Simple Delights

{Savoring the last bowl of cherries this season}
I sure will miss this sweet summer delight.

{Delicious afternoon treats - hazelnut banana and blueberry earl grey tarts}

It's becoming our weekend tradition to stop by for scrumptious deserts and freshly baked baguettes at a little bakery near Logan Square called La Boulangerie

{The prettiest set of push pins for my inspiration board and a dreamy post card I bought for framing}

These ceramic push pins were just too cute to pass up. They look like wedding cake flowers and come in the most clever packaging. It would make a perfect little gift for someone with an office.

I stumbled upon this lovely post card at one of the book stores back in Kaunas (my native city). The blooming meadows remind me of Lithuanian country side and the summers I spent at my grandparents' farm growing up. I love using pretty post cards or even illustrated calendar pages as art. All you need is a simple frame (it's even better if it's matted) and you might be the only one who will know it wasn't an actual print.
