With A Twist

Crafter and blogger Tara Anderson has a sweet little Etsy store called With A Twist where she sells all sorts of delights for creative types who enjoy making things, including vintage paper kits (love!).

I peeked in on her Flickr photostream this week to see what she’s been up to and noticed a few scrapbook pages that she pulled together that looked more like something you’d frame and put on the wall – I did a double take and thought you’d like to see them. Lovely! One can truly find inspiration from so many things, especially when you peek outside of your own circle to see what others are doing in their world… It’s only to our own benefit that we keep an open mind and remain curious, don’t you think?

Oh Susannah!

A big hearty thanks to Susannah Conway from Ink on my Fingers, an English photographer and writer who interviewed me today on her beautiful blog.

Thank you Susannah!

It was fun to really open up like this in an interview, I definitely am learning to drop my guard and feel more at ease when approached with questions. Or perhaps it’s that Susannah just knows how to ask the right questions. In any sense, I talk about my recent class and experience as a teacher, childhood hobbies, favorite books and I list four people that I’d love to see mildly intoxicated… Ha! I hope that you enjoy it. :)

Thank you Susannah!

Sunday Suppers

Promise me to click on every link in this post. You won’t be sorry because each will take you to some magical places. Words cannot express how badly I want to be seated at this table, at this moment… this looks so festive and exactly how I would sum up the perfect summer’s day. Have you heard of the Sunday Suppers blog?

Sunday Suppers

It’s a beauty-filled burst of flavor and color with images that will make you want to run to Brooklyn and participate in their next class. Class, you say? Oh yes… You can dine at this table. Really. There next class is Sunday June 7 and the theme? Food & Wine Pairing — A French Dinner. All I can say is Sign. Me. Up.

These photos were taken by Karen Mordechai (a Brooklyn-based photographer with a beyond gorgeous blog) and I really can’t resist looking at them over and over again. The flowers are by Jessie at Rountree Flowers (be sure to visit Jessie’s portfolio – wow).

More about Sunday Suppers and further confirmation that I need to take a trip to Brooklyn this summer, “Sunday Suppers is a collaboration by Casey Solomon and Karen Mordechai. We share a class-cooking-dining experience, pairing friends and food. The food is market fresh, local and organic and the approach is to create seasonal and fresh meals together. The classes are held in Brooklyn, New York, taught by Casey Solomon and photographed by Karen Mordechai.” If you’re interested in taking a class email: karenandcasey [at]

Inspiration overload, am I right? Oh what a yummy post this is…
