Although it means I have to get up a bit earlier to savor this ritual, it’s worth it.

This past week this gorgeous recipe was featured and…… man, is it easy and delicious! read more…

I have a long-time friend hosting an incredible vintage crystal sale soon.

The place is full of gorgeous wine glasses and champagne glasses starting at $12 each (a steal, usually $60+) fancier ones are around $20. The sparkle of real crystal vs. glass amazed me.

Mark your calendar, sale starts March 19 at 9am, and the best selection will be in the early days.  I will post more photos in a few days and Seattle location.

Lots of vintage gifts too vases, bowls, colored glass, even chandeliers.

Many of these items have been packed away for decades!
