Queenie's Treasury

Good morning, my lovelies! It's a gorgeous, crisp Saturday morning here in New York - and, perhaps even more exciting than the weather: I bought my first ramps of the season this morning!

I made it to the Greenmarket by eight o'clock, and by eight-o'-five I had two bunches of those babies in my hot little hands. As I type, I'm rendering some maple bacon in which to cook about a third of my haul. (Pickling will come later in the season.) In the meantime, let's get down to Treasury business!

First up, some truly adorable pillows from MissMosh, a cute Etsy shop. I'm particularly taken with the chevron pillow, and am seriously considering ordering one in blue or coral for my living room armchair. Can't get enough of zigzags right now!

Next up, the gorgeous home of actress Julie Bowen (from Modern Family), decorated by her sister, the talented LA-based designer Molly Luetkemeyer. I love the house's modern, unstuffy feel, especially the use of color throughout. I could live here, for sure. And that bathroom? I die.

Finally, from Design Crush, an awesome collection of signage photography, including one with a quote from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, one of my all-time favorite movies. These photos are forlornly beautiful, each nodding gently to a more prosperous era. And, you know...pancakes!

I love the picturre form Julie Bowen's house. It really makes me want to paint my offic wall a quirky color. Looking at a wall like that every day would make me very happy!

I know...that house is TO DIE FOR. I love the idea of painting the back of a built-in bookcase a fun color. It adds such a nice pop.
