Links I Love Week 31

Shop Left Bank Paris Apartment Print Here

It is officially August and Summer is in full force. I have enjoyed filling a basket at the farmer’s market and making meals with fresh ingredients at home. I have been working on editing new Italy prints and my gallery wall is coming together. You can see a preview of Italy and watch this link for more images to be added. I also put a few iPhone cases in the shop. I have a few more fun products to add to the shop for the holiday so stay tuned!!

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.
