What Tickled My Fancy This Week?

Like every week, I spend a ton of my week browsing around Blog Land while I neglect my husband, cleaning, and cooking. Ok, so really only the cooking gets neglected. It's like an addiction that I just can't quit. (Not that I want to anyways!) These are the things I came across that tickled my fancy this week and I found to be extraordinaire.

First things first......do you need a Ventian Spritz? They look so refreshing don't they! The bar cart is fab too!


Thanks to Coco + Kelley for the recipe

The Venetian Spritz:

4 ounces Prosecco
A splash of sparkling water
1.5 to 2 ounces Aperol
Orange
Lemon
1 green olive

In a glass over three or four ice cubes, pour the prosecco, a dash of sparkling water and the Aperol, being sure to follow that order lest the Aperol sink to the bottom without mixing. Garnish with a slice of orange, a twist of lemon (or both) and an olive.

Divine Dinner Party


Via Ada and Darcy
I am salivating at how divine this table setting is. It makes me want to run out to West Elm right now, buy the square lucite plates, and throw a dinner party. Oh but wait, that would mean I have to cook. Skip that idea. I'll just stare at the pretty photos instead! I think these photos have inspired me to make a runner for my table too. Add it to the project list. 

Check out these before and after photos from Home-Styling. They are simply gorgeous! You can check out more of the before photos here. Ana is simply a design genius!




If you don't know who Ana is, she's the only producer of a Home Makeover show in Portugal. You have to see the pics of her home- romantic and simply stunning. And once again I'm raving about what a talented designer she is. Maybe she could come to the states and visit my house?



I'm crushin' on a Vintage Poster. Visit their site and you will know what I mean. They name really says it all and the prices are sooo affordable- $10 for an 8x10 or $14 for an 11x14. Plus, right now you get 25% off when you order 3 or more prints. Guess who's ordering 3 or more prints for the kitchen? They also have prints for kiddos and customizing available. Sweeeet!





Hope you are having a wonderful Father's Day weekend! Happy Father's day to my sweet dad and the best hubby in the world!
