Breakfast Cookies 12 Ways

It’s officially (officially!) summer, and as the temperatures climb my appetite drops. I want nothing hot on my plate, especially first thing in the morning with my iced coffee. This year I want to experiment with some breakfast cookies that can be made up in advance for the week and enjoyed on the go or on the slow. Check out theses twelve recipes I’m hoping to test out!

12 Incense Burners

Brass Ball Incense Holder

My introduction to incense was by way of a hippie-ish store I used to visit in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh during high school. To say, it was horrible. That generic smell that I’m sure you can bring to mind if you think about it only a little. The holder I used (sat atop a trunk covered in skateboarding stickers and candles) was one of the wooden ski-shaped variety. In college I finally discovered the better smelling stuff, but to this day I still have that same holder. I’d say it’s far past time for an upgrade…

12 Dopp Kits

Alden Leather Travel Kit // Waxed Canvas Toiletries Pouch // Manready Dopp Kit // Herschel Studio Tarpaulin Chapter Dopp Kit

Nothing makes me feel more prepared for travel than a solid dopp kit – do you have one? I actually keep doubles of a lot of my toiletries permanently inside because it makes packing for a trip much easier, and thereby me far less likely to forget something. I have a patterned one from Hammocks & High Tea that’s served me well for at least five years, I love it and can’t wait to take it along for a few more adventures this summer.

Rose 15 Ways

I suppose it’s part of my slow evolution into a Plant Lady that flowers work their way into my diet. With the exception of rose, I’m not sure any of the other petals I’ve eaten have had much flavor – more of a garnish situation I guess? This summer I’m anxious to work some more of this unexpected ingredient into everyday recipes to make them a little bit more special.

Let’s Talk Chandeliers

Staggered Glass Chandelier

Lighting is perhaps the element I most look forward to when designing a room – the right finish, the perfect glow, everything comes together to set the mood in that just right way. Chandeliers in particular are the icing on the proverbial cake of decorating, and I don’t think they’re utilized often enough. Think past the dining room and entryway to the bathroom, the bedroom, and beyond to take any room to the next level.

Let’s Talk Garment Racks

Valet Clothes Stand from CB2

The biggest dream I have for my house is turning the finished attic, complete with dormer windows and a turret, into my dream master suite. It’s split into two rooms, and ideally the front one would become the bedroom and the back a wardrobe and sitting room. The main obstacle is that there is no ductwork up there, and I live in a state that fully experiences all four seasons.

But whatever. Because when I’m finally able to save up and make it happen I know that I don’t want built-in shelving or suspended rods, what I actually want are old school garment racks lining the walls.

Are you elbow-deep in potting soil, too? So far I’ve already moved the majority of my indoor plants onto the front porch and repotted a bunch of succulent babies. This weekend three peony bushes, two peony roots, two oriental poppies, and heirloom tomatoes are on the docket for planting. I love how greenery and flowers make any space feel more alive, but always seem to be running short on pots and planters. It turns out now is the perfect time to stock up – plenty of these are on sale!
