Vintage French cookbooks made for American audiences, including first editions of the Cordon Bleu & the Art of French Cooking Volume II. I love the illustrations & design of the charming Peter Pauper Press editions, so I threw in a non-Gallic example from my collection as well. Bon appetit!

Things are ripening for one of my creative business ventures, as I take the hot & humid days of summer to continue to hone my business plan as well as my skills, & keep my eyes & ears open for a workable venue... in the meantime, touching base with some good folks & seeing friends play music & taking in their art (& even taking some home, lucky me) has been invigorating & inspiring. Wishes for the same for you... any plans to create a little something or see/hear something this weekend?

Beautiful spaces for sale, where the quirky & creative details really pop out without the distraction of furnishings, followed by a couple of pics of a very styled yet stylish lived-in space. Created by the Brooklyn Home Company, a team of architects, designers & artists who exemplify a neo arts & crafts approach, I am quite keen on the mix of modern & vintage with hand-crafted bits. & orange. That kitchen at bottom needs to move in to my house.

While our town is besieged by a certain merry madness this weekend, we've opted to take a mellower route & have planned a hike followed by a family cookout, & to take advantage of the relative quiet of the farmer's market & our own garden. Enjoy yours!

Yesterday a series of thunder & lightening storms blew through & brought with them heavy rains & hail (!!). Just south of us in Massachusetts, a tornado touched down. And then, just before the sun fell, this odd & beautiful light.
