It's been so fun for the last few years, but our lives are leading us in new directions. Heather is getting ready to start a family (baby boy due in September!) and I am beginning my graphic design career at a local ad agency. While we will miss digging through racks of clothing to find that perfect dress, or getting up early to find the goods at estate sales, we are both thrilled to begin new chapters of our lives!
We hope to see some lovely faces this weekend for our last hurah!
sneak peaks are up on FB, looking like there will be some great finds. I hope you all can make it! I'll see you there!
I have been dying to wear these shorts that I got at the Mighty Swell Summer Sale, so cute, summery and bright! I adore them, so I just decided to take them for a test run (and a for a few silly pictures), just biking to meet a friend for coffee and a chat. I wore my new nutcase forest green helmet, yellow vintage shorts and my sheer gray, yellow and turquoise top from a boutique in Spain.
I live for fresh fruit and veggies (clearly that means I am living in the wrong state). I love going to the farmers market and smelling the ripe tomatoes or picking fresh herbs from the garden. There is nothing that tastes better to me than perfectly ripe produce. So in celebration of summer and the abundance of goodness available, I decided to make salsas. The first one I will put up is a mango salsa. Although I really like supporting local produce, mango is one of those treats that I have to indulge in. Hope you enjoy!
3 Ripe juicy mangos
2 small really juicy limes
1/2 cup of cilantro chopped
1/2 a cucumber mostly peeled
1 fresh jalapeno (or 2)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt to taste
This is so simple, dice the mangos, cucumber and jalapenos. Chop the cilantro and mix all together, then add the lime juice and olive oil, and salt to taste. I would usually let it sit overnight to mix all the flavors together. Eat with as a topping on a salad, on top of grilled salmon, with lime and chili tortilla chips, or just grab a fork!
Happy Fresh Veg Season!
Day one of the Mighty Swell Summer in the City Sale is done! Thanks to everyone that came out today, and of course a big thanks to Meghan and Rae for their amazing work. There will be more merchandise put out tomorrow, and still plenty of beautiful clothing and accessories to find their way to that perfect someone. The shop is open from 10-7. Yay!
Happy Mid-July. There is a lot that I love about this month, biking, thunderstorms, my birthday (!) and this year to add to the list, the Mighty Swell Summer in the City Sale.

I have been loving these beautiful summer days filled with sunshine, especially when I can be out and about around town in vintage frocks. Alea and I took full advantage of a local Italian place's half price wine this week. It was fun to dress up, go for a walk, drink a bottle of wine that we had never tried before, and catch up on life's happenings. I wore: vintage yellow dress, thrifted leather clutch, vintage leather peep toes, and my grandmother's gold watch.
