wonder foodie: smitten with this kitchen

I have been wanting to make this tart ever since I saw this post two summers ago on Smitten Kitchen. The tart looked absolutely scrumptious and I would sometimes revisit the post just to see the mouthwatering photos of it. Silly, I know! But the occasion finally arose where the fruit was in season and I could buckle down and make it. Yes!

And the verdict? Deeeeelicious. This recipe will be one that I repeat! The combination of spicy gingersnaps and sweet nectarines with a creamy custardy filling is delightful and easy to make. I think I'll make it again this week for another potluck! Ooooh. Here's the finished product, hopefully it looks just as good as Deb's. I heart summer.

Okay okay, I know that this is a wedding photo, but I couldn't help it! What a gorgeous shot from the fantastically quirky and way talented Katie Sokoler of Color Me Katie. It's like a dream ...image via color me katie

blogger love: eat drink chic

Amy Moss has a sweet blog called Eat Drink Chic that is so inspiring and bright, and I've been smitten with it ever since coming across her inventive and impromptu wedding. It was so charming, and many of the ideas are perfect for any party, not just for nuptials!

And even though she's from the land down under and they're about to have their winter, she's made a free digital download for summer! Check out these sweet floral tags that you can use to label summer drinks, attach to gifts, or organize your crafty wares. They come in three designs. Love 'em! Have a great weekend!

linky loves: stationery

Loving me some paper goods today! Just thought I'd post some of my favorite images from stationery and design sites. I just took another letterpress class this past weekend, so this is very appropriate. More updates from that to come. Happy Wednesday, all!

a little soundtrack: a fine frenzy

Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy has the most amazing red hair - and how cute and vintage is she? Her song "What I Wouldn't Do" is so summery and fun. I just want to whistle along! And Alisons with one L are very unique, if I don't say so myself. Enjoy!
