Ahh summer...

I've been busy getting ready for summer... at this point I'm just waiting for the weather to catch up!

I have some new items in my etsy store and will be adding to it over the coming days and weeks.  I found some more vintage selter bottles at the flea market and thought they would be fun on bar set-up for a summer bbq or cocktail party.

I've been looking for an easy and refreshing summer cocktail to serve this weekend and think I have found the perfect one...

Gin Rickey

  • Ice cubes
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • seltzer

Drop 3-4 ice cubes into a tall glass.  Squeeze in the lime and add the rind.  Add the gin and top off with chilled seltzer.

The Dwell on Design conference starts this Friday at the LA Convention Center with exhibitors, home tours, and educational seminars.  With a focus on modern living, the conference shares ideas for sustainable living, urban gardening, and features some great pre-fab homes to walk through.  Dwell is also sponsoring self guided tours of some fun modern homes in Los Angeles.  The picture above is from one of the homes featured in the Eastside Tour on Sunday... as of this morning tickets were still available.
