Recent Acquisitions: The Long, Hot, Summer Edition

Sunflower Sprouts

I first had these at Frontera Grill in Chicago and instantly fell in love. Sprouts in general are delicious but the flavor of sunflower sprouts is particularly delicious. Worth tracking down. They are as pretty as they are delicious.

These Striped Napkins

Came across these at West Elm recently, they were exactly what I was looking for in an everyday napkin.

Plum Caramel by Flora Confections [1]

A favorite vendor from Green City Market, this plum caramel confiture is so incredible. I would gladly eat it by the spoonful for dessert. It is incredible on top of vanilla ice cream. Go get some!

DIY Heirlooms

Why wait to inherit family heirlooms? Go buy them yourself. Summer is antique market season and I love shopping around looking for beautiful kitchen plates and serving pieces. Find a treasure, make a deal.

Rose Geranium Syrup [2]

Add some to sparkling water, whipped cream, whatever you like. Another great product from June Taylor.

Fruit Baskets [3]

I know these things are everywhere, but I love them. Your favorite fruit baskets transformed into beautiful porcelain objects. They still work great for holding fruit but are also nice as sculptures.

The Vegetarian Option [4]

I keep talking this cookbook up. I really love it. Everything from its weird design (it looks like it is from another time, or something) to the fabulous assortment of vegetarian recipes.

Thermal Pot [5]

I still can’t believe this thing was only $8 over at IKEA. Such good design—just odd enough.

Happy summer everyone!
