Most Lovely Things Kitchen

Friday Link Love – Here are a few of my favorite new things I discovered this week or have been meaning to share for a while now.  And when I say new, I mean like I discovered it on instagram a few hours ago.

Vampyrex – Esther Lee collects and sells vintage Pyrex and displays it beautifully in her Brooklyn home.  I asked her if it would be okay if I stopped by for a visit to see it in person.  She said yes!

I love The Little Book of HYGGE.  It describes perfectly every feeling I have about home and living.  Madeline has been talking about it for a while and I have to admit I had never even heard the word until last year when she came home from Study Abroad.  I’m big on cozy lighting, candle light and a roaring fire all the while a storm is raging outside.  I had no idea that this is what they call Hygee.  When Madeline went back to school after winter break I sent her a Salt Lamp to get her through the long winter.  Candles, twinkle lights and a salt lamp all seem very Hygge to me.

Homesick Candles – Everyone knows that scent is one of the most important elements in connecting to a memory.  Homesick Candles has managed to do that very well with their Southern California candle.  It smells of orange, a hint of cactus and of course, the ocean.  They are so lovely.

Last week we were making our way to The Laundress on Prince Street to pick up a bottle of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo when we came upon The Little Prince.  It was about 5 o’clock when everything looks magical in the late afternoon light.  It was that warm day last week that felt like Spring.  We ducked into The Little Prince for a quick bite before heading home.  How could we not?  I mean, could a little bistro be more inviting?

One of our favorite coffee shops last week was AP Cafe or AP A Place Creative in Bushwick, Brooklyn.  We came upon it completely by accident.  Don’t you love when that happens?  It’s a light filled cafe where you can meet with friends or get some work done while noshing on the most delicious breakfast burrito.  Are you following us @coffeeshopsofnewyork ? Where should we go next?  We love suggestions!  Have a beautiful weekend! xo annie

    Oh my goodness, that Little Prince place is so charming from the outside. I’ve heard about Hygge but not read much about it. It’s sounds like something I would enjoy reading, thanks.

    I admire your relationship with Madeline so much; so fun that you seem to spend so much time together when she is home. It’s heartwarming and something I desperately hope to have with my daughter when she is grown (she’s 15 months now ;))!

      Thank you Michelle for your sweet words. I have no doubt that you’ll do the same with your daughter when she’s 22. Fifteen months–I miss that age when everything is new. Enjoy every minute…it goes by fast. Have a lovely weekend.

    Hygge is new to me as well Annie but I love the concept. I am very picky with candles and have been on the lookout for a good one. I am going to give these a try. I can’t stand anything that smells like something you should eat for breakfast. I love anything citrusy and or fresh or woodsly. Loved this post so many great ideas!!

      Hi Cindy,
      I read that in Denmark they do not even count scented candles in the number of candles that people burn on a daily basis. While I love a beautifully scented candle, it’s really the light flickering that makes me happy!
