Well, hello, July. Where did you sneak up from?
Somehow nearly eight months of shopkeeping have blown by. One of the best parts of this new adventure? The chance to collaborate with passionate, talented folks.
Enter the ladies behind Whisked! and Goldilocks Goodies, two of my favorite bakers. We joined forces for a splendid little pie party at Salt & Sundry this weekend. (More party pics on the way!)
Our friends from Cordial poured crisp Riccardo Prosecco, and we mixed up a batch of Red, White & Blue punch, a simple summer cocktail created by another of my favorite collaborators, Room 11's Dan Searing.
