Ahhhh, to have organized jewelry for a beautiful display! I have fun things today like my new reasonably priced jewelry rack, a delicious Spring salad, iconic local shop and a casual dress you can throw on all summer. Be sure to check out Annie and Cindy’s favorite things, too.
It feels good to be settling in our new home. Someone asked how I was “repurposing” our San Francisco apartment furniture. Well, the pieces I love, like the antique bookcase that we bought while living in Paris (that used to be in our dining room) is now in what feels to me our huge bedroom.
The movers broke the glass front on the left, in addition to a few other things. But we bought moving insurance. There are some affiliate links at no extra charge to you. Thank you!
1. Hanging Organizer Creates Jewelry For A Beautiful Display
It’s so nice to be able to see all my necklaces displayed on this hanging jewelry organizer. For $25 it’s pretty and sturdy! My daughter made the bowl that holds my bracelets.
2. Mrs. Howard Shop
I love the decorator Phoebe Howard. So it was fun to go to her beautiful shop in nearby Jacksonville Beach. Take a look at the shop!
Mrs. Howard, as her clients call her, is known for soft blues and an upscale coastal feel. I loved everything but they have a great selection of fairly priced designer pillows and lampshades. And the staff was very friendly.

3. Pea, Mint and Prosciutto Salad
For dinner with Mercedes and Mark on Thursday, I took this Bon Appetit Arugula and Pea salad over to their house. The only things I did differently:
- add 1/2 tsp lemon zest to the dressing
- crisped the prosciutto over medium heat in a frying pan
- added a little shaved Parmesan
- skipped the fresh horseradish (I didn’t have any)
I will make it again! Check out my Salad Recipe Pinterest board.
4. Just Released Books That Have Caught My Attention
5. Summer Eyelet Shirtdress From Gap
This Gap eyelet shirt dress is good for just running around in the summer. It’s on sale ($56) and comes in different colors and in regular, petite and tall. I’m wearing a petite medium and may order it in the mineral color, too.
