What’s on your agenda?

Friday Faves 8.3

ONE studded edge bowl from Ankasa, $95; TWO Rae Dun cheese markers $35 at Nordstrom; THREE globetrotter calendar $20 at anthropologie; FOUR Thomas Paul ‘Moby’ Pillow $78 at Burke Decor; FIVE hand sculpted spoons $48 from Avesha Michael; SIX Thomas Paul bazaar side plates $34 from Burke Decor.

A splash of color and pattern for your Friday!  I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been trying hard to broaden my horizons when it comes to adding color into my home.  I used to be a very neutral, minimal kind of girl, but I’m realizing that adding those pops just intensifies the purity of the neutrals as well.  I hope you’re enjoying this journey for me!

This weekend, I plan to get SO much work done.  I have a lot of projects that are half started and were interrupted by a last minute trip to India, so I’m looking forward to picking them back up and finishing some things off.  Matty’s out of town and I am going to make myself a big bowl of this – a recipe my one of my favorite new bloggers.

What about you?  Any fun plans?

Have a HAPPY Friday guys!

Friday Faves 7.20

ONE traditional block printing in India is still huge, especially with the resurgence of the trend in apparel and home goods here stateside.  I picked up a couple pretty carved blocks for my own projects, $2.  TWO water buffalo run ramped in that part of the world, and are highly revered.  Their horns are used, just as every part of the animal is used after it dies naturally. I picked up these salad servers for their beautiful striations and natural coloring, $3. THREE bottle dye and tye dye techniques are all the rage right now, and with the importance that India plays in the garment industry, they’re keeping up with trend, $1. FOUR inlaid precious stone in white marble is what part of the Taj Mahal facade is adorned with.  A little trinket box using the same technique is the perfect memento, $18. FIVE I really just love elephants, and had to pick up a unique one to go on my bedroom shelves.  This guy was just $8 from a beautiful new home store called The Wishing Chair www.wishingchair.in coming soon!

 

Well guys, I’m back in action.  I was able to work a full day yesterday and today I’m on the party planning train for my husbands big  Bavarian themed 30th birthday party tomorrow.  I’m so excited to show you guys pictures next week of all the festivities, and boy, will it be festive.  We have everything from a traditional biergarten tent to a polka band to pretzels and wursts.  We’ll all be singing ‘ein prosit’ and clinking beer mugs in no time!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend lined up!  See you next week!

It’s Friday!  Do you have plans for the weekend? If you haven’t been following a long this week, I’m in India for work and am sharing some of my past posts which get the most feedback from readers.  I get a lot of questions about creating a casual, thrown-together weekend gathering with friends, and this is something I do quite often!  I just LOVE when friends drop in on a quiet summer evening and I always make sure to keep a few things on hand for just such an occasion. There are just a few tips I have for arranging a flavorful and diverse cheese plate for house guests. 

Use a variety of hard, semi-soft, and soft; aged and young.  Choose four – a semi-soft grass-fed cow’s milk cheese like gouda or cheddar, a hard italian cheese like parmesan or asiago, a pungent aged cheese like blue or roquefort, then a soft creamy cheese like chevre or brie.  Alongside the cheeses, serve a variety of textures and flavors from crisp fruit like apple or pear to soft tangy olives and everything in between.  I like offering my guests the opportunity to create many varied flavors to create a long and leisurely snacking evening.

Have a FLAVORFUL Friday and Weekend!

 

P.S. Things are going well here in India!  If you’re following a long on Instagram or Twitter ( both @houseofearnest) you’re seeing little snippets of my India adventures!  Be sure to follow – tomorrow I head to Agra to see the Taj!
