Color Block Polished Nails

You are never to old to play with color.  Color is the new black.  That is what I've been saying all summer long.  Lately, I've been a little more adventurous, trying out the color blocking trend on my nails.  I started with the coral and navy shown above. One important thing to keep in mind with this trend is to color block with colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. Without even knowing it, I found out Kristin was doing the same.  I caught this pic via our LoveFeast_Table Instagram account.  Sometimes even BFFs are … [Read more...]

Garden Porch Whimsy ~ Thrift Haul

On of my favorite things about scouring junk shops, thrift stores and antique shops is finding that unique piece that makes you smile.  This little turtle guy is one of those things.  Truth is I don't even know for sure what it is.  Do you?  I just know to me this mesh and metal turtle felt garden-y, whimsical and happy.

Sure, there is always something to work on.  Do you spy with your eye my not yet planted Dalia?  It's been … [Read more...]

The waves and beach are great for boogie boarding. The occasional wild pony is part of … [Read more...]

LoveFeast Family Beach Week At Ocean City

The LoveFeast Family Beach Week was just perfect!  Our Brek Family of 6 road tripped it from the Minny-Apple to B'more to celebrate the Pots' oldest sons' graduation from high school.  Even though we have been Family Friends for 18 years, it was great to see our whole families instantaneously re-connect after 2 years!  We arrived just in time to help with the last minute prep for a Vintage Americana Graduation Party, before enjoying a week of rest at Ocean City, Maryland. After the party we headed to the beach.  Even though it … [Read more...]
