happy friday + truck along...


Happy Friday! Today I'm leaving you with a snapshot of my recent farmer's market wild rose bouquet. I love shaped vases because they're so quirky and make even the simplest of flowers look great. Just a reminder that the Four Seasons, Good Reason plates are only available till the end of the month. All proceeds are being donated to Haiti.

Finally, congrats to Stephanie T. of Louisville, Kentucky for being the winner of the Oh Joy/Kate Spade giveaway. Thanks so much to everyone who responded to the survey–your answers were so helpful for us! {And most of you picked lemon yellow as the Oh Joy color! Fun!} Have a great weekend all!

bread heaven...


Dear Con Pane,

I've touted your glorious abilities in bread-making before, but now I really know the power of your abilities. I could cuddle up with your cinnamon buns on any given Sunday, and I'd gladly use your Pane Ciccolata {chocolate bread} as a pillow for a restful slumber. Just in case you didn't know it before, I love you a lot. I'm scared to say this {but I believe it to be true}, you've got the best freshly baked bread this Happy Lady has ever had.

Yours in carb heaven,
Happy Lady

{japanese inspiration}: polka dots!


Last week, I took a quick trip to my local Japanese grocery store to satisfy a massive sushi craving and found myself engrossed in their bookstore. I've always love the simple, yet sweet, elements of Japanese design and found myself suffering from heart palpitations after coming across this adorable book. Dot Sweets by Ricca Fukuda is filled with various desserts all decorated with and formed into...polka dots! I can't read a lick of it, but I can guarantee you a polka-dotted meal {while wearing my polka-dotted helmet} is in my near future.
