It feels like summer here in Austin and a little burst of color seems in order.

four things: mugs and cookies

I always fall for a pretty mug. Pair them with cookies and you have perfection!

If you’re looking for a good read to go along with your coffee or tea break may I recommend light and airy Summer at Tiffany or for something darker The Mastermind.

four things

As spring turns quickly into summer here in central Texas, I find myself thinking about adding plants and flowers to my usual mix. I’m trying to decide what kind of citrus tree to get for our porch/outdoor dinning room.

This is what I would take on a trip to Tillery Street Plant Co. today:

PS. Agent Nateur was the first natural deodorant I tried when I decide to make the switch. I was instantly hooked. It has a delicate scent, lovely packaging, and best of all it, does its job! I can’t say enough good things about it.

Chipper Things

The excellent illustrator, short gal, and my fellow Austin-dweller, Becky Simpson, has just launched an adorable online store called Chipper Things!

Chipper things has lots of personality and stationary goods. Two things I love! It all came about from her year-long residency with Adobe, which is very cool! In her own words, “My hope is that Chipper Things becomes known for its clever, colorful and playful art and sentiments. I have big dreams for it and I hope the momentum from the launch is only the beginning.” 

I picked out things that share a very monochromatic vibe, because that’s what I do. You can find lots more chuckles and colors over at Chipper Things.
