Small Morsels:

(Gerbera daisies for handmade wedding centerpieces)

      Hello dear readers! (Are you still around?!) I'm so sorry for the lack of proper posting these past few weeks. I took an unintentional break from blogging after my computer was broken in an unfortunate accident and I just recently got my precious piece of technology back from the repair shop. I'm really excited to start posting again as well as visit all of your lovely blogs and catching up on comments!
      The last few weeks have been a bit difficult and while I'd like to say that I can handle tough situations with elegance and grace... that isn't always how things go down. Perhaps one of my least graceful moments was when the first floor of my apartment got flooded and I was able to stuff a multitude of profane words into one sentence (a sentence that was as long as a paragraph)! Another ungraceful moment would have been my reaction after finding out that my computer had been damaged by someone other than myself. Needless to say... the last handful of weeks have helped me to have more patience during stressful situations. I have also learned that Murphy's Law always applies and that I should really savor the small morsels in life while I am able to! Here are a few things that have kept me positive as of late:

(Cut up hello kitty socks for my peep toe booties)

(A cheeseburger that was truly a religious experience!)

(Birthday consignment shopping at Simply Chic in San Francisco. Walking
into this boutique is like stepping to Carrie Bradshaw's closet!)

(An all veggie sandwich made by my neighbor)

(A truly edible coffee table arrangement made with
 rosemary, marigolds, and chamomile from my garden.)
(My love for upcycled vintage furniture continues with this bar cart.
When I received this little piece for free from my boyfriend's mom,
I knew it would be perfect painted gold!)
      I hope everyone out there is well, safe, and doing everything they can to see the beauty that is all around us! 



  1. great post! i love the vintage cart!!! totally swoon!

  2. Happy belated birthday and welcome back, friend! We missed you! We cant practice grace under pressure and you have a right to be a litttle less than lady like when things go so wrong!

  3. Oh no, I'm sorry you've had a stressful few weeks! The flooding must have been awful, and it sounds silly, but a broken computer really can be the most stressful thing (especially when done by someone else)! My boyfriend's laptop broke and it was with Apple repair for 2 weeks! He was a mess without it! On another note, that veggie sandwich looks amazing!

    Cute little sockies! And I will have to take a field trip to San Francisco to visit Simply Chic. Sounds like a great place!

  5. It's so great that you've taken a moment to appreciate what's good in the midst of such trauma! Floods and destruction- ack! THat burger looks goooood!

  6. Sorry you've been stressed doll...I hate when that happens. I do hope you will find some time for yourself and relax!! Sounds terrible. I send you a great big hug and hope things get better and better. Thank you for the sweet comments on my new blog, I really appreciate it :) I do still love that drinks table, it's so sweet :))) Have a wonderful day darling!! Xox

  7. Aw Nico my blogger buddy!!! My mom always tells me that life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react... we can't always control things, but we can control ourselves :) Amen to that cheeseburger :)
