Fun Finds/FFF – Flowers in Nike sneakers and Date night

Happy Fun, Free Friday lovelies!

Fun Finds

Sometimes you gotta just grow it.  Even if it means growing it in a classic, but unexpected high top sneaker.  I thought this was such an interesting way to see a functional, athletic piece in a whole new light.  Daisies, orchids, and dandelions dot a discarded sneaker and make it a whole lot more beautiful!  It’s a little food for thought the next time you are looking for a planter (now imagine an orchid growing out of a pair of sleek fairy tale Prada pumps!)

Fashion Highlight: Kate Spade New York / JACK SPADE ♥ GapKids

Kids have it good these days.

They have books that talk back to them.  They get to befriend and instantly talk to friends across the globe.  They are using those little fingers to speedily take and share photographs with their friends.

Now they also get more and more designer duds with the launch of Kate Spade New York ♥ GapKids today.

In the Kitchen: Provençal Seafood Stew

Provençal fish stew recipe

With cooler weather comes warmer and heartier foods. What foods do you like to eat when it’s cold outside? I grew up with a lot of Asian stews as well as good ‘ol Campbells soups (chicken and stars or New England clam chowder please!) I loved a nice hearty beef stew with chunks of carrots […]

Art/Fashion Highlight: Izak Zenou Illustrations
