Friday Five: A Bashful Return

First, how embarrassed am I that it’s been at least a couple of weeks since I last updated the blog? So much has happened in just a few weeks, but I promise I’m going to try my darndest to update more frequently. For starters, we painted our living room — finally. Some of my lack of posting has just been due to a lack of projects and progress to post about. But mostly, it’s been distractions. So, my apologies.

Now, back to the Friday Five (a week where I finally pinned enough at my regular volume to write one!)

1. This recipe from The Kitchn

I love pizza. I love thin, crispy, flavorful pizza. While not exactly a pizza, this Three Cheese Tomato Tart is about as close as you can get, and it looks amazing. Ripe tomatoes? Puff pastry? Cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan? And while this is a slight cheat — a recipe that was originally posted last August and included in a recent collection of summer vegetable recipes — it made my mouth water this week.

2. The tiles in this Mykonos hotel

The San Giorgio hotel looks like the perfect background to a cozy, peaceful, lazy vacation. These tile floors are amazing, whether in the bathroom or the bedroom.

3. The wall color in this Denver bungalow

It’s Scotch Lassie by BEHR, and it’s delicious, especially with all those white and blue accessories.

4. This painting by Canadian artist Mirjana Gotovac

Since we finally painted our living room, I’ve been on an art kick. With a bigger house than before comes more walls, and the need for more art. I’m especially fond of paintings. I bought one this week — my first, what an adult I am! — which I’ll showcase next week. But I really loved this original oil painting done with a palette knife — it looks like poppies on a spring day. Or maybe balloons.

5. The eclectic vintage style of this nursery

I love the whole vintage cottage chic shabby look, but I’m not brave or dedicated enough to pull it off throughout my whole house. Um, I’m also married. To a man. So I don’t think it would fly anyway. But how darling is this commitment in a little girl’s room? Between the crib netting (sure, a dust-attractor, but looks great in this photo), the unexpected wall art, the little Marakesh-style lounging area in the corner and the quaint green dresser, this photo is totally swoon-worthy. I totally want to be kiddie BFFs with the little Miss who lives there.

This weekend, I was originally supposed to hang out with a friend, but she came up with unexpected family plans. So I expect lots of random lounging, and perhaps some picture hanging. What are you doing this weekend?
