Pin Ups: My Favourite Things This Week

Pin Ups: Coffee Smoothies|

These three awesome coffee-based smoothie recipes are perfect for breakfast- they have fruit, protein, and that all-important caffeine hit. The coffee creamsicle one is my fave!

Pin Ups: Caramelized Peach & Oat Pancakes|

And while we’re talking about breakfast, these  peach and oat pancakes are so perfect for weekends.

Pin Ups: Fresh Tomato sandwich|

Another light meal would be these flavourful and fresh toasted tomato and cream cheese open face sandwiches– perfect for all those fresh tomatoes that are in season, and the cream cheese has added fresh herbs, if you have lots of those in your garden, too.

Pin Ups: Sewn Book Clutch|

I don’t sew, but if I did, I would be dying to make these  zipper book clutches. Maybe I’ll tap a sewing friend to make one for me- they look so awesome! And I feel would be very fun e-reader cases, too.

Pin Ups: Awesome kitchen|

I’m dreaming of redoing my kitchen, and this shot is so inspiring for me right now– I love how bright, fresh and casual it looks, and yet absolutely lovely. And the old-school green chalkboard wall! Love it.  I think this is pretty close to my ideal kitchen, assuming that there is a double oven somewhere just outside of this shot.

    Those pancakes look like a perfect breakfast… :-) I have a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, we love it for shopping lists – we just snap a photo of the chalkboard with our phone before we go shopping. And the stepkids love to draw on it, of course!

    Great pins once again. I need to catch up and start trying out these pins! Love the chalkboard wall… It looks really useful!

    Love your entire selection this week. We painted a purple chalkboard in our dining-room: one thing to be aware of, it creates a lot of chalk dust. I mean a lot. So something to think about before you plan for it. 😉

    we have a chalkboard centre pane on our wardrobe and while it was a pain to paint I have loved it ever since!
