Kate Pugsley.

Kate Pugsley’s art is amazing. I adore the color palette she uses. Everything feels so beautifully whimsical, yet approachable. Maybe even a bit like what you’d find hanging on the walls of some long-forgotten child’s bedroom. I love that. Make yourself smile by checking out her store and her site.

Sunny Arm Chair.

Warm sun on my face, cold beer in my hand, adorable cafe chairs in my back yard. Could it be true? Yes, if you add a few Sunny Arm Chairs that are a kicked-up version of the sidewalk classic the world over. I’ll take four in yellow. Thank you.

Naomi.

I’m loving Naomi Murrell’s sweet little shop, simply called Naomi. It’s filled with fun, bright designs that I can’t get enough of. And I have to say that I also love the way she photographs her pieces – each one is a little study in color!

The Daily Eat: Vanilla Custard Tart.


Vanilla Week, Take #2!

Vanilla Custard Tart with a delicious looking raspberry glaze. I’d love to experiment with other toppings like fresh fruit or lemon curd – vanilla is a great companion to just about anything!
