There hasn't been any Winston here for awhile, so I thought I'd just add this picture from last weekend when he insisted on coming along while I ran errands. He makes me laugh the way he sits in the front seat and is such a good little passenger.
I was a lucky winner last week! Lara of Piewacket, with a little help from Kiehl's had a giveaway earlier this summer, and I won quite the box full of treats. I've loved all the Kiehl's products I've ever tried, but they are a bit of a splurge. I regularly use their Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub, which, when used as a mask, makes your face so soft and smooth, just like a baby's bottom. I've hoarded a tube of it for longer than I care to admit. Thanks so much Lara! I feel so spoiled with all these great products. I think I will be using the tinted moisturizer as my daily foundation from now on, and I thought I was happy with my L'Oreal mascara, but this stuff is so great. And two lip balms! They make the best lip products. Lucky lucky me! If you've never been to Lara's blog, I suggest a visit. She's a professional photographer and amatuer billiards player. I am always inspired by her photos, and she shares some really lovely vintage finds and delicious foods.
Every morning I have to do my chores before leaving for work (except for the days Mr.HeyLucy does them for me). I throw scratch down for the chickens and fill their feed bowl. I make sure the water dish is full, since it is uses by dogs, chickens, and bees. The dogs get food and my vegetable garden gets watered too. All while looking Farmgirl chic. This is my version of fashion week.
It was really delicious. I used this recipe. The only changes I made were to eliminate the cherries, which would have been prettier, but I don't love them and didn't want to buy a whole jar knowing I would never use the rest. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter because vanilla is good, and I was surprised that it didn't call for it.
Sorry about that jumble below, I will have to fix that tonight for you so you can see the movie. Apparently, you can't do any fancy HTML stuff from the phone.
In the meantime, how about some pretty new wallpaper for your desktop? I love changing my wallpaper regularly, and Smashing magazine is one of my favorite sources for fun and creative wallpapers. I also love the new monthly wallpapers at Design*Sponge, and just downloaded this month's version in blue with the calendar. What about you? Do you have a favorite?
