It MUST be house project time...ordering French Doors...You can pretty much get ANYthing here, even the high end, showroom fancy stuff...have to love Home Depot.
Found this on a trail behind the baseball fields..."it takes a lot of small sticks to hold up one huge trunk"? Is that a saying?
Dreaming of Sunday morning Dutch Baby breakfast this Monday afternoon.... Lionel said it best..."easy like Sunday morning..."
Run Merin RUN!
Merin brought this bouquet to me, of wild flowers she picked on a nearby wooded trail, during one of our son's baseball games and I loved the contrast...floral, feminine beauty next to the dirt, sweat, Doritos wrappers and chain link. this photo makes it look huge but it is 4 inches tall.
Are we done yet? I can't find ANYthing.
Happy Birthday Greek yogurt pancakes 12 year old Merin!
One of my favorite Mother's Days...Mariners vs A's...Felix pitched, sun was shining, kids were happy...oysters and a cold beer to kick it off. Thank you James and kids!
if you haven't already purchased @food52 new cookbook, Genius Recipes, you should do it now. Had a great morning @booklarder, listening to creator, @miglorious talk about her love of food and love of creating this beautiful book.
Thank you local farmers and @baconandcream (Bellevue Farmers Market) for sharing your fresh food with us! I love seeing this poster each May...reminds me that Summer is on its way.
Am always loving Marination Makai @curb_cuisine, especially for our nephews 5th Bday ~ Happy birthday Lincoln!
Newberg, OR...wow! Pinot, sunshine, and the best cup of coffee...I'm a fan.
Visited, Earthwise Architectural Salvage today to pick up some salvaged wood Butcher block for our house project, and dropped off two mid-century chairs of my Grandmothers to be be refinished.... I couldn't help taking a photo of this...can you tell what it is? what a cool project for someone!
snails seem to be everywhere this spring...Lio had to give it a sniff...a very gentle nudge, lick and sniff...
even in the midst of chaos (you should see our house), take a moment and eat some good food. broth with good miso paste, and and egg whisked in, just a touch of Liquid Aminos, with my new favorite food item, "Britts Market Kimchi"...its is THE best one I've tasted by far...sip, slurp and love it.
carpet install! this has nothing to do with merin designs other than its "family life" and that's what merin designs is all about. I'll continue to post photos of our house project as it is becoming a full time job...a few things on today's list: going to the warehouse to ship some orders, then container store to get plastic bins to store kids clothes while their rooms are being painted (taping tomorrow!), and then looking for fabric to recover two mid century chairs from my grandmother...
