packing my bags and hanging out a happy shingle

I’ve been blogging here at Lemondrop Vintage for several years- and I have loved just about every minute.  As my life has become more crowded with sippy cups and finger paints it has been harder to stick to the original focus I had for this blog, a celebration of vintage clothing and home.  Life encroaches on blog posts in non-vintage centric ways quite often lately and it has made me think… like little boys a blog needs room to grow. So- instead of squishing myself and my writing into a self-made box I am branching out to another address on the internets. I hope you will join me at inourhappyplace.com where I will still share my vintage obsessions but with a dash of real life, hobbies, and happy pursuits thrown in. To celebrate I have some interviews with artists and giveaways lined up for the fall!  You will see other posts before the end of the month, but please join me at my new home too. I will be excited to welcome you!

I hope to see you soon @

Its body weight is not the right proportion to its wingspan. Ignoring these laws, the bee flies anyway.”

Actual bee and flower in my own backyard to go with one of my favorite happy quotes.

happy sunday brunchy, le toast

“One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

strawberry covered french toastAlmost every weekend of my childhood my dad would make french toast. We called it le toast en francais so we felt fancy. It was my grandmother’s recipe and so sweet you didn’t need any syrup added. I can never manage to make it myself, perhaps it’s my reluctance to add copious amounts of white sugar… so I make a lighter version with fruit and powdered sugar. I get no complaints from the little man.

sunday brunchy! banana blueberry muffins for my muffin man

Sunday breakfast is a slower, more relaxed breakfast than the rest of the week. In an effort to expand upon the fam’s favorites we had banana blueberry muffins sprinkled with powdered sugar instead of our usual boring blueberry muffins. They were easy & a hit, even got my little man out of the wading pool for a quick snack. Happy Sunday!

We add fresh bananas and blueberries to our fave organic muffin mix, and viola, happy small man.
