Ice Cream ..with a touch of Vintage

A unique and little shop called sketch in berkeley,CA Has the best ice cream (hand-made from organic, local ingredients) . Some of the unique flavors is the combination of the burnt caramel ice cream with olive oil and sea salt topping tried by blogger Josephine of Red Thread..
I adore the shop's whimiscal vintage touch combined with the detailed sketches of chalk !

and I intend it to be this elegant..

In June , my little baby girl will have her first birthday..lots of planning going on my mind , nothing done yet..but I feel that an elegant , natural, frenchy sorta party would best describe what I have in mind for Zayona.. there is a second option..which I will post about next time..

Okay..maybe scale it down a bit for little kids ..but no cartoonish characters ,thankyouverymuch..

Le Jardin

Dear Husband ,

You have asked me to search for some garden ideas and materials , I can't stop searching and I can tell you that its not an easy task , this is one of the lush french inspired garden ideas . with the "Island" created in the edge , filled with lots of pots and plants and flowers.

and How about this fire place? an exterior fire place.

Look at this flooring , the color , the warmth and the aging of the wood is what gives it the beautiful touch..

more beautiful ideas to come in future posts.

Have a Wonderful Day ..

My HouseWarming wish list! Part One ..

I know I've been away for a little while now.. I'm preparing for the big move to my new apartment. No more rent , thankyouverymuch! I get to decorate , paint , and change everything as I like ! I have my own house warming wishlist .. do new homeowners get to do that? or do they have to be newly married to get the " wedding registry" thing? If not , I'd like to be the first to start that trend! its a need , not a trend , mind my words!

this frame shelving , for my bathroom, YES , my BATHROOM.

those old vintage luggage ..for storage and display!
Those hooks...Oh so pretty!

Look at this rug! It's just what I need! in a bigger size of course..Oh and the chest is pretty too!

we are already getting this SMEG frigde/freezer , but I just wanted to brag ..

I need this KitchenAid mixer , but maybe in another color?

ah La creuset Orange..

this clock from Midas Kuwait

and this is more of a TO DO than a WishList , but it's just what I need to do with the single column standing so weirdly in the middle of the livingroom/dining room ..cover it up with wood panels!
