Loving this diy project on 100 Layer Cake. It involves $2 and $4 glass bubble balls from CB2 and fishing line. Ok, maybe its a little more involved than that, but it seems pretty straight forward directions-wise and I want to make one to hang over my kitchen table! Instructions here.

watermelon bombe

Nothing says summer like watermelon, and what if it was a watermelon/sorbet/ice cream combo that looks like a half watermelon that you can slice? What?! I know. Kind of fun! Directions here.

white on white

Crisp refreshing whites. Gorgeously simple room from Masseria: The Farmhouses of Puglia.
Love how cooling the stucco and marble is, especially combined with minimalist white textiles. The look is spare, but luxurious as the same time. Spotted on Design*Sponge.

ahhh, summer

Saturday afternoon we had an amazingly relaxing lunch and cocktails outside at the Inn on Castle Hill in Newport, RI. Great people/boat watching.

independence week

The long weekend stretched into this week, our holiday culminating in the U2 concert at Soldier Field. Awesome, of course.

dark n' stormy

Chicago skyline yesterday, from the Chicago Tribune. It looks like a scene from a Harry Potter movie.
