Loft I loved!

I haven't had time to post anything lately due to my very painful back spasm! For a few days, I could not move around, thanks to lovely hubby, he has helped me a lot, take me to the bath room in the middle of the night, dress me up, take me to the doctor and help out with my daily chores! well, here are some pics that I've looked over and over again, and it helped to ease my pain a little bit!

Lofty spaces...

These were a few of my favorites from the Living Etc. website, hope you enjoy them!

Chocolate chips pancakes created by My Love,..

My hubby made some awesome chocolate chips pancakes for brunch today, boy, was soo good, I put some of my old time favorite blueberry sauce and some fresh peaches from the farmers market.

my summer snack


Bruschetta is one my favorite simple summer dishes and I love that I can currently find all of the ingredients at the farmers’ market. I’ve mastered a simple recipe that really enhances the sweetness of the tomato, the peppery taste of basil and the fruity aroma of the olive oil. Here are my little added touches for making it just right.

-Use high quality extra virgin olive oil. Trust me, it’s worth the extra money.
-If you can find some, buy a loaf of rustic, Artisan bread (La Brea Bakery’s Country Sourdough is perfect).
-Cut the garlic in half and rub the open end on the freshly toasted bread. The heat from the bread melts the garlic evenly without being overpowering.
-Finish with a touch of premium kosher or sea salt (I swear by Maldon’s flaky crystals).

I'm a sucker for Vintage Jewerly,..
