Local Delights

We have a great magazine in Seattle called just that Seattle Magazine. A thick, flashy, must-read, covering local happenings, art & culture, food, fashion & design.

So fun to see our boots as part of a lovely photo shoot with the headline: “Fashion Forecast. Spring runway spoke to our Pacific Rim sensibilities, with Japanese inspired shapes, graphic brights and stripes that nod to the city’s Scandinavian heritage. (Yep that would be us!).

Furthermore: The tall Ilse Jacobsen rain boots are available in a rainbow of colors from local e-tailer Splendid Avenue, for a dose off style and comfort.

A big thank you to Seattle Magazine and its well respected Style Editor Ali Brownrigg, a Seattle Design Mover & Shaker!

Also easy to like the food at the newly opened local Seattle restaurant Tanglewood Surpreme — a tiny, friendly seafood bistro earning great reviews by picky food critics.

Hubby took me there for my birthday last week and OH MAMA the food was A. M.A. Z.I.N.G. Fresh, local seafood with a modern, unique twist. One local food reviewer said he “did not want to share the name of the restaurant to keep it a local secret for the few. But sadly he felt he had to — the food is that good”.

Finally, I have to laugh at a myself. I can get ridiculously giddy happy over the smallest things. Yes the Arco lamp (see previous post) will be nice and the an updated kitchen will make me so happy but yesterday I found a new little bestie — and this one is for my kitchen drawers. A “Forma” stainless “over the cabinet” hook (no screws) to hang kitchen towels, pot holders, etc.

You see, I tend to not like racks for any kinds of towels. I go bananas if towels are not straight. (Yes I know… some issues there….). Hooks are perfect and towels get to freely hang straight (more forgiving in my opinion). And this hook I can move around in the kitchen. Who knew a $3.99 find could put such a grin on my face. Make for great socking stuffers too. Functional design rocks!

Wishing you a delightful week.
