Weekend greetings friends! I was so happy to read all your comments on my previous post, I so appreciate your kindness and support. I feel reenergized having stepped away for a few days. Last night I attended an event at Sunset Magazine, one of my favorite publications, and was happy to taste some wine and tour their test and show kitchens. It’s inspiring to surround yourself with creative ideas and people!

Also I woke up to little blossoms on some of the trees in my neighborhood. It happens a little earlier for those of us in the warmer states but it’s one my favorite things, showing us that spring is on its way. This weekend it’s another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’, here are some favorite spaces and projects spied around the web!

Tour Kristen’s black, marble, and gold kitchen remodel at Bliss at Home, beautiful!
