peachy keen

Your comments yesterday made me very happy, pals! I almost wish I hadn't shown you my tattoo, because, wow, your imaginations might have come up with something way more hilarious than what it actually is (hey Sarah, Hello Kitty!). I will add to the "reveal" by sharing this tidbit with you: the illustration came from a book on magic. That's right. Magic! How Stevie Nicks of me!

It's amazing what a leisurely day can do, particularly when it's sunny outside. In the evening Geoff and I went out for groceries (TGIF, y'all) and on the way stopped at the thrift shop. Since I had bought him the gingham shirt, he wanted to buy me a present. I let him buy me the peachy, frothy, ruffled number above. I love it, especially now that it's all fresh and clean.

Geoff also drew on this pretty little milk glass mug for me this morning after blueberry pancakes. It has flowers and berries and a "G hearts A" on it. How did I get so lucky?

Now we are going to make sandwiches (prosciutto, fig spread, arugula, and pecorino cheese -- you should try it, unless you're a vegetarian!) and head down to see a movie.

Happy Valentimes!


  1. You look absolutely lovely in your gift from him & i adore that sweet cup. Happy Valentines!

  2. milk glass, pyrex, fireking ... love love love all that old retro kitchen ware ...

  3. i'm making a note of this sandwich combination. it sounds delicious and i think i need more sandwiches in my life.

  4. I love that colour on you! I also love that you said Valentimes!

    I have really been enjoying your blog lately, so I thought I should probably stop in and say hello.

    Thank you for sharing your tattoo with us, the fact that it came from a book on magic makes it that much better! Haha, I love it.

  5. very pretty blouse!
    sounds like a lovely day, indeed :)

  6. i love how casually he made that for you - too lucky!

  7. I love that mug! It's a stunner. I can't believe he just doodled that up for you: too sweet!
