inspiration a week in review...

Posted June 02, 2012 by Christina

This is just a bit of what my week was like...

Amazing Lemon Tart from Rocq Cafe..
A little bit of shopping...

 The final days of my peonies and my Penelope..

 Framing some amazing vintage finds for our next One Kings Lane Sale

I was the winner of this sweet signed copy of Finding Home from the Finding Home blog of Greg Tankersley and Bobby McAlpine.  Thank you very much!
 Finally.. I sent off some pictures of my very messy home for consideration in publishing... a girl can dream right??

Your artistry always impresses me, that photo of the peony atop Vicki’s book is simply to die for. Good job!
Sending love…..

Christina a wonderful week.

The lemon tart I can just taste it. I am loving lemon and berry deserts over chocolate these days!

You home will be picked up by a shelter magazine soon I am sure!

Your couch is perfection – I want to steal it. Where did you get it?

Peonies, Vicki’s book and that lemon tart??? Be still my heart! All favorites of mine! Are your peonies the ones that grow here in SoCal? I got one at Roger’s but I am very disappointed in the blooms. Yours are much prettier!!! I guess it’s back to Trader Joe’ for my favorite thing of Spring and Summer…peonies!
So pretty! xoxo, Chris

So funny, I just sent instagram photos of my home to a publisher too. I am not sure instagram contact sheets is what they are used to. Good luck

Hi Christina – Sounds like my kinda week: enjoying flowers, shopping, eating tart…YUM! Except, I have not won anything in a while…pity me! You’ve got such great taste, and we’d all love to see your home in a glossy ;-)
