You may have seen the Instagram eye candy produced by England’s Julia by the Sea, but have you noticed her perfectly crafted tea pics? So lovely, they have this coffee-lover tempted to brew up a pot of earl gray.

She was asked to create a brand identity for Sneaky Veg – a blog by a mom named Mandy, whose mission is to get her children to eat more fruits and vegetables.

I’m driving a minivan around San Francisco today, which is quite silly for someone who’s really better suited to a sub-compact (how I get myself into these things is beyond me…). So I’ll play something energizing today to give me the will to parallel park. Wish me luck… Loud Places by Jamie xx (featuring Romy) from the album In Colour, 2015.
One more from last week’s featured artist, Vanessa McKeown. This time around, it’s a bit of whimsy in the form of spinning painted fruit. Yes, it really is. Enjoy & Happy Friday!!!

I love creating all things colorful, usually from everyday objects being used in unusual ways. Sprinkles make me very happy.
With my mind on the very real possibility of being able to dig in the dirt soon – and actually enjoy fresh air without the protection of my down coat, I’m in a pretty darn good mood. Ergo, today’s perky ode to joy. Ah, spring, I’ve missed you. Welcome back. Happiness by Goldfrapp from the album Seventh Tree, 2008.

Since it’s “Maison” week on the blog, I thought I’d feature a song discovered along the way. A friend and I were shopping at Merci in Paris’ Marais one Saturday night, when the champagne began flowing. Well, who can resist that? So we settled in to people watch the fabulous folk attending the posh design week event (most of whom were actually invited, which – technically – we were not). Today’s track was part of the hipster playlist. Life Changes by Rose Smith from the album Dawn Raiding, 2002.
