Saturday Loves 20

Good Morning!

I sincerely hope that you’re doing well and ready for a terrific weekend!  

As for me, my weekend plans include celebrating my birthday at one of my favorite restaurants, power walking at The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, creating a new summer recipe (if all things go well, I’ll share it with you on Monday), and reading this new novel.   

Following are delightful links that have captivated and inspired me.  I hope they inspire you, as well.  Take care and enjoy your weekend!

Remarkably stunning!  Such a gorgeous image that brings to memory Vermeer’s Girl with a Red Hat oil painting which hangs at The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
