Happy 4th of July!

It's all red, white and blue....are you showing your colors?

I love these little ikat bowls from Anthopologie.

NY Cheesecake at Grand Central Market.

Can you think of a better lunch than fresh guacamole and an ice cold beer?
I'm loving these chips from Trader Joe's.

Ready for the beach...

I loved the Martha Stewart Living cover this month...it has been on top of the magazine pile ever since it arrived.

  11. Great pics! I also bought the Martha Stewart July issue, which I haven't done in a long time but the cover caught my eye and I couldn't resist! I love, love your area for towels and bags on hooks, can't wait to do the same in our house when our remodel is done. Happy Summer!
