The Blush List – SF Inspired

Knitting // The cold wind in San Francisco made me feel silly for not packing a warm cowl in my suitcase! The avery and anouk cowl designs from Quince & Co. are stunning.

Crochet // I couldn’t get enough of the plants, flowers, and greenery in SF. This crochet planter cover by Belle Fleur de Lis is so lovely! I love all of her beautiful crochet work.

Etsy // A sweet, block printed sweater journal from Upper Tiny. I love any city that allows me to wear sweaters in May!

Art // I experienced Blue Bottle Coffee for the first time at the Ferry Building location last week and savored every delicious sip. I purchased a few bags of beans so I can brew a cup of Blue Bottle at home! Now I need to invest in a french press. Illustration by Lan Truong.

Style // This outfit from Cuillere a absinthe is my ideal outfit for the chilly weather in SF last week! Good walking shoes and lots of warm layers for when the weather changes quickly. Next time I visit I will be prepared. :)

Food // One of my favorite breakfasts was from Cowgirl Creamery. I tried the poached egg over grits. I loved it so much that I really want to recreate it at home! This recipe for a poached egg over polenta with olive oil pesto from theKitchn looks like a great option!

Happy Sunday!

These finds are inspired by my trip to San Francisco last week. I had such a great time! It really is a beautiful city and I can’t wait to visit again. The combination of delicious food, beautiful weather, and gorgeous scenery made for a week filled with great memories.

Upon arrival, Texas greeted me with open arms, severe humidity, and an unfortunate case of allergies. Starting a new week with a stuffy head isn’t exactly ideal. Hopefully this congestion will go away soon. Until then, bring on the tea and going to bed early!

How was your weekend? Are you starting any new projects this week? I would love to see!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

  9. I just discovered your blog from a post on Jenny of Elefantz blog…I love to knit but I’m not very good, I can however crochet, been doing that for 56 years, LOL. However, the reason I’m commenting today is concerning your Poached egg over Grits choice and I honestly thought that my hubby and I were the only ones who put their soft boiled or poached eggs over grits!!! I need to try the recipe with the Olive oil Pesto though, it looks so scrumptious. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful pieces, the adorable journal, way cute…and of course, the new knowledge that other folks like eggs on their grits, LOL. Hugs… (yes, I’m a hugger, it’s okay if your not*wink*)

  10. I also meant to ask you if you had cooked grits before…I’m assuming you have because you are in Texas, so I will just add that along with the poached or soft eggs over grits, my hubby adds salsa and Franks Red Sauce and stirs it all up, LOL. I prefer it to look a little prettier in the bowl myself! Hugs…

  17. Adam Walsh also made some digs about Cher immediately, branding
    the woman “moody and miserable”, that is rather
    unprofessional via one of the X Factor judges. The most recent “X Factor”
