Grilled octopus is probably one my all time favorite dishes, but somehow I have never made it at home. I did find this recipe on The Splendid Table the other day and can't wait to try it out.
My amazingly talented friend Christi Jay just launched her new line of natural, handmade, hand dyed one of kind pieces called Made of Dreams Designs. I'm already picturing myself flowing around the house in the Moon Rays gown. Oh and did I mention she makes rad jewelry too? What doesn't this girl do...seriously.
I have an ugly pergola (if you can even call it that) off the back of my house. It's pretty much just a bunch of rotting wood held to the house by nails, yes NAILS, topped with corrugated plastic roofing. It's super ghetto, all I can think about when I'm in the back yard is what I can replace it with. After tons of research I think I've found the perfect solution in a simple modern wood structure that would work well with the Spanish style of the houses' exterior. I'd also love to replace my single door with glass french doors, but it's just a rental...which doesn't really mean anything to me so I'll probably end up doing that some time down the road.
If you need to figure out whats going on in fashion or just wanna see my cute little sister modeling and stuff check out her new blog Middle Sister General, and while you're there pop on over to her Etsy shop by the same name and buy some well curated vintage. End of shameless plug.
