vintage levis 501s

My mom drove up for a quick visit last weekend and brought approximately 10 pairs of perfectly distressed and ripped up Levi’s 501 jeans for me. Some belonged to my brother, and fit a little loose, like perfectly fitting boyfriend jeans {although I’m thinking about changing the name to “brother jeans” :}, and the others were my mom’s and fit a little tight, and all high-wasted like we wore them in the ’90s, and sorting through them made me just giddy! Nowhere else could I find such perfectly distressed and worn Levi’s that will fit the way I want them to and for free! I must be the exact size between my mom and my brother, which also makes me giggle.

casual beachy rustic living room - outliers book

I started reading Outliers the other day by Malcolm Gladwell and just cannot put it down. It’s incredible!

{In my living room, sitting in the chair by the fireplace… with my sad Fiddle Fig Leaf I haven’t found a tree that loves this corner yet.}

dog heaven

This very sweet package including the book Dog Heaven, a thoughtful letter, and sweet little LeRoy stickers in loving memory of my very favorite dog on the planet, arrived last week from a long-time reader and super creative Amanda Rose. I can’t bring myself to read it just yet, but soon. Oh how I miss him. Thank you so much Amanda <3

ecco domani merlot

Since I partnered with Ecco Domani, I have also fallen IN LOVE with their Merlot. That’s no joke. I’ve shared a bottle with my piano teacher and my neighbor, but this was Thursday evening, a little pre-Friday celebratory wine goodness.

***AND speaking of my collab w/ Ecco Domani … we have AN AMAAAAAAAAZING giveaway coming up later this week… LIKE YOU WILL DIE it’s so amazing… I can’t WAIT to share it with you!!!

    How very thoughtful of Amanda Rose, the stickers are precious.

    I am curious about the direction of sun in that corner where your fiddle leaf is…I am an avid gardener and would love to give you a couple of suggestions if you would like.

    The Muse dress is so pretty, the colors are vibrant.

    Have a wonderful evening! 🙂

      HI Mary! I’d love some plant/tree tips! I had a eucalyptus that didn’t like that corner either. I think the heater also plays a big role in killing them, so I’ve started misting as well as watering them. Still, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Thanks! xo

        Good Morning! I have one idea so far for that corner..have you ever grown an Olive tree? (Olea is the technical name) That may just be suitable for that space. There is a lot of info on that, so you can investigate if it sounds doable.

        I have a Dracaena that has grown from a small table plant to a very large floor plant and it is quite stunning…that is also a thought.

        Ficus species (fiddle leaf fig included) can be a bit touchy to grow, and they really don’t like too much water…mist sparingly.

        Just a few thoughts, let me know what you think. 🙂
