trends to discuss and will of course be posting lots of vintage eye candy and tid-bits about our little world and where life is taking us.
