The North Shore In April

The falls were flood worthy.

The valley was bare.

The fishermen were fly.

The view was scenic.

The lake was Superior.

The weather was extra cold.

But the beer was extra large.

Good Morning!

Dear Spring,

Is it warm where you are? I can’t wait to see you again, it’s been too long.

Love, Abby

The Mismatching Chair Hunt

June 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

One of the reasons I love spring so much is because each year complete strangers open their front yards and garages to sell and expose themselves to the masses. Yes, that’s right- it’s garage sale season.

And tomorrow I am going treasure hunting! There is a community garage sale north of the city with 100+ garages participating and I’m am going to hit them all! I am on the lookout for dinning room chairs. The idea is a collection of mismatching chairs that I can later paint the same color, much like the picture above.

For hunters like myself, best of luck to you! And for those who have found alternative ways to occupy their weekend, I hope it’s a happy one. Cheers!


Did Somebody Say Sandwich?

Something about spring and summer says sandwiches to me. And these two glorious looking sammies are speaking to me to right now! But lets be honest, anything incorporating avocados is a shoe-in.

1.) Open Face Salmon Sandwich from Steamy Kitchen, 2.) Gigi’s Monte Carlo Open Faced Sandwich from Paula Does Pasta

I’m loving the spring weather. Is it too early for croquet?  How about tennis? Inspired by Korean Vogue’s “Romantic Sport Fashion.”
