Loo Loves I Outstanding in the Field, Ruffles and Sweet Words

Guess what.....it's sunny outside!!! Whew-whoooo!!!! Yay for that! All this sun has me thinking summer, so when I ran across this today, I nearly fell out of my chair with excitement. Mark my words...if this happened in our sweet town, I would single-handedly pack the table. Without further ado, Outstanding in the field. There was one at Smith-Berry Winery in 2007. I think it is high time we bring this back to the bluegrass.

So what's up with all these long tables? From their sweet website :

Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure - literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 we have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum. Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.

Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and generally prepared by a celebrated chef of the region. After a tour of the site, we all settle in: farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners sharing the long table.

Changing pace a little:

This weekend I was really bummed about not being in need of a shower curtain. If you've been in my bathroom, you know the shower is defined by a glass wall....no curtain. Surely you understand my heartache when I came across this sweet curtain from Urban Outfitters. They do, however, have a matching duvet cover.....so maybe, just maybe I can get some ruffled goodness in my life soon :)

I've been working on some dIY projects this week - trying to get my living space a little more together....since I do live here. And I've been looking for all sort of fun, encouraging art. Love this poster from Dear Coleen's Etsy Shop. That is SO me.

I also ADORE this - I just want to give it to everyone I know. From Jessica Gonacha's Etsy store. Are you kidding me with this cuteness? AMAZING! From Studio Mela's Etsy shop. LOVE!
