your essness,

thank you for the dee!
unfortunately the other 'loud' link is unavailable in this country? MJ? weird.

these are a series of random photos for you of my life as of late.
wishing it was last year all over again and you would be magically appearing tomorrow to celebrate your special day and your independence.

can't tell you how much that would rock my world.

i'm still deciding about this weekend...
to work?
or go chase peacocks around in Marin + eat something yummy in SF?
you know what's going to win.

happy canada day to you doll!

fuck 'em

yes please to bjork and a bird on your head!

all those lovely lunches at canal brought a smile to my face (and made me hungry!) something with bacon + arugula on it would hit the spot right at this moment.

here are a few other things as of late that are making me smile :)

nails from YSL spotted at my friend Amy Nadine's beauty blog
that i want to try and recreate on my fingers this weekend.

always, a bowl of ginger fish noodle soup from my local Viet +
of course, the wee Mouse.

and as i was leaving SLS's house after dinner the other night, she handed me a bag of lemons straight off her tree... how fantastic is that?!

listening to this to get in the mood for summer ( from the monk)
and reading this for giggles.

canal house


i would love to go and see her with you! in honour of that special day i will wear some kind of taxidermy bird on my head (preferably a small finch, but i know you are ever so fond of peacocks...)

i was just about to turn off the computer tonight when i found this lunch blog from the ladies at canal house. my how i love their cookbooks, and now i have a little noon time inspiration from them.
although i suppose if i was better stocked with foraged arugula, smoked wild salmon, and proper bacon there would be no room for lunch time dilemmas.

love to you

ps and you are absolutely right. she looks damned fine for 80!

a bjork moment for you

"we gutted my old celeste and replaced the notes with custom made bronze notes and made it midi-compatible so it could be played remotely by an ipad "

darling ess,
thinking we needed a musical interlude after all that hockey stress and tension.
sad it ended the way it did but i'm already thinking about next year.
peonies are all over the market reminding me of you.
p.s i'm wishing on a star to go see her show somewhere.

pink on the brain


there are always a few things on my lust list, and here are three.

first off, this pink sweater from a detacher. i fell HARD for this sweater when i was in new york. and now it's on sale. shoot. wanna buy a suite of prints???

second, this swimsuit. it's like it's made of sherbert and seaweed, and will make long lazy days on the dock at gambier even more perfect. from here. and i wanna meet the gal who goes snorkling in this bikini!

and last, a meatball sandwich from meat and bread. i mean, the hot turkey with zucchini pickles is pretty great, and don't get me started on the porchetta, but look at the colour of that sambal with my pink sweater? to die!

love from
sarah with an H

ps and this isn't pink, but one-for-one makes me happy.
