Thursday Threads #30

Alex dressed himself so well this Saturday I had to devote this week’s Thursday Threads to him! I love his pairing of purple (bought to match a dress of mine) with brown (which he bought all on his own – and they look awesome)...

See it at my new location! :)

You Amaze Me, Pasta

NPR recently did a story on The Geometry of Pasta, a new book put together by designer Caz Hildebrand and chef Jacob Kenedy. What a beautiful combination! There are so many types of pasta, which work both graphically (she’s filled the book with black and white illustrations of pasta shapes) and, of course, as food. Every pasta pairs well with different types of sauces and preparations (he’s filled the book with recipes). There are over 1,000 types of pasta and that is amazing.

If you can say anything about Texas, you can say we're proud of our state. And as I pulled out my burnt orange to wear Saturday, I thought, It's time for a Texas Etsy Finds!

We'll begin with the capitol (and my town) - in this adorable cuff by vsc83:
