It is late and I am quite tired, but I wanted to wish you all a lovely weekend! I will be camping in our beautiful Northwest scenery in the company of good friends, spending time with my toes in the river. What about you?

When illustrator Camilla Engman was vacationing in France earlier this month, she took these photos of a town preparing for a party. Aren't they beautiful? I would be quite happy if cities in America did something like this.
I am continuously in awe of everything that Anna Bond designs, but these Heirloom Recipe Card Boxes might just be my favorite creation yet. Each box is handcrafted from trees that were destined for landfills through a 3-month process, then screen-printed with two different design options. For a baker like myself, this would be one of the best gifts I could think of. ($120, available for pre-order)
Tomorrow we are heading out to go camping for the first time in a really, really long time and I am bursting with excitement. If all goes well, I think I might have to squeeze in one more camping trip before the summer is over.

Totally loving this studio that Bloesem recently featured, especially the one above. I had never really thought of the color combination of yellow and black for inside the home, but this makes me really consider it. (See also: Studio Aandacht)
...without black and white film. It's a color combination I so frequently post about, but oh well. Sometimes repetition is a good thing.

Ah, I'm glad the weekend is finally here. It's been a rather tough week, so I am looking forward to spending time with friends and just lounging around the house. And baking, something with chocolate and peanut butter perhaps?
What are your plans for the weekend? I always like to hear.

I love clocks. I really do. I don't know what it is about them, but I'm always yearning to buy more. I tend to lean more towards antique ones, but modern ones are fabulous too. The way into my heart? Just buy me a big beautiful clock and I'm yours.

of bakeries and old trailers- since I saw this post on Oh Joy I haven't stopped dreaming about my own bakery. Especially one inspired by the colors and interior of a 1964 restored vintage Shasta airflyte trailer. Perhaps someday my dream might become a reality. Perhaps. (see: Enjoy Cupcakes.)

Today I am celebrating my official twenty-eighth birthday, but I wanted to at least get one post in today. Also, I wanted to say a "thank you" for all the birthday wishes- you people are the best. Happy Birthday to all of you that share your birthday with me (and a very merry unbirthday to the rest!)
