More of My Favorite Things Today

20130303-061934.jpg The walk around the shop continues with goods that caught my eye. These John Derian postcards have such a great weight to them, and John’s choice of images is always top notch.

20130303-062300.jpg You know we love our good olive oil at Watson Kennedy! McEvoy Ranch makes some of the very best.

20130303-062500.jpg A jar of this walnut sage pesto in the cupboard at the ready is always a good thing. Toss with pasta and you are set for dinner.

20130303-062703.jpg I love carrying Boat Street Pickles. Seattle chef Renee Erickson, who is up for a James Beard award (go Renee!) has been pickling things at her restaurants for ages. You can now take that goodness home with you. Any or all of these are stellar on a cheese platter or good enough right out of the jar.

20130303-063138.jpg A little Belgian milk chocolate is always a good thing.

20130303-063345.jpg My friends in New York at Dempsey & Carroll have created a really cool ‘basic’ line, selling their cards & envelopes separately, so you can mix and match for stylish letter writing goodness.

Now off to the airport! Lots of fun stuff awaits in LA…
