an online shop turned pop-up shop out in the hamptons.
i'll take that brass greyhound and the over-dyed hot pink rug, thank you.
do you like seeing where people live as much as i do?
or am i weird?
i'm actually getting kind of frustrated with elle decor lately because they only show 2-4 photos from someones home. really? that's not enough. i don't think they've been enough as a whole lately, so they're on my s-list :)
this weekend i was stuck inside editing photos all weekend long. both days. just trying to get caught up. and i did... so it was worth it, but dang.
and it was such a glorious and hot weekend.
would have been better spent by the pool.
so husband perked me up by making dinner on saturday.
we refer to it as b-for-d. or breakfast for dinner.
we had pancakes and eggs and bacon.
except we put the bacon inside the pancakes
such as zees:
i saw this on pinterest.
the key tip we came away with: cook your bacon strips in a pan, or however you cook it i guess.... just pre-cook it in a separate spot from your pancakes. all the way. pancakes don't take long so it won't burn your bacon or anything.
#1-- it keeps the excess bacon grease away from what you're about to eat.
#2-- the raw bacon wouldn't cook fast enough on your griddle with the pancakes together.
the second tip: cook your bacon on the crispy side. it makes it easier to cut/eat when you finally get around to stuffing your face with your bacon pancakes.
but oh man.
it was like 2 good things coming together to make an even better little bacon-pancake baby.
i have this saved on pinterest too:
apparently it works with waffles, too.
did you get to enjoy being outside this weekend? i'm jealous.
going to use it reupholster my little 2-seater settee.
waverly's (sun and shade outdoor fabric)
'a new twist' in caviar.
i just got it in the mail yesterday.
over the internet it looks like mostly gray and cream and black.
but in real life that darker gray stripe is actually a dark brown espresso color.
and the outdoor fabric should hold up better in my kitchen.
i don't have kids, but i do have a husband and a big brown dog :)
i initially found it online and new i'd like it with my newly painted walls. the colors online always make me nervous so i ran up to joann's where they had it in real life that i could touch. and feel. and hold in my hands. and the colors? loved them even more in person because i could actually see that brown stripe.
i could have just purchased it at joann's while i was there but it was $49.99 a yard. i did have a coupon that could have brought the price down to $19.99 which would have meant:
a total of $79.96 plus tax for 4 yards.
i knew i could sleuth out better.
went back online and found it on amazon and ebay, both listed for $22.99 a yard. not any better. amazon did have free shipping but ebay did not.
