just a bit of eye candy for your tuesday. Im enamored with these beautiful dining spaces. Opulent and sophisticated but sill with a casualness about them that is truly lovely. Oh! and that bench.

lately I've been addicted to this little late afternoon snack. When I saw it first on one of my favorite food blogs MyNewRoots I was intrigued by the thought of the roasted grapes. They did not disappoint. And though I have not yet attempted the homemade ricotta (i've been using a very soft delicious goat cheese) one of these weekends I will be giving it a whirl.
But for now- It makes a most delicious snack. Ive even been saving a few of the grapes for my oats in the morning.
Recipe from MyNewRoots : Ricotta on Toasts with Roasted Fruit
1 pear, sliced
half a cup of grapes or so
coconut oil, melted
slices of your favorite crunchy bread
preheat oven to 405°
toss grapes & pear in oil to lightly coat. Roast with thyme sprigs 8-10 minutes until grape skins split/pears slightly caramelized.
Toast bread and spread with cheese. add roasted fruit, drizzle with honey, S&P and serve.

some very pretty things at the lovely danish based Noa Noa - For high summer (its the perfect collection title!).
they seem so glamours and speak of another time while still seeming fresh and modern. I would love to wear that first dress out on a warm summer night - perhaps a stroll down a long wooden boardwalk.......

and so i am back from my east coast adventure. Boxes filled with treasure and smiles all around. It was nice to be away but as always, it is nice to be home.
And what a welcomed sight it was to arrive and find my lemon tree FULL of blooms. their sweet smell has been floating through the doors and windows and I cant get that dreamy scent off my mind.
So, todays monday mood board is inspired by this ladened little tree on my patio.
