I love to share new treasures with you guys and it’s not always about quilting. This month I’ve picked out some of my current favorite things that I hope you’ll enjoy. (It’s kind of like sharing new finds with your best friend!)
Peaches are still in season, and I made the most wonderful peach crisp using using this recipe: Gluten Free Peach Crisp with Salted Coconut Milk Caramel. Monique at Ambitious Kitchen has a wide variety of recipes on her blog, and this is going to be one of my summer favorites. It was sweet and nutty and kind of healthy for a dessert! I didn’t have time to make the salted caramel, and it was still delicious. Remember, I’m not a food photographer, but here is what my version looked like:
I love to get surprises in the mail, and for the past two months it has come in the form of the Quilter’s Candy Box. This is a subscription-based service that I treated myself to, and I went for the 3-month option. I can’t wait to see what I’ll be getting in September. It’s so much fun to open a box of carefully selected quilting goodies! Below, you can see the awesomeness that was in July’s box.
This summer, I discovered Karina – The Original Easy Dress. I don’t normally like to order clothing without trying it on first, but I heard great things about this company. It was a score; this dress is SO comfortable! The style that I purchased, Penelope, fits great and has pockets (which I love). So much so, I decided to buy one for my daughter, Kelly, too!
I’m in the middle of reading The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks. This is a Civil War novel based on a true story that took place in Franklin, Tennessee in 1864. I’m not only being entertained, I’m learning about our history, too. It’s a really good read!
Last year while traveling in Norway, I discovered the delightful world of Tilda, founded by Norwegian designer Tone Finnanger. She produces, among other things, fabric that is whimsical and romantic in a beautiful array of color. You’ll love her blog, Tilda’s World; it’s absolutely delightful. Her newest fabric line, Harvest, can now be found in the United States at The Intrepid Thread (online).
Note: My monthly favorites are not sponsored by anyone. These are picked by me “just because”. They are something I would tell my friends about and that definitely includes you! Do you have any favorites you’d like to share?
Have a wonderful, inspired day!
